Personal experiences with the name Ivana: | Edit

My Baby sister's name is Ivana, she goes by Ivy (she's 7). Someone called her 'Iguana' once and now she tells people that she's Ivy the Iguana. My parents nicknamed her Ivy because she 'crept up on them' (after 4 daughters they didn't plan another, but they always wanted more kids, just were pressured a bit in to stopping by the family.) So Ivy was a surprise and she loves it.
