In Response to Do you like your name?

My name is Kiersten. I know that for the majority of my life I've really loved my name, though for a short time when I moved to a new country I wanted to go by my middle name, Lainey...because it was easier to pronounce. I ended up deciding against that, because there is/was just something about my name.

I've gone through what feels like a million mispronounciations of my name: Kristen, Christina, Kristiana, Christian, Kristy, Christine, Kirsty, Kirsten...etc. At first I hated the fact that I was constantly having to correct teachers, doctors, government workers, military friends...but once I hit about middle school age, it started to get a little funny with teachers...I would be a bit of an ass and not respond if they pronounced it wrong (of course I would tell them that there wasn't a Kristen, or what have you, in the class, but there was a Kiersten, after a while). When I turned eighteen, I realized that when people called and mispronounced my name it probably meant that they were people calling to get me to take surveys or try new items...or other such things. It also allowed me to realize who actually cared about me if they kept mispronouncing my name, even after being told.

My name feels like mine and I met more in Germany than I have in the states, which I really like...makes it easier for people to remember me...though harder to blend into the crowd. I don't know why my parents picked my name, though I wish I did...I feel like it blends well with my maiden name...though perhaps not so well with my new last name, haha.

In Response to Sister for Cora

If you were willing to nix Marie (provided it doesn't have meaning behind it) you could use the name Josephine as a middle to get both the names :) Besides that, my vote is for Ada. I like how it sounds with Cora and I don't believe it's overly matchy.
