Branwen23 Nostalgia: nicknames and name calling (79* d) RE: Nostalgia: nicknames and name calling 23 Jan 01

Growing up with a name like Branwen I got picked on a lot... Never in any grade, in any school, did a single teacher pronounce my name correctly when reading the roster on the first day of school.

To the other kids, I was known as, well, let see how many I can remember... Brawny, Brownie, Brownwin, Bran Muffin, Bratwurst, Broomstick... the list goes on... Made me secretly plot my revenge on my mom for naming me that... But I'm a lot more comfortable with it now... not that I don't have similar problems with adults... ;)
