    Weirdest mispronunciations?

    So today I got a call from my vet telling me my dog "Gina" as in Gee-nuh was ready for her annual wellness exam.

    Thing is, my dog's name is Jenna.(She's a white German shepherd and Jenna means "white; fair; smooth" thought I was pretty clever lol)

    I know they have it spelled right in the system. How on earth do you get Gina out of Jenna? I live in the southern US so accent has nothing to do with it!

    What's the weirdest way someone has pronounced your name?

    Luckily for me, my name is three letters long and there's only one way to pronounce it. My poor friend Angharad gets all sorts of bizarre things though. Angryhad, ANG-ha-rad etc.

    Most common mispronunciation of my name is SEE-sha, though people do often mistake it for Sasha. The misspellings, however, can be insane: Sesha, Seesha, Sasha, Shesa, Shesha, Tasha, Keisha, and Seeshaw, in order of wackiness. Seriously, I get missing the double s in the middle, but how does one hear SEH-sha and get Seeshaw?? O.o

    I've totally been calling you Sesh in my head for short, lol. The double 's' definitely trips me up though. Seeshaw is hilarious.

    My name is Madison, but I go by Maddie, and I get called Maggie, Madelyn, and Madeline all the time. I've been called Betty and Pattie before, too. I have no idea how Maddie = Betty or Pattie. Me getting called all sorts of names other than my actual name is sort of an inside joke between my best friend and I. lol
