Personal experiences with the name Venetia: | Edit

My name is Venetia and one thing's for sure- it gets mispronounced/ mispelt A LOT! I have always found it hard to introduce myself to people as they have to get me to repeat it slowly, or they simply forget it and ask me again later! Apart from those little hiccups, once people get it- they really like it :-) I would never change my name as I feel different and unique! Over here in England people seem to think it's rather sophisticated and elegant and I certain don't complain ;-P
