“Hi, My Name Is…”

December 23 – New Name. Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?

I kinda don’t like this prompt, because I don’t want to answer it. You see, I really like my name. I think it is pretty and unique, and I’m proud to Google myself and see a bunch of my websites, honors, and publications pop up.

So in all honesty, if I were given the option to introduce myself to strangers by another name, I wouldn’t do it. I do enough acting when I’m onstage – I don’t need to do it in real life too.

Yeah I know it’s kind of lame, but I feel really attached to my name. I thank my parents for picking it…and not going with my dad’s original idea – Roberta – yuck!
