You have me figured out, you also roll the r
My name is spelt like name A, but pronounced like name B. I'm not sure if my Mum did that on purpose or not, but It's truly annoying because when someone reads it, they always pronounce it wrong, if they hear it, they always spell it wrong
Then I married DH and took his surname. It should be pronounced how it is spelt, but no one ever gets it right, so now I have to spell out TWO names *sigh*

My partner's (and now my son's) surname is eastern European. Absolutely impossible for Australians to pronounce. The j is pronounced as y and the "ic" at the end is said as "itch". I've noticed when my son has appointments at the doctors and they call out his name, they don't even bother trying to say his surname! I dread getting married and changing my name!
