Ha, my mom was not named after anyone in the family either. My grandparents just liked her name, I guess. How do you pronounce Nadia? NAH-dee-uh, NAY-dee-uh, Nuh-DEE-uh? Mine is ADD-ee LEE

my name.

My mom came up with my name herself (She combined the words 'desart rose' to get Desarose.) My nickname is Dessie. and my middle name is my moms middle name and her mom's middle name which is cool:) People sometimes call me "Desaray" or "Desrosa." XD but i dont like it!
My brother calls me Doodle (no idea why)

My name is pronounced Liss (like bliss or kiss) UH. I was named like the name Alyssa, just easier for east asians to speak. Funny how I found out that later there's a Fire Emblem (fantasy video game) character who has the same name as me!!! I'm not very similar to her though...


Have you ever played Fire Emblem? I was going to ask for the new one on the Switch for Xmas, but it was rated Mature, so that went out the window and I asked for Sid Meier's Civilization VI instead.

@ Addie

FOR THE RECORD!!! It's: Nah-dee-uh


Ah! you look at the WORLD cartoon website?


I always think it's Nad (like nudge) e- uh

This is London

My name is so easy to pronounce XD my parents just like the name i guess. Desarose s I actually kinda know someone with your name. I am starting to think I might know you, um do you go to a camp in October (weird but idk) also there last name is with a s

@Desarose s

Plz read the one above thanks

@ David


@ N&M

It's funny, because I never though Nada was hard to pronounce, and though it was pronounced just like you said it was.



@Addie L

I don't think I know you, bc I know one person that is called Addie, but that is bc her real name is Addison.... So yeah.. that clears that up.....


You're fine, and I totally agree!


(sorry i spelled your name wrong)


Uh, I would like to, but my dad said to never talk to anyone without his permission, and I don't know if your comment will be up for long enough to figure out the initials. WorldTeen will probably delete it, if I had to guess.

If they don’t it’s on here

If they don’t it’s on here forever

London S

I Did go to a camp in October! are you talking about MFR????????????
sorry if i replied too late!

This is London

Um I don’t think so XD maybe we don’t know each other, it’s in Texas so

oh Ok,

Yeah i did go to a camp in October, but it wasn't in Texas it was in one of the more up states....
Are you sure it isn't Desaray?


it might have been XD LOL ! But it was kinda funny how you went to a camp in october !

That was Mylee. Um idk I am

That was Mylee. Um idk I am pretty sure it was your name and everyone called her dessie. ( do you have a sister or cousin named kathrine )


No, i dont have a sister or cousin named katherine...not that i know of, but everyone does call me dessie. Did the person you are talking about have five siblings? This is sort of cool though i didn't know there was anyone else in the WORLD named Desarose XD
