    Name: Alissa (with an i)  :2cool:
    Like/Dislike?: I used to despise my name because no one could EVER say or spell it (they still can't...) but I love it now. It's unique and I've only personally known 1 other girl with the same spelling as me. Most spell it with a "y."
    Named After Someone?: Nope. My mom stole the name Alyssa from her boss, but she fixed the spelling.  8-)
    Name Fits Personality?: I think so. There's other names I like more than my own, but for the most part it suits me. It's better than being named Edwina (my mom's friend suggested that name for me, blech)
    Fave Nicknames: Lissa and Alisaurus. I also go by Lissy Aliss, but they aren't my favorites.
    Fave Names: Girls-Carmen Alexis, Vanessa Maria (what I want to name my daughters one day) and I love the name Maricella too. Boys-Lucas,Owen, Alex, Scott, Zackary, Blaise and some others I forgot. :lol:

    [/quote]

    Super pretty name. :)

    I know of an Edwina. She was a friend of my ex's. Very pretty girl, but the name... not so much.

    Re: An Invasive Poll (w/Questions) About Your Birth Name!

    Name: Tracey ( with an E please ) Helen.
    Like/Dislike?: I don't give a shit, it's better than being called Edna I suppose. I recall being the only Tracey in my year at school. I thought it was a common name, maybe it's just for common folks.  :lol:
    Named After Someone?: Dick Tracy. My dad wanted to call me Penelope, which would have been a fucking nightmare with my last name, but my mum said no. So he chose my middle name Helen, which was his mums name.
    Name Fits Personality?: I have no idea.
    Fave Nicknames: Trace, Tray, T, TeaTray, Psycho.
    Fave Names: Caleb and Riley for boys. Sorrel and Eve for girls.

    [quote author=LawChick link=topic=16516.msg1024354#msg1024354 date=1222889017]
    Name: Misty

    Like/Dislike?: I've always liked it. It's not incredibly common but it's also not off the wall weird.

    Named After Someone?: Sigh. A friend of my dad's had a daughter about 6 months before I was born. He named her Misty (not sure of her middle name). My dad really liked the name, so he convinced my mom that I should be named Misty. Originally I was going to be Heather. I love that my dad is a copy cat and totally stole my name. :lol:

    Name Fits Personality?: It fits me better than Heather.

    Fave Nicknames: I don't have a lot of nicknames that are directly related to my name. Mist, Mitty and Miffy are pretty much the only ones. A lot of people called me Mitty in high school, but I haven't been called that in awhile. Most of my friends and my mom call me Miffy. I fucking hate it, but they don't care. :lol:

    Fave Names: Favorite girls names are Abigail, Ainsely, Olivia, Sophia, Emerson and Ava. Favorite boys names are Jackson, Colin, Mason, Austin, Christian and Garrett.
    [/quote]

    For you, I think Misty is much better than Heather.  I like the name Heather, as well, but I always associate it with blondies. You're not a blondie. :shake: Additionally, your eyes = misty-esque (blue like the ocean!). 

    ETA: Can't get the li'l head shaking emoticon to work for me. I wish they showed up during post modifications.

    I no longer feel bad now about admitting that if I had two daughters, I would name one Galadriel.

    I'm pretty sure if any of my kids take after me, they'll be uppity know it all bitches, with an awesome mom who names them after Lord Of The Rings characters.&nbsp; We'll get a hairless cat and name it Gollum to complete the family tree.

    Did your grandma pronounce it &quot;Eye-Nez?&quot;

    That's just weird about you and your Sonia dolls... and it's the first time I've ever heard such a thing.&nbsp; When my friends were pregnant with girls, I'd always say, &quot;Sonia is a fine name for a girl,&quot; which was followed by laughter.&nbsp; :-(

    Yes she did.&nbsp; I always loved her name.&nbsp; I had to choose between Inez and Millie!&nbsp; It is strange about the Sonia dolls.&nbsp;

    I love that name, I probably would have used it for one of my daughters eventually, but now it's tainted with my dolls.&nbsp;

    Oh, I forgot to mention that Misty means &quot;full of mist&quot;. Just thought I'd clarify that.
