  • "My name is Camilla. Pronounced Ka-mill-a. I'm from West Virginia, U.S. I have always loved my name. I even enjoy and look forward to people mispronouncing it and asking me where my name came from. I even like correcting them. ! I was never teased in school for my name, but people have associated my name with the Camilla Bowles with Prince Charles. For some reason people always want to talk to me about their relationship afterwards, which i always thought was weird, its not like we have a club and we all know each other. Anyway I don't know any Camilla's. I only know one Cammie. My mother is Irish and my father is Italian. I was named after my great grandfather,Camillo, on my fathers side. I've always loved my name, i never thought it was "weird" instead I loved it for being unique. I don't like generic names like Ashley or John. Everyone should be proud of their beautiful name!!!"

  • "My name is Camilla, and I find the name very atrracting and fitting to myself. People call me 'Cameelah', 'Carmella', 'Camiller' and I find nothing wrong with that. No matter if there doing it on purpose, which is okay because everyone makes mistakes, and when they call me that on purpose is okay also. I can take a little purposly mispronunciation once in a while, but sometimes it gets frusturating. My best friend is also named Camilla [which is a little awkward sometimes] and she looks exactly like a boy. She has her hair shaved like a boy, she wears men's clothing but shes really, a very sweet girl. I feel that I was lucky to meet someone with the same name as me, so different, just like my friend Camilla is. :] Signed, Camilla Alexandra Page" Oct. 31, 2008: Report as inappropriate
