My name is Dessislava, short Dessi. I come from Bulgaria.
It is wrong to spell my name Desislava because then it can't be pronounced correctly. Also you have to know that Dessislav comes from Dessislava, not the other way round because this name comes from the Bulgarian history, there was a queen named Dessislava, ever since this name is widely spread all over my country.
P.S. 90% of the people do not know how to spell Dessislava in English, 100% of the people have it spelled Desislava in their passports. I am going to change this because I would like to hear my name correctly pronounced.
