I am a Suzanne born in 1962. I am SO glad to hear other Suzanne's frustrations at people mispronouncing or misspelling my name! I was the only Suzanne through 12 years of school, I only met another Suzanne in college. Growing up I always thought I had a special name, since I was the only Suzanne I knew. My mother's middle name is Sue and she always said that's where she got it from. My parents and my husband call me Suzi sometimes. That's ok, I think of it as kind of a "pet"name from them. I have a couple of close friends that call me Suzi-Q sometimes. I HATE being called Susan. That is not my name. I never understood other's inability or refusal to pronounce my name correctly. I had a teacher in high school that refused to call me Suzanne, he always pronounced it "Susan", I think that's one of the reasons I dislike it so much. Even now if someone tries to call me Susan I will usually refuse to answer.
