STAMP - A Name

By caat
I'm one of those people that likes to be referred to by my actual name. Of course for security reasons and whatnot, it's best not to use your whole name for most stuff. But getting to call people by their first name is something special for me - it makes those I'm talking with seem more real.

I don't feel offended getting referred to by my web acronym or anything, but its just kinda impersonal, is all. XD

I understand that way of internettage is not for everyone. But for those of you who don't mind being referred to by your real first name, here's a stamp! 8)

I have a name as well but I just get pissed off at people who refer to me by the name of a character I created, specifically if it's an internet troll. I had to deal with people from sites I shall not mention calling me 'werejohncandy' 'werejoshpeck' 'were-whatever', and well...i'm going to flat out say this, they're not real, they're characters I created for fun and nothing more.  I don't even take my own characters seriously,  I don't claim to be them in real life and I most certainly am not them.  The former aforementioned character is the one that is the least like me.  My name is Nathan, and yes that is my actual character's name too.  I just get pissed off when annoying people like that refer to me as my character's names,  it's like they're judging me solely based on my characters.  Yeah i'm Drmusic2-1/Drmusic2,  or rather I used to be (and I fucking hate how I acted back when that was my account name back when I had that account),  but i'm a human being.

I like when people refer to me as Nat or Nathan, or Nate.

Someone understands!! 
I usually stress to new friends to call me by my name, but they don't really do so until we feel more comfortable with one another; when they finally call me by my name or give me a nickname, it confuses me for a second, but it definitely deepens the bond!

I'm in a very lucky position on this.
I go by Kris at school, online, and it's my username on some sites I visit.
But Kris is my nickname. Not my first official name, although because how far it's gone, I get "Kris" by my name on school documents.
I always hated my real name when I liked Crystal in kindergarten, and changed the spelling over the years, and have been going by Kris for quite a while now.
I think in the last 2 years or so, I've dropped the "tal" as well.

My uncle thinks it's just a phase, everyone wants to change it at one point, but those people are ignoring how long I've had to get used to it, among other things. ^_^

I truly prefer Kris over Cedar. Only my family calls me that, there really is no confusion.
Haha. If I talk to anyone online, there's usually a chance to introduce each other anyway

I only ever had a phase where I wanted to change my last name, I've always liked my first one.

Having said that, I know people that are better known by their nicknames than real ones - someone who is referred to by his middle name by everyone, even his parents XD

Gemma, I feel the same way. I sorta want people to use my first name when speaking to me, too. BTW My name is Emma. Funny? Yes. =3 XD
