I was named after the eponymous character in Christopher Pike's book "Sati". It was about a girl who thought she was God, so in high school my name was treated with a mixture of scorn and awe. Teenagers couldn't decide whether it was stupid or really cool.
I went to a college in a predominantly Asian (Indian / Pakistani / Bangladeshi) part of London, and Asian - especially Hindu - friends were uncomfortable saying my name. They all gave me nicknames. I don't know if they thought it was sacrilegious (Sati was a Hindu goddess) or just "not done". Nobody was ever mean about it, but they reacted much the same way that English and American people do when they meet Spanish or Hispanic boys named Jesus.
Nobody can EVER pronounce it. Usually people think it's Sadie.
Ex-boyfriends call me Satan a lot. I don't know if it's the name, or a reflection on my personality.
