I knew a girl at school named "Cherish". She had strawberry blonde hair and rosy cheeks. She was the twin sister of "Terrance". I liked the name Cherish when I was a child, because of the sweet little girl, but as an adult, I just can't seem to take to this name!

I know a woman with this name. She's in her 20's, is establishing herself in a prestigious field and is doing very well. Just another example that a name does not determine who or what a person will become and that people will not hold a non-traditional name against a fine candidate.

Anyway, stepping off my pedestal, she wears the name quite well.
