As a person with a name that is unfamiliar to many people, I understand why its hard to pronounce it the first few (or many) times. Most people are very polite about it, but, just in case, I’ve compiled this handy little list of substitutions for the next time someone addresses me.

  1. You there
  2. Friend
  3. Buddy
  4. Kid
  5. Kiddo
  6. Chum
  7. My colleague
  8. Girl
  9. Gal
  10. Mate
  11. Pard’ner
  12. Pal
  13. Soul sister
  14. Dude
  15. Bro
  16. Brah
  17. Pumpkin
  18. My Liege
  19. Valued customer
  20. *mumble mumble*
  21. *cough*

…or you could just ask 🙂
