  • "My name is Candida. Most people mispronounce it. The only people who get it right are people who are old enough to remember the song (1970, Dawn) or anyone in the Medical profession. From the latter I usually get a few giggles. Overall I enjoy having an unusual name." Sep. 14, 2006: Report as inappropriate
