1. Is the name you have now the same name that’s on your birth certificate? If not, what’s changed? I assume that this is the same name that is on my birth certificate (for the record, my name is Joseph L. Rogers). I was adopted has a young child and never knew my real parents. I guess the curious thing is with my nickname, which I won’t even post here. I kinda think that it might be my “real” name. However it is not that big of a deal, since my parents are the only ones who call me by that name.
2. If you could change your name (first, middle and/or last), what would it be? I don’t know what I would change my name too. I remember has a child, that my name sometimes
irked me, esp. when it was “Sloppy Joe” day at school, or if someone stayed home sick and watched Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. I also remember a week period where I tried to get my friends to call me J.R. That did not last long at all.
3. Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?) I assume that I was named after my dad and his dad (They were both Joseph Rogers’ too). Not sure if my dad is a Jr. or not though. I don’t think so. Just the middle names are different.
4. Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why? At one point, I wanted to have a daughter and name her Vanessa. I know that there are names that irk or bother me, however I can’t think of them right now. Wait…Kiefer. What kind of name is Kiefer?
