Danielle Rose is my given name... always kind of hated it growing up because I grew up knowing a handful of other Danielles. It was also too frilly for me, so I've been a Dani all my life, which I love.

FutureMommyTo5 Says:


This is m name and being born when it was super popular im kinda surprised that I've never met anyone with the same name. I do go to a mostly hispanic school and get called by Daniela instead of Danielle. For nicknames some of my family call me D or Dani, my sister and her friends call me Dan and i think ill try to get more people to call me Dan. I always get compliments on my name.
