I have to tell people its like Hanna with an S in the front... but if I had a dollar for every Shannon, Shawna, or Shana... It used to really bug me. It has two n's next to each other! How do you screw that up? But as I have aged, I have gotten more relaxed about it. That and I had a friend named Sean who's parents, while lovely, thought his name was pronounced "seen", and I realized that there is no hope for some people.

Daiseymae Says:


I love this name.

Essa Says:


Me too! Although my parents went for an unusual spelling (slightly irish ends in 'gh') but it also rhymes with banana. Such a pain! But actually I quite like my name, I think I would've preferred it spelled phonetically though.
