What’s in a Name?

For as long as I can remember, I have known the importance of pronouncing and spelling a person’s name correctly. Sadly, people who should know better do not exercise the care they should in this regard. These include many prominent television broadcasters and myriad government officials. Some of them are even more pathetic in that they pronounce the same name multiple ways within a single sound bite.

I wonder if it bothers them.

I am a veteran graphic designer who started at the time when cut and paste meant an X-acto knife and rubber cement. I use my experience to educate others. I have an intolerance for ignorance and stupidity.
