My neighbor calls me On-dray-ah and I corrected her a dozen times, but she still does it, and when she introduces me to people she uses that pronunciation, so now all her friends use it, too. I gave up.

I love Persephone! I think it's beautiful and sophisticated. What about Penelope as an alternative?

I like Penelope...I just don't want to be told I copied kourtney k on her daughters name. Because I KNOW people will think that.

I barely bother correcting people anymore, or just go by Drea. I actually dread telling people my name because they never get it right anyway. Just give me whatever name you think I look like, people.

Blah - screw her. I like a few names celebrities have used, I wouldn't let it stop you. Besides, it HAS jumped up the popularity list quite a bit the past year or so, so it's not like Penelope K is the only baby Penelope out there right now. It's on our potential short list, too.

I love Andrea pronounced the way you do! If it makes you feel better, I would remember lol. I'm Cassandra - kah-sand-ra, not kah-sahn-dra and people never get it right. Whats worse is I go by Cassie most of the time and people always call me Casey, Cassidy.....my own grandfather called me freakin Katie lol.
