I’ve given up trying to correct people.

Megan. It’s not hard to spell.

Thomas not Thompson

It’s Octavia not fricking Olivia Jesus Christ

all the friggin time.

It’s pronounced ‘while’, not ‘wheel’. And definitely not ‘whale’.

no ma’am, i did not spell my first name wrong, please don’t correct it for me

Always knew when the teacher got to my name on the roster because they would inevitably stop and blink, and I would just raise my hand and say, “Here.”

Kyla
Not Kayla, Kara, Kylie, Kyle, Karla. 
Just. Fucking. Kyla.

….Laura.I am not Laurie.  I am not Lauren. It is not Lara (which, yes, has a different pronunciation.) I have even gotten Laurel.Laura. It’s simple.  And you know. maybe I wouldn’t be so frustrated if I corrected people when they made a mistake and… they no longer insisted on the other names.I am okay with either it being pronounced LAW-ra or LO-ra.But the rest?  Those are not my freaking name!

BluRaven! The color and the bird! Not Blue Riven, there’s no “I” in my name, not Blue River, Not BluRay, i’m not a’ fuckin’ high definition DVD Player. GRRRRRRRRRRR!
