Liked The Sound of Myย Name by Pernille Ripp (Pernille Ripp)
As we look at our incoming students and the names that they carry, I feel the importance of the correct pronunciation. How their names carry their history. How their names carry the hopes that their parents grew as they blessed their new baby with a way to be known to the world. How because I gave up on correcting people, I will forever be known as something that my mother didnโ€™t intend. How even when my husband tells me he loves me my name is not completely correct. How my own children donโ€™t know how to say it the right way because their American tongues get in the way. And I chose to live with that. Too late to make a difference now.
