"YEP, You guessed it..My name Iis Apryl! And your not seeing things, it is spelled with a "Y"! But that's not what's unique about me... I was born February 26th 1973!! Whatcha think about that?" Feb. 24, 2019:
"Hi, I am April and my middle name is Michelle. Yes, people ask me if I was born in April and I always say: "I'm unique, and even though I'm born in that month, doesn't mean I can't have such a beautiful, unique, precious name like that." Feb. 13, 2019:
"Yep! you guessed it! My name is April! I was born on the 7th of April. People always ask me "Is that why your parents asked you that?" lol it's kinda funny though." Oct. 15, 2018:
"My name is April and I love it. Of course you get those stupid jokes "where's your sister May?" or people assume you were born in April. But it's a lovely name, unique, easy to say, spell and pronounce. And its spelling is pretty fool proof when you say "my name is April, like the month." Plus is goes with any number of middle names. It has a nice flow. I feel lucky to be one of those people who like their name." Oct. 19, 2014:
"My name is April Ann. I hated my name when I was a kid but now I don't mind it so much. I love that fact that its easy and never misunderstood - hate that I am always asked if I was born in April - I just tell people I was conceived in April.. I am a December baby so this is almost true but usually shuts people right up! ;)" Oct. 5, 2014:
"I am April Leigh, born in April. I was supposed to be a boy to even things out. My parents were so confident in that result that they only selected a boy's name: Eric. So when I surprised them, they chose April. I asked them once why they didn't do the "logical" thing and call me Erica. My mom said "your Dad picked the name April because, he said, 'my favorite month of the year is April, she's born in April, so I'd like to have April all year long.'" I think that's very very sweet. I only rarely meet other Aprils. I also had nicknames - Apes and Abbos - and am always asked if I was born in April. I don't mind because I do like the name." Aug. 7, 2014:
"My name is April Rose and I love my name.it's a beautiful name but it's gets annoying when people say annoying nicknames about my name. I always get called Ape in school and this guy always says hey April May June July. People always ask if I was born in April and I say no, then they ask why I was named that if I wasn't born in the month. It's so annoying! Anyway I love my name and I hope all April's out there love their name too! Hi all April's out there!!!" Mar. 2, 2013:
"My name is April Joy and they are both my first name just like Mary Beth or something like that. I've just been called April most of my life. As I got older I've tried to get people to call me AJ but they like April b/c it's more feminine. ?The past few yrs I've like being called Joy because it's more mature but I'm starting to like April again b/c it has no ethnicity, people are usually nice to you and think you are a young, bubbly personality. I used to be shy and a nerd but I broke out of my shell and own my name. I was NOT born in April though. People chuckle when they find out. My mom said she found in April she was having a little girl and it was a joy in April! Ugh! I know I would have hated November Joy! Lol. ?Yes and like the rest of you I get, "where's May and June?" and "April fools" when I was younger. Never bothered me much though. I love meeting people born in April b/c we usually hit it off. They like my name b/c it's their birth month!" Aug. 8, 2011:
"My daughter is called April and i just love the name she was born in March but came a month early and we new we were having a girl so we had already named her April but she gets the silly comments too but she said she just laughs them off because people who make a laugh of your name are the ones with problems." Jul. 28, 2011:
"Im an April Fools!! My name is April Rochelle and yes I was born in April. April 1st to exact. I love my name and when I meet other Aprils its like we are at a family reunion, like OMG I havent seen you(April) in like so many years!!! its a joy of fresh air to meet other Aprils because we are rare speices.LOL. There were and still are times when Im call Ape, which I used to cry my eyes out and be ready to fight but Im over it now! There are still times when someone calls me Angel, April May June, A-Preal, A-Boo, Able, Rachel(???), Amanda(???); the list goes on and on. But I just thank God for giving me the most talked about name, born in the most played joke month, born on the 1st of that month too!!! What more could I ask for??? April is the most precious month ever!! If you dont like it get gone from around here!! April 1st a Fool!!! Love me!!!" Jan. 5, 2011:
"I enjoy my name. The only thing is as a kid growing up I didnt like the April fools jokes or the good old April, May, June, July. Or the its not April its..... I was born May 12th. I was suppose to be born April 30th, so I tortured my mom longer than I was suppose to lol. But the name is easy to remember and has a great meaning. Also some reason people call me Racheal weird. All the Aprils out there hello." Jul. 7, 2009:
"I'm an APril, too. I was born on April 1st. People ask.."Is that why your names April?" And I just say that my mom wasn't very creative. I also get the same comments like, "You're a little late aren't ya?" during the spring & summer months. It gets annoying. My little brothers always called me Apey, Ape or APrella (Like Cinderella). I get the April FOols jokes, too since my bday is April 1st..Like "So, you're a joke are ya?" Lame. But I guess I like my name. I think it suits me." Mar. 11, 2009:
"My name is April and I love it. Unlike the April Rose below, I was not born in my month. I'm happy to say my parents just thought it was pretty. And it really fits me. Sometimes I joke when someones asks if I was born in April and I say no, when they're confused, I answer, "my parents couldn't spell December." still doesn't change the fact that I love my name and everyone agrees that no other name would fit me! A unique name for a unique girl! a Thomas wasn't born in the month of Thomas and Nancy wasn't born in the month of Nancy! Ya know? Note to Rachel, you're name is beautiful, stop being so hard on yourself!" Dec. 5, 2008:
"My name is April and I love it. I was born in April and I too get the nicknames mentioned in the other comments, ie Ape, April May June, April Showers, even Janutober. I love it when people sing "April in Paris" to me. I usually get old men singing...."April Love"." Dec. 5, 2008:
"My name is April Rose and I absolutly love it!
I think it's a very unique and beautiful name.
There's always the constant question of "Were you named April because you were born in April?"
Well yes I was. I don't think that anyway who wasn't born in April has the right to have the name. It's special to me and should be more exclusive to those born in the month.
Of course I also get the April Fool's jokes and things but I'd never change my name.
I've never met any other Aprils but I know I'm not the only one even though I like to think I am.
And I love the combination of April & a flower.
That's why I love my name it's just so beautiful.
To me it will always be the best name ever." Nov. 14, 2008:
"To add to the June 2008 comments, others I frequently get are: is your middle name May? do you have a sister name May? April in Paris (often sung to me)
I like the name. And somehow I usually tune out the mentions of "April" when that time of the year comes around. What's great about it is that it's fairly unique. Until a couple years ago, I had never met anyone else named April. Now I've met a couple and see it popping up on TV shows. Apparently there was an April on the soap Dallas long ago; maybe that's the real story behind my name! (I was born in June.)" Oct. 12, 2008:
"MY big sisters name is April and i think it is nice there is not alot of people called April so it is nice to hear an unusual name!!Many people say that it is just a month but i think it is also nice as a name!!!" Dec. 18, 2006:

"Hi, April here 😉 Wondering how many April Lynn's or April Lynne out there? I have never met another April who didn't carry this middle name as well so I'm curious how many out there are or aren't. Plus I'd love to hear other April middle names beyond Lynne." May. 22, 2020:
"Hello world! My name is April. But my name is spelled with two l's & a e. Aprille Michelle to be exact. I also got the Where's May,June & July. Or Hey April showers. Or W'sup Apee. Never did these jokes bother me. They mostly put me in the spotlight. For that moment. I haven't ran into many girl's/ women that have my unique name & I have always loved my name. For that I thank God, my dear Mama & Daddy for it." Dec. 28, 2019:
"My name is April Dawn. Yes I was teased alot as a child, but I still think love it" Feb. 11, 2018:
"My name is April and i was born on April 1st. I actually like my name. A lot of people that i meet find it rather funny that my name is April and i was born in April, some people think im joking when i tell them my name. Many people also joke around with me about it. It get pretty annoying at times though especially when everyone says hey "April, May, June"." May. 22, 2011:
"My name is April. My middle name is Ann. I was suppose to be named Chrystal but I was born 20 days early, threw off my mom and she named me April. I was born on April 30 the last day. She was going to give me May for a middle name. Thankfully my dear Grandmother was present at my birth and convinced her not too! I go by April Ann and have since early high school. I am now in my 30's and known to all as April Ann. People assume I am from the south because or the double name but I am not. I like April Ann. It suits me and sounds best coming from my husbands mouth!" Jul. 10, 2010:
"Im an April, I know tons of Aprils. I hated my name growing up. All of the stupids things people say (which the other comments point out). Now that Im older I just roll my eyes at people and tell them they are not very creative and Ive heard that since I was a kid." Jan. 13, 2010:
"My name is April also and I am thinking about changing it because I hate all the comments and the jokes that people associate with my name. Jerks in schoole would call me Ape and always ask if I was born in April. It just gets so annoying and my Spanish teacher always called me by the months of the year except for in April which is when I was conceived and that is why I am named April, not because I was born in April. My birthday is in October and I really wouldn't mind being called October. People always say how pretty my name is and I do like it I jsut can't stand the jokes and the bad memories so I am defiantely changing it. No offense to any other person named April, it is a very lovely name." Nov. 27, 2009:
"I'm an April - growing up the nicknames were Ape, Apey, Calendar Girl, April Showers (by older men), Do you have a sister named May, June, September! You're an April fools baby!
The names I've been mistakenly called are Rachel and Alice.
I enjoy my name more as an adult - it's unique and to date I'm yet to meet another April! Many people tell me how beautiful my name is which is always lovely." Nov. 7, 2009:
"im called april and its great
i dont like all the nick names tho
i dont think i would call my duaghter april tho but its a beautiful name isint babes" Jan. 6, 2009:
"I like my name. It's not as common as other names. And I don't mind the nickname "ape". the name has been good to me so far!!" Nov. 1, 2008:
"I have heard the same questions all my life. "Are you born in April?" (Yes), "Are you named April because you were born in April?" (No) "Is your name April May June?" ...and so on. I would never do that to my kid. But other than that, the name is not too terrible." Jun. 20, 2008:
"I always get asked, "were you born in April?" Nope, I was a May baby! The name April is ok." Feb. 9, 2008:
"I always get asked, "were you born in April?" Nope, I was a May baby! The name April is ok." Feb. 9, 2008:
"people always, whenever they say my name they have to say another month eg. april, may, june.

"My name is Crystal but people have always called me April. Most of these people did not know that my baby sisters name is April, they say i look like an April to them. Funny because they always call her Crystal. Maybe we got thewrong names at birth. :)" Apr. 25, 2007:
"my name isnt april but i was born in april april 23 ooooo yea baby" Apr. 11, 2007:
"April showers bring may flowers. I hope you know how to use scissors so you can cut the flowers and then i also hope that you go to wal-mart and buy yourself a pair of rubber boots and a pink polka dotted umbrella because then after april it is may and it will shower. but i messed that up so do it anyway and look like a fool! an apple a day keeps the skunks away." Jun. 25, 2006:
"I'm 30 and I like being an April, I run into a few other Aprils here and there, but not very many. Most people can spell it. The things I don't like are: no nickname - "ape" just isn't nice, and during the months of March - July I get endless comments about it being my month, or 'your time is past' ect. Finally, I was born in Sept - everyone assumes I was born in April." May. 17, 2006:
