HI'my name is Pierce and I live in England and I am the only Pierce in my village. I love my name and love the fact that it is different. But last Christmas everyone in my class at school spelt my name wrong in my Christmas Card, examples - Piers, Pires, Piser, Pieraes. But they were only aged 8 - 10 years so I suppose they will get used to it.
