My name is Kenna, so I guess it's a less-common version of Kennedy or McKenna...
My last name however... It's pretty rare I'd say, it has the simplest spelling on the face of the Earth, except for the fact that it has an accent. So hardly anyone can say/spell it anyway.

My name is Leah. I've only met one other, but I know it's relatively common. I get Princess Leia jokes a lot even though my name is pronounced differently. But my last name AND middle name are just about as common as "smith" :|

I used to know a Leah or 2 I wouldn't have thought they would get that many jokes but omf I bet having to but up with Princess Leia must be annoying

They say my name Summer is common, but I've only heard stories of a few Summers and I don't think I've ever met one personally so I guess it's not that common??? idk bro 

but it's like

people are all programmed to say 

the

exact 

same 

thing

"Oh you're Summer? Where's Winter!?"

"It's always Summer Time when you're around!"

"Hey look it's Summer Breeze!" (no that isn't even anywhere in my name people just call me Summer Breeze for no reason omF)

I like the name Summer! I also like the name Autumn. But I can see how that gets annoying lol.
I get the whole, "See ya, Leah! HAHA THAT RHYMED!"

My surname is pretty uncommon, pronounced the same way as a city (but not spelled the same way). It's also a type of Polish sour soup :stare:

When I was named Stella, this sure was an exotic name. But nowadays, not so much.

Born with a Korean name, but changed to a Swedish one since I got adopted at a very young age.
My Korean last name is Kim. But in Sweden, that is a fairly common first name.

My name isn't in use much anymore - it was most popular between the 1920's to the 1950's, it would seem, so people frequently tell me that it's rather odd... and they all pronounce it differently xD

And my last name just confuses people. It's an obscure German name that no one can ever spell right for some reason, even though it's not really that difficult lol

Yeah, my name is really made up the people mess up even time they would write it down and say it. Most people say the is a pretty name but lot of the kids in school were I use to go made fun of it. I guess because it did sound a bit silly sometimes were people would say it wrong. Because, lot of people did not knew how to say it right so I told them to just call me B***a or B for short. My family calls me by my nickname but I wish I would change it to Tony. Not the I hate my name or anything. I just like Tony the is all. If I can't then I don't keeping my real name for the rest of my life!~

I'm one of 2 people in my school with the name Chelsea.
Nothing too unusual, but nothing overly common either.
But I think my last name is a bit unusual. XD
