It's your opportunity to be someone else for the day. Or, like Phoebe from Friends you could call yourself Princess Consuela Banana Hammock.
I grew despising my name. I still hate it now, but not as much. A Finnish man in a pub once told me that I could shame my name, but my name could never shame me. Saying that, when you've got a surname which is often used as a synonym for a ladies front bottom, it can get a bit upsetting at times. In my late teens and early twenties I was adamant that I was going to change my name to Aurora McCallum (Guess why I chose that as a surname). I never did.
