Hi, I'm Shandi. I'm happy with my name. I have the same problem as the other Shandi wrote. People are always calling me Sandy or mixing my name up somehow. I tell them the same thing she does..It's LIKE Sandy, but with a "H" & and a "Y". Even then you have to repeat yourself. When I spell it to them they still get the "I" wrong & write it with a "Y" anyway. Only 5 of my teachers ever got my name right. I've gotten used to people getting it wrong my entire life so it doesn't bother me anymore.
- Nicknames for Shandi: | Edit
Our adopted daughter who is now 9 1/2 already had the name Shandi & we thought it was pretty, different & unusual so we kept her name. I sometimes call her "Shan" for short, although I am the ONLY one who does so. She says she likes that nickname so I'm sticking with it!
