- Personal experiences with the name Kerri
My name is Kerri (born 1987); and although I NEVER get personalized souvenirs (haha)...I love it. I love the spelling, love that's simple with no shortened versions. Just Kerri. Most other people have positive reactions. I'm a red head, so I don't fit the 'meaning'...but it works! The only other Kerri I have met was also a red head.
