    So then he yelled " okay Cementa! "

    My name has been messed up many times. Am I the only one this has happened to
    **** I don' t know if this is what the Lord is saying to you----Demelza is a name having to do with a fortress--- you are strong--- the name Jassmenta is a fragrant flower---you are sweet to the Lord--- the name Cements has to do with roots and protection---He is grounding you in His Word...

    Is Demi a nickname people call you by. Demelza is pretty easy to remember but i can see how it can be difficult for someone ppl to pronounce especially for old people.

    O-wayne is what an English speaker would say just using English Phonetics.. What we really need is a video of someone saying it the right way .

    You need to quit talking about me that way..... I prefer "seasoned" to "elderly"......

    People misunderstand my name over the phone all the time. I get called "Josh" about as much as my real name.

    The company I work for has customers that resell our product under their own moniker. One reseller of ours tries to maintain the appearance of having their own dedicated tech support, so they asked us to use a different phone number and different names for when their customers reach out to us. Guess which name I ended up with? Lol...

    No it has happened to me a few times . You would think how can you mess up Bill it's so simple,right ? Nope .
    It has happened mostly with folks that are unfamiliar with English . Here is one example that makes me laugh. A few years back when the wife and I were in Mexico visiting family. My wife was introducing me to a old friend of hers. She said she never met someone named Beal . My wife said it's Bill with a short i sound and the name was short for William she gets this look of recognition on her face and says Billiam . So even to this day some of the folks there call me Billiam . Ha ha ha
    Blessings
