I think Luna Starshine sounds pretty :3 But I can understand wanting a name change though, I got made fun of for my last name, and I'm waiting to change it once I get married (which is expected to be once I graduate college). My first name is interesting though, it's a fairly uncommon name, but I have never heard of anyone who has it spelled like I have it. I liked my first name because it was unusual, even if everyone spelled or pronounced it wrong XD Kinda interesting, my mom kinda came off as somewhat hippie-ish, and I developed most of her interests, but it was still at a level where our family was mostly normal. My dad isn't exactly a hippie by any sort of the word XD
Yay hippie parents :/ You got saddled with a worse moniker than I did though ...sounds like a my little pony character... sorry :/ Mine attempted to name me after the song, Jessamine girl.. ('butterfly child, so free and so wild' etc, etc -_-) but, I wound up as 'Jasmin' ...which gets mispelt as Jasmine, and pronounced as JaZmin or Yasmin way more often than being pronounced right
Still, you're not alone in the 'WHY CALL YOUR KID THAT?' category- my best friend wound up with a middle name that sounds like a mispronounced girls name, and was raised under a last name (not his real name! ...his step father's) that no one can figure out how to pronounce, so they sound it out... then it sounds like a an anti-gay slur, which is unfortunate as he is gay :/
My parents are hippies. I kinda qualify, I'm not quite fluffy enough, though. I'm a bad hippie.
My parents were more on the relaxed side, they pretty much let us do whatever. Their two main rules were no sex without protection and drug experimentation needs to be done in the house or somewhere else safe (no random parties).
And we got a computer with an internet connection as soon as you could, back in the 90s.
Nice. My parents are weird. They're aeither really high when you meet them or really drunk. We have rules though :
1. Mom believes in the natural state so in the house you must be buck naked but no fucking with siblings 2. Don't eat meat ever. 3. Until you're old enough will you be allowed to get the good weed. 4. Don't have sex in the parking lot 5. Don't set the school bathroom on fire.
I think maybe my parents both growing up poor, my mom on a farm, my dad with 1st gen immigrants from Europe, raising their own food, gave them a different attitude.
My mom connects very easily with animals, she used to raise and kill chickens and stuff when she was younger but now she's come to know enough of them as individuals that it bothers her. Not the idea of them being killed and eaten, just the doing it herself.
My dad used to hunt for most of our meat, but he's not so into it anymore. Of course he lets people hunt our land in trade for meat, and butchering a deer is a huge pain, so I think it's really more of a convenience thing. If it came down to needing to hunt, I'm sure he'd be able to do it without feeling all that bad.
Me, I love animals a ton, I have great respect for living things. But I have no problem whatsoever killing, dressing, and eating an animal I have raised.
There are some things I do that are super soft, though. I try not to use kill traps in my house (it's old, we have mice and stuff) and I always check the mousies belly before I take it away, if she looks like she's nursing I let her go in the house again. I can't stand the thought of babies starving.
That's interesting. My parents well, I don't even know if they were ever sane. You have my mom who will stop her car in the middle of the road if she sees any animal what so ever. It's a good way to die and she makes me so nervous when she does that. The other day she found a dead squirrel and brought it home crying over the loss of a life. I don't understand. I see squirrel I think oh goody food that's not green! (Let's cook it mom!).
My mother is one of those strict animal savers. She's annoying but I love her.
My father is more of a care free "chillax" kind of person. He is more lenient than my mom. He still gets on to us if we say, "KILL THE FOX!" he will yell at us but he won't bother saving a fox from death if its a natural death.
His brother is redneck from down south. He's not a hippie. He's a lot like the people in Duck Dynasty! Hairy, southern accent and squirrels. I only see him every now and then.
My dad's father is one of those cool hippies. I love him so much. However my mom's mom is a witch...(she's my mom's real mom but we still stay in touch with her). My grandma wants me to join her witch ways and says that i have the potential.
My beliefs are still forming. I respect the circle of life and I don't feel the impulse to alternate it or interfere. An animal is born, it lives and it dies. That's that. I believe animals have souls and feelings and I like to think of them like me even if they're not. But when it comes down to it if someone was dying and needed to eat me why not? I'd feel honored for keeping someone else alive.
sure how much is an eighth? Btw, you're name's not that bad, it's distinctive for sure. But at least they didn't name you Sephiroth like this one lady named her kid. It could be worse. They sound in their own strange way like they love you a real bunch but hey, I guess being naked in the house would be awkward. Especially if i ordered a pizza. I went to school with a dude named Harry Dick.
Aw man its free what is yours is mine and mine is yours that's the hippie way! (I swear that how I happened my mom said "what is mine is yours" and my dad said, "Dude can i have your pussy?" -_- I was an accident of course. )
True very true. I was almost named Diana Moonshine! Moonshine. -_- Then my mom said, "Let's name her Mary J. Moonshine." O.O thank god my grandma nagged!
We order the worst pizza and I'm always the one who answers the door! But imagine this my brothers wrestle...naked!
Luna Starshine sounds romantic! It's absolutely lovely. Really As for your religious orientation, have you thought about Wicca? I've been a wiccan for quite a while already, and I'm much pleased with it.
If it helps somehow... I think Luna is a great name, I just love it!!! It's original and misterious.
At least you don't have ass names like some people in my country... Imagine some weirdo that is named "Masiosare Perez Lopez"... just because they thought that "mas si osare un extraño enemigo..." is a goddamed name... At least you got a real name
People mak fun of names because of envy (in case you are on this), your name is original and not many can have it, so they instead annoy people instead of quietly admiring...
