No one has ever been able to look at my name and say it right

Elisia

E- leash- A

I've been called every known way of saying it very few people saying it right.

and those who try to write it with out seeing it a bunch of times don't get it right 

next to no one in my family writes in correctly.

I'm sorry. I would completely butcher the pronunciation of your name :/

Sounds like a good choice to name him that.

I'm Kristin-with-an-i.  Everyone wants to spell my name Kristen.  Sigh.  I've had to correct people about my name my whole life.

I'd go to court and change the spelling.  Of course, then you've got to change it with social security, your bank, your credit card companies, your job... But it'd be totally worth it wouldn't?

I win, mine sucks. It's Brittani.

Some people throughout time have tried to ronounce it Bree-tawny?? I was on the news once and they butchered it. 

That and the number one most hated thing, is that there are WAY too many ways to spell Brittani and not once, in my life, ever, has someone suggested the correct way first. Ever... and I usually get the weird or surprised eyebrows when I tell them how.

My name is Shanon. People either add an n as in Shannon, or they call me Sharon cause they look at it and think the n is an r.
