Named our daughter Kiersten, hoping people in Canada would pronounce it properly. They get it right about 1/2 the time. Being of Danish decent, we wanted it to be Kirsten which in Denmark is pronounced Keer'sten but we all know how it is pronounced in North America.

My name is Kierstin, pronounced Keer'stin. I'm 33 years old, and when I was younger I hated my name, because everyone mispronounced it...but as i've gotten older, I have come to like my name :) i've been called Kursten, Kirstie, Kristine, Kristina, Christian, Kristen, Krystal etc...I went to school with a girl named Kjierstin, pronounced the'same way as mine, but that is the only time I have personally met/known someone with the'same name as me.

My daughter is Kiersten, pronounced "KEer'stin." She's named after the title character of the young adult book "Kirsti," who is Finnish & pronounces her name "KEer'stee." My husband's ancestry is partially English so we used the English spelling.

i've had the name for 42 years and people tend to like and respect it. I always tell folks to "smile when you say it" so that it will come out of their mouths correctly. KIER (like the German word for cherry) can't be said correctly if you are frowning or pouting!

My name is Kierstyn :) I have loved the name'since birth. Of course, this all came with complications. I have to teach people how to pronounce it. It's pronounced KEer'sten. not KIR-sten. "Kier as in steer, not Kir as in fur," as I say. i've been searching so long for a proper nickname'so it would be easier on other people, since most of them have never met a girl with a name'such as mine :)
