- Comments and insights on the name Britney
I think almost every Britney I know is a rebel or a brat but is very pretty. I know though, that names do not have to do with that, but I am just saying what I know.
- Personal experiences with the name Britney
I'm a Britney and most Britney's are brats yet really fun to be with. They are kind hearted and full of life.
I'm a Britney as well, I have most problems with people spelling my name correctly, I graduated with at least 5 other Britney's (all different spellings) it can get quite irritating. but I do like my name. When I was little playing hide and seek my mom was calling out "Brit where are you?" one time she didnt and I yelled "Dit where are you?" and now that has stuck I have been Dit or Dittie ever since.
My name is Britney. It's a rare occasion when people spell my name right, and it's pretty common for a lot of girls my age (17ish).
