On the subject of names being pronounced wrong, I have two funny stories. First, I have to point out my name is Alice, pretty easy right? I get people all the time saying "Alex" or "Alison" so usually I tell them "Alice, like in wonderland". Then they say "oh, Alice."
When I was in 5th grade, during role call my teacher called me Alison, I corrected him and said "my name is Alice". He said "you go by Alice, your real name is Alison". I told him to look on the attendance sheet, my name is Alice. He proceeded to tell me that parents can just write nick names, my real name WAS Alison. I told him both my grandmas names are Alice and that was my name. When my mom came to pick me up he told her how I was a liar and I argued with him and said my name isn't Alison, it's Alice. My mom responded "yah, that's because her name is Alice! Both her grandmas are named Alice."
I had the same incident with a manager once. She called me Alison a few times, one of the times we were in the office alone and I said "my name is Alice, not Alison" and she told me "yah, I don't like using nick names". I told her good, then you will call me Alice, because that's my full name! Keep in mind, this woman's full name was Bobbie! Those are my name stories.
