Breonia

That name is bad enough (at least to me) and close enough to my own that I'm embarrassed by it's mere existence.

And I'm sure a bunch of famous, historically significant, people have been named that. Still looks like something I would have planned to name my own country when I was seven.

Well!  (huff puff)  When I was seven I was going to have my own country too.  And I was going to be the Queen!  And my country's name was going to be Babalonianna!  My name's longer than your name.  So there!!   ;D

Well, mine was gonna have magic ponies and flatcats, so there! ;P

Okay, here's a question, has anyone here looked up their name and been surprised by what people had to say? I know I was shocked to think people feel my name is just a made-up version of a male name used by the unimaginative (not making this up). And this is one that's, while not common, generally a more classical name.

I have seen that name.  My friend from high school, Dennis, told us once that his mom wanted to change his name when he was in grade school because someone pointed out to her that it was "sinned" spelled backwards.
