A lot of people hate their first name. I don't like mine but I have to live with it so....but it does date me and I see my first name in obitiuaries now.
When I was in my 'teens in the hospital, they could never get my name right on my ID tag. They named me Shannon, Shane, Sean (hey! I'm female!), and others that started with an "S." That was scary because of other patients but my last name was kind of rare, so they could tell me from the others. Of course, I got a new ID tag when they figured it out.
