Option 3 is quite awkward in my opinion. And when you work with people from all across the globe, you have to be ready to mispronounce their names as well, it's just part of meeting new people

@rubenwolff I understand your opinion. And, it's acceptable if someone mispronounces a couple of times but it's disrespectful when they don't even try to learn.

@tapsi It's sad but I look at it on the bright side, people accidentally compliment me without knowing 😂

Most of the people can't pronounce my name correctly, so i always go by alias or an incorrect pronunciation that sounds close enough 😅
