  • "It's my daughter's name, but we spell it with a K. I often wish I had spelled it with a C. My daughter likes her name and says she thinks it's special because a lot of other people don't have her name. I hope she continues to feel this way. You're kind of taking a risk by giving your child a name that's as unique as this one is." May. 9, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name, now, because it is unique. I hated it growing up because it was so different and EVERYONE got it wrong at first. To this day, my name is mispelled and mispronounced on a regular basis, but I no longer mind. I just say, "My name is Carlyn, pronounced like "George Carlin." I often get compliments! Here's to all the "Carlyns" in the world!!" Jul. 28, 2009: Report as inappropriate

Yes, every time we have a substitute teacher all my friends look at me because it's often pronounced wrong. My last name is also quite strange, and I was voted "Most Unique Name" in the yearbook. But honestly, I would NEVER change my name. Everyone says it suits me well, and I agree." Dec. 1, 2013: Report as inappropriate
