Eh...a little but just because it's a Spanish name. Our first son is Maximiliano (Max E meal E ah no) and people are funny trying to say it. I mean really just say Maximilian with an O if you can't figure it out! Most people are smart enough to sound it out though. We're thinking Sebastian for this next baby so hopefully no one will have problems with that!

We went with an alternative spelling so we are having to deal with that, basically any time someone else is in the position to spell his name. It's Nathanial with an A instead of an E at the end, so it's not too terrible.

We were going to go with Nathan for short but it didn't take long to make everyone call him by his full name (I would have allowed Nathan, not Nate or Nat) so now I have to deal with the misspelling as well. AND the kid refuses to say his own name.

I'm good. there might be some issues with my tadpole's name (Liam and Airen) but my older three are pretty good.

 I gave DD a different spelling of Brianna its Brionna and they pronounce is like bree-o--nah and its just bree-on--nah :) She just answers to anything really and then comes home and complains a bout it. Had I thought it would be that hard to pronounce I probably would have spelled it another way

EVERY SINGLE TIME lol I can totally understand the mix up but my daughters name is Arianna - I want it to be pronounced Rianna and everyone ALWAYS says AIRianna... frustrating but understandable... what ticks me off is that her actual doctor of 2 years now still says AIRianna, it's like dude I correct you every single time get it right!

My son does. His name is Jyden (Jayden) I liked it spelled the other way and so did my husband. We have only gotten in a couple of times but when we do I always correct them and now my son does too. Its funny when he does he gets SOOO mad at them he goes can't you read! (he is 9).

We get Jiden a lot....i'm trying to figure out how to spell it the way people say it and thats the only way i can think of J-I-den with the I very prominent. He gets so mad.
