My mother told me when I was little that I would appreciate my name when I got older, BUT GUESS WHAT? I'm much older than I ever thought I would ever be I STILL HATE IT. Maybe when I retire to Greece where people have actually HEARD the name before, it will be all right, but for now: SUCK.
What makes it even worse is the way people leave it up to themselves to shorten it. I, like most Panagiotas, answer to Peggy, Peg, and Penny, but I really FUCKING HATE being called 'Iota. It's okay when it's pronounced correctly, but in New York, people say it YODA. When non-Greeks see it in writing they read it as "iota", as in "I don't care one iota for this name" and when Greek Americans from the Bronx say it, they say YODA, after which I have fifty gazillion people coming up and asking me, "Your name is Yoda? Were you named after Yoda?"
Yeah right, asshole, my mother named me after a wizzened up gnome from outer space. Go fuck yourself. :(
Uh huh, I am PMS-ing. Big time. So leave me alone. :P

I might as well do this now too: got a photobucket account and want to see if it actually WORKS before I upload any more pictures onto it.

Your name is so Yoda from now on. ^.~

Love the pic....Sofi didn't change at all, did she? Your cousin reminds me of Vik....but then again, don't all blonde Greek chicks look alike?

call me kooky, but i think PEGGY is a far weirder name than panagiota OR yoda.

of course when it comes to making a mockery of you, ALL of that pales in comparison with the mushroom hair of your childhood.

muahahahahahahahaha... yoda mushroomhead. hahahahahahahaha.

yeah, it's a little out there (my kids have unusual names too), but just think, they could have named you Heather. :-)

ps - GREAT photo, all the light leaks/discoloration are fab. i forgot how old photos from our youth can look...

Americans are really weird about names. If your name isn't Jennifer, they can't handle it. My name was supposed to be a red flag signifying which side of the fence my father was on politically (as if having *that* flag stuck up in our front window wasn't good enough) It wasn't an issue at all back home aside from the odd youre-obviously-a-republican remark, but when I came over here people literally had never seen anything like it before. I'm sure Rosie will back me up on this one, but no matter how whacked your name is, you should at least thank god it hasn't got any accents on it.

I like your name, btw, and I also like the pic, *and* your old mushroom hair, lol. If only my hair was ever that thick!
