new name

December 23 – New Name. Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why? (Author: Becca Wilcott)

I’d be Amelia, because for quite some time I seriously considered changing my name to Amelia. However, the last couple of years I’ve been happier with my given name. I still might change it at some point, but not right now. As to why THAT name… I like it, and one of my grandmother’s cousins was named Amalia, which makes me feel as though I’d be remembering her through it.
