"My name is Imelda, pronounced with a short "I". My nickname is Milly. When I started going to first grade in a Catholic school, the nun made me use Imelda because she said it is a saint's name. Saint Imelda is the patron saint of First Holy Communion. Milly is the name I have answered to for many years now. By the way, I had no middle name to fall back on." Aug. 20, 2016:

"I ALWAYS have to spell my name for people. This wasn't so bad, but now I have to spell my last name, Rivera (how hard is it?) and my street's name. Seriously. Also, people sometimes say Amelia, even though my name tag clearly has a 'd' in my name." Jul. 24, 2006:
