And I changed it. I am 22. My name used to be "Graysee'lynn Elspbeth"
Yes. It was spelled that way. I hated every second of it. By the time I hit middle school, I changed it on paper. When I turned 18 I finally switched it over to "Grace Elizabeth" or "Gracie" to my friends. Please for the love of god think about the name you choose. It's not just a cutesie name for a little baby that makes them unique. It's the name they have to carry with them into adulthood. It's the name they will put on application, paperwork, etc. it's a name they will have to grow up with.

My sister only goes by her middle name because she has a unique first name as well.
