My last name is an actual word in the English language and it is mispronounced often.

Not sure why. I could understand if English was not their first language, but in most cases it is.

On a similar note some company we dealt with (I think for phone service) abbreviated Robert as Robt. I would get calls asking for Robt. Not sure if they wee pronouncing it correctly or not, but it often included the mispronunciation of my last name.

I am also often referred to as Mr. Jr. in both written messages and via phone. I am named after my father so I am a Junior" though I prefer *Full Name* the last.
