My name is [name]Sloane[/name], and I think it’s an awesome name!! Not common at all, which I think is great, but it’s also cool to meet a [name]Sloane[/name] once in a while, whcih I have. Two little girls, so that’s neat!
When I was younger I would always hear people say, “[name]Sloane[/name] is such a cool name!” In Speech class, church, the water park, even on the baseball field. I’ve heard, “If I have five kids, I’m naming them all [name]Sloane[/name],” and “I wish my name was [name]Sloane[/name]–I love saying that!” So obviously, everyone loves it, but it isn’t used that often. Maybe it’s one of those names that people like to hear on others, but they wouldn’t use it on their own kids.
I’ve never gotten teased at all about my name, everyone just always spells it wrong. [name]Sloan[/name] is the most common, but I have gotten Slone before. Pronounctions aren 't a problem, although one time in third grade a boy did call me “Slo-[name]Anne[/name].” It was not teasing, he was dead serious! So since then, close friends have called me Slo-[name]Anne[/name] every once in a while. (my brother calls me Slow, but he’s just a brother!)
I’ve been called Sloanie since I was a baby by family and close friends, and I like that because you can also spell it [name]SloanE[/name], just so people remember never to forget that e! That’s my pet peeve, when people forget my e. My name has also allowed me to take interest in the spelling and pn of other people’s names. I always want to make sure I spell a name right and pn it right, because I know how it feels to get your name misspelled all the time.
Overall I really love my name. I think it ages well, fits on any type of girl, and is a name that’s ready to be popular–although I hope it never gets too popular. I do recommend people use it more----I think it’s such a beautiful and classy name!!!
