When individuals meet someone it’s their name that are being asked to know each other. Therefore, name is the identity of individuals. However, wrong pronunciation is a common issue when an individual communicates with the person outside his own culture. For instance, in the article various names are mentioned which were mispronounced by people. America is a diverse nation where people from all around the world come and live for education, jobs and to settle down. With vast diversity when a person hears name from other culture, he finds it difficult to pronounce even it is the small name like Maz. It is the common phenomenon that people relate words with the known things to remember like Maz turned into Mez and Tasneem changes into Tazneem or Taasneem. People do not make mistake intentionally. People who try to correct name are not mean or rude, only thing they want is the right pronunciation.
I got a Muslim name "Mariam ". It's an Arabic name came from the name of prophet Isa's mother Mariam. In Christianity, they name her Mary. When people from other culture or non-Muslim background call my name they often call me as Meriam, Mariana, Mero. They try to relate it with the word they are familiar with like from Mary they make my name Meriam. Therefore, to teach people my name I can use the word like Mar from mars, E, and Yum so it becomes Mariam. However, sometimes it can be only useful for me not for others to learn. People cannot change their name or correct other, therefore, it is better to welcome a new name that people want to give. This is because of the feeling of truthiness and frankness that decrease when people find difficult to speak the name. In addition, research indicates that people with non-American name acquire fewer chances to get the job as decision-makers give preference to the name that is easier to pronounce.
