My last name is too closely related to three famous icons so I'm constantly either correcting people or spelling my last name for people. After 37 years it's beyond annoying but something I can't escape. I once thought of changing it to "Jones" or "Smith" but it seems like too much paper work.
What about you?

All the time,
if you pronounce my last name how its spelled and you will pronounce it wrong.
basically, there is a ch that is not pronounced as "CHUH"
But rather like wk.
Though people I know get it right pretty much always.
My first name is what they get wrong because it sounds and spelled one letter different from a very common first name, my first name is just the scottish variant of that other first name1
