    My daughters name is pretty much said how it looks (Senia) but people still pronounce it wrong. She's been called Seneca, Sienna, Sen-eye-a...

    I'm not a mom, but my own name (Erykah) is messed up a lot, sadly. When you think about it, it spelt just how it's sounds. However, I guess the y throws people off. My name has been pronounced: Eureka, Er-EEE-kah (heavy emphasis on the y), Urek, so on and so forth. It sucks when at teacher messes up your name though. The 6th grade teacher that called me Eureka in front of my class inspired the name that my friends would tease me with for an eternity - Urethra.

    Shockingly, Antoine is nearly always pronounced correctly (save a recent person who insisted on calling him Angela). I mean by all kinds of people from all walks of life. I was surprised how well-known the name is. Now, writing it down is a different matter....

    My daughter is Amelie, but gets Amelia quite a lot. Even after I correct certain people, they continue to call her by the wrong name. Then they wonder why she ignores them when they talk to her Call the girl by the right name and she'll talk to you!

    My name is Georgia.

    Here, it's quite a popular name so you know - you'd think people would know how to say it but intrestingly, there always seems to be a debate on whether I'm Jaw-juh or Jaw-jEE-uh. I remember one day coming to my grandma's house and the subject came up. She was convinced it was Jaw-jEE-uh. Until that day, I had never really thought of how I said it and when my mum came in to pick me up and started discussing it, it occurred she had never thought either. Georgia is kinda of a lazy name we decided in the end. It's Jaw-jEE-uh, but Jaw-juh gets thrown around and used more coz its quicker and easier? Or maybe it's a mix of both with the EE and UH sort of mixing together? Yeah, I really don't know.
    Just another teenage name nerd.
