Fortunately there are other "Sherry" from Bruce Springsteen & one from Steve Perry (although spelled differently). This is my nn (legally a Sheryl, but I've never been called that on a regular basis) & I didn't like it at all when I was growing up. Once I stopped meeting so many girls named Sherry/Sherri/Sherrie/Sheri/Shari/Cheri/Cherie plus all the Sheryl variants, I reconciled w/my name. :)
