Like, once I got a call from my daughter's doctor's office and the nurse I was speaking to asked if I was Mc____'s mom (and she doesn't even have a last name first name!) It's not a terrible mistake when it's a girl, but I could imaging it being embarrassing for a little boy in school to accidentally be called "McKenzie Jackson" instead of "Jackson McKenzie", for example.
    This happens regularly to a friend of mine called Morgan Susan. Poor guy, he's just learned to answer to Susan now.

    Any name with an "st" or "sh" sound, as it goes terribly with our last name, Estes. So no Esther, Asher, West, etc.
