Younger sisters name. She loves it.
My name is Una and I love my name. My parents named all of their children very unique names and we always get complemented on them. I like to think that my name represents who I am, individual, unique and different. I think my name is a nice change from common names like Emma, Olivia, Grace etc. (not that I don't like those names, they are all gorgeous). All in all, I love my name and I love that it sets me apart from others.
