MIM: Why Do I Prefer To Be Called Jamie? (Androgyny)

Meow, today's post is going to be a little ramble one... I am going to talk to you about why I prefer to be called Jamie...

As you have probably noticed, my name is actually James via the blog link being TheJamesSowden and not Jamie Sowden... I hate James and decided that a while ago I would be preferred to be called Jamie...

If you're a friend of mine then I will expect you to call me Jamie...  It makes things easier within my mind and it makes me love you as a friend a little bit more as you are respecting my choices instead of going with what it actually is correct thing... If you're a family member then I don't mind being called James as they are my family and they were there when my mum named me James so it would be confusing for them if I asked to be called Jamie by them.... I also expect tutors to call me James as that is my name on forms etc and it is easier to do that... If you're a friend and you call me James then there is a good chance that I will have a go at you and I will expect you to understand why...

Another reason to why I prefer to be called Jamie is because Jamie is technically a unisex name as there is women called Jamie and men called Jamie therefore I feel a lot more comfortable with Jamie. I am androgynous which basically means I feel that I have female and male traits about me therefore I feel that Jamie suits me a lot more and if I'm feeling cute and slightly more feminine one day then being called Jamie isn't going to make me feel upset where as James would as I probably wouldn't feel as cute etc. I know it's a slightly weird thing to explain and grasp but I hope that you understand...

Don'r forget to comment with your opinion on this post and do you have a preferred name as well as your actual name? I hope that you have enjoyed this post and I shall see you tomorrow for another Meowing In May post!
