  • "My name is Tarryn and not too many people spell it with two R's. Yep, I do get called Karen or Tara alot, but who cares! I'd rather have that than constantly have to tell people which of the million Jens or Melissas I am. Anyway, I love that it has two r's cause it separates me from the more common forms of the name. I'm 26 and have never come across another person who spells it like me. Another variation is the typo on my birth certificate which is Tarron. I am named after my dad Aaron and my sister Teresa so I think that spelling is pretty cool even though it was a mistake, lol." Apr. 30, 2009: Report as inappropriate
