Comments and insights on the name Deanna: | Edit

My mom's name is Deanna. I call her De sometimes. I like her name, its different.

I had a housemate with this name. It really suit her- but sometimes she would get impatient because it took people awhile to get her name right "Deandra?" "No."

Personal experiences with the name Deanna: | Edit

My name is DeAnna (spelled with a capital A please) and I love my name. I have only met two DeAnna's in my life so far and I'm 21 years old. As a child I got called DeAnna Banana...but I love my name anyway. When I was born I was nameless for three days until my mother heard DeAnna on TV. She capitalized the A because her middle name is Ann and I look exactly like her!

My name is also DeAnna, but only because my dad has a thing for having names with weird spellings, or just weird names in general. I have a twin sister by the name of MaKayla. Both with a capital letter.

My moms name is Deanna. Hers is not spelled with a capital A but it almost was. We call her De and when she was younger they used to call her De-De Bear.
