The Name For
My name means Forest, Mountain and Happy
It's sort of bluish
like a blueberry
And sort of red
like a cherry
I guess a purple grape would complete it

in the night
But bright and happy
in the morning
My name is sour now

Yellow Original Sleepy Loser Ratty****
My last name does describe me
Isosceles Pleasant Loving****
I stand tall
Like a Mountain
Don't wear it out

My Name To Me
[NAMe] is my everlasting name
that will stick with me for the rest of my life
It is a blue name
like the sky
it does not fade
It is like the sound
of the howling wind
when I am sad
or a yelping dog
when I am glad
Like the morning sun
my name is fresh,
The number 12
is my name
it is an outgoing
yet lucky number
My name is made out of water
It smells like animals
not always a pleasant smell
but something I like
my name looks like me
for it is
it is a part of me.
[FIRST NAME MIDDLE NAME LAST NAME]
[FIRST NAME] means war, fighting, and killing.
[FIRST NAME] may mean all these horrid entertainments of man
but I am exactly the opposite
peace-loving and happy.
The very image of changing my name is a torment
to my very soul.
My name and I are infinity
we live on forever.
Pronouncing my name is like ringing a beautifully delicate bell.
Soon that bell will be rung all over in the name of the
best soccer player in existence.
This name is my treasure
rarer than the rarest diamond or any pirates booty.
It sparkles like the most divine ruby.
I am its master and it is mine.
My name means a lot to me
It's something I write on paper
Something that I type on the computer
I'm called by that name and that name alone
It's something that I will always remember
Some people say my name
[Misspelled NAME 2]
[Misspelled NAME 3]
[Misspelled NAME 4]
And even [NICKNAME]
But it will always remain [NAME]
