About This Quiz

Your personality and overall identity may be radiated through your behaviors and traits, but your name plays a major role in this as well. After all, your name is one of the first things you mention to people when you meet them. There are many short and long names in this world, and each one of them represents different types of meanings and origins, so let's explore some of these further.

You're probably familiar with common names, like Sophia, James, Isabella, Zachary, Emma and Olivia, but there are also unique and exotic names as well! Some examples include Cordelia, Casper, Kaiya, Ace, Juniper and Perla. While these names are mostly suited for a specific gender, you can also find unisex names, like Jordan, Reese, Avery and Payton. 

And don't forget about the origins of names, as some of these represent the elements of the world and fearless personality traits. An example of this would be the popular name Daniel, which literally translates to "God is my judge." This particular name, which has Hebrew origins, can also be shortened to Dan. And if you want a more feminine version of the name Daniel, you could even lengthen it to Danielle. 

So whether or not you like your given name, this personality quiz will determine what your real name should be!
