    i still have my ex-husband's surname

    The reason I hate my last name is

    because i'm only 13, but my social studies teacher always calls me Miss. Harris. It gets so annoying because i'm the only person he does that too. Some people say that it's from respect, maybe it's because my dad's an injured and retired veteran, BUT I HATE IT!! He calls my name...

    Something about my last name... People just cant seem to get it right.. "Ox" "Oxygen" "Oxycotin" Those are just a few ways people have pronounced my last name. I am Native American so most people do have that last name but still.. I really do hate my last name..

    To me it just sounds extremely masculine.

    Also, people call me Dunkin' donuts, which is effing stupid and pretty immature.

    Zawadski. It's apparently hard

    for other people to pronounce or spell. So many times my last name has been mispronounced, even at my High School graduation in front of everybody.

    It's Not Who I Am. I Wasn't Born With His Last Name Why Do I Have To Use It?

    I hate his last name! I am me and I want to use my name not someone elses. It should not be forced upon me like this! Then if we do divorce I have to pay at least 150.00 to be able to use my maiden name legally. It's not fair, not right, it seems unjust to me. Sounds like a...

    Always! Oh, How I Do!

    My mom gave it to me because that was her name at the time. The name of the man she married. A man who beat her. She would go to work with bruises, wear long sweaters. She met my real dad at that job. He saw the bruises. I think by that time, they were divorced. But he was...

    Quinones. It's annoying.

    I hate telling *most* people how to pronounce it. I've been doing it all my life, I'm at the point where I just let them pronounce however they want. -_- It's also a bit annoying telling people how to spell it. It's spelled exactly how it sounds, it's not complicated.

    I hate my last name. The only reason I hate it, is because I am constantly the target of being teased, and picked on because of it. Yes- I have heard the name more than once. But sometimes I get fed up of being the center of attention for such a childish reason. There...
