- Personal experiences with the name Kiki: | Edit
The most common question I get is, "Is that your real name?" haha. "Really? What is it short for?" OR the statement... "I had a cat named, 'Kiki,' when I was little." Nice! (I guess?) haha ;)
I absolutely looooove my name. It is a great conversational starter - a lot of people ask me ^those questions and it leads to great conversations with people I would probably never would have talked to before. It is unique and people always remember me... which has been so great with networking in my professional life.
My middle name, Mae, is a generational name and it flows with Kiki really well. Some of the nicknames I have been given are: Keeks/Kiks, Kiki Dee, Kiwi (when I was in grade school), Ki^2 and Kikster.
I have even heard the meaning of my name in different languages.. like Filipino for instance... Kiki refers to a female's genitalia... When I heard this in High School, I laughed it off. Didn't let it bother me, because no one else here knew about it besides those from the Philippines.. and then it is just something to laugh about... not an insult.
Some people may think it is not a real name and it's 'juvenile'... but I have always loved my name :) And professionally, I have always been taken seriously and have been successful even with the name, Kiki. - to those who have doubts. ;)
My youngest sister's name is Kiki, short for Kaitlin. She is now 13 and still goes by Kiki and nobody seems to question it! She's extremely caring and generous. Great name (Although I do recommend Kaitlin and Kiki as a nickname)!!
