My name is Drea but with an h so Dreah. But when I tell people my name is Dreah they say, " is it Andrea or just Dreah?" It's really really annoying.

This is my name, so of course I like it. :P my friend Amy was the one who bestowed this nickname on me (full name is Andrea), now all my friends call me it. It's more unique than my full name, so I dig it.
