  • What is the meaning of your name? (Ask your parent/guardian, then compare it to the below website to find the official meaning)
  • What is the story behind your name? Why were you named as you were?
  • What other names were considered?
  • Were you named after someone? Who and why?
  • Who made the final decision to name you?

  • How do I feel about my name? Do I like it? Dislike it? Why?
  • Do I think my name properly represents me?
  • How do others respond to my name?
  • If I could change my name, what would I change it to? List three then explain why you chose them.
