Personal experiences with the name Marianna: | Edit

This is my name, named after my mother. It is pronounced Mary-Ann-ah. Growing up, I went by Mari (pronounced Mary) and hated that it was always misspelled, mispronounced, or too similar to Mary which was all too common. I also hated all of the sing songs that were sang to me. I later started going strictly by Marianna which I much prefer as it is unique and I think is quite pretty and receive many compliments on. Some people pronounce it Mary-on-ah which is also pretty so I don't mind or bother to correct them. Most people don't pay enough attention and I am often called MaryAnn and Maria (I have a huge peeve about spelling names incorrectly so this always irks me).
