my name is Arianne and I am 15 y/o. In grade school I hated my name because it was terribly uncommon and no one knew how to spell it or pronounce it. It was often mistaked for Ariana, Ariane (with one "n"), and even Arron! I have never found one of those cute custom name necklaces. It was just today when I found the song "Arianne" by Johnny Mathis when I realized that my name sounded kind of romantic and I am a little bit more accepting of it.
