"My name is Bernadette's I was named after my great grandma Bernadine. I love my name some people call me Bernie, Burnout, Bern,but I still live my name since I watched St. Bernadette. I also like St. Bernadette am my parent's first born and born on the 7th of a month not going to tell anyone what month to much info." Mar. 28, 2020:
"I've got this name and it's never given me any trouble for teasing anyway - well, I had a bad surname.
However, at least in Australia, a lot of people have a habit of going "Can I call you Bernie?" which I hated - I'd advise that anyone named Bernadette gets used to telling people that they don't like nicknames or come up with a substitute one (mine was Bena). Unless you like Bernie... which is cool too.
Overall, I like my name." Dec. 6, 2013:

"This is my middle name, which was my grandmother's name. I love it!" Dec. 15, 2008:
"My name is Bernadette and I love it now. Growing up, I hated it because kids were cruel and made fun of my name. "bern a joint, bernardo, bernadetto, bern the fern, bernie mac, etc." The list went on. But now, at the age of 30, I am so glad I don't have some common name. My friends call me Bern, B, or BB, which is fine, but I can't stand Bernie. I always get comments on what a beautiful and UNIQUE name I have. People say they never forget me because of my name. I always get comments that I'm lucky I don't have a generic popular name like jennifer, michelle, or katherine." Mar. 16, 2008:
"My name is "just" Berna. My mom got it from St. Bernadette, Catholic name. I like it alot b/c no one I know so far has that exact spelling. People 99% of the time do not know how to spell or pronounce my name or if it is a girl or boy's name. Once I asociate it with Bernadette they get it. I don't like to do that b/c I end up being called Bernadette. Also if I don't compare my name with Bernadette, I immediately get called Verna, which I dislike that name even more than Bernadette. I'm glad my name is Berna. I also believe when you give your child a name for example like mine, have that name (spelling) on their birth certificate instead of changing the spelling b/c if they should get older and be in an occupation (attorney/or dr.)some think it does not look professional to have Berna on a name plate but should be Bernadette. Spell their name "One" way the way you want and will be calling them by.
Talked your ear off. Have a good one." Jun. 18, 2006:
