My brothe's name is Wesley. Whats funny about his name is many people call him Westley and spell it WESTLEY. But It's really spelled WESLEY.

12/13/2023 00:39:50

My name was the only good thing my momma did for me.

My brother is Wesley but always called Wes. Sometimes we call him Weasley but he doesn't like that. People call me Wes too since we look alike. I like the name but it has soft consonants and tricky to enunciate. Be careful using Wes if It's messy saying your last name with it.

People sometimes put a "t" in it and I don't like it.

I named my son Wesley Kye,he was born Dec 2017. I think it is a great name because it isnt as common now as it used to be & I wanted him to be the only wesley in his class,And he can shorten it when he gets older to Wes & its kind-of a jock name. We live in a small town & as far as I know there wont be any wesleys in his class but there will be a weston. I dont guess thats too close to wesley

My grandfather thought for years that my name was infact Westley, like the wind, combined with Wesley, how funny. Ive been called 'snipes' after my black brother Wesley Snipes. Wez, is just the easy way to say it. I get Wessley from my mother when of course Im in trouble. Here in Australia, Ive only ever met a hand full of Wesley's which is great, cause there's nothing worse then walking down the'street and calling out "Michael" and 8 of 10 males turn around, guaranteed. Anyway, glad to meet you all Wesleys, and the best part about my name is, my surname is Walker, WW.....

Weston is my name and I love it. My brother's name is Brian and I always felt my name was cooler growing up since It's more rare. I definitely get pissed though when people accidently call me Wesley if they've only ever heard me called Wes before. But It's something I kinda enjoy getting mad and pretending to be pretentious about. Also growing up some people called me West, which I didn't really mind. "Wes(t) the best" was also a nickname as a kid.
