My first name is not common. I love my name, always have. I hate being called Angela, Angie or April!

My name is Michelle and growing up there was at least one other girl in my class with the same name.. Not sure if it is popular anymore these days but I like my name. :)

Well my birth name was Loretta so I guess that wasn't all that common just old fashioned. 3 years ago I changed it to Lori which I guess is quite common. I hated Loretta and I love Lori. I make a much better Lori:)

I've got a old old name.  I was named after my dads sis in law.....who is 17 years older than my dad!!  Beverly.  I didn't like it.  But I decided when i was a teen that it could have been worse, i could have been named after Grams.  Edna.  Ew.  I wanted something more popular :)

Very common. Especially for my generation. Yes, I like it. It has a lot of nickname options. I choose to go by my full name, though.

My name is not very common. I did not know anyone who had the same name and it was not until my early teens while visiting in the city I heard someone call out to someone with the same name but that is about it.

I like my name.

It's kind of common, but I like my name.  My daddy gave it to me.
