    It's actually very similar to a common name.

    The only difference is one letter. It's frustrating because when I meet new people most of them mispronounce it and call me by the common name despite the difference in spelling. The difference in spelling does change how the name is pronounced. Some stubborn people have even...

    I'm 21 and my name is Beatrice.

    Usually when people hear my name before they meet me they're expecting to meet a woman in her 60s or 70s. So close friends and my family call me Bebe. I wish I could go by it all the time, I hate my name.

    Having a rare first name is better

    than having an unpronounceable unique first name that your mother, who failed grade school English, made up for you when you were born. How's this? Zairea (kinda sounds like diarhea to me). Or perhaps, Shi'thead would do? These are real names that some poor child has been...
