Today, it's the first day of fall. It's also the day that over 20 people have made jokes about my name being "Autumn" like they're the funniest, most original people alive. It's not even 8 am. This is going to be a long day. FML

Hmmm, this is why parents should think when naming their kids. Yes, the name may sound pretty and be yoonique, but is it going to plague your sweet child for the rest of their life?

Is your middle name "Rain?" I've met so many Autumn Rains and their parents all think it is the most original name ever. I went to school with a girl named Winter.

I would think it would be interesting to see how many jokes they could come up with.
Don't let silly things like this keep you down op, have fun with them instead.


My cousins name is Winter Sky Best! I've never heard of another Winter before. Not sure why my Aunt chose this unique name for her though, when her sisters are Kelsey and Hailey.

Honestly, you have a beautiful name. Don't mind anyone who makes jokes about it.

I personally have always been self conscious about my name, and I have actually been planning on changing it as soon as I'm old enough. I haven't told my family about this. But I've always hated my name. I never liked it when someone says it, and I feel disappointed whenever I write it. Whenever I meet someone new and I say my own name out loud, I hate it.

You, OP, have a beautiful name! I have put years of thought into my own, and I know I want to change it. But even after planning and wanting it for years, I still don't know what to change it too.

I know the feeling. Everyone always wants to say my name the russian way. Or say it just a completely different way. It sucks, but at least you have a pretty name so. :)

People can only guess how to pronounce a name.

I feel the same when people name their son Teegan, but it's pronounced Tie-gun and everyone is supposed to just know.
Or they call their kid Madeiysin and people are supposed to know how it's pronounced.

People aren't psychic.

My mom's name is Autumn and it hasn't really ever occurred to me to make "jokes" about it because they are quite obviously just stupid and way to easy too make :p good luck today haha
