I have had many nicknames and I never had a problem with any of them. My husband and I have decided to name our next child (if a girl) Kelly but will spell it differently." (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left May 15, 2012: "My name is Kelly Ann. I am 21. Before I was born my parents were going to name me Kimberly. After I was born with a full head of thick red-orange hair, my grandmother told my parents I looked like a Kelly and they agreed. I have had a lot of people tell me I have a nice name but surprisingly my name has been spelled incorrectly by many people, including teachers." (Report as inappropriate)

I grew up in a small town and went to school with 7 Kelly's who were all my friends. Most people spell my name correctly but sometimes they think it ends in "i or ie" which doesn't matter to me much because I love it no matter how it's spelled." (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Jan 16, 2011: "I'm Kelly, too! I'm 20 years old. My middle name is Ann. My parents couldn't decide on a name for me when I was born (I surprised them by coming 3 months early), and they saw someone in a magazine with our last name and the first name Kelly, and they thought it sounded nice, so here I am! :) I like my name. I only know two or three other people named Kelly. All spelled this way. Only one is my age. I like having a name that is common enough that people know how to say and spell it, but not so common that there is always someone with the same name as me in class." (Report as inappropriate)
Comment left Jan 09, 2011: "Hey. My Name Is Kelly Lynn Sawyer. I Am 16 Years Old. When I Was Younger I Used To Want To Change My Name But Now I'm In Love With It. Most People Call Me "Kellz" Or "KellyLynnBaybee." The Only Things I Don't Like About My Name Is That It Rhymes With "Smelly." So People Call My Smelly Kelly Or Kell Bell. I've Met Like One Person That Spells It "Kelly". One Person Who Spells It "Kellie". One Person Who Spells It "Kellie" And One Person Who Spells It "Kelli". But I Think The Name "Kelly" Is Very Unique No Matter How It's Spelled. My Grandma Named Me "Kelly" Because My Mom Couldn't Think Of A Name That Sounds Good With "Lynn" So Here I Am As "Kelly Lynn" Most People Spell It With "ie" And I Tell Them That My Name Is Spelled The "Easy Way" Then They Look At Me Like "Just A "Y" And I'm Like "Yup." So All Kelly's Rule Lol.
Kelly Lynn!" (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Apr 18, 2010: "Greetings, my name is Kelly Louise Broady and im thankful to have my name and my grandmother's name as my middle name. She pasted last year on 10-31-09. I use to dislike it as a child because I wanted to be different and unique but I realized as I got older, I was different and unique without my name being changed. I was spiritually blessed and I was a gift from GOD. I was called Kelly, Kelly Kel, Kel and Kelly Belly as I grew up and attended college. I love the purpose of my name "WARRIOR" It fits my life perfectly. I am now called " WARRIOR IN CHRIST" I was built to fight battles for the Lord. Im a Prayer WARRIOR" Be Thankful. I love all of you." (Report as inappropriate)
