If your parents named you Prince or Princess would you keep your name or change it?

Prince or Princess Norris has a nice ring to it, and I wouldn't be confused with an unemployed MTV vj.

Dan said...

Depends if the made me keep my last name. If I were just "Prince" I'd definitely keep. Otherwise no.

Cate said...

Could I be Principessa?

Both are stupid names, except maybe for dogs, so I'd change mine. Well...except if I got to be a REAL princess just by virtue of my name and could wear a tiara every day for the rest of my life.

i'd change it for sure because i associate the name princess with blonde girls who wear pink all the time. and i'm a brunette who wears lots of purple...totally different. plus i don't want to be one of those people that when people hear my name they think my parents were either high on drugs or just really hated me.

I would probably unofficially change it around first grade (I totally wanted to be Dana Hall) then I would legally change it when I was older. I don't think I could go by Princess. People wouldn't buy it. I don't think Princesses wish they had a 'Farts are Funny' tshirt.

Also, Karen's response made me think of all the people with interesting names I knew growing up:
Kelly Kelley
Kate Cady (I love you friend)
Sterling Love Pond

Don't think I would enjoy having either of those names, but I am named after royalty. :)

As far as grade school odd names...
I knew a Harry Gonzo and a Tree Crowefoot.

Ciao,
Queen Victoria

My parents didn't need to name me Princess. I already was one.

You can't forget Precious! True story I have worked with a lot of women with that name... Wait, what about..... Precious Princess????

I'm going down to the courthouse tomorrow and changing my name to Duke or maybe Count. I'd rather be lower down on the totem pole . . . less responsibility.
