If I were a guy, I'd want my name to be Dmitri. I've loved, loved, loved that name ever since high school and I developed my first literary crush on Dmitri from The Brothers Karamazov. Virginia is the name I would pick for myself. Two Reasons: It was my grandmother's name and it was also the name of the army commanded by Robert E. Lee (The Army of Northern Virginia). I'm a civil war nut and that man is like a god to me.
I understand that the question is 'If you could choose another first name?'
But, I don't want to . . .I like my first name and it has a rich history. My mamma had an aunt with the same name as mine, she was thought to be dead but was really locked away by her brother because she was bat-sh!t crazy.

Re: If you could choose another first name?
Hmmm I dunno, Yagoddamn-Bastard maybe, and yeah okay, so maybe it is one of them there oo lala fancy schmancy hoity toity hyphenated snottyish type handles, but since it already almost always grabs my attention, has for years, I probably wouldn't miss a beat...yeah I know, and think just how potentially rude could that be.
