My name is Julie. When I was little my sister knew a girl named Julie, who was overweight and not attractive. I use to think anyone with the name Julie was going to turn overweight and ugly and that I was going ot turn out that way.
I used to believe that my doctor was Bill Gates - he looked a lot like him, and his last name WAS Gates... I was kind of disappointed when I found out that his first name was Tom.
When I was young, my mom always used to say "I have to do some errands." I have a younger brother named Aaron. So I used to think we were going out to do some "Aarons" and always jealously wondered if we would ever do some "Sandras."
When I was in 1st grade my friend and I went to latchkey before and after school. Well in the mornings there were these 2 kids from another school that would go to our latchkey program because they didn't have latchkey at their school. Their school was also a church and it was called, "Christ the King". When it was time for them to get on the bus to their school in the mornings the latchkey teacher would say, "Christ the King you have to go out to your bus." Well when the teachers said "Christ the King" my friend thought she was calling their names, and thought the two kids names were Christ and King.
When I was a kid there was a joke about people wanting or missing "Amanda Hugginkiss," which was supposed to sound like, "A man to hug and kiss." I did not understand this and kept wanting to know who this Amanda was.
Finally, one of my friends who had repeatedly tried to tell me that this was a joke when I asked her who this "Amanda" person was that everyone seemed to know but me, told me, "Look, never mind, she used to go to this school, okay?"
Years later, I figured it out.
When i was like 5 years my brother told me that i was ugly. For a while i belived him. Then i went to ask my other brother if i was ugly and he said i was! Considering I didn't know what ugly was i went to ask my mom. She said that i was beautiful so i went to school kindergarten the next day and went around and told everyone i was ugly and beautiful! My teacher didn't approve and i got a note home so i started calling myself Nicole. (My name)
My name is Cara...When I was little, my family owned a caravan. When my parents sold the caravan and bought a voyager, I thought I would have to change my name to Voya!
I used to believe that the name of the painting 'American Gothic' was 'Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.' I don't know why.
For the longest time I always thought babies where borned with Name Tags. So that people knew what to called them.
When I was a child I used to think my parents didn't have names. I remember when I started answering the phone people would call, and ask for my mother or father. I would inquisitivly ask who?? Then I'd tell my mom or dad, and they'd be like I'll talk to them. I thought their name was mom and dad.
I decided when I was in Kindergarden that my name would no longer be Molly, it would now be Dora. I made everyone call me Dora, and much to the frustration to my Kindergarden teacher, I didn't stop for several months.
i used to belive that if you had an name that was common among old people,(such as bob, ina, ethel, henry) you would live longer than if your name was uncommon. i was sad because my mom made up my name.
I used to think that girls could only have girl names and boys could only have boy names. I'm a girl, so my name must have been a girl's name. It wasn't util recently that I remembered this belief and realized my name is a boys name.
When I was little, I used to think that if you had twins, you had to name them the same name, and dress them in the same clothes.
I have a younger brother called Zac. In New Zealand, ANZAC day is a war holiday thingy. My brother was about 5 and he asked me what ANZAC day was. I told him it was the day they eat all the Zacs. He started crying, and asked mum if he was gonna be eaten. She had no idea what he was on about.
One time my sister and brother told me that my last name was clothes hanger. and after that i used to tell everybody that my name was Ashley Clotheshanger.
When I was 11, I thought that Newt Gingrich was really named Nude Gingrich.
My middle name is Neiah which is pronounced "near" and when i was about 10 (i'm now 13) my Mum told me that she actually wasn't sure how to pronounce my middle name (my Dad got it out of a book) and it might actually be pronounced "Nay" which totally mortified me as my first name is Jay (not shortened). I was very naive at the time and told a group of mates that my middle name might be pronounced "Nay" which destroyed my self confidence. I asked my Dad if Mum was right and he said she was lying but the damage has allready been done. I have no idea who to belive and I am now fully embarrased by my middle name and if i'm asked i say i havn't got one.
I used to think people with old-lady sort of names (Helen, Betty, Betsy, etc) would age twice faster than anybody else. I also felt special because my name was a young-ish sort of name!
