My name is Nellie,I'm twelve, and I like my name. Its really very old fashioned and original, and I think its cool because I was named after Nellie Bly. Anyone every heard of her? She was an awesome reporter and oh I don't have so much to say about her, but I can't right now. If anyone's inter'sted in her you should wikipedia her. She was a really amazing person.
