Since I taught high school for five years, I came to know a lot of kids with a lot of names and began to associate these names with each personality. When I named my children, I wanted to pick names that didn't remind me of someone else, so that they could grow up to be their own little personalities.  Little did I know what little personalities I would get...

Karenna (pronounced Ka-REN-ah): Mommy, why do some people call me KarEEna?
Me: Well, because Karenna is not a very common name, so not too many people know how to pronounce it.  But you can use your good manners and tell them, "Excuse me, but my name is Karenna."
Karenna: Yeah, you can't just say, "Hey! My name is Karenna.  You goofed my name up!"
