Day 03: Top five names you wish were yours.

This was a really hard one. I thought about it for some time but there simple is no way I could come up with five names that I wish were mine. That’s partly because I’m quite fond of my own name “Manuela” by now (yes, I know  I’m using a pseudonym around the web – but first of all, I started using the internet when nicknames were a big thing and secondly I just really got used to it and quite like the idea of this second persona, so get over it) and partly because there always was just one name that I literally adored: Julia.

And that’s how I can turn every question into one about the Beatles – who could see this coming. It’s of course no coincidence that John Lennon mother is named Julia and that he named his first son Julian Lennon. There also is a song by him called “Julia”, by the way. So as a early on Beatles fan I came across this name soon and I just really, really like it.

It’s hard to divide your feelings about something you like into little parts to look on every one individually. I guess I also like the name Julia so much, because I really like the sound of it (in English as well as German), I even think it looks nice because all the letters fit so nicely to each other (can’t turn of the graphic designer) and I never really had a relative or a friend called Julia – and this especially always kept it fresh and beautiful for me.

So I guess it’s the first major setback in my 30 days challenge, that I couldn’t come up with 5 great names that I whis were mine. But, to be honest, I think it’s better to give one real good one than five you don’t believe in.
