My names are super generic, but still get misspelled and -pronounced very often. But it's much worse with my surname omg

Does your name have different variations of spelling?
Is because your surname is long or is it something else? :XD:

It does. :D 

My surname is short, but super rare and people misread/misunderstand it when we tell them. Aaaallll the time. :/
I once got a package and they got my surname so messed up, I still wonder how.

Constantly for my last name. It’s French Canadian so a lot of people pronounce Sauve 
as “suave” or “suav-eh”. When it’s really pronounced as “soh-veh”

Ohhhh I've been saying it in my head wrong this whole time LOL, I've been saying "suav-eh" ahahha.

At least I know the correct way now :'D

Literally all the time, every day xD

Even people I've know for, like, a decade still mispronounce my name. My boss who says my name every day continues to say it wrong xD I had a boyfriend that continues to say AND SPELL my name wrong ahbiuwgbw. It's more funny to me than offensive xD

Omg :XD:

It seems like people don't bother to learn your name XD I understand not spelling it right but pronuncing it wrong for years is pretty ridiculous, but it's funny too :lol:
