My very much not welsh mother wanted to call me Yian. Luckily my very not much welsh father intervened

My siblings were given my grandparents names as their middle name. I was given my middle name because my dad went to the registry office, hadnít talked about a middle name with my mum, panicked when filling out the form and chose the first one that came into his head
Is your middle name "Please ring for attention"?

My dad wanted to give me the paternal family name while my mum wanted to name me after her dad who died the month before I was born. They couldn't agree so ended up with neither.

Most annoying thing is that I share my name with my dads cousin which seems so daft unless there's a family scandal I'm yet to be told.

I find the naming process quite stressful... which reminds me.

I was going to say "quiet please, ceremony in progress"  Smiley

Please. Tails is to Sonic what Samwise is to Frodo. He's the real MVP.

I would have been called Sharon apparently.

which would be confusing, because that's my younger sister's name.
