@Omega, it's pronounced Chai (as in chai tea) and Chester (as in the the common English name, or the name of Chester Cheetah)

Mateusz, it's the Polish version of Matthew.

It's just hilarious to listen to people trying to pronounce it, of all the nations I've met only the Slavics were capable of pronouncing it well as well as Russians. 

Germans and Dutch are quite close, but it's not perfect. Englishmen have some trouble and the French are just hilarious, not to mention the Spanish and Italians.

Want to see something even harder though?

This is my surname: ''Wajszczak'' Even the Polish spell it wrong from time to time, so it can be quite funny whenever the teacher reads the list for the 1st time.

For someone who has lived in different countries for hmm... almost 8 years  now (Time passes so quickly o_O) this, as you can guess, leads so some very silly stories.

(Also, I don't mind giving away my full name - it's not like I've got anything to hide  ;) )
Let me give this a shot: Ma-toosh Wahsh-chak probably botched that bad.

Anyway, my name is Roger Vanaman. Roger pronounced the English way, not the French way, I've had people have issues with my last name...but I can't figure out why.

Ah, okay.

I tend to read an i as "ee" instead of "ai", my fault.

Rafael.

Nothing really special.
Yet one of my favourite names... As well as several Leonardo... And Xavier... Is there even any Xaviers or people going by names related to Xavier here? .o.

My first name? Steve. It's...meh.  :|
;D Well... Steve is everyone. I lhave grown fond of the name, because it represents plenty of things in Machinae Supremacy's songs. They have Need for Steve and Super Steve tracks that are dedicated to Need for Speed and Super Mario respectively.

My first name is Tanja. It is pronounced the same as Tanya, though. Sometimes I wished I'd have something else, so there'd be nickname options, but in the end of the day I am fine and like it. I haven't met another Tanja of my age, even though it is not a rare name at all here.

POLO!

(I could not resist that, heh!)

My first name is Chris, named after my dad.  And, of course, I was born very close to the Christmas holiday---so it seems oddly appropriate.

Meh. If you look hard enough on the Internet, you could figure out my real name.

Benjamin-Jeremiah McKleptermierhausenkananinobergerdorfeschlegelsteinerhelgenermanjansen.

Just kidding.

I go by Rich in the real actual people world. No, I'm not actually named Wallace, although I'd prefer it if you called me that on this forum because it'd be super weird and confusing otherwise.

I actually really like my name because when I introduce myself, I just say, "Hi, I'm Rich."

-Wallace (Well, okay, ya got me.)

Wow. Not one Sara. (A highly popular name it seems still.) Admittedly it disgusts me that it's meaning is princess, in I believe, biblical Hebrew. Well it is in the bible. However - amusingly, its meaning is plate/bowl in Japanese and not used as a person's name. Besides who'd want to name their kid bowl!? ('HEY, BOWL! Don't make me come over there and give you a few cracks!' I can shatter the world with all these puns in my head already.) I usually sign artworks or written pieces as S.C.G. Or more commonly S.C. and full last name.

Jan Michael... I prefer to be called by my nickname though which is "L" mainly because my name is quite long and is pretty common...

The related question:  How many people here have found people with similar names seem to have similar personalities?

My best friend says she's found this to be true and can be like "That person looks like a Kevin."  I never quite understood it, myself, but find it quite interesting.
