    Default That's not my name. Jerk. Yeah. I called you a jerk.

    I'm sitting here waiting for dinner to be done and I was all like, "Hey, make a thread." So here is my thread.

    Oh, the subject is your name! Not the movie, though. Actually, not really your name. But the most common way someone screws up your name. It can be either your first name or your last name.

    Basically everyone knows this, but my real name is Justin. My whole life many, many people have a slip of the tongue and call me Jason. There was an article a local paper that featured a picture of me and my great grandmother. They printed my name as Jason. I am completely numb to it.

    Oh, also my last name is absurdly Polish and can easily be mispronounced as a...negative Polish slang term, so that's a thing too.

    So any of you people deal with this sort of trout or what?

    I get Amanda a lot, actually. It's sort of a half-rhyme of Samantha. I also get Sarah, occasionally.

    Not too interesting, though. I have a very Wonder Bread name.

    About half the time I say my name out loud to someone (usually someone needing my name for food-ordering purposes) they mishear "Rob" as "Ralph".

    Was anyone born in the 80s named Ralph?

    My name is very common, but it also has like a million spelling variations which is where this usually kicks in. My last name is also like incredibly simple, yet people still screw it up occasionally.

    This is kind of an abstract thing to explain in English, but Polish has something called case and the vocative form is used to address people, though its kind of phasing out. And I HATE it when people use my name in the vocative. "Patryku" sounds stupid

    Kaycee is the name. Stacy is what they say. Maybe a Lacey. What about Macy? Jaycee?

    Sometimes they do the first part and not the second. Kate, Kaitlyn, Kandy, Kaylee, Kylie

    No one ever gets my name right. Usually it's Stacy though.


    And yeah My name is a bit differently spelled than traditional KC's so it's never spelled right either.

    Idk why, but I always found it amusing that your name sounds the same as your initials

    I get Henry a lot.

    It's not even close, but it's a frequent screw up.

    I was wondering when someone was going to get around to that.

    My surname is Wolstencroft.

    It's like Russian roulette every time somebody tries pronouncing it.
