Lena Mackenzie

Most people on here know me only by my nickname Jay.
I’ve gone by this for 14 years, but over time, with more and more lads being nicknamed/called Jay too – I’m done!

Jay KellySo I’ve gone to the end of my birth name, instead of the beginning.

I was christened Jolene, and I’ve never liked it (much to my mum’s sadness, as she chose it, of course – I get that) but I don’t feel like I fit it, don’t gel with it, so I lived with Jay, but I don’t feel it anymore.
So, I’ve gone with Lena.
For a couple of reasons.
Lena is the most appropriate nickname for the end syllable of my birth name. And my great grandmother was called Lena.

And to make up for legally changing the birth name my mother chose, I’m taking her maiden name of Mackenzie.

I’ve done my change by deed poll, and now the paperwork trail begins!
I’ve secured & .com, so at least I can have my name as my web domain still!

Still me though!

I don’t expect Lena to sink in right away for everyone, but we’ll get there before we know it!

Yours warmly,

Lena Mackenzie 😉
