What’s In a Name?

rachel name

Since I’ve been blogging, I’ve noticed a lot of things. These include that the general fashion blogger population must be rich to buy their $1000 Chloe bags, people really need to learn to use their spell check, and that there are a lot of bloggers that share my name- Rachel.

I first starting noticing this when my fellow Rachels would comment on one of my posts and write something like “-From one Rachel to another!” at the end of their comment. I started following some blogs of a few Rachels as well and it sparked a brilliant idea in my head- why not make a post dedicated to all my name-sharing blogging sisters? So here you go:

  3. what an ADORABLE idea for a post…wish I knew more Amys….
    And what is up with every blogger being rich- well, besides me?
    I think Im the guilty one with spelling, I suck at it and forget to check….ooops!

  4. Very sweet post. I will check their blogs out, If I’m not already following 🙂 Rachel is a beautiful name. I have a few Rachel friends too loll LOLLL on the spell check. I’m big on spelling and grammar, but find myself having a lot of mistakes. Especially when I comment. I don’t pay attention then.

  5. this is such a cute idea! and i am probably super guilty of the spell check issue, or at least some major syntax errors haha 🙂

  6. This is a cute idea!! I may need to copy you!:)  I always worry about you reading my blog, I’m sure you find so many mistakes…I’m the queen of fragments and run-on sentences.

  7. Such a great post! Thank you so much for putting this together! I can’t wait to share it with everyone and it has been so good to follow you and the other Rachels 🙂 🙂 🙂

  8. How fun is this post! I need to round up all the Giovanna’s! So far I haven’t come across any.. but you never know! lol

  10. What a cute idea for a post! I already love quite of few of these Rachels, and I’ll have to check out the rest! 

  11. This is such a cute idea! It’s weird though, because throughout my entire life, I’ve probably only came across 3 Al(l)yssas. But in the blog world I know of at least 5 and I know there are probably many more!

  12. This is so cute! I don’t think there are many other Maya’s…..so I might have to go by middle name (probably not that many Lorraines…..) – I think I’m screwed, haha. 

    Love this post though – you’re so darn cute! We should scheme something together in the future 🙂

    1. Thank you Maya! haha I guess you should just enjoy being the only Maya Lorraine, right? We should definitely do something in the future, I’m down!

  16. This is so fun! I follow Rachel at how bout some cake religiously and love her blog but haven’t heard of the others so I am excited to check them out.
