If my name was to represent my identity, it would be something much more creative and fun.
My name isn’t unique, or uncommon, in fact it’s been used as a name for decades thanks to its origin of “Angel”.
Angela means the exact same as Angel just written in a feminine way which is why I just don’t see this name as cool as any others.
The act of kindness and traits as pure and innocent don’t really represent my identity in a way that it’s not what I would see or describe myself as.
Even if my name means something that isn’t me, I wouldn’t change it because the irony is already a part of who I am.
My name is like wearing a different outfit everyday but still keeping one thing the same. No matter the outfit, I might always wear something black. That black represent something that will always be the same for me. Something people can recall about me. That’s my name. I can’t promise I will be the same person I was last year, a few months ago, or yesterday. The same people constantly see me maybe with a different expression and attitude but who i am and the way i speak will always be the same. My name is just a word to let others communicate with me and catch my attention in a way i can respond. It was something without meaning that was given to me without thought. If I could change it, I wouldn’t because then I would get lost in a world where thinking too much about something that isn’t that important can really change me. I don’t want to change something I don’t care too much about. It’s a weird relationship I have with my name because if I keep it, I don’t think much about it and i’m not sure how to feel about that. But if I change it, I won’t feel like like myself. I’m not saying my name is supposed to represent who I am because you can’t judge others just based on their name especially since it was something given to you and not your decision. My name is what I look like but not who I am.Tags: #WhoIam identity Life Academy of Health and Bioscience MyNameMeaning NameMemoir
