    Calliope. I always thought it was Callie-oh-pee. Then I heard it pronounced Ca-lye-oh-pee on Grey's Anatomy and it completely ruined it for me.
    Cassia and Cassius will never be pronounced with 'Cash' in them by me. I don't like it one bit. It's more that I loved them the 'Cassie' way so so much that I can't bear to hear it any other way.

    @ottilie I was the same with Aisling, I was so disappointed when I found out the proper pronunciation. Another name I used to get wrong was Isla (now it's a personal favourite) I thought it was eyez-la until my sister told me.
    I also knew a girl named Aoife and everyone called her eye-oh-ffee (as a joke but the nn caught on) but I thought it was her real name...oops!

    Love Actually is so wonderful!

    I pronounced Chloe as Chill-oh! Hahaha, and Penelope as Pen-elope. I think these things happen when you read names before you hear them.

    I thought Rowena has a soft "e" - like Ro-when-ah, not Ro-een-ah. I like it better my way
