Personal experiences with the name Aries: | Edit

My name happens to be Aries and I absolutely love it. Though my name is often confused with Ares as in the greek war god. And strangers usually spell my name Ares. The truth is Im 13 and I wanted to share how fun it is to amuse my friends with all the different meanings of this name. I love how the name links to the zodiac sign, the constellation, and how it is confused with Ares (greek war god). The cool thing is that I love greek mythology. And to be clear it can be a girl and boy name. Im a girl.
