    Depends how i introduce myself! If i say Pip everyone says 'huh?' and if i say 'philippa' then people call me jennifer. It is annoying.

    My baby is going to be called Isabella, and there is no way people who mis-hear that... right?!

    When I first set up a bank account, the bank came into my school and we all sat with a bank worker wilst they filled in forms....yet I still had cheque books, paying in books and statements sent to "MR Leigh Bailey".....how offensive :| Also get called Lynn alot, or Lea, sometimes I just let them do that...its different hahaha! My last job I was known as Lea by half of the kitchen staff... :D

    Dizzy I'm a Lindsay as well and nobody gets it - Linda, Lisa, Lucy, Lesley.... and nobody spells it right either (including you :rofl:!!!)

    This is part of the reason Harry is a Harry but I wanted him to be Bailey as well - it's a gorgeous name for boys OR girls - and it really suits your LO Sam. xxx
