my name is Arianne and I am 15 y/o. In grade school I hated my name because it was terribly uncommon and no one knew how to spell it or pronounce it. It was often mistaked for Ariana, Ariane (with one "n"), and even Arron! I have never found one of those cute custom name necklaces. It was just today when I found the song "Arianne" by Johnny Mathis when I realized that my name sounded kind of romantic and I am a little bit more accepting of it.
My name is Arianne as well. I am 16. Throughout my school years at the start I didn't enjoy my name at all, mostly because nobody had it. but gradually I became to realize in my later middle school years that uniqueness is good!& I really love my name. I have always been given complements by strangers, teachers, family & friends saying my name was beautiful & it boosted the confidence I had in my name. Although my name was always being pronounced differently like: Adrian, Adrianna, Arianna, I really don't mind when thy mispronounce it..but it gets really annoying.. Although the name people misinterpreted my name for on my soccer team, I don't mind. It was Ariel.
