    Wink Things to think about when naming your child something strange

    I found this funny but true list of the struggles people face when they have a strange name on Buzz Feed. It is something to think about: The 21 Struggles Of Having An Impossible Name

    Yep all of those are true, but I still love my, what was unique when I was young, name.

    I think "weird" is a matter of opinion, honestly.

    I was gifted with a "unique" name and which I hadn't had it when I was a kid. However, it has worked as an Icebreaker all growing up and into adulthood when I explain where my parents came up with YAVANNA, especially considering I was born in a time when everyone was named Jennifer, Heather, Michelle, Stephanie or Christina.

    I had this problem growing up with the name Eleni. It took my best friend 13 years to learn how to spell my name right. Most of the time, I don't even correct people unless they ask; my friends do. I hated the fact that no one could spell or pronounce my name. But on the plus side, I never got confused with anyone and I was never Eleni P growing up. At least I was an individual. By now, I like that not many people have my name. But when I have kids, I will probably pick a not popular name that people recognize, because I wouldn't want them to be constantly telling people how to pronounce their name. I agree with the poster above, it was an ice breaker for me, explaining what it meant.
