My name is spelt uniquely, so I guess I get to make up its meaning, since there's no meaning for it when KT is spelt K-A-I-T-Y. lolI'm lucky! Besides, Katy or Katie means pure and innocent. pfft! ya, right! Well...I'm not exactly evil, but I'm not pure and I'm not innocent.
Or I'll use both my first and last name that I'll eventually change to when I'm like 18:
Alfonsa-Ready, or battle ready.
They're GermanFUN!!! ever heard Brianne? That's me middle name. It's not pronounced like BriannaIt's pronounced Bree-anne, ya know?
