Let's talk about your name. A counter-culture conversation!

"A rose by any other name" blah-blah. Hey, there's so much more to human names.

“Noooooooooooooooooooooo” I wanted to scream into my newspaper this morning.

I was reading the advice column by Carolyn Hax. Usually her columns is one of my favorite parts of The Washington Post. But today? Ouch!

Let’s play advice columnist today, Blog-Buddies. I’ll add my bit and then you can add your responses in the form of comments. Even if Carolyn doesn’t read any of them. (Sure, I will send her a link, but Carolyn Hax must receive about a zillion emails per day.)

Here was the original question from “Name Change”

“I’m in my 40s and heading to graduate school for a completely different career. I’ve always hated my first name — it sounds great for a child but does not transfer very well as a professional name. I’d like to change it as I embark on my new direction but I feel silly being my age and sounding like I’m having an identity crisis. Thoughts?”

Name Change Research, Kathryn’s Triumph and Guest Post


Blog-Buddies, it’s always such a privilege when I facilitate the special kind of Aura Reading Research about names. So many of us are saddled with first and/or last names that wouldn’t work well for a horse and don’t work for us humans, either.

Kathryn formerly had a name that didn’t suit her at all. Let’s call it “Gladys.” Recently she did a session of Name Change Research with me and found a name that produced glorious consequences for her full set of chakra databanks under investigation. (They ranged through topics like emotional self-awareness, career success, ability to earn money, and having a fabulous love life.)
