    My name is Jennifer, and once a teacher pronounced my name Gun-nifer. She was full American and had no accent, which made it twice as awkard when I had to correct her.

    My last name is ALWAYS pronounced wrong unless the person saying it understands a little bit of Polish.. it's got eleven letters and it's got 3 z's and 3 letters are vowels omfg it's always butchered when I get called up for awards and stuff at school
    not to mention that it's alway misspelled on certificates too

    Some people don't always pronounce my first name, "Olivia" right even.. but I get that there's a lot of variations of my name..

    My married name is Polish. People mispronounce it all the time although it is pronounced just like it's spelled. My married name was German and four syllables. Thank God I didn't hyphenate or my kids would still be learning how to write their names.
