"I love my name! It's so unique compared to most girl names. I love the spelling with a "y"....it just looks so much better than with an "I" or and "a". I'm not sure why people hate gender-neutral names. Everyone that I meet loves the spelling and uniqueness of my name. I'm thinking of passing my name down to my daughter some day!" Apr. 13, 2020:
