My name was extremely unique when I was growing up. All my life, I have only ever known one other Anissa. I hated it. Nobody could ever pronounce it, spell it, or remember it. It was a constant PITA. I go by Ani (like Annie), but even with that, people question if it is actually pronounced that way, and I'm still struggling to correct people with my name.

I cringe when I hear people say they want to give their kids "different" names, or they want to give their kids regular names, but then spell it differently. I totally understand wanting to stear away from trendy or here-and-now names, but I don't like it when they go in opposite direction. Just my own experience, but I didn't feel like my parents did me any favors. LOL
