Mine is Emily Eileen. I was almost an Amy or an Evelyn, but when my mom saw me, she thought I looked like an Emily, so an Emily I became. There was usually another Emily in the same grade as I was in as I grew up. I always liked Emily, but I went through a phase where I wanted something more exotic (Aladdin's Jasmine comes to mind).
My middle name is an old family name (going back three generations) and I love it because it's fairly uncommon, and has a beautiful meaning. My full name means "Industrious Light Bearer" and I think that's a lovely wish for a child.
No Lynn or Ann or Marie for me! My daughter will also have Eileen as a middle name (along with another, just for her) to honor my grandmother and mother.

My name is Genevieve. Actually, my real name is Eva, but I never liked it. I hated how short it was, even though now I like short names. I didn't think I looked like an Eva either. At camp I would always switch nametags with my best friend Gabby. When I was in 3rd grade, I started going by Genevieve because I thought Eva was too short.
I'm actually lucky to be named Eva. I could've been Puna or Yesenia, two names I strongly dislike.My parents have very different tastes in names than I do. If I was a boy I would've been named Wesley Eugene. :P
I'm not going to say my middle name, it's very uncommon.
So I don't intend to ever change my name, but I don't think I'll change my mind about Eva anytime soon.

My first and middle names are Hayley Angharad.
I really like my name,particularly Angharad in the middle. I'm Welsh and like that I have a bit of my heritage in my name too.
Hayley doesn't get a lot of love on here,particularly not the spelling,even though it's the oringal one. But I put that down to how much more popular a name it is in the USA than in the UK. It's fairly unusal in the UK.

My name is Olivia Cathryn. I like my name and I always have! My mother named me Olivia because it wasn't popular at all when I was born. Now, she claims she "set a trend" because Olivia is in the top 10 most popular names. I wish I had a more exotic middle name, but I still like it because it's spelled differently. The "Cath" is from my mom's mom Catherine and the "ryn" is from my aunt Kathryn. My brother is the one who has a truly unique name that I love: Theo. It's just Theo; not Theodore or anything else. I actually named my brother because when my mother was pregnant I said there was a teddy bear in her stomach. So, from Teddy came Theo. But I do love my name!! (When I have children, I want to name her something 100% unique!!!)

My name is Alix Louise. Alix because my mom loves Russian history and Louise was both grandmothers middle names. I like the flow of it with my maiden name it sounds very French. I have had lots of problems with the spelling and pronouncing it, but I have never met another Alix. I got the different name in the family my sister is Anna, one of many born in 1993 along with Hannah's.

Mine is Catherine Elizabeth. I never used to like Catherine that much when I was younger and always went by Kate or Katie because I thought Catherine was too severe. I love it now though, it's feminine but not frilly, classic and elegant, I guess I grew into it. I'm not mad on Elizabeth (I did love it as a child though!), but I don't dislike it, my mother also has Elizabeth as her second name, not sure if i'll continue the tradition yet or not. My third name is an old family name which I definitely will continue with my children.

I'm Catherine Lois, but am trying out Lynn, hence my username.
Catherine and Lois were my mom's grandmothers, and I love Catherine (aside from the constant spelling corrections I have to give people) but am not too fond of Lois. I think it's clunky and grandmotherly, and often wish my mom had gone with Elizabeth, her name and what people automatically assume my mn is. The other name my parents were thinking about for me is Margaret Susan, and I'm SO glad they went with Catherine Lois because I'm definitely not a Margaret! I would have ended up going by Maggie or Daisy or something like that :P One thing I like about my name is that it isn't popular. I'm the only Catherine in my grade, the only one in my school last year. There's a Catherine in the grade below me, a Kathryn in one of my dance classes, and my minister's name is Kathryn, but that's about as confusing as it gets... Except that my friends' parents, along with mine, seem to have had an obsession with K/C names. My best friend is Christina, and also in our group of friends we have a Katrina, Kasia, and Katelyn (Katie). It does get rather annoying but we all essentially answer to anything that starts with K, along with our parents'/siblings' names :PCatherine, an actress, dancer, singer, brainiac with a guilty pleasure of names.
Current favorites: Lilliana Joy, Marley Sophia, Isabella Diane, Gabrielle Jolie, Charlotte Amelia, Callista Berlin, Hope Adrienne, Isis Amelie, Austen Elisabeth, Jetta Blue; Wesley Owen, Benson Chase, Matthew Keaton, Brandon Kyle, Carson Gabriel, Elias Marshall, Anderson Cade, Xander Hale, Josiah Henry, Spencer Steven

I'm Maurilia Renee. I like that my name connects me to people that were important to my mother, my grandmother and a childhood friend, but as for someone who likes to be in the background (and never seems to quite manage it), my name feels like a bit much, maybe too odd.
Maurilia is very studious and serious, and neither of them really fit me. I'm smart enough but rather lazy, and fairly laid-back. I do like that I have a bunch of nicknames to choose from. I go by everything from Maury, Mar, Mo, Rilly, and Mouldy (which is a smoosh with my last name, lol). I kinda wish I could get people to call me Mia, but I'd feel odd suggesting it.
So I guess I love it, but at the same time it doesn't really fit.Vote on my list: http://www.babynames.com/namelist/9816413

My name is Caroline Joy. Caroline after a great aunt and Joy is an old family surname that has appeared as a first or middle name in just about every generation since. I love my name! It's unique enough among my peers while feeling very timeless. I enjoyed sort of having "Sweet Caroline" as a song from childhood through parties/weddings today. (I survived all the "Caroline in the City" references and Outkast lyrics and still appreciate it.)
I've always loved being the only Caroline in my class, never really used a nickname for it although it's a tricky one for small children to pronounce ("cow-wine" anyone?). Theres some lyn/line question, but I rarely get Carolyn anymore since it's less popular these days. I really dont like the name Carolyn!
I did however marry into a big Polish family, so I'm forever Karolina/linka to my inlaws.
