"It is my name and I love the rareness of it and its simplicity, which makes up for my last name. It is annoying to have to correct the spelling of it all the time, but I only do that on important things and let it go on other things." Mar. 23, 2010:
"Its nice having a different name, but its constantly getting misspelled. I've gotten to the point where I only correct people when its for something important, like a legal document. Otherwise, like a waiting line for a restaurant that takes my first name, I let them spell it however. My last name is no better, so I've learned to not care about it too much." Nov. 30, 2008:
