About This Quiz

What's in a name? Does it represent your personality or does your personality morph into your name? Names are a designation we are given at birth, but it's not set in stone that you must rock that name forever. While most people stick with the name they were given by their parents, some decide to opt for a pseudonym or pen name or simply to go by a schoolyard nickname like Chip, Chunk or Duckie.  

There can be great disdain for one's name, especially when a family name keeps making the ranks down through generations where upon reaching the teenage years, a person realizes they hate their name. Going by a middle name to avoid using the perceived "ugly" first name is a tactic often employed around the teenage years that can be effective but often regretful to the point of changing back to the first name sometime after college. 

The '80s were not known for a plethora of unique names. If we look at the top 25 baby names for boys and girls given in the '80s, we see a theme of biblical name representation. Family names were a popular choice in the '80s, as was the trend of naming a child after a feature in nature like River or Aspen. Whether you think your name is boring, original or antiquated, sign onto this quiz, and we'll try to guess what your '80s name is!
