    11 Things All Ariannas Who Aren't Ariana Grande Will Understand

    Thanks for nothing, Ariana Grande.

    1. You go through a period of hating your name.

    2. It seems so much weirder than all of your classmates' names!

    3. And everyone is always saying it wrong.

    4. People always want to turn it into another name.

    5. Or they want to know "what kind" of name it is.

    6. But one day you get used to it. Actually, you love it!

    7. You never have to distinguish yourself from other people in your class or at your office who share your name.

    8. You're not constantly hearing it in public, turning your head, and realizing that person was talking to someone else.

    9. You actually get pretty smug about it.

    One day you'll be famous, and you'll just go by your first name! You're basically Beyoncè!

    10. Until one day, a tiny pop star gets famous and just blows it up out of nowhere.
