What Raymond`s say about their name
  1. The best thing about the name Raymond:
    it's not a common name. The meaning of this name is very cool, the 'wise protector' and I don't know why it quite influenced my character as a person. I love to care and help people, fix something or find solutions of some troubles around.
    The worst thing about the name:
    in my childhood some of my friends sometimes refer my name to a japanesse cartoon character, Doraemon. And I'm not really happy with that, altough Doraemon is a cat robot from the future, who has a magical pocket on his belly, which filled with many futuristic, fantasy tools to help his friend.. But it doesn't mean I don't love to be helpfull person, the matter is the way from how my friend make fun from my name.. hahaha
    If my name wasn`t Raymond....:
    It's fine, at least it still have a good meaning. Because I believe, a name is the parents prayer for our live..
    Extra information:
    Being named as Raymond, it's such a unique experience. Since I tried to understand the meaning behind this name, always made me try to be a wise, careful, and be a more understanding person for any situations. I'm not really an outgoing person, and quite hard to start a new friendship, but I never easy to give up, and always try altough it's hard.
