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 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.

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.

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.
