  • "Es una l?stima que ten?a que averiguar c?mo la gente cruel puede ser as?. No puedo creer que se burlaban de el nombre de su beb?. Puede dejar su nombre legal por s? sola y simplemente la llaman Gina en el hogar, la escuela y en todas partes. Nadie tiene que saber su nombre real. Mi familia me llama Jeannie, que ni siquiera sabe mi nombre real era Regina hasta que empec? la escuela. Regina es mucho m?s real y elegante que Gina. Ella se lo agradecer? cuando sea mayor y lejos de los muchachos inmaduros en la escuela. ListenRead phonetically" Apr. 13, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love the name i gotta say. I used to live in Belgium (so i know french) and the way they said it was fine but then i moved to the UK and kids in my classes started making fun of me because the teacher would get it wrong and it sounds like "vagina". It is soooooo annoying!! I get embarrassed and starts blushing. I love my name though, it's awesome. Plus like people have said the cool nicknames, although the only i got here in the UK is Reggie :) Rere i did get but in Belgium and with an accent on each E :D" Mar. 23, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I hate being named Regina. Born in the 50's and going to a Catholic school, everyone knew it meant queen. The in grade school, the boys were merciless -- "Here, Queenie" as if calling a dog, "do you know what Regina spelled backwards is??" Absolutely hated it. Finally got to high school with a lot of Italian frineds, they started calling me Gina and it stuck. That's what I go by. I cringe when people that don't know me call me Regina.I was named after my mother. The ironic thing is that she grew up thinking her name was Virginia (off the boat parents). Some event required a birth certificate (she was born in the states, and that revealed the truth). To her 6 siblings, and everyone else in the family she was Aunt Ginny, V, Ginny, Gin. Even my father called her "V". Nobody EVER called her Regina. I was the one stuck with that." Dec. 15, 2016: Report as inappropriate

When I was 16 I finall (unofficialy) dropped the "RE" and asked everyone to call me Gina, which I love. Now aged 36 most people don't even realise Gina isn't my "real" name at all! I'm called Gina on my driving licence, credit card, everywhere, and my signature also says Gina, not Regina. Gina = thumbs up, Regina = okay as long as it's for someone else! :-)" Apr. 4, 2006: Report as inappropriate
