    Default Have you ever seen your name mentioned/discussed on BH?

    I just realised that in all the BH threads about names or mentions of name in general I have never seen my name. I feel a bit devo actually - maybe I have a wierd name (its c.a.r.a)

    so what about you?

    I like it but I don't think I have ever seen mine either... Well, I have, but not the spelling. It's Kristi-Lee (but everyone just calls me Krissi or Kristi). Maybe I just haven't looked hard enough lol

    Yep, all the time as it's uber popular with little girls now (Alice) when I was growing up I was the only one I knew, but now I actually know quite a few in their 20's and 30's so I guess it's always been popular. I'venever heard anyone say they hate it, either. If you hate it (generic you) tell me I won't be offended, it'd be interested to see if anyone doesn't like it.

    No, maybe I should start a thread about it to see what people say??

    Nah...it's a.n.n.e so pretty boring and probably just used as one of those family middle names.

    Nope, I've never seen mine. But then, it is a bit of a 70s/80s name (I was born in 1981) so I'd be very surprised to meet a baby now with it!!!!

    Nope because:

    a) it is seriously old fashioned, and

    b) it is not one of the 'hip' old fashioned names like Ruby or Lily ... It is not remotely pretty.

    No idea what my parents were thinking!! How did they know they were having an 87 year old?
