My name is Roxanne Marie, I am 41. The name used to be very rare, i didn't come across any Roxanne's until I got older. Now they are all over.

My name is Roxanne Lynne, and my parents actually got my name from a baby book by randomly choosing. I use to hate my name because I was teased all through middle and high school but I really love it now that I'm in college. its not a very common name at all. I always wanted my name to be Roxanna though : ) I was born at 6:34 in the morning though so I suppose Roxanne is better in the end. I rather people sing me Roxy Heart from Chicago than the police song though.

When I was little I was unsure about my name, it seemed so unfair to have an unusual name. Now I'm 24 and I absolutely love my name. My friends and family call me Roxy which I also love! I still don't know another Roxanne so it makes me feel special.

When I was little I was unsure about my name, it seemed so unfair to have this name know one else had. Now I'm 24, and I absolutely love it! People always tell me how lovely my name is and that is such a good feeling. All my friends and family call me Roxy which I also love!

My name is Roxanne Isabel. I used to get so mad at my mom for naming me that. I just wanted to be named like everyone else, but it seems as I got older I learned to love my name. I love how not a whole lot of people have it! The only thing that I don't like about it, is if I go anywhere and tell people my name they start singing the song! lol.

my name is Roxanna but i go by Roxanne....its funny because when people ask me whats my name and i tell them Roxanne i always get a compliment of "what a nice name or what a sexy name" then again depending who's asking (lol) it has become quite a popular name over the past few years and its about time parents are being more creative when choosing a name for their daughter because your typical mary, patty, susan etc.. are boring names.

My name is Roxanne Angie. I was named after my Grandmother (Anne) and my Great-Grandmother (Angelina). Growing up I didn't like my name because it seemed "odd" to me, but as I've matured I absolutely LOVE my name.

i LOVE LOVE LOVE the first name Roxy, with the middle name Lola (Roxy not short for Roxanne, but for Roxanna)i think its so gorgeous. it just sounds trendy & amazing. 'Roxy-Lola' oh i love it.

I was always and only called Roxy by my Father, now everyone close to me calls me Roxy. It makes me feel good! What i don't like is the association of the Police-Roxanne song, sung to me by almost everyone i've ever met. I wouldn't change my name for the world. Although i like to spell my name Rocsan, sometimes to be a lil different!

I love the name Roxanne! My mother is going to have a baby girl in a few months, and I would love it if she named her that. I've always loved that name, and I sometimes still wish that was my actual name. But I'm happy with the name I was born with: Raven.
