My name is seriously uncommon around here at least. It's Irish. Prounounced Fail-in. Spelled Falon. I used to hate it and went through a phase where I wanted everyone to call me by some variation of my middle name (Elizabeth). With the exception of my best friend at the time, that did not happen.

My fiance is Chinese and I will be taking his last name and so will our kids some day. So, I want Irish/Gaelic names if I can for them.

Oh, I almost forgot. My own sister's name is Gretchen. Nobody names their girls Gretchen. I hardly ever hear it. And I love it. A good German name. Or how 'bout Gretta? Cute, huh.

That's happened to me too. My old boss thought that my name was Elizabeth. He must have gotten the queens' names confused (I'm Victoria). I corrected him a couple times but it was such a busy place and he must have forgotten .. and he kept calling me Elizabeth. Eventually I just started responding.

There was a joke about calling this baby Ruthless if it ends up being a girl. Ruth for short.
