Isn’t there a lot to a persons name? Or is that what I believe? I don’t know! May be both visible and Invisible elements are attached to one’s name? One’s roots, identity, history and sometimes even one’s caste maybe associated, right?
And then for some their name might not mean anything at all.
My name is a special name and I love it. But it is soooo hard for people in office to pronounce my name. Some people stress the first syllable, some others stress too much on the second and then some others just misspell the name.
Is my name so hard to pronounce? I bet, it’s not that tough !! Anyways, for whatever tHe reason may be, I hate people when they Mispronounce / Misspell my name ! 😐
Some of my friends changed their last name after marriage. And some of us did not. I belong to the latter. Changing the name involved a lot of paper work. I was not ready to do any of those stupid procedures.
We, south Indians do not have a family name. We mostly use our fathers name as our last name. Lemon’s fathers’ name and my dad’s name are the same. If I were to change my name I would have to keep Lemon’s first name as my last name. If I do that we wouldn’t have a common last name.
So it was a very convenient choice for me to just keep my fathers name as my last name even after marriage.
And everyone thought that our last name is our family name.
Now people. Do judge all that you want! I’m not changing my name!!
