Am I gonna be dealing with this his whole life?

My neighbor just came over to visit & we talked about what we were thinking of naming the baby. As she left as refered to him as Abraham. I don't know if she misheard me or what, but ewww. Are people gonna call him Abraham? It's ABRAM. Not Abraham.

Totally lame. I know how you feel. Hanne gets called Haney so so often. What an ugly name!

uh. yes. and it sucks. i've dealt my WHOLE life. i mean, is four letters and two syllables really so hard? it shouldnt be, but it is for some people. just be aware of what you are doing and if you want him to have to deal with it FOREVER!

ps. people call jonas "jonah" all the time. even after i emphasize the 'ssss' sound. idiots.

Hey, I was looking at your blog to show my sister your wedding cakes. They are awesome, but then I read this and had to comment. People think Brinley's name is Brittany all the time. Like I would name my kid after a crazy hooker singer. I am always correcting them It is Brinley. But even with the mistakes I would still name her Brinley if I had her again today.
By the way, when is your baby due? My sister is getting married the end of May and loves your cakes. Could you let me know your prices and if that is even a possibility once you have your little guy.
see ya at the gym

umm, yep. Everyone will pronounce it as they see it at first glance. Good luck with that one! I grew up with a name like that but I liked my name so it didn't bother me to correct pretty much EVERY person who tried to say Kierstin Spjut. He'll be freakin' cool no matter what people call him.

I get pissed off but that's the kids name man and peeps gotta respect.
