"My name is Jacquelyn and I love it!!! I hate it when people spell it incorrectly and I hate the name Jackie which everyone seems to want to call me all of the time.
I am so glad that my parents decided to spell it Jacquelyn instead of Jacqueline." Jul. 17, 2013:
"My name is Jacquelyn too and i love it my middle name is Grace. i just love it it sounds so pretty and nice. When i was little i just hated it coz my friends couldnt spell it right or say it right but everyone so i told them just to call me Jacqui now and i'm cool with that aswell." Sep. 3, 2011:

"This is my name and I love it. My cousins sometimes call me Jac but I sort of like that too. I love my name!" Nov. 20, 2010:
"This is my name, too. My first name is Jacquelyn and my middle name is Claire, so my friends usually call me Jacey, because it sounds like my initials, J.C. I like Jacey better than Jackie. I always hated being called Jackie, or Jacquie, or whichever spelling you think justifies the nickname. I love how my name is spelled, and I can't stand when people spell it Jacqueline. I don't mind it when it's one time, but teachers that have known me for over five years that can't spell it right start to get annoying. But it's okay, I don't mind people spelling it wrong, because I know that the prettiest way to spell it is the way I do :) I have never known anyone with the same name as me. I think it's a beautiful and unique name." Jun. 5, 2010:
"Heey people my name is jacquelyn...But i always like putting a extra n on the end.People say that the name fits me because its unique like me.ha.I love it people call me Jay,Jaxson?,and Jaquee?,and jacquie.Weel i dont understand how they can not say it right its weird.i understand how yu feel but in away i feel unique cuz jacquelyn is a name that yu can spell many ways and it can fit yu however so love yu name haa.its pretty ha.loves Jacquelyn Sue,<3" Dec. 30, 2009:
"I was named Jacquelyn after my mother Jacqueline. Family pronounces both names as two syllables, not three (like Jac-lyn, and Jac-leen). I use "Lyn" to avoid all the spelling/pronunciation corrections." Dec. 21, 2009:
"My name is Jacquelyn Leigh. It took my husband 8 years to learn to spell it. Other than that, no one has really had a problem with it. I don't mind when people misspell it as Jacqueline. I mess up names too (I'm a teacher). Get over it ladies! It's just a name. As long as YOU can spell it right, who cares! If it bothers you that much, then go by Jackie. I promise almost no one will mess that up. :) (But I like to spell it Jacki.) I used to get called Jack-O-Lantern around Halloween, too. I also got "Wacky Jacky" and "Yacky Doodle" (like Yanky Doodle went to town...) Stop complaining about your name ladies! It's yours to keep. I wish my biggest problem was people misspelling my name...." Oct. 28, 2009:
"my name in Jacquelyn Grace, but everyone calls me Jacquie. I happen to love my name and think that it's very beautiful, but I don't like it when other people are called Jacquie. I don't have any idea why, it just sounds like such a stupid name when talking about anyone else. I love the name Jacquelyn, even though no one says it correctly. Like most other people on here, I tend to be called "Jack-lin" or "jac-que-line" when meeting new people. The correct pronunciation is "Jac-quel-yn". it took my friends forever to learn it, but the trick is to tell people to pronounce it like this,..."Jac-wool-in" or "jac-qhil-in" its much eaier for them to understand that way ;)
I also have manyyyyyyy nicknames,..... "Jacq" "Jacquie-O" (yess after JFK's wife, even though i'm not named after her) "Jac Jac" "Jay" "JB / Jay Bee" (my last name is brown). So yea i have a lot. I don't mind my name at all, and the only reason that I go by Jacquie is because Jacquelyn is a long name, no different than a lot of people. Like someones name being Kaitlyn and being called Kate or Katie. The only thing that tends to bug me alot, is when people spell my jacquie name wrong, j-a-c-q-u-i-e. NOT j-a-c-k-i-e, or j-a-k-e-y, or even j-a-c-q-u-i. Other than that, I absolutly LOVE my name.
~ Jacquelyn Grace Brown =)" Aug. 19, 2009:
"My name is Jacquelyn, I hated it when I was a little girl. But once I got older I learnt to love it! It's unique and pretty! I love that the spelling is different. I always get compliments that it's pretty. Though I absolutely loathe being called 'Jackie', "I say, "I'm Jacquelyn or Jay, but NEVER Jackie!" I do wish people would pronounce it correctly; its jac-weh-lyn..." Aug. 9, 2009:
"My name is Jacquelyn Trinh and I'm 12 years old, I think my name is well normal, everyone has a name that's different then we al expect. Ok I know that Jacquelyn is french and I'm vietnamese. My nickname is Jakii, it's way easier for people and it's different from Jackie too. That's all, lates. :3" Apr. 14, 2009:
"My Name Is Jacquelyn Nicole Like a Previous Post... I Hate it when Teachers call me Jackie and I Just prefer Family And Friends to Call me Jacque I Like Spelling It that way because it makes it unique So many people have pronouced my name wrong and spelled it wrong that it pisses me of I'm also called Jac or Jac Jac I Love My Name no one in my school is named Jacquelyn so it makes me feel extra special :D So be proud of your uniquely-spelled name!" Feb. 16, 2009:
"Honestly I used to love my name. I still do, But very seldom do I ever get called by it. People are reallly lazy and decide to shorten it without my permission. Like they call me "Jackie" which is my dads name, So thats kinda disturbing. My best friends call me "Jac" because it was shorter to text. People pronounce my name wrong to. They say Jack-Lynn and I always have to correct them and say its Jack-qua-Lynn. It annoys me how they can't pronounce it, Its spelled like Jacquelynn. My mom wanted it to be more original. Which definetly is. So glad I have a cool name, Just wish people would actually call me by it." Dec. 24, 2008:
"My name is Jacquelyn and my middle name is Judith (named after my aunt who died of complications after her birth). I was called JJ because of my initials pretty much from the start, and when I was little, I actually thought JJ was my full name, and got mad when people called me Jacquelyn. I go by either name now and I think Jacquelyn is a pretty name. I don't like the nickname Jackie though..not quite sure why..I just don't like the sound of it I guess. But I like having a pretty name like Jacquelyn for more formal things like work, or what most adults prefer to call me, but the nickname JJ is easier and shows a more fun side of me. =)" Dec. 20, 2008:
"My Name Is Jacquelyn Suzanne. I LOVE IT. i go by Jacque" Dec. 19, 2008:
"i love my name Jacquelyn but most people call me Jackie but its okay....some dumb teachers have told me that's not how you spell it.Its Jacqueline but i love Jacquelyn!!!" Oct. 1, 2008:
"Love my name...Jacquelyn Nicole. I've gone by Jackie my whole life but now I want to be called Jacquelyn because it sounds so professional. I am asking all of my professors and employers to call me by my full name "Jacquelyn." Professional and classy here I come..." Jun. 17, 2008:
"Haha, I now love my name, Jacquelyn, but as a kid, I hated it with a passion! I would say, "I have no clue who Jacquelyn is, my name is Jaci". Unfortunatly, that just gave me even MORE trouble. Everyone pronounced it wrong (like Jay-see instead of Ja-kee like it should be) so in college I got over myself and went back to Jacquelyn. Soooo yeah. Yay college! Jk..." Jun. 13, 2008:
"heyy my name is jacquelyn too i like it alot people are always saying stuff like "a pretty name for a beautiful little girl" or "ilike your name it fits you so if your name is jacquelyn too be proud of it!!" May. 27, 2008:
"I believe it sounds very professional. As well I think being able to have to different nicknames is great I can change it into whatever I feel like being,still giving me some choice after my parents chose it." May. 17, 2008:
"I also was given the name "Jacquelyn," and I now love it after oh-so-many years. My birth certificate reads "Jacqueline," because of a mistaken clerical error with the recording clerk, but my mother never spelled it that way, so I never did. My birth certificate is the only official record spelling the name that way; all other records show the "lyn" spelling. I didn't like it growing up, but I grew into it. It is classy & sophisticated just like the other Jacquelyn said -- even regal! Being an only child, I was "the Princess" . . . and now "The Queen!" I have only met one other, but I see the spelling every once in a while. As for "Jackie," it's a great equalizer and people respond positively to it. It wasn't until I was nearly an adult that I learned that I shared the name with Jacqueline Kennedy (first & middle) -- same sound but different spelling. That was just a coincidence -- I was not named after her. You Jacquelyns who don't like the name for one reason or another will eventually learn to like it if not love it -- I guarantee. It just takes some living before you reflect its positive attributes." May. 7, 2008:
"I hapen to love my name. I think it is unique and beautiful. My parents wanted to spell it with the -line but I am glad there was a little mess up and I got the -lyn instead. People do misspell it but there are more important things to be upset about. I never have had a problem with anyone mispronouncing it but I always get Jackie and that I do not like." Jan. 19, 2008:
"my name is jacquelyn and people cant spell it.. i hate it when they do dat" Jan. 16, 2008:
"I know one jacquelyn as Penpal, I didnt seeen her but she is too good, very loving and careful...
I love her." Jul. 13, 2007:
"My name is spelled Jacquelyn! This spelling is most unique and I LOVE it. I am not French, though, even though that is the origin. People always spell it incorrectly, usually the suffix making it -line. I have met a few others who spell the root differently as well: jaclyn or jaqueline. I have often though about spelling my nick name jacqui instead of jackie, but I don't think i will. pronouncing it is always a struggle so people just call me jackie. i pronounce my name "jack-kwa-lin"" Apr. 29, 2007:
"My name is Jacquelyn and I have grown to love it. Everyone calls me Jackie...and if I had a nickel for every time someone spelled my name Jacqueline, I'd never have to work again!" Apr. 6, 2007:
"love the name-instant "royalty" from the kennedys'. My first born daughter will be Jacquelyn Beth Abel.

"i love being referred to as Jacquelyn. there not to many of those who spell it like that and for short its jacque. not to many of thost around either but i love my name." Oct. 19, 2006:
"I didn't like it as a child because it was difficult for other people and sounded kind of infantile to me. Now I like it a lot though as it is unique and because Jackie O was such an inspiring person. Ja Qua Lyn" Sep. 1, 2006:
"my friend is a twin and her name is Jacquelyn. since i can never spell it we made a sone it goes JAC-QUE-LYN and her nickname is Jaci also verry unique" Aug. 21, 2006:
"My name is Jacquelyn and all my teachers spell it Jacqueline and my nickname is Jaci and yet again everyone spells it Jackie, Jacy, and the worst one is J.C.! I love my name and the way I spell it because it's unique and it's what makes me "me."" Aug. 18, 2006:
"My mom named me Jacquelyn with the intention of the pronunciation "Zgack-kweh-lyn." Yet, it was found easier to just pronounce it "Jack-kwa-lyn."" Jun. 3, 2006:
"I love this name! I don't know why my mom spelled it Jacquelyn, but as far as I've ever heard, Jacqueline and Jacquelyn are pronounced the same way in most parts. I pronounce jac-wa-lin, and i HATE it when people say jac-lin. there are some people who want it pronounced that way who spell it "Jaclyn" which is much better, in my opinion, if that's how you want it to sound! BTW, in French pronunciation, it would be spelled Jacqueline, and pronounced "zhac-leen"." Apr. 14, 2006:
"my name is Jacquelyn and for the first comment now you have meet someone that spells it Jacquelyn" Apr. 6, 2006:

I don't go by Jacky...And i do love my name too! Unfortunately i had a Step-grandma who used to call me Jocallyn...until i flipped on her..lol.." Dec. 23, 2005:
"I love my name said the proper way and not 'nicked' to Jackie, a name for more and more men these days...its rarely thta a Jacquelyn finds another Jacquelyn that isn't a Jacqueline or a jaklyn or etc... I am pround of my name and I make sure people get it right(without being impolite)." Dec. 19, 2005:
"My name is Jacquelyn and I pronounce it JAC-A-LIN. Most people misspell my name, they spell it Jacqueline and pronounce it JAC-A-LEEN. I've met quite a few "Jacquelines" but I've yet to meet another "Jacquelyn"!" Nov. 14, 2005:
"I love my name. I pronounce it Jack kwa lyn, or sometimes Jack lyn because lots of people seem to have trouble understanding the ýQueý. Several of my friends realized that they had been leaving out the Que and now that has become my nickname since I won't let anyone call me Jackie. I've met a bunch of Jacqueline's but Jacquelyn seems to be much less common... I like it that way even though it means I never find any pencils, mugs, or other souvenirs with my name on them." Oct. 17, 2005:
"Everyone spells my name wrong. They spell it Jacqueline. My parents say that J-A-C-Q-U-E-L-Y-N is more unique. They also pronounce Jack Lyn but it's pronounced Jack kwa Lyn. I still love my name." Aug. 31, 2005:
"My names Jacquelyn I propnounce it Jack QW Lyn but mum likes to say it Jack Lyn. it also gets spelt wrong a lot as well as my nick name JAcky" Jul. 31, 2005:

"My name was Jennifer for an hour, but my mom changed it to Jacquelyn. I really wish she hadn't. Jacquelyn is a horrible-sounding name made up of two masculine sounds: Jack + Lynn. I absolutely despise it. I try to make myself like it, but I just can't. I don't like my nickname, Jackie, either. I don't want to be called Jac because it's so manly, but I don't have a good middle name either. Ann. Why can't I just be the Jenny I was meant to be?" Apr. 20, 2008:

"My name is Jacquelynn and i never really thought much of it as a kid. people would always tease me with names like jackie-chan, or jack-o-lantern. Nobody can ever spell it or pronounce it right (Jac-quel-lynn). I would prefer that i was called Jacquelynn but it really is a mouthful so people just call me Jacquie, which in my opinion doesn't really do justice to the real name, but i live with it. It is really cool to see all these comments and know that i'm not crazy! :)" Feb. 2, 2014:

"My name is also Jacquelyn and I do have problems with people misspelling my name but I've learned not to let it get to me. I hate being called Jacque but there are always people who will. For a nickname I prefer Jak or Jacq or Jaq lol all spelled differently depending on who is referring to me." Feb. 21, 2011:
"My name is Jacquelyn Jeannine. It's a very unique name...people always pronounce it like Jacqueline and I don't like it! they are 2 very different names! I've never had a lot of nicknames only Jackie and JJ by my father. Some people call me Jack and I didn't like it before but now i think i'm going to use it =]" Sep. 12, 2009:
"My name is Jacquelyn Grace too! I usually go by Jacqui though. Since my last name starts with an "O" I get referred to as Jacqui-O a lot, but I love that because Jacqueline Onasis is basically my idol. The little girl I babysit thinks that my real name is Jack-o-lantern, but it's not. I used to mind when people spelled my name wrong, but now I've just gotten used to it, and laugh at all the varying ways I see it spelled. It's a beautiful name. I love it! :)" Aug. 31, 2009:

"My name is Jacquelyn, but I've always have been called jackie. It is constantly spelled (Jacqueline) or said wrong( pronounced Jaclyn). Its frustrating.. so i don't even go by my beautiful first name because it is a mouthful for some.. so Jackie it is." Nov. 24, 2008:
"My name is Jacquelyn too. My whole family calls me Jac though for short. I HATE when people call me Jackie, I dont really know why I just do for some reason. My name gets misspelled a whole lot. I have got Jaclyn, Jacqueline, and even Jacqlyn. I dont really like my name but I have grown to sort of like it also. My mom also hates when people call me jack-lyn she is like your name is NOT jack-lyn its jac-qa-lyn, haha like she really expresses the Q U E in my name." Sep. 22, 2008:
"I, too, am called Jacquelyn, and went through a phase when I was a child of not liking my name, and preferring to be called by my middle name, Amanda (which nobody ever did!. However, as I ahve becmoe older I have grown to love and cherish my name - alhough like some of the other Jacquelyns out there I get fed up of other people not speiing it right - to the extent that I changed it to Jacquie when I was a teenager - but guess what? They STILL don't spell it right!!! Does it matter though? I know who I am, even if others appear not to!" Apr. 22, 2008:

"I love my name- Jacquelyn, but hate the fact that I have had to spell it for people all my life. Even teachers when I first started school used to cross it out and write Jacqueline on my books! For all of my adult life, I have adopted the very much shortened Jac instead.
My kids have very traditional names, with no variation in the spelling to ensure that they do not have to endure the same!" Feb. 10, 2008:
"My name is Jacquelyn and it does get pronounce incorrectly sometimes but it is the abbreviation Jacque that gets mispronounce frequently. I don't meet very many people with my name and in elementary school I was the only Jacquelyn in any grade (k-6)." Dec. 26, 2007:

"Jacquelyn is a great name. It is often shorten in a friendly manner to "Jacq" but the full name itself is royal. It has the strength of a man's name and the elegance of a queen.

Yet all very nice people." Jan. 31, 2007:
"Well my name is jacquelyn and i really love this name cos it makes some girls who think they are too intelligent to look stupid cos they can't pronounce it right.
