mis pronounce

Moog was not alone in having a name people couldn't pronounce properly. People called Håkon, Jiye, Michi, Elissa, Asa, Nara and Laszlo have each written on the web about going through life with people not knowing how to say their names. Some have resorted to publishing MP3 files of the correct pronunciation.

How are you spelling that?

A story I can relate to, as I have a name that is often mispronounced.
I got so used to the revised standard version that once I inadvertently introduced myself with the incorrect emphasis...(instead of emPHAsis).
