  • My name is Barbara but everyone calls me Barbie because my hubby's name is... are you ready? Ken. When we were dating we went to a small school and everyone knew us and joked, "Here comes Ken and Barbie again." LOL Generally people don't call me by the wrong name, but they do misspell it - Barbra, it throws some people for a loop to throw an extra A in there.

    However, its almost always spelled incorrectly by those who dont know me.

  • My name is Dusti, and people who read my name first (such as first day of school/new teachers) always assumed it was a typo and called me "Dustin".

    If I'm not paying attention to my DH, he'll call me Dustin, just because he knows how much it irks me.
