"My name is Ericka and I LOVE it! It's so unique in spelling and I sort of like the boldness feeling of the name. People say it's a very common name until you add something special to it. For example, my name.I also like how people spell it wrong because that is how I found my best friend on Valentines Day when he was trying to make a card for me because (even though we didn't talk much) he liked me."

"My name is also Ericka! I'm 18 and I used to HATE that I would have to tell people it had both a 'c' and a 'K' but now I play it off when I get odd looks and say its because I am special XD. I love that it is so different than all those other plain Erika's and Erica's. eriCKa is the only way to go!" Feb. 22, 2011:
"I am 29 and called Ericka and although I have had to say 'with a C and a K!' all my life, I love the spelling,looks far nicer than just with one or the other & I always get complimented on it and the way it's spelt. Must admit though, I hated it until in my teens!!" Mar. 31, 2010:
"My name is Ericka, and i like the fact it is unique. I am in the 8th grade and just last year i found out that the school system misspelled my name with a "c" instead of both a "c" and a "k". I was used to and expected to come in the first day (of school) and my name be spelled wrong. Til last year when my Science teacher said that it was spelled "Erica" on the role, so a stupid mistake made my teachers ,when i was younger, think i was crazy or stupid" Mar. 4, 2010:
"heey. my name is ericka. im in the ninth grade. just about everyone that tries and spells my name gets it right. i love it becaseu it signifies that we 'erickas' are unique and different and it is a great way to be reminded of it. there is definitly no rite or wrong way to spell ur name."

"My oldest daughter is named Aricka which is close to Ericka and pronounced the same. It's a very nice name. My daughter loves her name and the unusual spelling." Apr. 13, 2009:
"This is my daughter's name. She hates it only because people almost always misspell it. Even now when she is in her 20's it annoys her that she cannot get an "off-the-shelf" personalized nameplate, stationary, etc. with her name spelling." Nov. 18, 2007:
"My name is Ericka. I'm in 8th grade and everyone last year, even my Science teacher said it was spelled with only a "c". The that teacher got it right, but soon after this year he started to spell it with a "k" only. I mean what is wrong with him. Well, now most people get it right! From being in this school system from Kindergarten to now! Well, they are weird and I think more people need to stop naming their kids Ashley, because we have 3 Ashley in my class. That is annoying!!! Talk to you later!!!" Oct. 11, 2007:

"I've had the name "Ericka" for 30 years now and love it. Even though it is often spelled wrong initially, people make comment on how pretty it looks with both the "c" and the "k". I love the name and how it sets me appart from the rest!" Jul. 9, 2010:
"Use Erica unless you want your kid to be annoyed forever, it the real way to spell it." Dec. 13, 2008:
"My name is Ericka, and I've found the most common mistake people make is the spelling. When I say, "My name is Ericka" people reply with, "How do you spell that?" This shows that they obviously know there are multiple spellings. I reply, "With a C and and K," yet they always spell it Erika. I guess people don't expect the double letters, so they hear "Not a C but a K." I don't know. That's all I can come up with considering the constant Erika mis-spelling." Feb. 17, 2006:
