"I have the name Journey. I was always teased about it and I used to want to change it. Now I love and embrace the fact that it's unique. My mother wanted to name me this bc she had 3 sons before having me and said it was a "Journey" to get me. My name reminds me of how much my mother loved me. She sadly passed when I was 6. I'm so happy to have such a great name. My father liked it bc of the band lmao! I'm 13 now and I will always love my name. It goes very well with my middle name, "Ann", "Marie". If you have this name learn to love it bc it makes you different and sets you apart. It's only bad if you make it." Jun. 18, 2020:
