Bonnie "Bo" Marie - As a child and I always wanted something a little more 'normal,' but only because I couldn't get bouncy balls and mugs with my name on ANYWHERE... Since I hit my teenage years I love it - although I still to this day have never met another Bonnie. It's quite a popular name for dogs in the UK though I think as most people I meet tend to say "Oh! I used to have a dog/ horse/ guinea pig named Bonnie!" I've always been a little different though (bit of a rebel through high school) so I think it suits me People never forget it either.

My name's Elizabeth, and so far I like it. It's got such a wide variety of nicknames that one could fit it to any personality, but I prefer not to use a nickname. Most of the other Elizabeths I know are Lizzie, and everyone automatically assumes that's my nickname too, which is the only thing I find annoying.

My name is Bethan Lowri, I used to hate it as a child because there were 4 other people named Bethan in my class at primary school (It was very popular), but when I moved to high school, I was the only Bethan in my year, which was OK. I always wanted to change my name to something more exotic until I was around 12 or 13, but after that it never bothered me. I quite like it now, and I'm realising it's quite uncommon in different countries. As for my middle name, I love it...it's prn. Low-ree, rather that Laww-ree. I would happily pass on middle name to my daughter. I was going to be named Holly, as I was born so close to Christmas, but there was a girl in my year in high school named Holly and we used to be friends, so I'm quite glad that's not my name now, although I do love it. There's no reason that I know of, of why my name is Bethan Lowri my parents both liked the names. Bethan is Welsh for Elizabeth, and Lowri means Laura/Laurel, so it's a nice way of using classic names whilst being subtle about it. If I had to change my name now, I don't think I would.Libby Felicity Annalise Isla Phoebe Carina Violet Martha Ariana | Iowan Macsen Henry Isaac Jude Freddie Aneurin Niall Adair

My name is Brianne Rose. Now that I'm an adult I absolutely love my name. However as a child I could also never find anything personalized and people often would call me Brianna instead which drove me nuts! I also never had the nickname Bri growing up from my parents...so when people that I met for the first time tried to call me this I didn't like it. My Mom said that when she was trying to find a name for me she wanted something she had never heard of and she wanted it to mean strong. When she stumbled upon Brianne she knew this was it. My middle name Rose was the name of my great-grandmother (father's favorite grandmother). I love the fact that my Mom put a lot of thought into my name and that my middle name (while extremely popular now) is still beautiful and has family connections.

My name is Eliza Harriet. I've always loved it as I never really met another Eliza as a child/teenager.
Now (aged 30) I hear the name everywhere which I have to say, I'm selfishly gutted about.
I loved having an 'unusual' name.
Still love it though..and Harriet I've always loved too. Thinking of using it as a middle name to continue the trend onward.Mother to three. Awaiting a fourth.

My name is Jessica Emily Faith.
I haven't really been called Jessica throughout my life. My family have always called me: Jess, Jessie, Sissy (my little cousin can't pronounce it,) or Yessy as that is the German pronounciation. I knew a few mean girls in school named Jessica so I became a little embarrased about my name and so when I met people I went by Emily instead.
But despite that I was always very proud to resight my name as I loved the flow of it and the fact that Faith was my great nanna's church name.
I love my name as a whole, but there are days when I am disappointed that my name was one picked at the tip of its popularity. All in all however Jessica Emily Faith is a part of me.Pretty Little Ladies of the Week: Angelina & Estella

My name is Rosalyn Heather - my oldest sister named me, as my parents were having a hard time coming up with a girl name they liked that started with an "R" (all my sibs have "R" names). My middle name is the same as my mother's.
I love my name. It's incredibly unique - I've only ever personally met 3 people with the same name - but not insanely weird. Growing up I was constantly told how beautiful my name was by strangers. It literally means "beautiful flower" so it's hard to go wrong with a name like that.
In my teens and early 20s, most people called me Rozz, but it's pretty well split now. I enjoy both names, so either way I'm happy.

My name is Samantha Marie. My Dad named me after Samantha Fox. However my Mum was set on Nadia, but as my mum had a c-section my dad officially registered my name.
My Grandmother's name is Marie and it is also my mum's middle name (and will also be my daughter's middle name)
I quite like my name but only regret the fact that it is not very unique and I have met quite a few Samantha's!

I am Amy Elizabeth and have always liked my name. I love my first name, even as a child and even though there are zero related nn options. It's just short and sweet and sounds cheerful to me. Then when I was young the movie Congo came out and of course I was thrilled I shared a name with the gorilla because I loved animals so much. It was a pretty popular name at the time and there have always been other Amy's in my grade, if not my class but that never bothered me. When I got old enough to look it up it just got better when I found out that it meant "beloved" and was akin to "friend" (amie) in French. I am not sure if my parents knew that when they named me (They didn't find out the sex until I was born and just assumed they were having a boy named Michael lol) but I always thought it was great. Elizabeth is my mother's name so that was a no-brainer since they wanted a longer middle name with my short 3 letters (not to mention my last name is only 4). My son also has two nn options for his name that are 3 letters and I admit I did that on purpose =] As a little kid it is easy to learn how to spell and write. He seems to like his name too so I hope he never feels differently, it's a great feeling to love your name!
