"I am not crazy about my name, especially because it is spelled with an I than an E. My mom wanted to call me Michelle because I have brother named Michael and she always wanted a Micheal and Michelle. My dad wanted Ilene. Dad won that one. It wasn't until after they named me that my dad has a cousin with the same name. (He had too many cousins to count.) My middle name is Marie, my last name begins with an A so my intials are IMA. My 8th grade teacher kept telling me to marry someone with the last name Over, so I could be Ilene Over. In two companies I worked for there have been 3 Ilene's and we all spelled our names differently." Dec. 1, 2010:
"My name is always pronounced (should be "I lean") and spelled wrong. I've seen it with at least 7 different spellings: Eileen, Eilene, Aileen, Ailene, Ilene, Ileen, Ilean. But if I tell the really bad joke, what does a one legged woman call herself? (I lean) - people don't forget it. Also the song, Come On Eileen helped, but the song Goodnight Irene confuses and more people know Irene's than they do Ilene's." Jun. 13, 2006:
"My Mom and I are both named Ilene. My grandparents wanted to combine their mother's names: Idella and Lena and came up with Ilene. I was named after my mother because when my parents were about to agree on the name, Dawn, my Dad said he had an ex-girlfriend named Dawn. So that ended the discussion and pretty much the only name they could agree on was my mother's." Jun. 13, 2006:
