I've had it all my life, and believe me it has been said every which way! Do you know how hard it is to find things with a U on it, let alone my whole name? So the few times I have been in Germany I would pick something up with my name or initial. Not too many Ulrike's in the states, but when I went to school in Germany I had one in my class. When I moved back east from being out west I had gone to the grocery store to stock up. The cashier said to me, do you know that there is someone else here in town with your name?!! Quite a surprise.
So, a few items I have with my name. A name I love, it's unique, like me!
