Sienkiewicz. I don't even bother. Olimpia is a unique enough first name. Lol. But my life revolves around "how do you say that?!"

It bugs be becaues I had the name Katrina 22 years before that huricane struck so I feel like saying, "No, like the name derived from Kathrine." But at least it decreased the number of people who rename me, so I've come to terms with the comparison.

However, it only decreased the number of people who spell my name wrong. I still occasionally get Kathrine or Katarina to this day. Usually at Starbucks or Taco Bell. One person at Taco Bell got my name so wrong the server had to read out the number. I still don't know how that cashier heard K-a-t-h-a-l-i-e-n when I spelled out K-a-t-r-i-n-a for her. That's not even the right amount of letters. -_-
My 22 yr old daughter is named Katrina. She got teased lots when the Hurricane happened and asked me why would I name her that. I had no idea that a disaster would later be associated with her name. She likes her name again and has turned out to be a wonderful person.

My last name is Romero but people somehow miss the second r and pronounce it Romeo which drives me nuts. I had a friend years ago whose last name was Wojtkewicz, pronounced Wy ko its. Lol

Before I got remarried my last name was Kille. can anyone pronounce that one? this could be an interesting game. Pronounce the name correctly! LOL. Won't even go there on my first name. My parents were very very creative. And no it isn't Shirley teehee. Dramaqueen is the only one who knows that one. Shhhh DQ!

It's so annoying, right! Once I saw the male, I thought "Pluto" so I think I may name him that.. but girls can be so more difficult to name o.O
Also, she's pretty fat with eggs! gah :L

Red.. That's such a pretty colour..
Now I want one! :L

Your the winner with KILL-LEE. Most people pronounce it KILL. I had the nickname Killer at one job. I am so glad my new husbands name is simple like Harris. I went to the DMV when I bought a car a month ago and they misspelled that!
Only paid a buck for my solid red girl.
