Since Malory complained about people pronouncing her name wrong, I thought I’d point out my own name issues.
People call me Janice. They always have. It’s Janet. By the time I was three, when someone would call me Janice, I would say, “It’s Janet. J-A-N-E-T. Janet.”
My middle name is Diana, like the Princess. I had a girl in high school tell me that my name was pronounced wrong and should be pronounced Dee-anna. I said it was pronounced like Di’s name, and she said, “Well, she pronounced it ‘Dee-anna’.” I never could get her to accept that my name was pronounced correctly.
