That’s not my name.

Hello, my name is Suzanne.

Not Susan.

Not Sue.

If you ask me my name, and I say “Suzanne”….please don’t write or say “Susan” three seconds later.

That is not even close.

This happens with hostesses at restaurants,  Dr.’s offices, the drycleaner, my chauffeur mechanic; almost everywhere.

Is Suzanne that hard to say? That hard to spell?

For now on, I am going with my alter ego.

Just call me Suz Madonna.

 

Oh, and I love this song so much it makes my toes wiggle and my butt jiggle.

Thats NOT MY name.

XO

Suz Madonna

  3. Do you think it's the extra syllable that gets them? Maybe you could simplify (for the public) and go by \”Soo\” or \”Suz\” and let them off the hook with the \”anne.\” It's obviously too regal for everyday life. =) You could also try, \”Suzanne, as in Pleshette\” – or would that only work with those over 40 who had watched the Bob Newhart show?I love your name – it's very Francais!

  6. I get it. I am Terra not Tara. And Yes I have heard that my name means Earth in Latin and yes 5000 people have said to me \”oh, like in gone with the wind\” and well…when they get it wrong, say it wrong, spell it wrong…I quit correcting them because I figure if they don't get they don't know me and if they don't me…who cares!!!

  7. Bwhaha. My daughters name suffers in the same way. When I corrected the girl at the chiropractors office yesterday her 12 year old response \”You can do that\”. I'm with you, please be courteous…don't go nick naming me until we are buds!
