NATIONAL NAME YOURSELF DAY
National Name Yourself Day is observed each year on April 9. To celebrate, you are allowed to give yourself a new name for one day.
If you have ever wondered what it would be like to have a different name, this would be the day to find out. If you like your name and do not want to play along, you can try a nickname instead. The nickname might just stick with you.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Pick yourself a new name and use #NationalNameYourselfDay to post on social media.
