My first name is Azzurra and I've discovered in Berlin that for Germans and for people of all around the world it is almost impossible to pronounce it properly. Even if annoying and sometimes also embarrassing, this is not a big problem. I mean, I can live with it for sure. It's part of being an expat, after all.
What I can't accept is that people actually write to me (SMS, Skype, you name it) or answer to my e-mails by writing my name wrong. Since my first name is part of my e-mail address, it should be not so difficult to write it right. I mean, how much time do you need to copy/paste a name?
I also discovered that I can't really like someone who doesn't invest five seconds of his time just to be sure to write my name properly. Why should I, after all? Would you, if you were on my shoes?
Just sing it! Sing what? But 'Azzurra', of course!
