"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:
"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:
"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:
"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:
"Hi My name is Hilary with one l and i like my name!" Feb. 2, 2008:
"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:
"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:
"my name is hilary, and i love it because it is quite unusual in australia. it's great for nicknames too!" Sep. 9, 2007:

"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:
"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..."

"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:
"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:
