    Grimm

    I was named Grimm, which is of Anglo-saxon origins and means fierce. For the most part I love my name because it's pretty unique, but every once in a while there's that one person who says thing such as (but not limmited to) "Hey why are you so grim today?" or " Oh, since your...

    My first name is Danie.

    It's french (my hometown is bilingual) so english speakers have a really hard time pronouncing it correctly. It always comes out sounding, like... Duh-NEE, which bothers me so I just ask them to pronounce it as Danny instead. It's supposed to be a guy's name, but I don't mind...

    Too Much.

    My name is Emmalyn Aphrodite (first and middle). Aphrodite (Afro-dye-tee) as in the goddess of love. I find it very weird and wish I had a more common name!

    A... Man?

    My name is Imane, though on my birth certificate it's misspelled as Aiman. It means faith in arabic, and it's a common name in arab countries. But seeing as I live in Canada, people think it's odd. I go to a french school, which makes it worse because if you say my name with a...

    "Okay, Kay?"

      Yep. My name is pretty much a joke to some people. To others, it's so rare that they just stare at me and ask, "No, seriously, what's your real name?" And I would always have to reply "That is my real name. It's my only name besides my middle name. And it's...

    Sunday. Just like the day of the week.

    My parents actually named me after a day of the week. In high school I went by Sunny but it didn't really fit in my twenties. So back to Sunday.

    I have a weird name. No one can pronounce it

    or spell it. But I still get lots of complements and at least it makes me a little more memorable.
