My Name?

Postby Barack O'Drama » Fri Jul 19, 2013 8:24 am

So,

I will keep this quick:

Gregory or Greg. Which sounds more professional vis a vis LS/business world in general?

Thank you :)

I don't think Greg and Gregory are as professional as your name will need to be to succeed in the legal world. You should change your name to one of the most professional sounding names available. Here's a list to get you started:

    • Bernard
    • Learned
    • Edmund
    • Frederick
    • Rupert
    • Thaddeus
    • Tobias
    • Blair

If you're taking your legal career seriously, I think this is the only option you have. I understand this can be a very personal decision, but let us know which one you decide on.

With Tobias you can consider careers in the medical field as well.

In all seriousness, I've been using a diminutive and I do think it's caused people to take me less seriously on paper. I intend to go with initials from here on out. Unless I apply to teaching jobs, in which case "Miss Jenny" sounds like a better choice than Jennifer.

Miss Jenny, you can't ignore a man all throughout childhood and college, profess to love him only after his Apple stock starts paying dividends, die right after you bear his child, and then expect people to take you seriously.

Do you have a sweet middle name so you could have the power initial?

Like G. Brunswick Hawthorne?

I think that would do.

I'm in the same boat. I sort of feel like any girl's name diminutive with the "y" or "ie" sound: Jenny, Lizzie, Annie, etc is harder to take seriously than Jennifer, Elizabeth, Anne, etc. Especially since I'm already petite and look about five years younger than I actually am, I'm switching to using the non-diminutive of my first name in law school.

"She's changing her name from "Kitty" to "Karen", she's trading her MG for a white Chrysler LeBaron."

Michael Bolton's music hearkens back to a simpler time. A time where men and women found each other through a sea of people on the streets, without the assistance of online dating services. His dulcet tones wash over you with an initial vocal power which leads to a subtle pleasure shortly thereafter. He is, essentially, a vocal hottub.

TL;DR: shut your whore mouth, talkin bout Michael Bolton

This may be the creepiest sentence I've ever read. Well crafted.
