    The 4th Name. 8d

    My first name is Jolanda, which is quite common. Or well, I've met 3 girls called that. My 4th name, though, is Chir, and I have not met anyone with that name. That has made people call me Chir, "it's shorter and cuter". c:

    Kaemi. Ugh. It's a made up name. But it's MY name. It has a meaning to ME. It's not what I would have chosen. I have to spell it out all the time. Kaemi Rae? Really? Rae is my middle name. My parents got into the Rae thing quite early- I'm in my 30s! My children have...

    I Don't Hear It Very Often

    Although I have heard of other people with my name, (especially recently), it was pretty rare when I was a child. My mom named me Alana (Uh-LAIN-uh) after Alana Stewart (Rod's wife?) because she thought the name (and the woman) was pretty. As a kid I hated it because everyone but...

    Quite Pretty, But...

    Frequently mispronounced, despite being pronounced like it looks. I go by a nickname a lot, but I really do like having an unusual name. It sets me apart, and it's not like my name is obnoxious or weird, it really does sound nice.

    My name is Adela Xochitl Carmine,

    and I'm of pure Danish heritage so I have no reason to have a weird Aztec middle name. But hey, twitter/instagram handles are easy to come by when you've got a name like mine. I like my first name, and it carries the simple nickname Addy, so I don't have too much trouble. And...

    Only Where I Live

    My name isn't made up but it's foreign. I know it is more common in other parts of the world but where I live it is unique and unusual.

    Love My Name

    My name is Roo. Just Roo. It used to be very unique, until Hunger Games named the little girl Roo. Damn you, Hunger Games. Haha. But I like it. I think it sounds very approachable and casual.

    My Name

    My first name is Khara,(pronounced like Cara)  My mom found it in the Bible and decided to give me that name because it means "one who is pure" and "beautiful face" in Hebrew.  I've never met anyone with my name spelled the exact same way.  But lately I've been...
