Tip #01: Keep it short and sweet.
You might be tempted to think that the longer your name is, the stronger it will make you seem, but this just isn’t true! Short names are simply easier to pronounce and remember than long ones. A shorter name also takes up less space on a resume or title page because there’s no need for all those extra letters (that nobody can read). So go ahead—keep them simple by keeping ’em short!
Tip #02: Make people laugh with phonetics jokes.
Some words have pronunciation that only sounds right when using initials as opposed to spelling out each individual letter-sound combination word after word. This includes many of our favorite Ks like Kristin, Kathleen, Kayla and Katelyn. Strong names that also make people laugh are the best of both worlds!
Tip #03: Keep your favorite initials in mind when you plan to take on a new name.
If this is becoming an issue with choosing a last name for yourself or someone else—then consider keeping their initials as part of the first or middle initial instead (for example Katie could be Katherine H., Kathryn L., Kristina M.). It’s always good to have backup plans just in case!
Tip #04: Know what it means if your last name starts with “K”. Even though there are many ways we start our names now-a-days, knowing what having one starting with K means is important.
Knowing what it means to have a name that starts with K can be helpful when thinking about which last names are the best fit for your needs (considering if you want one starting with an A, B, C or D).

Tip #05: Try looking at different variations of English spelling and pronunciation. When we think about our favorite celebrities who start their names with K – like Kate Middleton or Katy Perry- there’s often more than one way to spell them in both languages! We’re not just talking about pronunciation, either.
Tip #04: Consider a last name that starts with an A or B instead of K because this will give you the opportunity to find out what it’s like to be someone else for a little while. It can also help make your life easier when dealing with important decisions!
Tip #03: You’ll feel better knowing where you come from and how much history is behind your family name as well as all the places in which it could have originated- whether or not there are any people currently living who share it today.
A common misconception most people hold is that if they change their last name then nobody would know anything about them anymore; but by doing so, they’re actually opening up the opportunity for the world to get to know them better.
Tip #02: When picking a first name, don’t be afraid of using your middle or last names as they can make you easier to locate when meeting new people. Your full name will also tell others about who you are and why you’re here!
Tip #01: Avoid changing your first and last names at once because it might cause some confusion with those trying to find out more information about you. Instead, change one letter at a time so that there’s no sudden shift in how someone would search for anything related to your identity on an online database. For example, if our blog post author wanted their first and last name changed from Tiffany Tizzelle-McGee to Tiffany Tizzelle, they would need to change the letter “Z” in their last name into an “I” and then continue changing letters one at a time.
Tip #03: If you’re not sure what your first or last name should be, it’s usually safe just using variations of your middle name as long as it has some significance that relates back to who you are. For example, if our blog post author wanted their full name changed from Tiffany Mckee-Tiffany McGee (this is often done by people named after family members), they could use either variation without any fear because it still tells others about them!
Tip #04: Try thinking outside the box when naming yourself so that someone else can’t just use your name as their own. For example, if you’re named after someone who’s famous in some way or another, change the spelling of your last name (like when one goes from Tiffany Tizzelle-McGee to Tiffany Tizzelle). Doing so will ensure that noone else with a similar sounding first and last names comes around!
Tip #05: If you want a cool new nickname but don’t know what it should be, do an onomastnymy search online for ideas. You might find something perfect like “Tif,” which is short yet still sets off alliteration with its nicknames “Tiff” and “Tifa”! Or try looking up words related to personal interests, like “Kookie” for someone who loves cookies.
Tip #06: If you want your name to sound more original and less generic, try thinking outside of the box by using a unique spelling or adding an unusual middle initial. For example, instead of naming yourself after one of your parents with the same first letter (like if you’re named Katherine Anna), just call yourself something new like Kaitlyn Anne! You can also add an extra letter to make it different from other names that may be spelled similarly in another language.
Tip #07: Make sure your last name is pronounceable so people can say it without struggling too much. Since everyone’s first reaction when they hear a difficult word might be avoidance rather than
Tip # __: Always give 100% effort. You may not be the smartest, but you’re probably pretty creative and hard-working. If those two qualities are combined with confidence, they’ll get you where you want to go!
Tip # __: Get comfy in bed by getting a good night’s sleep. The brain is an amazing thing–it needs rest so it can process information and come up with solutions for problems that have been bothering us all day long. So when we deprive ourselves of quality shut eye at night or during our morning coffee break, we diminish our ability to think about what really matters most on any given day–whether it’s life goals, relationship struggles or career challenges. Instead of feeling more motivated after a good night’s sleep, we’re often more tired and less able to think creatively.
Tip # __: Practice self-compassion by being kinder with yourself. It can be really difficult, especially when it feels like you don’t have enough time in the day or that other people are succeeding at life while you feel stuck on pause– but take some time for compassion every single day! Self-care is not selfish; it’s essential to mental health and happiness throughout our lives. So let go of self criticism today, smile at your reflection in the mirror before heading out into the world tomorrow morning and thank yourself for everything you do right now!
Tip # __: Keep learning new things so that no one will be able to match you. Tip # __: Make a list of your strengths and prioritize what matters most to YOU. If writing doesn’t matter, don’t do it! Move on and find something that does work for you because we all have different strengths– being an expert in one thing is not the same as being good at everything so take some time today to think about where you’re really strong. What are __? Tip # __: Break up tasks into manageable pieces with breaks between them by using timers or alarms. Maybe break out jobs over several days instead of trying to get everything done right this second or give yourself shorter amounts of time instead of longer ones (like 30 minutes). Breaking things down makes them much
