My Name is Envy

by - 7:10 PM

My name is Envy. E N V Y. Two syllables, it's simple as that. And still there are people who won't call me Envy,  but... Annie
L. Literally said: 'But Annie is such an amusing movie.'
Yeah, so?  What's that got to do with me? My name is Envy and nothing else.

In the left corner: Annie. In the right corner; your infamous blogger Envy. Can you spot the millions of differences?

From first grade till senior year, my friends have been calling me Annie, because 'it sounds so cute'.
Two completely different groups of friends who've never met eachother call me Annie.  Well, one used to (we got into a big fight in fifth grade) and the other one still does. Even at my athletics club people call me Annie.
I honestly hate being called Annie. I don't like the sound of it. So I ask people to stop calling me Annie. But in the end, the name always returns.
Even teachers won't call me by the name of Envy. My history teacher kept calling me Annie, until I said: 'Mr... It's Envy.'
'Okay Annie, but the attendence list says...'
'It says Envy, Mr.... Envy, as in the sin.'
The guy is still convinced my name is Annie. Because who would name their child after a sin? Who would want their daughter to share a name with a homunculus from Full Metal Alchemist?

And then, even if the teacher does read my name right, I tend to get into a situation like the one in 8th grade, when my teacher for Ancient Greek asked my class: 'Envy, weird name. Is Envy supposed to be a dude?'
I raised my hand and said: 'I'm pretty sure I'm a girl...'
Having a one of a kind name isn't all fun and games; it's mostly akward and annoying.

  1. Take it that way. You parents named you Envy because they wanted people to envy you. Like you are going to be some awesome person and like always, people are gonna envy that. Bdw, I like your name. :)

  2. I've always loved everything unique, and as a result, I think your name is awesome!

    I can sort of relate because I have always had issues with my name. For some reason, they always seem to just stick a T in there. It's not quite the same thing but it can get a big annoying. Worst is, even some of my best friends still spell my name wrong!

    Anyway, hope you won't let it bother you much longer! You're going to college where you can set new trends for yourself so that's something to look forward to!

    1. It's so frustrating to have people mess up your name! Our parents gave us our names for a reason, so people should use them and not stick a T in it or change it alltogether.

      I'm so looking forward to college. And having a weird name could be a great way to break the ice next year :P
