I like the name Josephine (having nothing to do wiht Napoleon's Josephine, who hated him). I like my own name, but if it was anything different (which I wouldn't want), I guess Hannah would be all right...

I guess I like old fashioned names...

I dunno what I would want my name to be, but I hate my current name. Both my first and last names are common (although my first name has an unusual spelling) so I feel like a boring person. Anyway, if I do something important in the future and end up in history books, I would seem out of place (Think about most historic names, they are generally not average names (except for maybe John Smith))

Exactly, a name is something that is only remembered to attach to the famous person, it wont matter how common your name is as long as you do something deserving of fame.

My name IS Victoria, and it's a nice name, unless you are getting called it because you are in trouble. But I guess you can say that about any name. I used to hate being a Victoria, I have finally gotten used to it.

It's also a great way to tell who knows me and who doesn't, I go by Vickie, so if someone is calling for a Victoria, I know they want money or something.
