My Name
« on: January 16, 2018, 01:35:08 PM »
When I was a kid, I truly hated to be called Jenny, still do. It isn't my name or close to it. My grandparents still call me that, even after I asked them to call me by my real name. I have tried to make it my own by Gen, making sure they know the G is present. Jennifer and Jenna aren't me. In the past, saying my full name was almost embarrassing, fear of questions, accusation, and it being mispronounced. My name is my pride and my secret for my closest friends and family. Whenever someone learns it and says it correctly, I get a giddy surprise that they cared that much for me to get it right. It isn't all of me, but only a piece. Something I was born with and plan to die with.

Is the "G" pronounced like "gif" or "gif"?
