    Unhappy people make fun of my name.

    hey everyone so i was named something very uncommon , after a drug yes haha so funny laugh idc but at school whenever people see or hear my name they start laughing and it really annoys me I go by something else in school but in the office and roster and test and stuff obviously i have to use my first name. I really want to change it but i don't want to hurt my moms feelings because whenever i bring it up she gets upset and changes the subject.. how can i just ignore all of the rude comments? (im in 8th grade)

    Re: people make fun of my name.

    I worked in a senior school for many years, and it was not uncommon at all to have a note against a student's record "preferred name; use XXXXXXX". The real name must be on the core record, but everything else can be the person's preference. Once you are legally of age, you can change your name officially. I always hated my first name which is an unusual one, and hard to pronounce. I have only ever met 2 other people with the same name. I was teased at school which was a pain. Now I like it. Cheers, Sera (not the real name)
