Whats All In A Name

Whats All In A Name

A Story by Avanthika
"

just came across a funny topic

"

Every lovable idiot is never called with their real name. Take your own example, the list goes on, right? Even your parents who gave you your name, will never call you by your real name. At home you will have a pet name, at school you will have a nickname, at college most probably you will have a bad name. After marriage you get a surname, if you are a writer you opt a pen name and if you are famous, you become a stage name. At the end you forget your own real name which you have to rename.
 So,
What is your name?

Avanthika,

The concept is good and is a rare thought no doubt. However, there are a few mistakes and especially crucial ones as per the context...

Surname: First, it is a single word and secondly this is not the one which one gets after marriage. Surname is indeed a the name (last name as we call) which is inherited from my family.

Example: My name is Dipanjan Dutta where Dutta is my surname. Being a male by no chance I am going to get a name after marriage but still I hold a surname now and will always hold it

Same goes with pen name. This has nothing to do with death. It is an assumed name taken up by writers instead of their real names.

I honestly did like the context but these mistakes somehow supressed the approach. Please consider revising and let me know if I am mistaken somewhere.

thanks a lot Angad, indeed we all have to try differently i guess, thats what we call creativity.
Well I have no idea about stage name, pen name after death, or after marriage. but I had so many names in college given to me by my friends. Its an amazing feeling. You get a nick name signifies you are an amicable personality. You are being liked and loved. What else you need for a happy living. Now when I read this post, I got reminded of it again. Many thanks.
