Psychic illness..

Hello doctor, I wanna change my name. I never felt comfortable with my name. I have no middle name. Just the first and the last name. I haven't felt any embarrassments with my last name. My concern is all about my first name. My first name is neutral name. Both men and women have this name. Since my kindergarten days, I felt shame with this name. People teased any bullied me because of my name. Many a time people including my teachers made fun out of me. So I have to change my name. I feel by changing my name, everything would be fine. You understand better how a person's not good kind of name affect him personally and emotionally when others(especially girls) make fun outta it. Now my question is whether should I put my step forward to change my name or should I visit a psychiatrist/psychologist regarding this chapter? Then will people like my name if I achieve something big and become an iconic image? Please help me Reg. this. Thank you

Hello There. I can understand your concern, regarding the change of the name, its your decision, we cannot say if should do it or not. you seem to have a problem of low self esteem. see, many people have funny names, many people make fun of others, you don't need to be intimidated by all such things. many people cope up with it. just stand up to the bullies and those teachers once and then all will be alright. consult a psychiatrist for counselling for your low self esteem problem. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain
