“A name is a way to introduce yourself. A good name can make you feel confident and proud.” – Bill Gates Bill gates had an interesting take on old British names, “I like the idea of Charlotte because it’s not used in America,” he said at one point during the interview.

My first name was William Henry Gates, Jr. I had a friend named Bill and we were in the same class in school, so they called me “Trey” or sometimes just “Gates.” I would never have dreamed that my initials W H G would be used to form an international company name. But it happened! It has not always been easy for people with long surnames..and even longer given names like mine.
One of our friends from junior high school remembers how frustrating it could be when her teacher didn’t call on her because he couldn’t pronounce her last name. We all felt bad for her as she cried at recess after being teased about this issue day-after-day by other kids. I have seen Bill Gates’ last name misspelled in newspapers and on the internet. It’s not “Gates” like gates that keep people out of a city or off property, but it is spelled as “Gates.”
Some long names are easier to spell than others because they are more common. People with shorter surnames can be teased about their names too (especially if they sound funny). But some people get teased for having uncommon first and last names. I bet you didn’t know there was such thing as an old British name!

Bill Gates is of the opinion that old British names are so much more interesting than boring American ones. He also believes we need to teach our children about respect for others’ differences from an early age, and if we want them to live in peace without ridicule based on their name then this starts with teaching self-respect and respecting all other people at a young age.” – Lisa Adams, Content Creator at Intellipreneur.

What Bill Gates Hates About Life in America, and What He Loves.
Bill Gates on Old British Names – At first glance, you might think that when Bill Gates talks about old names he’s referring to people who are long dead. But not so! In this article, we’ll be talking about old names of cities found all over Britain–names like Plymouth or Worcester which have been around for centuries–not just for a few days or weeks..or even years. And while some of them may sound vaguely familiar to many Americans because they’re used as nicknames (like Liverpool), others could easily go by unnoticed on a map of England if they weren’t clearly labeled. So what are Bill Gates’ thoughts on old British names? Well, to get the answer you’ll need to read this article! But we can tell you that he seems positively smitten with them–almost as if they were his own children or grandchildren. “I love these old town names like Worcester and Plymouth,” said Mr. Gates in an interview for The Financial Times Magazine.. “These towns have been around a long time.” He also called them “beautiful.” We know it’s not usually thought of as beautiful when someone is talking about cities but one thing everyone agrees on is that those names sound nice together – just hearing their sounds evokes images of history (and maybe even romance). And while most people might
