1. Is the name you have now the same name that's on your birth certificate? If not, what's changed?
The first name and last name on my birth certificate are now my two middle names. I have added a new first name and last name, and removed my original middle name.

2. If you could change your name (first, middle and/or last), what would it be?
I did change it.

3. Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?)
I was named after my mother's first name and my father's mother's maiden name, and I had my father's surname.

4. Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why?
Not really. I am dubious about the current yuppie trend of saddling children's names with lots of "eigh"s and "y"s.

5. Is the analysis of your name at accurate? How or how isn't it?
When I identified myself as male, it gave me this:
The name Stef gives you a strongly independent (yes) and highly creative (maybe) nature, with drive and ambition to have experiences and accomplish things out of the ordinary.(drive and ambition don't particularly describe me, but I do have experiences and accomplish things out of the ordinary, for some values of ordinary) You can work intently at whatever is new and holds your interest at the moment, but your interest wanes quickly when drudgery and monotony set in. (Yes, but that's true for most people.) Obstacles to your progress or restrictions on your freedom to act create a sense of frustration which may cause you to feel resentful and even rebellious. (Also true for most people. And I'm somewhat less likely to feel resentful and rebellious than some, I think; I tend to try to find ways around obstacles rather than beating my head against them.) You can then become intolerant of others, and caustic and belittling in your expression, thereby imposing stress on your personal relationships. (Not particularly descriptive of me except in extreme situations.) Although you have a clever, quick, capable mind, (Yes) your progress in life is restricted by instability in your affairs and misunderstandings with people. (Very no) Your impulsive nature can lead to actions which you later regret taking, or to accidents. (Very very no)
When I identified myself as female, it gave me the above, and added this:
When Relaxation is elusive, and depletion due to nervous tension can develop to the point where you become subject to moods of depression and morbid thoughts. (True, although it strikes me as applying to most people, and it also contradicts some of what's said above about becoming resentful and rebellious.)
