I would be Richter. Richter Belmont.

It has been my alter ego before in Las Vegas.

I DID name myself. I'm Buck.

Good grief! While typing this I hit a wrong key and changed my name to Guck. Yuck!

Anyway, still the same old harmless, loveable little fuzzball. Buck.

Call me anything you want, just don't call me late for dinner.

I'm beginning to like my name! It's Kyra - like Shakira minus the sha, not like rhyming with Tyra. I used to hate it because everyone pronounced it wrong and occasionally people would forget it altogether, so they'd call me whatever they could think of that began with a K. I've even gotten Carol a few times? Lol. Now, though, I like the uniqueness of my name. I don't think I'd change it given the chance.

Kyra is an awesome name!
I should name my next cat/dog that (that's a compliment by the by)

Has anyone just gave you a new name and had a hard time calling you by your real name or a version of it? I have been called June, Julie, and Jenny. My name does not even start with a "J". But my greats grandmothers did who were born in the 1700's. ???

Like mine?

I love my name, for either gender, and I would have chosen it for myself if my parents hadn't already done so.

At least my children have always liked their names----short names (Chris and Kari) with a long "Germanic" last name that has 12 letters total and has six consonants in a row--it's one that most people butcher trying to pronounce and considered even rare in Germany. I remember teaching first graders who would put their heads down on their desks and cry because they had to print out such long first names such as "Benjamin" . I vowed that I would never do that to my children.
