analyze this

Filed under: maybe it's me, perfect strangers — notsojenny @ 10:14 am

yesterday i took this quiz

i put in my full name and this is what i got…

The name notsojenny reflects drive, a pioneering spirit, leadership, independence and originality. The energy behind this name is strong and forceful and promotes an unconventional, innovative, and decisive approach. Highly focused and self-reliant, the name notsojenny carries with it an unmistakable “can do” attitude. It reflects confidence, energy, strength and perseverance. There is a definite sense of danger and risk-taking as well.

The name notsojenny does not inspire patience and sensitivity, and does not promote cooperation or a diplomatic approach to problem solving. Think of this name as a masculine, aggressive, creative force.

notsojenny’s most positive characteristics: Strength, originality, courage, imagination, creativity, confidence. Good for competitive, high-risk ventures.

notsojenny’s most negative characteristics: Pride, intolerance, excessive aggressiveness. Not good for people-oriented ventures or healing, counseling and retail businesses.

 so yah, it’s pretty dead on.  i even did my sister’s full name and it sounded exactly like her to me.  i’ve always been a dork for these things.  much like magda and her atrological love matchingi’m big on being pigeon holed.  i’ve always been a meyers-briggs dork.  if you have this tendency too, i suggest checking it out.  it’s at least 5 minutes of entertainment. 

so when i was playing with this analyzer i also ran my future baby names.  because i’m just like that.   i also look up my future baby names every few months on the SS administration’s website.  i like to make sure they’re not becoming too popular.  my girl L also keeps me up to speed since she teaches 1st grade and she’s got a good eye on what names are around more.  luckily my 2 favorite girl names* are pretty far down the list but my boy’s name is steadily rising.  it makes me sad.  i know i’m not the only girl out there who’s obsessive about this baby naming crap.  i also have a list of future dog names.  and since i really want a frenchie most of them are tres francais.  feel free to call me sad names, i do.

*my NEW 2 favorite girl names (which i will not give out yet).  i used to love Natalie but it’s steadily rising in popularity and Hanna (means flower in japanese) was just used by our friends to name their baby except they have no clue about the jap connection (i thought it would be nice to work in M’s heritage but oh well, i tried)

when i went back and actually put in “notsojenny” i got this… (and i think it’s pretty damn accurate)

Notsojenny’s most positive characteristics: Intelligence, depth, spirituality. Always in search of knowledge.

Notsojenny’s most negative characteristics: Arrogant, self-centered, eccentric, introvert.

  1. So obviously I’ve bookmarked this site now. My boss thanks you.

    My name got exactly the same results as yours. Exactly! Masculine? Aggressive? Not patient or sensitive? Oh well. Probably correct. I tried it with J’s last name, and it seemed much nicer. Hmmmph. I also tried a concocted bloggy name, and it was frighteningly perfect for the writing I do over there. It was all “self-expression and communication skills; draws creative and passionate people.” Crazy!

  3. I put my real name in? And it came up with something completely not like me at all? And then I put “Rad Fanny” in? And it was Spot. On. It sort of freaked me out.

    Have a great 4th, my dear!
