If it makes you feel better I pronounced the city in Montana wrong for quite a few years growing up.

I can remember Helena with no problem. Can't make any promises about Elaine, but I promise not to call you Irene. I'm laughing because I have 2 sisters, and our names all start with M. It could get pretty comical around my house, especially when my Dad was mad at one or more of us. He would finally just resort to numbers since he could remember which one was the oldest, etc.

I truly respond to Helena or Elaine or any of my many nicknames out there, it's all good. I even respond to Helen though I give side eyes when people do that

Your dad cracks me up with the numbers. While my siblings' names are nothing like mine, I would just be called the 2 older ones until they came to me. Some teachers did that too. So I even respond to names nothing like mine now

My dad used to run through our names, as well as the dog's.

Sadly, I've continued the tradition. But in my defense, I've had the dogs longer than my DDs, so I was used to yelling their names.

It amazes me that people name kids with the same letters. My wife has a sister & 2 brothers, All start with the letter 'D' (so when I write DW, that always makes me think of my brother in law - that's what everyone calls him). Also, the middle initials are in alphabetical order. To me, that's just confusing.
