I found this article
Some of you know my real name, and so you know that it's unusual. Growing up, you wouldn't believe the teasing I got from the other kids who couldn't pronounce it, couldn't spell it or didn't know what it meant, if anything. As an adult, I remember a phone call with a customer service agent who asked me for my name. I give it to her. She next says "spell it for me please." I spell it. Next she says "how do you pronounce it." Then she says "now what is your first name."
Hope nobody had as much trouble with their name as I did!
