Jonathan   2-10-2012
Whenever I'm introduced to someone new, they always ask me if I prefer to be called Jonathan or Jon. I tell them to use which ever one they like.
I've come to notice that my most intimate friends begin calling me by Jonathan after having called me Jon for an amount of time. It's also one of those names that, when pronounced, exposes the inflections in the speakers voice - meaning it's easy to detect subliminal attitudes if someone's talking to me and repeats my name.

religious parents gave me the name because it means: gift from god, and I was prayed for before conception.

John is NOT a diminutive form of Jonathan, nor is Jon. Jon is not a real name. That drives me crazy!
