Interesting prompt from plinky, they asked me what name I would choose if I had my pick.
I remember when I was a child, I proud enough with my own name, coz I never found any friend with the same name. As far as I remember I never imagine another name for myself. But, after I grow up, as a teenager I often hope for another name. I find my name not as pleasant as I wish for. I want "cool" name, I want name with amazing meaning behind it (I was disappointed when I knew the origin of my name – from my mom favorite TV show – I used to think it wasn't cool at all). I used to imagine, what if my mom gave me another name, will I be the same person as I am now? Is a name will change someone else life? What's in a name…
After a while, and passed my teenage time, I had no complain anymore. I felt happy being me. I no longer have the desire to change my name. After all, if I could change my name, I'm so not going to go through the trouble I'm facing, such as changing the birth certificate, driving license, etc. So, because I couldn't and wouldn't change my own name, I wished to give a name to my future child. But due to the lack of desire to get married in the near time, one thing I could is give a name of another person's child. My sister unborn child. Luckily me, she was willing to accept my opinion. I have list of names, most of it are Latin and Sansekerta names. Some of the names are :
– Freya Amabel Ratnamaya. Freya comes from skadinavia language that has meaning noble woman. Amabel comes from Latin, meaning generous. And Ratnamaya comes from Sansekerta, meaning pleasant person.
– Larisa Marva Rasendriya. Larisa from Russia, meaning cheerful woman. Marva from Latin, meaning beautiful. And Rasendriya from Sansekerta, meaning sharp senses.
Well, my list still going on, finger cross that my sister would love to use one of my idea to her baby. If that happens, I'm gonna be the most happily aunt. At least my dream names wouldn't a dream anymore.
