Get a Different Name Day

Let's be "frank." If you have ever wondered what it would be like to have a different name, today is your lucky day! February 13 is Get a Different Name Day, an annual "holiday" created by the fine folks at Wellcat.

Whether yours is old-fashioned, common, handed down, new age, downright wacky or hard-to-pronounce, just imagine what life would be like if you had the opportunity to select your very own name. Birth names are something we are stuck with our entire lives unless we go to extraordinary measures to change them.

If you happen to have a love-hate relationship with your name, what moniker would you choose? What name fits your personality? While we can be whoever we want to be, tomorrow we have to go back to our birth name.

February 13 is also National Tortellini Day and Kiss Day!
