    Which one was USA High? The name sounds familiar, but I'm not sure if I remember what it was about.

    My name is Elin and I hate it. Especially when English speaking people tries to pronounce it, it sounds like Ellen. Not met anyone over here that can pronounce it. Not that it matters, it's ugly even if you can pronounce it. Sadly, I have no middle name.

    Heh, hard to explain so I made a video. :roll:  Actually, it sounds like a mix between Allen and Ellen when English speaking people pronounce it, even if I have just introcuded myself they can't say it right!

    I can't believe Elizabeth would go from dating the basketball star to her own brother.

    Ohhh, that's not hard to say! I mean it sounds really harsh with my nonaccent, but it's not impossible to say. People are funny. I think they just call you what they want, regardless. My exboyfriends mom used to call me Kathryn or Kathleen because she was insistent that my name couldn't just be Katie.

    I don't know. My husband that I've been with for over 6 years now can't pronounce it. He thinks he can though, but he really can't. I just think it sounds weird to me because he has an American accent when he says it...

    I love your name! It's like Ailing without the g. Ailin'. At least in my mind. It's not ugly at all, I think it's pretty!

    I agree with Soul, though. It is a very pretty name.

    Todd, and Jeffery. And then in the newer books when they decided not to use Cynthia and Brittany Daniels as the twins, she started dating Connor, right? And Jessica had Sam, Christian, anddd then Jeremy?

    I always thought it was odd that Olivia died in the earthquake, but came home on Christmas vacation in the college years. Miracles happen, I guess.

    I just went on the Sweet Valley website and apparently they're re-releasing the books.

    I dated a guy from Brazil for 5 years who was named &quot;Alen&quot; but it wasn't pronounced like &quot;Allen&quot;. He said that I couldn't say it right but then again, he's the one who called me &quot;Moose&quot; so I didn't feel so bad&nbsp; :lol:

    My birth name is Karen. I was named after a friend of my parents.

    I've always hated Karen _ it seems so not me.

    My middle name is Cecelia, so I started having people call me K.C. Then I made it Kasey (so people would stop asking what the K and C stood for), and legally changed my first name to Kasey in my early 20s.

    My fav female names are Michaela, Caitlin, Katherine.

    Heh, I guess my name could have been worse. I was told they were going to name me &quot;Siw Karin&quot;. That doesn't fit me at all.
