If someone totally butchers your name by mispronouncing it would you get offended?

When they didn't mean to?

  • People mispronounce my name all the time I stopped caring in 3rd grade. I understand that my name is different so its whatever if you can't pronounce it. If they want I can help them say my name correctly but its not a big deal.

  • No. My real name is hard for people to pronounce at times. It's only when I've told a person my name more than 3 times is when I become offended. If this is the same case for you then that means this person either really sucks at names or just doesn't care enough about you to remember your name. If thats the case then this person should matter as less to you as you do to them.

  • While my name is foreign, it's EXTREMELY EASY to pronounce. It's a soft sounding 4 letter name, yet people constantly fuck it up left and right.

    So I've concluded that if someone can't manage 2 vowels and 2 consonants, I deem them a fucking retard.

    Not offended, just gradually more disappointed with the quality of people I encounter.

  • No, because my name is difficult for most people to pronounce correctly without proper guidance.

  • i wouldn't, why would i if they didn't know you and therefore didn't know how to say your name? thats like getting offended if someone you didn't even know didn't know your birthday.

  • I have had that done so so so many times to my name. Eventually, you get over it 😛. Its okay to be a little offended if you correct them and they say it wrong.. Again... And again though.

  • Well, my first and last names are not complicated so, if someone who spoke English as their first language had trouble with it. I'd question their intelligence.

What Guys Said 12

  • No, BUT I do get sick out of people NOT LISTENING. I say my last name & spell it. "B" like BOY then the rest. Nope. I get "D" "T" "V" & occasionally a "G"
    I would say to them "B" like BOY not DOY, TOY, VOY or GOY

    Now I just use a very similar common name.

  • No, of course not. My name is probably weird to foreigners, although if it was "Gyula" like my father's name it'd be even more confusing. Other languages generally don't have the Hungarian "gy" sound.

  • There are times when people have pronounced my first name as a part that they should have inside their head but apparently not any more cos it has fallen out and rolled off their tongue.
