    *shrug* I just love how it sounds.
    The worst thing about the name:
    People arguing over whether it's a feminine or a masculine name. Quit it. I'm proud of my name. Don't insult me by calling it an exclusively feminine name. It's UNISEX, get it through your head already.

Quit arguing whether it's a 'boys' or a 'girls' name already. When people start to do that it's called 'unisex'.
