    Being a Kelly, I was constantly called Smelly. As a 5 year old, it bugged me.

    I have a unique name but it is a really simple one and I never got made fun of. I always liked my name! It doesn’t really rhyme with anything, either–maybe that helps 🙂

    I have a “unique” name in Canada/America but fairly common in Lebanon (where I am from) I used to be called A-Budweiser (A-do you want a beer?) because half of my name is pronounced “beer” to nonarabic speaking people.

    I never got picked on for my name. BUT people have always assumed I’m male based on my name. I guess it’s not a huge deal, but I really don’t like that aspect of my name.
