!!!!!!! You worded that very well. My thoughts exactly.
I correct every time. Ppl always misspell my name. And unles they are my boss I correct every single time. Ppl will take my sons name and call him Nick instead of Nickolas. I correct them bc his dad goes by nick he likes to be called nickolas
My youngest daughter's name is Isla and I get a lot of Is la and eese la. I will normally correct them. At the dr. they kept saying it wrong and then correcting themselves when they remembered.
I usually get Da-Vaughn, for Devon. It's DEV-IN.
But no one ever mispronounces Evan.

Like this. But ah not ih.
My daughter's name is Alessa (uh-less-uh) and people pronounce is as Alyssa all the time. If it is someone she sees often, I correct them.
