My name is Kerry and I like my name. I am not sure why people would spell the name Kerry Carrie when Carrie is short for Caroline and nothing to do with the name Kerry. Kerry is a country in Ireland and It's pronounced KEH-REE. Luckily I am from England and don't have the pronunciation problems. Also Kerry is mainly a girls name'so no one else thinks I will be a boy. I love my name :)
