Personal experiences with the name Blakelyn

Inspired by "Jaclyn Smith"

My name is Blakelyn, and ever since I can remember, no one has ever said my name right, or spelled it right, or had a clue why my parents would name me such. However, no one I have ever met has ever heard of this name, so I was the "original baby name" in my home town, and everywhere I have ever traveled.
