what's in a name

Hello, my name is Dakota.

I hated my name when I was younger. I thought it was ugly and wanted to change it. I think I actually cried about it. My name didn't have any good nicknames, and I didn't know anyone else with my name. Luckily, I've come a long way since then and now I love my name. I love my name because I'm the only one with it. Of course I'm not the only Dakota in the entire world, but I never have to worry about there being another Dakota in school.

For a name that doesn't have any nicknames, I've certainly collected quite a few. And I love them! I've been called everything from D-codes, DW, Ota, to Daks and more. I was always jealous of those kids in elementary school with nicknames and now I have them. It just took a little longer for their creation. I love my name, and I love the many nicknames that have come from it over the years!
