Mandy. Who on earth names their kid Mandy? Barry Manilow fans, that's who.  I was never a huge fan of my name growing up; all my friends were Sarahs and Jennifers; I was the only Mandy and no, Amanda is not the same as Mandy. In fact, at one point I wanted to change my name to Amanda because every time I would tell someone what my name was they would ask, "Oh, is that short for Amanda?" Nope, it's the name on my birth certificate.

But let's say you want to change your name, but not legally because why go through the hassle, but you know for fun (and I'm not talking about telling that creep at the bar that your name is Anastasia Beaverhousen)? There's actually a national "holiday" dedicated to changing your name, Name Yourself Day.

How to celebrate is obvious- just change your name to whatever you want for the entire day.

With that said, I thought it would be fun to see ask the people of Rockford to give it a different name; we already have a few that you're familiar with like "The Screw City" and "The Forest City", but what else would you call Rockford? Here are the results.

  1. Rock and Roll-Ford
  2. Rockompton
  3. Rockbottom
  4. Rock Vegas
  5. Rock Town
  6. RockTurd
  7. Momentum City
  8. The Rock
  9. Cheap Trick Town
  10. Rockfordland
  11. Stateline Township
  12. Pee Stop City
  13. Midway Pointe
  14. Rockganistan
What would you call Rockford on "Name Yourself Day?"
