I have only ever met one other Rhiannon, in England. I love my name!" Dec. 2, 2015:

"My name is Rhiannon, i'm 16, and people ALWAYS mispronounce my name. To avoid being called Rhianna, I go by the nick name Rhia, but i so badly want people to call me Rhiannon, because it is who I am. I have never met another Rhiannon before. I've been called Rina, Rihanna, Brianna, Anna, and my mums side of the family that can pronounce my name add a southern twist (re-on-un). It took my best friend almost 3 months to correctly learn my name, so she still calls me R sometimes. Im so glad I don't have a super common name like Ashley or Natalie." Nov. 20, 2014:
"My name is also Rhiannon but I have the nickname Rio. I got used to people asking me how to spell it quite quickly. But my nickname spelling is what gets on my nerves. Some people spell it with a "h" which is annoying. My nickname is three letters and two of them are vowels so it should be easy enough. But I like my name all the same" Nov. 6, 2014:
"This is my name, I've never met anyone with it. I love it now so much, so unique. x" Sep. 30, 2014:

So they made a compromise and named me Rhiannon Lily. And it's not difficult at all to pronounce. People just need to make an effort. It's pronounced: REE-Ann_in. See, not difficult at all." May. 31, 2014:
"My name is Rhiannon, when I was small I wanted to change it and I hated the name mainly because of the fact nobody knew how to spell or pronounce it! But I'm 13 now and I love the name!! I think its unique and quite beautiful. A lot of people know its meaning as queen or goddess but its actually horse goddess. That works out fine for me because I absolutely LOVE horses." Apr. 3, 2014:

"My name is Rhiannon and I love it. People think it sounds pretty and I like the welsh mythical meaning of it. Although, I get a lot of people who call me Rhianna like the singer Riana (i think that is how you spell it) my main nick name is Anne. My mom actually didn't get the idea from the song, oddly enough." Jan. 29, 2011:
"My middle name is Rhiannon. It was supposed to be my first name but my mom didn't like that it ment "Goddess." My daddy loved the song "Rhiannon" and I grew up listening to Stevie Nicks singing it. It's still my favorite song! When I get married, I am going to name my first daughter Rhiannon!" May. 29, 2010:
"My name is Rhiannon. I love it! My Daddy named me it because he heard the Fleetwood Mac song. Then, I found out about the mythical meaning (great queen or goddess) and the story behind the name, and I think parts of it actually relates to me. People often pronounce my name wrong, so I usually spell it for them (even when I was a baby).

My daughter has a classmate--same name and spelling--in her preschool class. I couldn't believe it. While I am familiar with the Fleetwood Mac song, many of today's other parents are not.

"I'm thirteen in the u.s in Arkansas. I've never met another person named Rhiannon, and when I was little I always wanted to change it. When I was in third grade we did a name research project on our names and I learned what Rhiannon really means. Now I'm proud to be named after a beautiful, forgiving, patient goddess who ruled with compassion. If you haven't looked up Rhiannon yet, you need to. It's a very interesting story and it'll make you even prouder of your name." Mar. 9, 2013:
