Please call me Cordelia

''Please call me Cordelia.'' It's actually quite a pretty name, isn't it? Well, let's get to the point.
I am going to change the name Rebecca into Rebekka. That is because that is my name when it was given to me when I was born.

It might seem a little change, like changing Ann into Anne, but I think it is more like trying to change Anne into Cordelia, when I decided Rebecca sounded more elegant then Rebekka.

I don't know. I hope this is not confusing. I must admit I sound confusing to myself.

I am a Confunsing Person. Always have been, always will be.

... *akward silence when I read everything back and hope I don't sound weird* ...

So I will embrace the person I really am, and not the person I want to be.

It also felt a little like having a double life, one person here, an other person at blogger. Strange how a name can change things. Or, to be more accurate, how the spelling of a nam can change things.

But I am still the same weird me! With the rightfull spelling of my name.

I also would like to say that I am simply in love with the English language. Why isn't the Dutch language so beautiful?
Even a word like ''wisp'' is so much more glorious then the Dutch word (it's ''sliert''. Ew.)


... and so many more words that sound just better then in Dutch. Eventhough Dutch has its own set of pretty words, just not so much.

This is a Dutch word. :) It also means sweet, as in ''you are so sweet to me''.



  1. I really like the double k spelling of your name. It's cool and unique :-)

  2. I loved this post! You spoke so honestly about all of it. And I don't think Rebekka is weird or less elegant. It's a pretty name and that's all!

  3. Thank you all for these comments! You really make my day, you know :-) Oh, and glad you followed, Elanor! (I love how your name is spelled too)

  4. Rebekka, spelled with two k's, is a very lovely name. It's very elegant.

  5. Know this is an old post but I love the way you spell your name! To me Dutch is a beautiful language. love your blog!
