They call me 'A'

Friday, March 12, 2010

For reasons that are beyond me, people at work are wont to call me Miss A or just plain A instead of the three-syllabled name my parents gave me. With some part of me rebelling against the reduction of my name to just a single letter, I haven’t grown accustomed to being called A. A represents a one-dimensional person: that person who gets her work done with a maniacal sense of order. Beyond that my colleagues know nothing about me and would not want to know more, anyway. I’d rather be called Jill as my oldest and closest friends do. Jill, a name from childhood, is who I am to those who know me the best.

And worse yet, hearing my full name has now become a rarity. I think I am the only person left who calls me Angeli. Why can't others do so, too?

Angeli said...

hi jac. it's fine, really. :) it just feels like i'm losing my real name. hahaha

i can't even remember how 'Miss A' started, but it stuck so i went along with it. :)

i like your name Angeli. i think i've always called you Angeli, even in college, until i started seeing comments here calling you Jill and Angie.

Angeli, your is a really unusual and nice name.

I would object too if I had a name that beautiful being denigrated to a single letter. People being cool around you may be perceived of course as complimentary of you, by themselves, but a little application of forethought would clear that up for them.

We have versions of it here but Angie is not as nice sounding. Angel is good though. Yours is almost like the english word angelic, a derivative of angel.

lol, sounds like mng. A of csc ah, :-)... in the study or science of numbers, A stands for 1, and 1 is number one! maybe that's how your colleagues see you! though my name also begins with letter A, no one has called me that yet, i think it does not vibes me, hihi..
