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!
my brother who is 2 years older than me, told me that he was king of the phillipines because his name was philip. i believed that up until i was about 7 and got more sense, though he still kept on insisting it was true...he neva gave up!
When I was little, I used to think my parents ahd the same middle name as me. I criend when I found out they didn;t have the smae middle names
I used to think that "Unknown" was a real name. when I went to a Cematary in Washington D.C. and I saw all The Unknowns I thought it was one really tall guy that needed a huge space to be buried! I also thought that "Unknown" was really special because he had a gaurd and realth layings (the Tombof The Unknown) I was 8 at the time.
I used to believe that one had a name when they were little and when they grew up their first name changed.
When I very little my parents used to call me Aja (Asia) the pill because i always bugged them. On my first day of Pre-school we did the name game where you go around the circle and tell everyone your name, and yes as you can guess i thought my name was really Aja the pill. My mom was so embarassed when the teacher confronted her.
I used to believe that i was the only person in the world who had my name. My nickname was Cassie, but it was used so often, it just kinda became my name. I was very angry when another girl in my small catholic elementary school stole my name from me. I had to be called Catherine instead, my real name. I hated it.
My middle name is Elizabeth, and while I like that name now, I thought it was horrible as a young child. It was a disgusting name, and I was so embarrassed by it that when people would ask what my middle name was, I would say I didn't have one.
When I was little, I used to think that your appearance was based on your name. Like, for instance, all of the people named Sarah would look alike. I based this on the fact that my aunt, whose name was Barbara looked like Barbara on "One Day at a Time." My mom explained to me that Barbara was just a character's name and that the actress' real name was Valerie. I didn't really understand, but I then decided that I wished my parents had named me Valerie so that I would grow up to look like Valerie Bertinelli
when i was little my mom told me i was named after her dog that died before my birth,so i use to think that i was a dog before i was born then i died and came back a human ,when i tell people i was named after a dog they start laughing because it not very day that you meet a human with a dog / human name.
in 2nd grade we took a test to get into the GATE program (gifted and talented education) on all my info after getting into the program my name had a @ sign at the end. My name is Samantha so i thought that the office thought it was a cool way to write my name. With a @ sign instead of an A. I thought I was so special.
I used to think that you had a child's name and an adult's name, and although your parents chose your child's name, when you grew up you could choose a new grown-up name.
Min was gonna be Carol.
when i was little i thought everyone had a twin who had the same name and lived somewhere far from them and one was evil and one wasnt
Back when I had a babysitter, when I around 4 there was only one other kid there, named Magoo. And I was conVINCED he was THE Mr.Magoo from the cartoon. So I always used to scold him for not wearing his glasses and would run ahead of him to open doors and guide him an stuff so he didn't get into trouble again. XD
I used to believe that any word that sounded good could be a name. This had unfortunate side effects-my brother got ill and had to have medicine. I asked my mum what it was, and she said it was called Paracetamol.
Guess what happens next..
I loved the name Paracetamol. My grandma bought me a new toy horse. I named it Paracetamol.
(When she asked why, I said
"Because it's never been called anything else!", which I guess was true :)
