My first name is Ronald, and I absolutely hate it. I’m the third, and my parents chose it because they couldn’t agree to anything else. Which I’m also thankful for, because my mother had some pretty shit ideas. They expected that the whole “Ronald McDonald” thing would be over, but that was not entirely correct. That’s pretty much why I’ve just gone by RJ my entire life, and I’ve actually considered changing my name to just RJ, because I’m tired of being referred to as Ronald. The first day of class always sucks because during attendance when they call “Ronald”, I have to say “well yes, but never call me that.” It’s pretty safe to say that there won’t be a Ronald Davis IV for that reason in itself. I’m not sure if it’s an easy, or hard process to change your name and I’m not really sure it’s worth the effort at this stage in my life, when I have much more important and relevant things to worry about instead of my name.
