- Personal experiences with the name Inez: | Edit
My middle name is Inez and I love it, especially since I have such a common first name (I go by my middle name). It's memorable and people don't often forget my name. Besides, it doesn't really sound like any other name, so it is never mixed up, whereas my first name sounds like a lot of other names. It's short, sweet, and spunky!
My middle name is also Inez and i love it and people do to. I have an unique name also so it just flows well together.
