People pronounce my name wrong all the time. My name is lauran pronounced law-run but people pronounce it l-oh-run and when I say it's like laura with an N on the end they pronounce it law-ran. The only people that actually call me by my name properly are my mum, dad and grandad.. Everybody else just calls me polly.

NEW YORK, NY,
some idiot pronounced my name is "rand-EYE"da fuck?My last name is extremely easy to pronounce as it's a word in the english language. Basically you have to fail at english in order to screw up the pronunciation of my names.

ASHA. Ahh + Shaa LOLI've people calling me Asher, but it's not tt many so I'm fine with it. All you guys above have such unique names. :)
My name's Naomi. As in, NAY-OH-ME. I didn't think it was too difficult but I always seem to get NY-OH-ME, KNEE-OH-ME, NO-AH-ME and even sometimes NAY-HOMIE. To be fair, I shouldn't be complaining. My last name is Oforiokuma. Let's not even get into the mispronunciations for that.
I wrote about this in another topic but my name I pronounced like SHUH-VORN but so many people try and say it how its actually spelt.And then I've been called things like Sabine, Simone and Shaun!
Well, people don't usually pronounce my name wrong when they see it, but when I tell people my name, they often think I say "Tracy," "Lacey," or "Macy." It's quite annoying. Sometimes I just say "Grace" to get rid of any confusion. My last name starts with "Mc" which is Irish, and definitely confuses people. I always have to spell it out when I tell it to someone.
MEXICO CITY, MEXICO,
My name is Marina, and the often call me Mariana or Maria. God hate it so much! Once they even called me Marbella...
Haha my name is Tamar, and people from amrica say my name like "tamoooww" or "taymar" it's really funny.

My name is Miah & most people say it like "My-uh," but it's "Me-uh." Like Mia Hamm.. just with an H. lol
my last name is Kupferschmidt and once you break it down into cup-fur-schmidt, it's really not difficult to say, but people either leave out the F and/or stick in an M. I just don't understand the need to pronounce it Kumperschmidt.although there was one time someone said Kupferfish, which was pretty hilarious.(also Kupfershit is easily misspoken. or said on purpose from people who don't like me.)

You'd think it would be easy to pronounce my name, Marie. I Denmark the e at the end is pronounced a little like an "uh", but not like in Maria. More like "Ma-ree-eh". Even when people read out my name, they call me Maria? Now I just hate that name.

Naaaaa-na (like grandma) i do it too though, its difficult to pronounce icelandic names when speaking another language, except maybe swedish/norwegian ;)
My name is Pamada (Pah-mah-dah), which I normally think should be easy enough, but I get Pam-A-Da a lot, or Pa-ma-DUHThe worst is over work emails though. My name is out there right in front of them, but no one ever spells it right. I've gotten:PadmaPamandaPamda

Tandava. Tan-dah-vuhI getTan-day-vuhTan-dah-raTen-dollaTen-doov-ahTan-dav-iaTa-van-duhI've even gotten Pajama
I always thought that Kit would be simple enough... But I'm constantly called 'Kat' and it drives me mental. I've started either spelling out my name or telling people what it rhymes with...

No one ever gets mine right. I never use my real name anymore because I am sick of the misspellings, missayings and are you sure that's your name?It's bad enough 'Elizabeth' is spelt or said wrong. I get very angry quickly. ElisAliceEllyAlly Lizzie (no just no)Lili BeatriceBettyBetteBethLizLisbeth (like the character)The first common is I get called by my first name which I don't like. I hate. I've changed but still get called it on documents and in college. I get stupid nicks as well.And my surname is just as bad.

Senna, Sayna, Rosane, Rozana, Rozna.I also had a hyphenated surname and people try to run them together. I've pretty much just stated answering to lastnames that start with a D and take people half and hour to say

My first name is easy enough, though I constantly get people telling me I'm called Rebecca. Erm, nope. I think I'd know by now if that was my name.My surname, however, is ALWAYS being pronounced wrong. I've been called Crabs and Crackers before. It's neither of those. My mum's surname is Ferrier. It rhymes with terrier, funnily enough. She gets called ferry-ay, fur-ear-a, ferrari and all sorts of crazy stuff.
