What is your first & middle name?
Did you have problems with people spelling your name or saying your name wrong as a child (or adult)?
If so, did this bother you a lot about having to correct people?
My name is Erica Beth.... I've only had a couple people question how to say Erica (which I think is such an easy name!) and I've had several people question if its spelled Erica, Erika or Ericka...... its not really a pain in the butt either.... unless the same person messes it up over and over and over again!
My name is Gabriella Maria Wilhelmina. I honestly can't remember if I had trouble saying it as a child. I know other people had trouble pronouncing my first name at Kindy and still now people have trouble. I don't think I had much of a problem spelling it either. I get annoyed if I have to keep telling the same person how to pronounce it.
I'm Suzanne Jane - I've always thought it's a straightforward name but i have had people spell it in some weird and wonderful ways. The only person who's had trouble saying it is my cousin's oldest daughter, when she was a toddler she couldn't quite manage Suzanne so said 'Susan Ann' - she's 13 now but it's stuck and she still calls me that! I don't mind her doing that, but on the whole i prefer being called Suzanne rather than Sue or Suzie etc.
My name is Jennifer Lee Oddly enough I have had my first name mispronounced a few times. And people also mispell it: Jenifer.... It never really bothered me. What did bother me was how many other Jennifers there were, lol.
Rebecca Jacklynn.. I've never had to correct anyone with the spelling. I used to wish it was spelled Rebekah, but now I don't really care anymore. They only thing that people used to mispell was Becky. They used to spell it Backy (lol?), but that was like way back in grade school.
People spell my nicknames all different ways, Becca, Bekah, Becki, Becky.. It doesn't bother me at all though, cause I do it too, lol.
beckii ... momma to my beautiful princess Mikayla Lynn 01.18.06
my name is Janelle Kathryn and i love it! i wouldn't change it for anything! However, people always spell it wrong. [jannelle, jannell, janell, janel, etc] and kathryn they spell katherine usually.. but i just correct them and move on. i've always been the only one in my classes so i love it! no one has ever pronounced it wrong though.. my last name on the other hand......... LOL.
