I have always liked my name. It's different in some groups and more common in others. So I have always known quite a few with my name, but not TOO many. The only thing I have always felt is that I would prefer my middle name to end in an "H" instead of an "A". But I'm glad my mom got the spelling rights to my first name, since I prefer how she spelled it over how my dad wanted to. I'm also happy they changed the name a bit of who I was being named after since I don't like the name Adella, but I do like Adina.
I like my name. Heather is not SUPER common, but common enough that people know how to spell it and pronounce it. I've been asked once to spell my name for someone and all I could reply was 'pardon me? Heather?'. LOL. My mom chose my middle name (Amy) and my dad chose my first name. Initially my mom wanted 'Amy Heather' but as she got to pick my older brother's first name...my dad won this time and I became 'Heather Amy'. Thank goodness. I like that better.
Another name they wanted for me prior was Jennifer. I'm SO glad that a family friend had a baby before I was born and used Jennifer...forcing them to find something new. Jennifer is a nice name, but just SO common. Too common for me. The funny thing is that I've been accidentally called Jennifer more times in my life than any other name...by people who don't know the story. Perhaps I look like one?
They had no boy names chosen for me because my mother hand convinced herself I was a girl. Luckily she was right! :P
