As far as names go, i must say i really do "love" my name. :) The other name my parents were considering, was Dawn, which is also a very pretty name...but theres just something 'special/unique' about most "Heather's" i've met. I can't pinpoint exactly what "it" is...it's "just there". ;) And it's a bonus if a female is as pretty as her name...most importantly, on the inside! :)

I dont like it

I didn't like it when I was young but now that I am older I like it.
Those who English is a second language have a bit of trouble pronouncing it at first.

Just way to common for the year I was born. LOTS of Heathers.
