i get called FRANK all the time. It really annoys me! When I was doing my training for Berlitz, I sat next to a Frank, so everyone was screwing our names up!

i second tom/tim also, it’s not a mixup, per se, but “mom” unfortunately sounds a lot like “tom”

I used to turn my head when I thought I heard “Tom” and someone was saying “Mom” … now I just ignore everyeone. The “ah” vowel appears in a lot of words and I swear I hear my name called out many times a day.

my co-worker keeps having folks call her Stacey – – her real name is Tracey. i’ve been called katrina and catherine before. my name is kristina. though, there’s always people who create a nickname for your name that is not quite what I like. it’s like they understand your name, but have altered it ever so slightly. hard on the ears. krissy, kristi, kristine, tina, stina,
