Personal experiences with the name Carla

This is my name, I like it because it isn't very common, and because I'm named after my dear and wonderful father, Carlos. But the tyranny of the "K" has altered my quality of life. The past fifteen years, whenever I give my name for paperwork purposes, I have to say "Carla with a C." Drives me nuts.

This was my sisters name before she passed away at the age of 3 1/2. It suited her well and was a lovely kids name which I think would have grown up nicely along with her had she had the chance to do so.
