For me, this is way better than Adrianna.

adr1con Says:


My name is Adrienne. It is annoying that, since it is considered a unisex name, people automatically say Adrianna instead because I am a girl. They try to change it to a more feminine form that they are comfortable with, despite the fact that it's incorrect. People never know how to spell it. Even though it is me still, i would not have chosen this name for myself.

This name is beautiful. It's not too popular, but not unheard of either.

cabosanmucus Says:


I was surprised to see that this is an old woman name in France. But in America, Adriennes are 30s maybe 40s and younger.

This is my name! I really don't love or hate it. People may always ask me how to spell it, but I've never met another person with the same name. Woah! Thinking about my own identity weirds me out...
