My name is Aline and when I was younger my brother had a poster of an Alien on the wall and under it it had the word Alien written on it. I thought that was my name and for quite awhile and I was secretly an Alien spy on a mission to take over the world. I remember I used to try to contact my planet by running around outside with a paper sign I made. They never did come back for me......:(

when I was in kindergarten a girl I knew told me that she could only be my friend if I was a christian. Never having heard the term before I asked her what a christian was. She told me that a christian is someone who has the same middle name as their mom. Since my mom and I share the same middle name, I decided that I must be a christian and that the girl and I would be friends.

My niece publicly chastised her mother church one day for introducing her to someone named Dick, much to the embarrassment of her mother and the gentleman. My niece thought her mother was referring to the man by the slang term for male genitalia, not realizing that it is an actual name.

I was 15 when my youngest brother was born. When he was 3, by sheer coincidence the milkman, the garbage man,the guy who ran the deli, and the dry cleaner man were all named George. David got the idea that all male strangers were named "George" (as in "The George at the ice cream store gave me a cookie.") The rest of us kids thought it was funny, and for years we addressed all unintroduced males as "George". You'd be surprised how many men will happily answer to George!

There's a popular book in Poland called "Mr. Kleks Academy". It's a bit Potter-ish to say the truth: the Professor, Mr. Kleks teaches his young and eager students how to fly a carpet or understand the speech of dogs. When I was young I desperately wanted to attend the school some day. Unfortunately, only those whose name started with "A" had a chance to take part in this ecceptional educational adventure.

My parents gave me the name of Michael. At six, it caused me to fall apart from them a little :)

Now, when I'm 19 I come to realise that I shouldn't have quarelled with them... My second name is Antony :)

When I was little I used to think that if your name was Christian that you were somehow more religious and spiritual than everyone else. You were "special". If your name was Christian, then you were related to God and you knew things that no one else did. Why else would you be named after a religion if you weren't related to God? Christian was a pretty popular name in my area. When my sister brought home a friend named Christy, I thought it was short for Christian and that she was going to spy on me and tell God all the bad things I did.

I used to have really long hair, so when I finally decided to get in cut in 3rd grade, I was told that the girl that would cut my hair's name was Cindy. My mother had a horse named Cindy, and I pictured the horse in a cape behind me cutting my hair.

i never understood how/why each culture had such different types of names. i asked my mom how people come up with such unusual names for their children and she said each culture has their own technique....for example the chinese drop a frying pan on the ground and whatever sound it makes is the name of the child.
