My Name Necklace

If, like me, you've got an unusual name, you'll understand the mixed feelings you can have about it.

On one hand, I like having a name that's different from everyone else's. There has never been more than one Fritha in my class, and never any confusion about whether people are talking to me, or someone else. I also get a lot of people saying they think my name is really cool, or sounds nice.

On the other hand however, it gets tiresome having to repeat it several times over when meeting people, "No, FRi-THa, not THri-FFa", dreading having a supply teacher read out the register to see if they were going to call me "Flipper", and people can be mean, whether they intend to be or not "what? that's not a real name is it!?" One person (a teacher actually), asked me, in a nasty, non-joking way, if my parents were drunk or on drugs when they named me.

I also remember always being a little bit sad on school trips, or days out to the zoo, or museum etc, when all my friends would be able to buy souvenir pens, or keyrings, or hairclips with their names on them. I always used to look for my name, despite knowing that it wasn't going to be there alongside Fiona and Frances.

It's a combinaton of all of these things which made me so happy when the lovely people at My Name Necklace contacted me and asked if I'd like my very own Carrie-style nameplate necklace.

When it arrived it was so nicely packaged in a cute little giftbox that it made up for never having had those dolphin shaped clips with "Fritha" on that I so badly wanted when I was eight.

The necklace itself is beautiful and made out of sterling silver. I've been wearing it non-stop since I've got it. I think it definitely does my name proud!

I just wish my rubbish photography could do it justice!

Anyone who reads this blog regularly may know I already have my arabic name necklace, and my gold initial pendant and earrings, and this is a welcome addition to my collection of "personal" jewellery.

My Name Necklace also does a whole range of other necklace styles, which come in 14ct gold, acrylic and diamond-cut finish too.

They're really reasonably priced too, and a perfect, personal gift to give someone, whether they've got an unusual name or a more common one.

Thank you so much My Name Necklace!

  2. Your name is lovely and unique, unlike mine haha. Every second person seems to be named Nicole, especially in my classes and I always seem to sit next to them and it ends up confusing for others...

  3. I love your necklace. I'm also totally obsessed with your arabic necklace. I've always hated my name because it was common for a few generations above me, so I'd always have people saying, oh yeah, that's my mom's name.
