    My Mum Spelt My Name Wrong On My Birth Certificate

    I don't suit my name, full stop. My mum said she always wanted my name to be posh and refined, but I just think it sounds pompous and snobby. Plus, most people hear it wrong over the phone and end up calling me something else entirely! My middle name is the worst though, because...

    If All Else Fails...

    ...at least your first and last name don't rhyme and alliterate. I've never liked my name it all. It's neither my first name or my last name that I don't like, it's the combination of both. My last name contains all of the consonant and vowel sounds that my first name...

    I always sound and feel awkward and don't know what to say. Talking face-to-face is fine and texting is good. But I don't like talking on the phone.
