My name is Alana, pronounced Ah-lah-nuh. I hated my name when I was a kid. I even convinced my 1st grade teacher that my name was Jenny. But now I love that my name is unique. My nicknames from it are: Ally, Lani, Lala and Ani. Most common mispronunciation: Ah-lane-ah. Weirdest mispronunciation: Caroline. Seriously, Alana to Caroline. I don't know

This is my name and I LOVE it. Kirstin is a beautiful but uncommon name. With various spellings, I think "Kirstin" is the most elegant/classy version of the name. However... You will never find a mug, name plate, or sticker'set with "Kirstin". People will constantly mispronoun and misspell your name. A small price to pay for a great a name!

This is my name and It's often mispronounced and misspelled but i've gotten used to it. My name is pronounced Lay-la and spelled Leila. My cousin is named Leilani so they call me Leila and her Lani. Just so we don't get confused. Overall I love my name. I haven't met anyone with the'same name yet but I hope to.
