    National Name Yourself day. When I was a tender young idiot, I thought the name Rachael was pretty. As I've gotten older I am not as fond of the name, but maybe would have grown attached if it was mine. I have a hard enough time narrowing down a list of baby names, I can't even imagine trying to rename myself at this point. Do you have a name you wished was yours?

    National Winston Churchill day. He was a good wartime leader with a sharp wit. What's your favorite quote?
    "I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly."

    Here's to a themeless WDT.

    Happy weekend! I'm looking forward to getting some work done around here.

    I never liked my name; it's Ken, which sets me up for a lifetime of jagoffs asking me where Barbie is.
    In addition, for a three letter name, people mispronounce/ misspell it with surprising regularity.
    Common mistakes I hear are "Kim, Kit, Kid, Tim."

    When I was growing up, I always thought that "Wayne" was a really cool name (and before anyone asks, it's NOT because of "Wayne's World".), and used that as an alias in highschool.

    I have an uncommon first and last name, and my first name is spelled similarly to a common name, but pronounced completely differently.

    Growing up, I just desperately wished that my name was like that of some of my friends - "Kevin Smith" "Kyle Fox" "Joe White." Easy, short, nobody ever mispronounced them. They didn't have to correct every teacher who ever read a roll call for the first time. They didn't have to spell it out every time they verbalized their name.

    Now that I'm older I don't mind it. But if you had asked me when I was 10, I would have changed my name in a second.

    I have a remarkably common name for the time in which I was born: Bob (Robert). Despite it’s banality I’ve never wanted a different name. There’s comfort in numbers.

    Since moving, I haven’t once heard the joke every single music store customer made about my name. I’m cool with that.

    Kyle is a “fucking gay name,” or so I was told growing up.

    I never would have thought that Kyle was a unisex name growing up, but I've met two female Kyles in the last four years.

    They were both older than me. I guess it's an old Scottish thing from before the name got associated with Monster energy drinks and punching holes in drywall.

    I’ve always liked being named Chris, but my last name sucks because it’s close to a common last name— so it’s constantly misspelled and mispronounced, including on my graduation photo, public school diploma and many other things.

    Oh, and if your birth name is Christopher and choose to call yourself “Topher”, I just want you to know I masturbate to the fantasy of watching your exposed genitals getting slowly sucked under the bottom of a mall escalator.

    Yeah, “Kyle” is weird for a girl. I have a cousin named “Kylie” that is the same age as me, which is also a little weird.

    If Meatspin is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

    Name is Sam. My parents said if I was a girl it was “Samantha.” I like it. Not super common for whatever reason. There’s some really weird names out there, and I cannot stand the trend of crazy spellings. Those children will not grow up to be “Unik,” they’ll grow up to hate their parents for it.

    and @dixiebandit69 are we rolling with the full Kenneth or is just regular Ken?

    Ross here.

    "Oh my god... Like from FRIENDS?!" was heard on a daily basis for a long time, and every now and then these days it'll pop up as well.

    I got a rep suggesting my name is Michael Bolton. Fuck it, we’ve been here for years now, and my name is common enough.

    It’s Joe. I like it, but every fucking day. “Hey Joe, where you goin’ with that gun in your hand?” Or “Hey Joe - you know, that could be a song!”

    It’s not that it was demeaning, it’s that everybody thought it was the most novel joke ever.

    New hires would make the Hendrix joke, and just like Mary’s excuse, I told them, you only get to use it once.
