Well, uncommon does not necessarily mean ugly. And, Violet is a flower and it's a color, beautiful in any case.
How could you not know your legal name? Haven't you ever seen your ID, or something?
I always thought my name was just Shannon and my middle name was Louise, but I found out (oddly enough, from a teacher calling out the roll in school a few years ago) that my full first name is Shannon-Louise and, according to my birth cert., I don't have a middle name
Was thinking the same thing...teachers do roll call the first day of school and in my experience the roll always had the students' legal first names. If students have nicknames or whatever, they usually have to let the teacher know. I find it odd that OP never heard their real name at all in this context.
My son goes by a different name than his legal one. When I fill out the papers, I put his legal name, but his preferred name. Teachers always call out the preferred name and that is all the school knows him as. So, it is possible for the teacher not to call out the legal name.
Unless the parents stated on the enrollment paperwork that the child goes by a different name. my sons name is Alexis but because most people here in the united states associates Alexis with girls he goes by Alex. so on the first day of school they called out Alex instead of Alexis.
My friends and I spent a good 20 minutes playing a colour association game. 'Green' was Jade 'Blue' was skye or Cyan 'Yellow' was daisy 'Orange' was autumn, etc. Lots of fun, thanks!! :)
