QotD: Repeat After Me…

How have people mispronounced your name?  How is it supposed to sound? 
Submitted by Lorie.   

All the fracking time!  I'm not going to post how to pronounce it here because I have shielded my identity.  Suffice it to say, my last name is only two syllables, not three, and my home voicemail/answering machine message is "Hi, you've reached (my phone number).  If you can properly pronounce my name, please feel free to leave a message, otherwise have a nice day."  That's done in a really friendly tone, but it really cuts down on the people who shouldn't be leaving a message.
