Give your daughters difficult names. Give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. My name makes you want to tell me the truth. My name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.
When people have trouble with my name, fine. Some people may be unfamiliar with it. But when somebody struggles with my name, then awkwardly asks me if I have a nickname, I lose respect for them. My name is two syllables, and it’s pronounced exactly as it’s spelled. If you can’t take that kind of effort to learn my name, I don’t trust you. (via sirfazal)
