  1. I love this! And boy can I relate lol. My teachers never got my name right. I was always Dorida or Doreen. Really? How hard could it be. I didn’t like my name and wondered why my parents would do this to me!! Now? I love it. My family calls me Dor, which is fine by me. I have to admit though, I love your nickname “ six cents”. Ever consider becoming a rapper? 😉


  2. I feel your struggle. My name is LaBranda. I could go for days telling you all the names that were made up of mine…
