What's in a Name?

What name do people mistake your name for the most?

I often get called Stephanie. ARG! Steph is a name I chose for myself, and I meant it to be androgynous, not a diminutive of a name that’s more feminine than my actual name, damn it. I chose Steph because it’s what my parents were going to name me if I’d been born male.

Please don’t call me Stephanie! Please don’t presume to know better than I what my name is. If I tell you my name is Steph, please call me Steph. I actually prefer Kaye, which is a diminutive of my middle name, but that was long ago, before I considered having a nom de plume. One day in the not-to-distant future I'm going back to Kaye so I can avoid all this crap.

But back to you. Your turn to answer the question.
