I am another one named after "Hollywood's Sweetheart". In my classes there was always a Debbie One, and a Debbie Two. And sometimes a Debbie Three.

When I got to college, I decided to become a Debra, and that has stuck. Except with my mom. Who calls me Becky. (My sister's name.)

I have a 6 letter first name, and middle initial, and an 11 letter last name, and I am so tired of signing it, I decided I would change my name to Jo Ng!

Oh, Goodness, if we could have been given the shortened number versions instead of the "drawled" out middle names after our first name "Debbie". Mrs. Williams could have called me "Debbie googooplex" and I would have far preferred it over her "Debbie ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN". I personally like Deborah as well, sparrowgrass, and have used it the last 10 years or so.

How funny! I'm exactly the opposite. I love my name but not the shorter versions like Barb, Barbie, etc. My Aunt Nancy calls me Barbie and so did my Uncle Glen sometimes. I never minded them calling me that--in fact I liked it, but just them and no one else. My sister used to tease me by calling me Babs. My family just never was much for nicknames. The only time I call my daughter or granddaughter anything other than Nancy and Hannah is when I am playing and call them Nancy Jeanie Beanie and Hannah Banana or Hanner Nanner, and my grandson is never anything but Andrew.

I am very thankful that my mom didn't name me what she wanted to name me (although I am bothered by the fact that my biological father didn't take her choice seriously and just said no both times--she wanted it for my sister too). She wanted to name me Trina Lynn or Trina Marie. THAT is just not me at all!

I hated my name when I was in school, the biblical spelling of Deborah.

For the record, I also hated Debbie, Deb, Debi, Deby, Debby, Debbi, Debra, Debrah, Debora & the Debmeister (looong story!).

Now, it's not so bad. It's too late for me, but if I ever have a daughter, we'll name her Brooke or Brit- something that can't be shortened to a nickname.

I have the most ordinary real name in the world. You can hardly even shorten it.

Therefore, I gave my daughter a four-syllable name with many variations.

Think I'll call myself Desdemona from now on.

(From what I was told) In Scotland the first son was named after the grandfather..the second after the Father. the girls the same way after the Grandmother and Mother.So my sis is Mary Ann pronounced as one name and I became Margaret after Mother.
