I've been dressing in one way or another for oh, around 37 years but you know what, I've never found a name that stuck with me. And before I hit 50 in a few months' time, I'd like to crack that particular nut - with your help if possible!
I mentioned to Mistress Darklady my predicament and she was very kind - and shared her way of naming with me. Because of this I've narrowed it down to two choices:
Amanda or Adele
Amanda was the first name I ever used online but I was wary of that 'man' syllable in it. But you know, maybe that's just silly. There are plenty of women called Amanda after all, although not all with our backstory... But it flows with my second name as well I think, not that people often use their middle names.
Adele is not one I've ever considered really. I'm not a fan of the singer and the only Adele I've known didn't leave a good impression! Also, it might be nice to be able to use a shortened version sometimes, which is trickier here.
But to be honest, I'm at a loss when it comes to picking between the two.
So if you have a moment or two - and looking at me on TVChix might help, my username is rebecca_hi - I would really value your thoughts. Unlike some people on that site I know Mistress Darklady's girls are polite and thoughtful, which is why I am asking here.
Thank you so much in advance for your thoughts.
Amanda / Adele (!)
thank you both so much for your thoughts and insights.
i think you're right, shelley, me worrying about it so much is really trying to fix something small when something much larger needs attention, as we discussed earlier!
owing to Mistress Darklady giving me a little guidance and her thoughts, i've decided to go with adele - i'd missed the diminutives of ele or elie, which i rather like.
thanks again xxx!
just my opinion but i find amanda is a pretty name should you choose it... becoming the gurl you are it's likely others won't see any hind of the m.a.n. word on seeing your beauty ...then again i like rebecca as well ..you can be a rebecca or a becky or even a becca depending on your mood. peace, DLC's alyssa
