When : Always February 13th
Get a Different Name Day is is for those who are not fond of the name given to them. At birth, we are given a first name, a middle name and a last name. It wasn't our choosing. Rather, our parents bestowed it upon us. If you like your name, good for you.
If not, then today is for you. Take advantage of today to change your name.
.Ps If you change your name, don't forget to update your stationary. And, you will need to notify family and friends about your new name.
