I deactivated Google Voice last week because the service usurped my voicemail and translated my messages to text (badly), yet these messages were for Kay, Karina, or Carol.
People often mistakenly hear my name as Carol. This isn’t just an accent issue, this happens to me in Australia, and the US.
Sometimes I just go along with it…sometimes I correct them and they don’t remember anyway…
I also know a Nick who’s known as Mick and a Matt known as Max.
How is your name misheard?
