People always comment on my name and say it's pretty.
Over the phone people call me Alicia. If I've said it without spelling it out I'll often get selicia as my name on a letter lol.
Also people call me felicity and sometimes address me as that in an email even though my name is written right there.
It gets mispronounced all the time. I say it fell-ee-see-ya (as my mum did). I get called fell-ee-sha a lot.
I don't really mind though. 30 years plus had desensitised me to caring about it and I just roll with whatever people call me lol.

When asked for my surname I immediately say I'll spell it for you. It was always fun getting telemarketing calls, to hear how badly they fluff it up. It is spelt phonetically, so I don't know why ppl freak out.
And my first name is Helen but I've received mail for Kelvin and Gary before guess I sound like a guy

I get "That's an unusual name, how to do say that?"
"Where does that coooome from?"
"That looks ........." (any other country)
My maiden name was pretty British (where I was born) and they still f$@ked up so, I changed it to give them something interesting to f$@k up.

The thing I HATE more than anything is when people are replying to an email where I've clearly written my name correctly, and they still spell it wrong.
I've had people saying my name wrong for my entire life, and that so much doesn't bother me. But the fact that you've just read my name in print and STILL get it wrong, I can't see that there's an excuse for that. Copy and paste if its that hard!
My name is not so unusual, just multiple spellings and variations.

I stopped wearing a name badge. My name is Maori and always pronounced incorrectly. The worst I've had is n!gger!!
Being a rather unique name (even in NZ) I don't expect people to say it right.
