    i used to have this friend who did that, one day after we'd known each other for years his aunt was like why do you keep calling him that his name is this not that. It was awkward, cause he found out my real name, and i found out he didn't have a lisp. :P

    People usually don't miss-pronounce my name. Jill. Pretty simple. But teachers at the beginning of the year always call me Jillian and that irritates me. I don't remember why I even get bothered by being called Jillian.

    But I lovveeee when foreigners miss-pronounce my name. It's so cute with their little accents!

    Whats your name?



    Sure! ;)

    Ever since I was little.

    It doesn't bother me anymore.

    My name is Bojana. Pronounced Boy-ana.

    So it's understandable that they wouldn't be able to pronounce it.

    People just call me Bojangles or BoJesus.

    I like BoJesus much better, then my actual name.

    No, my name's Jess. But I knew a girl in high school named Kylea (pronounced like Kylie). Everyone always said it like Ky-LEE-ah, it was kind of funny.

    My first name is easy but my last name has never been pronounced correctly ever. It is pronounced fee-case but spelled Fikejs. I don't get mad cuz everyone always does it.

    My name is always pronounced right. I have a friend, and every time there is a sub, her name is murdered. I think they should have professional name pronouncers. :)
