You'd be amazed how often this happens:
"Quinn, right?" "Nope. It's Gwen." "Gwin?" "No, Gwen."
And while my name does sound like "Gwin" in a Southern accent, I don't have anything resembling a Southern accent and I always hit the E. I've also had people mistake my name (on paper) for "Given." Nope, I'm actually not a 17th century Puritan.
And then there's my last name. Irish O' names often have a hard time of it. I never know whether they want the apostrophe or not on forms, and people always forget to capitalize the second letter. At least 3 of the colleges I applied to told me they were missing my records and I hadn't applied--when in fact I had, but they had different parts of my application filed under O' and O. It's a pain.Gwen
College student, bookworm, terrible influence.
