    Pretty name.

    It's a pity your ideas are all wrong...

    I think your name is very important to you, its really annoying when someone forgets your name and keeps calling you someone else

    I wouldnt change my first or last name well except when its the whole marriage scenario.... though you do see people keeping their own which I think can be a bit ridiculous but again to each their own

    I remember trying to say both datura and molona's name I dont think my dodgy accent did it justice both very nice names

    It sounded just fine the way you said it Hazel Sometimes, when a name is said by a person of another language it can sound very charming, as it sounded when you did

    yeah I know what you mean its always great to hear how someone else says your name even if you never liked your name its the quirky way people say it that makes it a bit more tolerable
