Personal experiences with the name Courey: | Edit

This is my name. I have never come across anyone else with the same spelling. There is little history with the spelling, other than the fact that my mother wanted to avoid an "i" in the name so I wouldn't draw a heart over it later in life. I love the unique spelling, but get very frustrated that people often call me "Courtney."
