What's in a NAME...????

You all have come across the phrase "What's in a name..??" What does it mean to you..??

For me, my NAME means everything... It something so closely attached to me, so much a part of me that I don't even need to be conscious while saying my name.. And I am sure, it would be the same with everyone. We are all very possessive about our name. Even hearing someone calling out our name sounds so sweet at times, no matter how common the name may be and when we meet someone with the same name as ours, we immediately feel a sense of bonding with that person. We suddenly identify the same kind of problems with our names,the mistakes people make, the jokes played cracked and the most important...... the way they call you out.....

It dint matter to me if someone called me by a different name or rather say different versions of my name... I don't have a problem when people call me with different names but then I don't like people who are not so familiar to me, calling me with short names.. People call me Urvashi ( I really like to be called that), then some call me Urvi (Hmmm.."Urvashi" might be a bit long. So I'm fine with "Urvi" too.. Mostly everyone in family calls me that... ) Uru (it is I guess the shortest possible version of my name and some close friends call me that). Even some blogger friends initially adressed me as "Urvashi from URNER??!!" I was so happy at that time to have my name as part of my blogs name. Then there is another list of being known as so & so's Daughter, so & so's sister, and the customised names and pet names too...



But I have been christened the most in the last few days and that's at my office.Now here, most of the officers are senior and they always introduce themselves with their surnames. I find this really strange because I'm used to address people by their first name. So I even asked for their first names and I prefer calling them that ways. Now the problem started here. I addressed everyone by their first names whereas they are used to being addressed by their surnames and so they found the former strange, so much so that they dint even realise I'm calling out them... On the other hand, they don't remember my name and then they call me with an altogether different name and due to that, I'm christened almost daily at office. "Unnati", "Urmila", "Urmi", "Vrushali", "Aishwarya" are some of the names that I hear daily. Then there area few versions of my surnames too. Then there are customers who would want to know whom they are talking to and when they come back to branch, they just say some girl with name from "U " had called us and then it dawns upon everyone that it must be ME..

I find this all so funny that I wish everyone around remembers my name soon because I find it difficult to respond when someone can't remember my name & call me by the wrong name.... I really wonder how Shakespeare said that "What's in a name..???"
