my name is Laura but I like to tell some people my name is Lana because it is more exotic.

My First name is Lana, but I go by Kimberly. i've always been a bit embarrassed with the name Lana because people tend to tease you or ask a bunch of questions trying to figure out how that name care about. The older I get the less irritating it is. I'm just proud I had parents who put that much effort into finding a unique name.

My name is Lana. I used to hate it because everyone got it mispronounced but now I realize that it makes it more exotic and special. However I do get teased by the backwards version of it or get often called lay-nuh when It's prounced la-nuh. But either way I love my name and I wouldn't rather have it any other way
