"Thoughts From A Sleep Deprived Mind"



All my life I have had a problem with my name.  Dana.  Seems easy right?  Nope.  Rarely is it pronounced right…Day-nah is how it is usually pronounced.   My name is actually Dan-uh.  I know most of you don’t think it is a big deal and I just need to get over it.  But for me, if you miss-pronounce my name you might as well be calling me Debbie!
I bring this up now because I was at an event recently where nearly everyone called me Day-nah.  And these were people who should have known better!  What I find is that my family and friends tend to step in to correct people who do not pronounce my name correctly...so I don’t have to!  In fact, those who really know me, tend to get pretty insulted on my behalf!
That being said, I am as guilty as anyone of assuming that when I see the name Dana, it is pronounced Daynuh.  I just wish my mom had named me Lisa.
