Get a Different Name Day

Get a Different Name Day can be a day that completely changed the old life. For some, it will be another reason for fun, while others will take the celebration seriously and change their name to a new one. Traditionally, an unofficial celebration is celebrated on February 13.


It has long been believed that the name determines the character of a person. Each has its own characteristic and origin. At the time of birth, parents decide how to name the child. Years later, he may have a desire to change his name. Such a procedure is legal only after reaching the age of majority. After receiving the document, any citizen has the right to do so. Not wanting to complicate the process, it is enough to take a pseudonym, as world stars usually do.

There is an opinion that the name change is associated with the onset of a turning point in life. The most striking example can be called a wedding. After marriage, girls change their surname or take a double one. In many cases, psychologists advise to think about changing the name of those who independently build their personality. Such experiences are very useful for patients who are unable to accept the true self.

How to celebrate

Just for a day, you should stop being someone the world has known for a long time, and try to try on a different image. You can arrange a loud party in honor of the stars who took a pseudonym.
