I'm not Lisa, my name is Julie. Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Just a gripe. I always sign my real name at the bottom of a post in the beginning. In return I get so many variations of my name and some not even close. Oh I get it when Jessie Coulter sang the song...I'm not Lisa, my name is Julie. Lisa left you...

Im not Lisa. ;)
LePewsa.

Wait! need a question here... Does anyone else get this???

My maiden name was long and always mispronounced... A large reason why I got married and got rid of it.

I have a history of short names.... No one should screw up Lorie. lol I have signed myself as Lor. Lore and Lorie... never Lori, Lauri, Lourie. Ugh! Hate it when someone does not clue in to when I sign in Lorie. I am not talking one or two texts but dozens.

I have to try to remember to just say my name when meeting peoplle rather than "hi, I'm Alli". I get people saying a lot "Malli?". Its easier to hear if i say "I'm Allison". but i still get, "mallison?". what? who in the worls do you know named Mallison?

I do have a slight slur though sometimes so i undersand. So i just try to say "hi....alli".

It's really cute when german people say Alli. "alleee"

I was thinking more like David Allen Coe...



Well it was all that I could do to keep from crying
Sometimes it seems so useless to remain
But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even called me by my name

You don't have to call me Waylon Jennings
And you don't have to call me Charlie Pride
And you don't have to call me Merle Haggard anymore
Or even though you're on my fightin' side

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standin' in the rain
But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even called me by my name

Well I've heard my name a few times in your phone book
(Hello, hello)
And I've seen it on signs where I've played
But the only time I know I'll hear David Allan Coe
Is when Jesus has his final Judgment Day

So, I'll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standin' in the rain
But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even called me by my name

Well a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
And he told me it was the perfect country and western song
I wrote him back a letter and I told him it was not the
Perfect country and western song because he hadn't said
Anything at all about momma or trains or trucks or prison or gettin' drunk

Well he sat down and wrote another verse to this song
And he sent it to me and
After reading it I realized that my friend had written the
Perfect country and western song
And I felt obliged to include it on this album
The last verse goes like this here

Well I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in the pick-up truck
She got runned over by a damned old train

And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
And I never minded standin' in the rain
And you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even called me, well I wondered why you don't call me?
Why don't you ever call me by my name?

My last name is easy - yet always spelled wrong and so misfiled at offices.
My first name is long - and I get the same tired line nearly every time I tell someone it.
But no middle name parent unit powered out

^^^Is your screen name pronounced Weejah or Weejee, like in the board, or is it something different?
My last name is not pronounced as it's spelled, and anyone I meet who sees the name written out pronounces it differently. The comments that get me are: "Why would you spell your name it that way?" I guess I should've had a discussion with my parents about the spelling when I was born. Or, "Your name should be pronounced (such-and-such)." I tell them to go ahead and pronounce my name any way they want to. I don't care. I feel like telling them: "Your name is spelled s-t-u-p-i-d".

Wait...you're name is "phone"? is the "e" at the end silent?

People tend to get my name wrong b/c its the British spelling. As long as they don't call me "***hole", I guess i'm doing well (except in traffic, I can understand that). most of my life I went with some nickname or another. I figured it was their way of making me "Their's". it works out well as an adult with CRS, someone behind me in the crowd utters that nickname, and as I turn around, I go thru the mental Rolladex...hmm, if they used that nickname, they know me from summercamp, who did I know back there...got it.

I get other names all the time. I've never known why, my real names are both easy and obvious.

The weirdest one I get is David. An amazing number of people I deal with manage to call me that. One of my names starts with and E, the other with an M. Maybe I LOOK like a David?

I used to have people determined to call me Debbie - not my name. I don't think I look like a Debbie.. but to them I must have.
My first name is actually two names so once in a while I drop the second one. Lately I have gone back to using both names especially at work since there is someone else with my name. She tends to not return messages to vendors and customers. I have had annoyed managers email me asking why I ignored a vendor. Wrong "m" .. not me!
So to save my name and reputation, I use my given name all the time now

I go by Walter or my birth name.

The majority call me a-hole.


And the majority of the time,

I reply.

for some reason I have often been called Claire and it is nowhere near my real name. even my father nicknamed me that. Is it a past life thing? lol!! I like the name and it suits me and I often use it as an alternative. ..

Yah, I get this too. When I write to people through POF I sign with my real name but they call me Cyn when they reply. I'm like, 'did you think I signed my email with some random name I picked from a hat?'

Or, when I meet people IRL and tell them my name (which is traditionally a male name) they try to 'feminize' it by adding an 'a' or 'ie' to it. Ugh.

Like NJ, my maiden name was long and difficult to pronounce so I was most happy to give it up when I married and not take it back at the divorce. My last name, now, is spelled EXACTLY as pronounced but lots of people still ask 'is that one or two L's? or, 'is that with an 'a' or an 'i'?

So unless it's a legal document I've given up caring how they spell it.

Better than someone asking you where the john is
or if you have one or if it's in working order.
Somebody plugged up the john again!I guess its
better than loo(u)!

On another dating site with too many fake profiles I make up another name if they ask my name. My name is very French although I am Italian. Go figure that out.

Actually my favorite name story, a true one, is about one of my brothers.

Funny thing about our family, we seem to be genetically literal, which plays a part in this.

Anyway, as happens with most kids when they begin a school year, the teacher said "I see your name is William Charles. What do you want to be called?"

A logical and common question, from a teacher hoping to establish rapport with a new student.

But my brother, being of the genetic heritage he is, thought for a brief moment and answered factually:

"I'd like to be called Jonathan, but nobody ever calls me that."

She called a parent teachers meeting over that.
