Many of our favorite celebrities have super easy, straight forward, and easy to pronounce names.
Others, however, do not.
Never Have I Ever’s Maitreyi Ramakrishnan recently spoke about the mispronunciation of her name.
“Names are so important, and I find that it’s a big part of your identity — it personally is for me. I love my name so, so much. And constantly, I get people saying, ‘Oh, you don’t even know how to say your own name right.’ It’s like, ‘No, no, no, I do. I do know how to say my own name right,’” she shared in a voice note. “Because the reality is, no one knows how to say someone else’s name except for the person themselves, you know? Like, this is my name. I’m sorry, but I get to call the shots here. There is one answer and that answer is my own. There’s no discussion for that.”
As our favorite celebs, we owe it to them to get their names right.
