  • There’s nothing more personal than your own name. And when someone mispronounces it, it doesn’t feel right. But when your name is mispronounced almost every day, it gets really frustrating that many people don’t seem to have the common decency to make sure they’re saying your own name correctly. On this episode of Decoded, we talked to some people who have first-hand experience with the everyday battle of getting people to just say your actual name!
