Comments and insights on the name Stefani: | Edit

My name is Stefani. I absolutely hate it. No one can spell it even if you tell them letter by letter they still insist on adding an e on the end or putting pf what is pf anyways its so utterly frustrating. No one can pronounce it they assume its like Gwen Stefani when its Stephanie. People dont understand why you get so annoyed when they say and or spell it wrong. I will never be a fan of this name for the sheer frustration it brings with it. My middle name is Elizabeth I like that so much better.

I love this name SO much!!! I think the spelling is much prettier than the traditional "Stephanie"... though it's pretty sad to hear all the downsides that come with this beautiful name :(

Personal experiences with the name Stefani: | Edit

My name is Stefani. As a kid, I loved my name, but as I've gotten older some of the shine has worn off. It's pronounced like Stephanie, but it is often mispronounced like Stef-awny. Also, it often gets misspelled by people who assume it's spelled Stephanie. I feel like I constantly have to clarify my name's spelling to people. That said, I like that this name seems like a simpler spelling than the traditional name. I also like that I don't know anyone else with this exact name. So basically, I'm on the fence about my own name.
