"I am an Adrienne and I love it. I am from the UK and know no other Adrienne's, very rare over here. I get frustrated at how many people get it wrong though. It isnt that hard a name. though a lot of people have mentioned most Adrienne's have dark brown hair, but I am a blondie." Aug. 23, 2016:
"I named my daughter Adrienne Claire. I had gone to h.s. with an Adrienne, and I loved her name and the spelling. I like that it's not too common but sounds classy, beautiful, and ooooh-la-la! My Adrienne has very dark hair." May. 17, 2016:
"I was born in the early 80s. I was named after my great-aunt who was French. My parents were looking for a soft sounding name since I was a very small baby, and thought it fit the bill. Same issues as most commentators: rocky comments, never anything with my name on it as a kid, people called me Andrea, everyone spells it wrong. There were two guys in my high school named 'Adrian' but I didn't meet another 'Adrienne' until I was about 25. Lately I see a lot of baby girls being named 'Adrian'- I hope that 'Adrienne' doesn't become obsolete, because I love our spelling." Apr. 24, 2016:
"Love it. In fact, this is the name I gave my daughter who is a dark haired beauty with lovely grey eyes. My father's family lived near the Adriatic Sea when he was young and hence the name always intrigued me. It is unique, different, and elegant. However, the cons are that it is difficult for her to find non-customized personalized items, it is sometimes mispronounced as Adrianne, and I underestimated the "Yo Adrienne" comments that would assail her. It is a beautiful name." Oct. 5, 2015:
"I hated it as a kid, and hated that i could never find it on a cup or keychain (and i still look and have yet to be successful). but i like its uniquness and great name for both a child and adult. i'm blonde, blue eyed and as english as you can get but my dad liked its originality." Sep. 29, 2015:
"I am 59 years old and my name is Adrienne..it has been mispronounced more than I can count. I wanted to be a Cathy or Lisa or Debbie when I was younger but as I grew older I learned I am unique...and how many of us have heard Yo Adrienne...lol" May. 30, 2015:
"I like my name and yes people spell it like he boys name Adrian and also call you adrianna or Andrea my friends and family have shortened it to AJ or Ado" Sep. 15, 2014:
"This is my name and I've grown to love it.
Very unique, but not in a trendy way. It's more classic, elegant, and refined. It's an older French name.
When I was little, I didn't like it because I never knew any other people with that name. But it's nice to have a name that is a bit rare. I am often told my name is beautiful." Jul. 6, 2014:
"It has been my name for 45 years and I like it. I didn't as a child, but as an adult it is good - classy, with a bit of an edge. I was told once that all Adrienne's are attractive...course he might have been hitting on me." Jul. 25, 2013:

"My name is Adrienne too...and I'm a brunette! I never realized it until I read your post, but the Adrienne's I know are brunettes too!
Same with me, I hated it, but now I love it. Never get sick of the "Yo, Adrienne" jokes (from Rocky). I swore, after my mother named me that, that I would name my daughter something simple...wrong, I named her "Tierany". haha" Jul. 16, 2007:
"My name is Adrienne. When I was little I didn't like it, but I've grown to love my name. It sounds royal to me. I rarely meet people with my name, but funny thing is, when I do, most of the time they are brunettes (like myself!)" Jun. 6, 2007:

"I love my name but people often mispronounce it. They will say 'Adrianne' or make the A short, like Ah-drienne. I hear "Yo, Adrienne!" all the time but I know if I hear someone yell my name they mean me 'cause there aren't 1000 of us walking around with that name." Nov. 7, 2006:
"I love having this name. It's not so uncommon that it seems outlandish, but it is still unique and sophisticated. People often spell it the male way, that gets annoying. And a lot of people like to cal lme "Adrianna" or "Adrianne". That gets on my nerves too, but I still love having this name." Jul. 12, 2006:
"My name was always misspelled or mispronounced. Very frustrating that I'd even get called Andrea. Lots of Yo,Adrienne. But, I do like my name and that it's unique." May. 8, 2006:
"I do not meet many people with this name. People often mispell it or call me Angela or Andrea. I do get a lot of rocky's "Yo Adrienne", but I find that more amusing than annoying. Most people call me Adge or Adgey for short" May. 2, 2006:
"Most people get the spelling wrong. Variations are;
You can never get enough of "YO ADRIENNE"
But it is unique and nice that you don't have to go by last names in your group pf friends because everyones name is Adrienne." Nov. 1, 2005:
