My name is...


Normally when I introduce myself to someone they usually say, "I'm sorry, what was your name?" or "Oh, that's a nice name -- how do you spell it?" or "That's so unusual, how do you say it again?" or, "Is that short for Angelina?"

I get weird reactions when people hear my name, and even weirder responses when they try and SAY my name, here are some comebacks of people trying to repeat it:

  • Angie
  • Onjee
  • Orange (Becky Orange...hahaha)
  • Onk
  • Aang
  • Agnes
  • Anges (yes, with an 's')
Last night I got a new one: HANS!

I understand my name is hard to say. So, let me give you a little background.

Do you remember your first reaction when you heard my name? Please share...it gives me such delight:)

i had never met an "ange" before you. at first i thought it was very unique and i knew there was some sort of significance or meaning. i like it because it is so unique and pretty.

thank you for the back ground! It always helps to to know the origin of the word, how it is used in a sentence, and any addition reference points for the word.

Thank you Ange!!!

ORANGE was the BEST!!! ha ha ha
I don't remember it being that weird, then again, I can't remember that far back either.

I once was called "Face." Yup, face. Who would have a name like that?! But my last name is very hard for people to pronounce and it only consists of 3 letters. Strange.

I don't remember ever not knowing you...I don't remember meeting you. Meaning..I always knew your name.
Becky orange was the best.

i thought it was short for something, and then i couldn't figure out why some people called you "ange-uh".
