A Princess by Any Other Name

The Waterworld MermaidsToday over at the Waterworld Mermaid lagoon, I’m talking about name pronunciation…specifically, my own.

This has been a very harrowing six weeks, and having people call me by the wrong name for that long is possibly the reason for the migraine I’m currently having.

How badly has YOUR name ever been mangled? Tell me all about it HERE.

I’m often asked by friends if I’d rather go by “Alethea” or “Lee.” My answer: as long as you can pronounce “Alethea” correctly, it doesn’t matter.

I also answer to “Princess.”

People are always wondering how to say my name. Every so often, I have to make a post and remind them.

Thanks to clever Audacity and the fabulous microphone on my Powerbook, I can say it for you aloud so there is no misunderstanding. READY?!?

Say it with me: ALETHEA KONTIS

Now I’m going to stick this on my FAQs.

Hooray for technology!
