Personal experiences with the name Reva

This is my name and I absolutely love it! I have probably the longest name ever (Reva Aleksandrine Verouska Two-last-names)so this short first name is a life saver. People call me Evie most of the time. The only thing is a lot of people don't hear the R and call me Eva, which is a much more common name. Also, if people see my name written, they'll often pronounce it Revva (with the short e sound like in bed rather than the long e sound like in seed). All in all, I really love my name and the nicknames. It's an easy name to spell and pronounce and not too common.
