See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I dont get all pissy when someone mispronounces or mispells names but sometimes it is quite annoying. Especially when the name is simple.
My name is Brandie. In Kindergarten my teacher taught me to write my name. She taught me to write it with a Y. My mom was pissed lol. I was spelling my own name wrong. Brandy.
My sons name is Bransyn. There really is no other wy to pronounce it. Or so I thought. At the Dr people call him Bryson or Brantley.
The horrible part is our last name is Lyda. Pronounced Lie-dah. I get Li-da or Lydia all the time. Sometimes people assume my first name is Lydia. So they think my last name is Brandie? They do the same thing with my son.
I have seen a few people comment that we are setting our children up for mispronunciations and mispelling my havind different names. I seriously believe it is laziness on most names. How hard is it to sound it out. My 6 yr old can do that. Brandie is not all that unique. The spelling isnt either. Bransyn looks different because of the Y, There is no way to screw that up if you are looking at it.
People here say people gat names like Lucy messed up. Lucy is very normal. I just think the lazy people need to take a minute to read instead of guessing
