- Comments and insights on the name Kiersten
My daughter is named Kiersten and we love it and she loves it. She is the only Kiersten that anybody every knows!
I agree with the top commenter^ that people only me with my unique name. And even though my name is spelled Kirsten and said Ker-sten. Some people pronounce it this way Kier-sten which I'm okay with it too. Just wanted to share that all these variations and pronunciations are unique and great names anyway.
- Personal experiences with the name Kiersten
My name is Kiersten, and I'm very happy with it. The only downside is that tons of people can't seem to pronounce it (I say it keer-sten), even when I just said it, or to spell it, even when they've already seen it in writing. I respond to anything that sounds even remotely like my name, even Tristan. (I've never actually been called Tristan, but I turn around when people say it, because it sounds so much like Kristen, which I get frequently). And people pronounce and spell it in such a variety of ways (I've had people put A's and O's in my name before... ???) that I'm not sure spelling it Kirsten or pronouncing it Ker-sten (which are slightly more common) would alleviate the problem very much. On the plus side, there's this awesome instant connection anytime I meet someone with my name (or something close to it; I've met several Kirstens, but never another Kiersten), which I don't think you get with a lot of other names!
