On Vox: QotD: Repeat After Me...

How have people mispronounced your name?  How is it supposed to sound? 
Submitted by Lorie.   

Well less mispronounciation and more "can't spell it for shit", I have a uber posh double barrel surname, but nobody can spell the bastard thing.  Worse was the DVLA sending me back my licence in the name of KEVIN WELFORD-COSTELLOS, to add to the horror that turned an 'E' in to an 'S' they put my year of birth down as 1943.  In the eyes of the DVLA I was a war baby, although I think the lack of elderly on my photo might have shown them something.
