Why is going by a differant name so hard?

Koalamate
My family has always called me ben and told everyone to call me ben i went along with it never had much say.
Im in my final year of school and told everyone my real name is brodan and asked for my senior jumper to have brodan on the back.

I got my senior jumper today and it is broden instead and it was the jumper makers fault now i have to wait probably untill semeste 3 to get it everyone else has there's.
Im ok with being called ben but i am introducing myself as brodan i feel like im fighting for my name.
