  • "My name is Taj. I pronounce it as you wolud say the word Tag or Tab but with a j. I do not pronounce it like Tahj or the Taj Mahal. Growing up i had a really mean pre-k teacher who called me Tahj and i was afraid to correct her. Since then and even through high school, everyone says my name as Tahj. Only my family says it correctly. Well in actuallity my name is really Taj-Domayn but everyone call me Taj for short. My mother added the Domayn because she felt it was too short. I have met a girl and her name was Taj-Felicia and i met a boy with the name Taj-Malick. I guess people with the name Taj add something else to it. I love my name mainly because people always remember my name out of everyone elses, mainly because its easy to say and that it is rare." Jul. 23, 2006: Report as inappropriate
