Share Your World For 2/13/23

This week, Di shared some questions from Marla. Using videos instead of GIF’s, because they’re more apropos

If you could rename yourself, what name would you choose and why? Gee, I’m kinda used to John; I’ve had it for so long. Mom wanted to name me William, after my father, but Dad said he didn’t want a junior. Maybe some other form of John: Juan? Jean? Johann? Hans? Giovanni? Jaciu? Ivan? Ian? Jan? Or another form of William: Guillermo? Liam? Wolf? Wilhelm? Guillaume? Guglielmo? The possibilities are endless…

If you were tasked with naming a new star, what would you name it and why? Edwin! Then it would be Edwin Star!

If you were a story/comic book hero, what would your name be and why? CAPTAIN WHIZ! I’d rather not say why…

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest? Oh, without a doubt, cats…

Here’s a link to my favorite Subreddit.

That’s it for this week!

  1. My niece changed her name from Jade to Camden and now I must say They and my brother’s child. I always loved my name and never wanted to change it.
    I think I would call the star Archibald or Gaylord.
    I love Capt. WHIZ. I would call myself WonderPlug…think about it.
    I love all the music you chose and love Greatest American Hero…fun show.
    Cats can be evil and that was too funny. The poor mom who woke up with a mouse in her mouth. Yuck a doozie


    1. I never watched “Greatest American Hero,” mostly because it was scheduled against whatever we did watch. Would’ve been a good reason to have a VCR, which were brand new and very expensive.

      All the other men named John in my family are called Jack, except my grandfather after whom I was named. I spent a week at a music “camp” a few years ago, and one of the instructors asked whether I was called John or Jack. I told him John, and from that point on I was Jack. It was kind of weird…


  2. I had a friend at uni who changed his first name after graduation – my gosh, the constant explaining why he’d changed it and people getting confused and all the paperwork. It was far more trouble than changing my surname after I got married. If I’d been thinking about changing my name that would have put me right off.


    1. When we got married, Mary went to downtown Chicago to change her name with Social Security. It looked like she did everything right, then a number of years later (more than ten) we discovered that they never put the paperwork through, and we had to fix her name again.
