I also tried to bring my girls up calling adults by their
title and last name, although title-and-first name was
occasionally acceptable.  Aunts and Uncles were always Aunt
Eve, Uncle Bruce, etc.  The people who gave me fits were the
*teachers* who encouraged their *students* to call them by
their first names. Wreaked havoc, that did.

My first name is not a family name, I think it just seemed a
good companion to go with "Barbara" when we turned out to be
twins.  ;-)

Then you have to consider the people who legally change their names.
I was "Lara" (lahrah) until I was 18 and legally changed my name to
"Larisa" (lahrihsuh).  Well, now that I am 37, I have people that call
me:
Lara (lahrah)
Laura (lorah)
Larisa (lahrihsuh)
Risa (reesuh)
Mom
Momma
Larisa-Rose (what my name was legally changed to, but when I got
married, I dropped the hyphenated first name, taking Rose as a middle
name)

I just learned to answer to them all....those that knew me before the
name change are the ones that call me Lara, those that don't know me
at all call me Laura, those I've met since I changed my name call me
Larisa, hubby calls me Risa, DS calls me Mom, DD calls me Momma, and
idiots call me Larisa-Rose.....:-)....well, idiots meaning
telemarketers, political compaigners, total strangers....oh, well, and
my former college professors since that *was* legally my name at the
time.

Larisa

I legally changed my last name from "Brown" to "Ickes" 49
years ago.  Made it very easy to tell when telemarketers
used to call, no one ever knows how to pronounce "Ickes" as
we do in the western U.S. " ICK-ess"  It's amazing how many
people throw an "L" in there.

Well, now that you bring it up, I've also been called Mom,
MOM!!!, Mommy, Sweetheart, Darling, and "*$&^%#*^".

For some years now, I have thought my name was "What?" because that's
how my husband has addressed me since his hearing started going.

LOL!  I'll have to share that with my kids.  They seem to
think a hearing aid will solve everything.  I have been
tested and there is definitely some loss around the higher
registers, but  trouble is, I don't think amplifying all
sound will tune out the tinnitus.  :-(

Re: It's "Beverly"!


Beverly, I think I will forward your note to my children because they think
I should buy a hearing aid.

Emily, I'm sure every case is different.  I hope you have
been evaluated by an otolaryngologist.

In my case the hearing loss is not quite severe enough yet
to justify the expense of a hearing aid, and since I live
alone I can crank the TV up as far as necessary to hear most
of the dialog on shows I watch.  We bought my Father one of
those wireless-to-earphones TV gadgets when he was living
with us, I suppose if I ever want to watch something with
company again, I'll have to look into one for me.  :-(  Or a
hearing aid....

Re: It's "Beverly"!


No, I haven't yet; the ear specialist I saw last month seemed to be more
interested in selling me a hearing aie than actually treating the problem.
When I saw my regular doctor, he gave me a prescription for a corti-steroid.
He seems to think my entire system is/was infected, ears, nose, throat and
eyes.  I am taking the medicine and hopefully, it'll be cleared up by the
time I see him again.

Husband went to see doctor because he thought his wife was losing her
hearing.

Doctor thought for a minute and said 'Try a little experiment. Stand a
little way behind your wife and quietly ask a question. If she answers
you'll know her hearing is OK, if not move a little closer and try again'.

Husband goes home and stands behind his wife and asks quietly 'What's for
dinner?'

He gets no answer and moves closer and asks again 'What's for dinner?'.

He gets no answer and moves until he's just a couple of feet behind her.
'What's for dinner?'

His wife turn round and yells at him 'For the third time, it's chicken!'


Made me chuckle when I first heard it and reading your comments just
brought it to mind. :-)

Richard, thank you!!!  I am feeling a little blue over

your little story made me laugh.  I'm just glad I wasn't

Esteemed Beverly,

You may call me Joanne, Pogonip, or Jo.  For reasons I will not address
here, you may also call me Kelley or Mac.  Please do not call me Joan.

I will continue to address you as Beverly, or as Your Highness.

Sincerely,

Jo
