My birthname is Anna.
In Denmark, people can’t hear whether the last letter is an a or an e, so a lot of Danish people have adressed me as Anne. In my hometown in Norway, there were a lot of Arabic immigrants. Their version of the name is Hanna.
Now I live in a country with a lot of russian speakers, and they say Anya.
You’d think a name with only two different letters would be easy to get right but then again, that depends on what you think is right, I guess.
Even when I did chat support and my name automatically was next to every message I sent, half the clients called me Anne.
My chosen name, Miika, seems easier to get right. Sure, some people leave out the extra ‘i’, but I can understand that.
A few people have read it as Milka, but that’s the name of a chocolate I like, so that’s okay
Do yall have any troubles with your names?
