  • "my name is kelli, and I'm 14. when I was younger I always wished my name was spelled with a y instead, but the spelling has grown on me. I've heard a couple people online saying it looks and sounds trailer trashy but I think it's more fresh. it's artsy and a cute way to spell a name. plus, great conversation starter! I always get lots of compliments on it, but I really can't stand when people spell it wrong. I have trouble confronting them about it so I never say anything and it's just frustrating. I'm very Irish and italian also (although I live in America) so my last and middle name flow well with my first. I've heard Kelli's have "bad luck" also but I feel like it's just a myth. I believe in my life so far I've had my fair share of bad luck, naturally. but also I've had lots of good luck, just like anyone else. if you even believe in luck, which I'm not even sure I do."
