    I don't know if this has happened to anyone else but yesterday when I went to a shoe shop, I saw a pair of shoes I really liked, turned them over and found the style literally was my name (Kim). Had to buy them of course.

    Funny though when I spoke to the shop assistant, she said she found a pair of shoes once with her name on them (Jessie).

    I know it sounds trivial but lately work has been really crazy. And yesterday was pretty stressful and I had a long day. I suppose it just brightened my day up and made me feel good.

    Cool! I've yet to find a style with mine on them (except that any comfortable shoe has "my name on them", LOL). I did however hear my name in the latest ancestry.com ad aired yesterday for St. Pat's -- something like, "See if you have a Bridget or a Patrick in your family"; it was cute, too, because my grandfather's name was Patrick!

    -Bridget :)

    Anyone else think there were shoes named Aussie Willy when reading the title?

    There was once a line of clothing called Lori Ann - and those are my names (first and middle)

    It is pretty awesome when things like that happen IMO and it is great that it brightened things up for you at a good time!

    Thanks for sharing :)

    When I was younger, my mom found a fabric with my name on it and made me a skating dress from it! Wicked coral color!

    Your shoes are awesome. Mine should be burned. And then the ashes should be burned, in case they try to recreate themselves. A shoe that hideous has to be eville.

    My mum bought a plant called 'my name, the ice dancer'. Technically I'm not an ice dancer but close enough!

    Boots with my name on :D

    I've bought things solely because they were called Cherry Flip before. I remember a nail varnish and a yoghurt :lol:

    I quite like these .

    These look like I only found part of the glass slipper.

    These would have to be burned along with PL's. :scream:

    You can't tell me that at least five teachers in your district don't own a similar shoe!! :lol:

    After all, it would look killer with a denim school bus jumper :scream:

    I have a really unusual name, unusually spelled. I was able to find some :kickass:, over the knee, verrry expensive Frye boots spelled exactly like my name. I wish I was cool enough to wear my namesake boots.

    I'd love to post a link but my name is just too unique. I feel the need to remain :sekret:
