"Growing up I always wished I had a different more interesting name- everyone wants something they don't have. When I am out every so often I hear it and think someone is calling my name. My name is not as common as others and now I am 26 and I appreciate my name as it is. It is unique now with new names in popularity." Jan. 30, 2020:
"I love the name Emily so much, it's common for a very good reason, Emily is the most beautiful name in the world. I'd even go so far to say the name Emily is the most beautiful sound in the world, or at least the most beautiful sound ever uttered by humans. Emily is literally the most beautiful name that could possibly exist. It's so melodic and fun to say, it makes you smile when you say it, it's the perfect female name. Old-fashioned yet modern, elegant yet strong, dainty yet makes its presence known, common yet timeless. Emily is the most beautiful name in the world and that's a fact. You will not change my mind on that. If your name is Emily, thank your parents, please, for giving you the most beautiful name that has ever and could ever exist." Oct. 4, 2019:
