I always kind of wondered why we had middle names. I figured that they were around, like second-place winners and understudies, in case our "real" names were somehow unable to fulfill their duties as name and had to step back or take a breather for a little while.

in kindergarten we would to leave the class to go home: one line for "bus" kids and one line for "walkers". I always got in the walkers line because that is my mom's maiden name. I always wondered how they knew. It was also a good thing that I actually DID walk home

When I was little, and i would hear my family talking about me, they would always say "the kid" so i assumed that was my name. Whenever I wanted anything I would say "The Kid wants food!" or "The Kid wants a hug!"

When I was three, I believed only one person in the world could have each name. Anytime anyone with the same name as me introduced themselves, I would scream "NO FAIR! NO FAIR! YOU STOLE MY NAME!"

I used to think that your name was your destiny, so whatever your name meant, you had to become/witness. Once I knew a kid named Cayden, which means round or lumpy, and I told him that some day he would turn into a potato... I got in trouble for that!

My middle name is Viola, but for the longest time, I thought it was Vagina. I was sure all little girls had the middle name Vagina, so that doctors would be sure we were girls.

It confused me, however, that my brother's middle name was Joseph and not Penis.

As a young child (maybe around 8) in the 90's I had a teenage cousin named Tonya with frizzy blonde hair that lived in Oregon. I didn't know much about her other than that. From watching TV, I became convinced that my cousin was actually Tonya Harding, and that my family just never talked about it because they were too ashamed of her.

I thought my real name was Marmite and that I was only called Rosie to stop others getting me confused with marmite spread.
My Grandad would always say 'My Mate Marmite' to me when I was really young.
I wasn't aware that it was an advertising slogan.

When I was like 3 or 4, I thought people were born with their name. For example, if you're name was Jenny, when you were born, you had a little sign around your neck with "Jenny" written on it! Don't ask me where I came up with this. I was a weird child.

I used to believe that everyone who had the same name, looked alike. E.g. my father's name is Harold, so everyone named Harold looked exactly like my father...

I once thought of most names in the world, there were three people with that name, one who goes to school, one who doesn't go to school, and one who is an adult. But for rare names there was only one person with that name.
