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 :)

Mike, Poland

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.

My sister used to beieve that when you become a "grown up" you change your name to an adult name. This was because adult names were like Helen or Richard and kid names were like Daniel and Nicole.

One Halloween when I was about 3, I was really afraid of all the trick or treaters comming to our door. My mom thought she could make everything better for me by explaining to me that all the monsters were just coming to get candy. I was terrified and ran to hid under my bed. It took her a little while to figure out I was so scared because my name is Candy and she had told me they were coming to get "candy".

My older brother's name is Dan and mine is Sam, so when my father would address me, he would usually say, "Damn!, er Da, Sam whatever your name is!" It was pretty confusing, especially when he got mad when I said, "Damn!" I mean what was wrong with saying my own name?

Damn- er Sam
