My name

IS my name that hard to pronounce and understand. For those whodont know me its Shauli (pronounced shoe-lee, or ryhmes with Julie) anyway seems like everytime I recieve a callback from soemone who IO left a message for (work related) they cant even begin to pronounce my name. I know what you're thinking, that I speak to fast or slur my speech. but I don't, i say my name slow, and i REPEAT IT!! if this keeps up I just may have to chnage my name..any good ideas?

Most people with use an "American" sounding one sylabal name. You could go by Shaul (pronaunced shawl) or, just deal with the Shoooleee

You could go by Saul or Mo. Zack is a good one but what if they ask for your last name. Zack Zacks? Or you could be Zack Shauli. People seem to have an easier time with weird last names. Maybe they will think you are Asian. Zack Shoo Lee.

As you should. How about if they can't pronounce your name, just tell them to call you Superman? No? Then, just S or S-man. I've had plenty of problems with people mispronouncing my name in the States. I just keep repeating the correction. If they can't get it right, I say that I'm sorry the person they're looking for isn't home or doesn't live here and to call back later. Caller ID is a wonderful thing.

sorry but I am just reminded of rockin' out in RTV-08-00 to SHU SHU SHAULI-O!!

I don't think I ever had a hard time saying your name. It's snazzy.

I would say go by a middle name but I dunno what it is or if you have one.

OR just pick a celebrity name...that's what they do when you get seated at red robin...they give you a celeb name and when that's called you get a table.

When I meet people in person, they have no problem with my name, just over the phone. Of course you didnt have a problem with my name, its ryhmes with yours.

Great songs RTV 8 rocks
