My nn for Jacqueline has always been Jackie. I've kept it all these years, mostly because it was never misspelled.
(I actually prefer Jacquie, which was my father's pet name for me.)
Recently, however, I had a co-worker repeatedly write my name down as Jacky (really?), even though my name was spelled Jackie on just about every other document. Then a clerk at a national retail chain decided to spell my name as Jacki, even after she had me spell out Jackie for her. I now receive mail addressed to Jacki-with-an-i.
I don't know which one is worse!
Elderly folk commonly hear Cathy instead of Jackie when being introduced. When I used to work in a nursing home, I would often need to repeat my name, and then add "like Jackie Kennedy"for clarity.
One day I explained to a little old man that my name was Jackie-like-Jackie-Kennedy.
He looked at me and said, "well, you're nothing like Jackie Kennedy".
So in my mind I assumed the worse and thought that he meant I had zero class. Then the old man said to me
"She's dead." :)
