I like my name and the'spelling, even'though many people mispronounce it but hey not a biggy. I can not find my name pre printed on anything but I have moved on since my kiddo days and as an adult it doesnt bother me so much any more. I have yet to come across another Kari spelled the'same way and maybe one day I will, but hey I could have a worse name.

Until now I did not know that anyone at all could be called VEDA. I do hate the name with all my heart-PARENTS BEWARE WHAT YOU NAME YOUR CHILDREN-.My father's ego made him always incline to the extravagant and the "unique" therefore he chose the name Veda for me, luckly it is my middle name,I am from Argentina and I think the name Veda is defen'tly not common here AND IT IS NOT consider a beautiful name.

My name is Karrie. I havent seen anyone ever'spell my name correctly. I guess the way i spell it is uncommon because everyone who tries to spell it either'spells it like "Kerry", "Karry", "Carrie", or "Kari". Even my aunt's & uncles on both my mothe's & fathe's side forget how my name is spelled.But i like my name :) Ive gone through elementary school, Jr. High, & High School w/o another girl having the'same name as me. It was pretty cool ;D
