oh i would correct them without a doubt, it wont just be the staff but all her wee freinds and friends parents etc calling her the wrong name, definately nip it in the bud or it could stick with her through all her school years!
I would correct them. My daughters name is Emilia and nursery staff always write it as Amelia or Emelia. Now that shes learning to spell her name we had to speak to them as we didn't want her to learn to spell her name incorrectly.
i would correct them too,
OHs (ex OH now) family call her mango because they cant pronounce her name... its not that friggin difficult!!! they dont even try. her names Xanthia btw (pronounced Zanthia)...
its really not hard!!!!!!
they dont even try & it really gets to me so much to the point i stopped taking her to see them for a few weeks! xx
I'd correct them hun! I had to do the same at my LOs nursery a few times. Even though I'd written the pronounciation and repeated it a good few times the staff still didn't say it right, my LO has an irish name and the silent letters confused them. They were fine about me correcting them, in fact they looked like they felt a bit bad about it!
Imogen thinks her name is pronounced with the emphasis on the second syllable, so i-MO-gen, because thats what they say at her childminder (they're all Bulgarian). It's cute, but we sound like we're taking the P when we shout for her in the park.
i worked in day care and i've seen some children with names that were hard to pronounce,
it were names we didn't know to begin with and with troat sounds we don't have in our own language.
eventually the parents gave up on us ever being able to pronounce it correctly, but i tried really hard and i was pretty convinced i said it right
i even have it with a friend of mine now, she will say her name and if i repeat it i THINK i repeat it perfectly, yet she says "nooooo, not xxx, it's xxx"
honestly, i don't hear the difference lol
it's like saying "it's not emma, it's emma" haha
if it's a name that is normally not hard to pronounce, even if it isn't english, i'd definatly speak up
