Here is some trivia about my name:
My grandmother chose it.
I would have been Kellie whether I was a girl or a boy, though I am not sure about the boy spelling-would it have been -y or -ie? I will have to ask my mom.
My middle name, Lin, is a shortened form of Linda, the name of my aunt, with whom I share my red hair.
I loved having my unusual spelling growing up. There was only one other Kelly my age all through school, and one a grade below me. But I was always the only Kellie. For a kid from a large family who always struggled with feeling hopelessly mediocre and odd, my special name was a touchstone of self-worth for me. I am weeping now just thinking of it.
When Kellie Martin became famous as an actress, it was so weird to see my name in print with another last name.
I ran the applet again for Kellie Nuss. There is one person named Kellie Nuss. I would love to meet her someday!
