One Third Of Irish Not Using Birth Name

The majority of people surveyed like their name.

One third of Irish people prefer to use a name that's different to the one on their birth cert.

New research from Leonardo Hotels shows the most common alternative was to use a shortened version of their name, followed by a nickname, their middle name, or something they just like better. 

One in twelve say their parents called them something different to what's on their birth cert. 

94% of Irish people surveyed like their name, compared to one in three in the UK who say they hated their name.
