My name is Angela,and I can't imagine having any other name. i've always felt like it fit me well. Despite it being VERY common, I haven't known more than a few other Angela's in my 38 years, and I was born in 1993 which was one of many years that Angela was in the top 10 most common names. My middle name is Amber, and it has a nice rhythm to it with both my maiden name as well as my married name.

My name is Angela Marie. My mom liked Angela and my dad liked Marie. They ended up calling me Marie. I like Marie much better. There were always other Angelas in school so I am glad I didn't have to compete. I don't like the nicknames Angie either. In college it was sometimes easier to just go by Angela for certain classes instead of having to explain to the professor.
