- Comments and insights on the name Kiersten: | Edit
My daughter is named Kiersten and we love it and she loves it. She is the only Kiersten that anybody every knows!
I agree with the top commenter^ that people only me with my unique name. And even though my name is spelled Kirsten and said Ker-sten. Some people pronounce it this way Kier-sten which I'm okay with it too. Just wanted to share that all these variations and pronunciations are unique and great names anyway.
- Personal experiences with the name Kiersten: | Edit
My name is Kiersten, and I'm very happy with it. The only downside is that tons of people can't seem to pronounce it (I say it keer-sten), even when I just said it, or to spell it, even when they've already seen it in writing. I respond to anything that sounds even remotely like my name, even Tristan. (I've never actually been called Tristan, but I turn around when people say it, because it sounds so much like Kristen, which I get frequently). And people pronounce and spell it in such a variety of ways (I've had people put A's and O's in my name before... ???) that I'm not sure spelling it Kirsten or pronouncing it Ker-sten (which are slightly more common) would alleviate the problem very much. On the plus side, there's this awesome instant connection anytime I meet someone with my name (or something close to it; I've met several Kirstens, but never another Kiersten), which I don't think you get with a lot of other names!
