Not at all. My birth name was Drisana. I changed my name to what was my nickname when I reached 21 years of age.

I’ve never met anyone that has spelled & pronounced my name the same way.  (My pronunciation is not that crazy – a lot of foreigners get it right first try, it’s just Americans that assume.)  It’s not on the top 40 list.  I like it that way.  🙂

My name was #77 in populatiry the year I was born. I’ve met two others with my name. I like having a name different from most people, especially since my last name is super common.

The one annoying thing is that my coworker who sits on the other side of my divider knows someone with my name and is always on the phone with that person. I can’t help but evesdrop since he’s always using my name lol.

Interesting,  Lauren was number 24 in 1983 BUT I know FAR more Laurens than the top twenty names (there are FIVE of us at my job now,  talk about confusing).  Nicole / Tiffany / Crystal and Erin all rank higher but I didn’t know anyone growing up with those names… maybe it is a regional thing?

Mine was in the top five the year I was born and all other years during the 1980s. Apparently it was so popular because of a pop culture reference; my parents, who don’t follow pop culture, thought it was a very unusual name. Ha.

The “unusual” names I’ve liked for future girls (Ava, Olivia, Isabel) have also gotten very popular lately. Boo on that.

My name was #40 the year I was born, but I’ve known tons of other people with my same name growing up.  I remember there were 3 of us out of 20 girls at girl scout camp one year with the same name!
