  • "Hi, my name is Hilary also :) I love my name it's so simple yet elegant and powerful. I use to think it was an old name but now I love it." Apr. 28, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is 'Hillary' spelled with two L's and I get teased sometimes because of Mrs. Clinton. However, I really like my name. It sounds like a name someone like myself would have. Its funny and cheerful but also serious and proud. I am just happy I wasn't named Ashley." Nov. 8, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am Hilary with one L because I am from Ireland. The female version of Hilary in Ireland has one L, the male version has 2. Who know's why Hillary Clinton spells it with 2 L's , but sure I guess she is half man. I love my name. I have only met a couple of people in my life with the name so I feel unique. A lot of people spell my name with 2 L's because I am working in the US, but it doesn't bother me." Aug. 3, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "my name is hilary and i love it! its unique, individual and i heard it means cheerful - which i am! its not too popular but still heard of - Hilary duff and hilary swank! i love it" Jan. 10, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi My name is Hilary with one l and i like my name!" Feb. 2, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Hilary, with one L. I'd say my name is great. Lots of people who are fans of Hilary Duff like my name - lol obviously. My friends call me Hilly and Hil. I also love my name because it's sinominous for "hilarious", which that is definitely what I am. I just love my name so much - it isn't that common. I'm the only Hilary I know. In my school, in my neighborhood and everything! Some of my teachers spell it with two Ls, which I hate that spelling (no offense to anyone who spells it like that), but over all I just simply think my name is awesome. Thumbs up to all Hilarys." Dec. 27, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "It's my name and I like it. It's melodious in sound and has a very pleasant meaning. To me the spalling with 2 Ls ia incorrect, because "hilarity" and "hilarious" only have one L. The spelling Hillary is a surname. But since Hillary Clinton came along I sometimes get mine misspelled! I knew a Hilarie once and think that's a beautiful spelling. But the disadvantage would be constantly having to spell it for people." Dec. 22, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "my name is hilary, and i love it because it is quite unusual in australia. it's great for nicknames too!" Sep. 9, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Hilary, she's Hilarious - so the name really fits :)" Jan. 11, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "loads of people spell it wrong but I still like my name. I prefer having a name that isn't too common, but still unusual." Aug. 17, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Hilary. People frequently spell it with two "LL"s it used to bother me, but now I just deal with it. I was born in the 1970's, I haven't met too many other people with the name Hilary, but MOST people in the world have heard of Hillary Clinton, so associate the name with her - unfortunately or fortunately..."

  • "My name is Hilary, at first I didn?t like it because when my name would be said at school, someone would always say Hillary Clinton, even though my parents got the idea from Hilary Duff. I like my name now, cause it?s unique and it means cheerful and almost spells out hilarious. There will always be people who make fun of you, you just gotta learn how you deal with them." Dec. 3, 2021: Report as inappropriate

  • "I spell my name Hilary and i am 22. I like my name, however i do get called Hillary Clinton alot and whenever i have to give my name to people i always have to spell it out. I knew some other Hilary's but i was the only one with that spelling. Through the years i have got some silly spellings from people and its kind of aggravating at first then you get used to it." Sep. 1, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My sister's name is Hilary, and people constantly spell it with 2 L's. Even her piano teacher which she's had for years and years! Its a family name that came from roughly the 1930's." Aug. 24, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "The only problem with the name Hilary is that most people now a days associate that name with the one of Hilary Duff or Hillary Clinton which could put your child under pressure to be famous popular and pretty like them." Oct. 29, 2006: Report as inappropriate
