My name is Asanka. Unique, yes, but not even close to what’s written on my cup.
"Hello Leana! My name is Leeanna. Is it pronounced like mine? Anna Not Aun-ah? ANyway! No one can spell my name, Star bucks has done it all. Leanna, Leeana, Leana, Leighanna, Leighanneah, Leeanne, Leanne, LeeAnna, LeAnna, LeeAnne. A lot along those lines :("
That’s exactly how I pronounce my name! My cup the other day was actually spelled as “Leeanna.” I feel your pain, girl.
Anonymous asked: Is it weird to get like your boyfriends nickname or something completely random on your starbucks cup? or will the Barista think its weird? I'm looking to surprise my boyfriend with a starbucks and want to get a name that will make him smile on it...
That’s actually adorable! And no, it’s not weird. I buy coffee for my boss all of the time, and I definitely don’t look like a “Jeff” or a “Zach.” ;) SO CUTE DO IT PLEASE! :D
Starbucks: That’s Not My Name
Anonymous asked: what is the correct spell of leana? liyana, leana, liana
It’s Leana! Rhymes with Banana. :) Lee-Anna
My name is Yisell, pronounced Jisell (the Y is supposed to sound like a J — it’s a Spanish thing). Not only does the dense barista at Starbucks spell my name wrong, apparently he thinks I’m an animal as well! Somehow when I said Yisell, he heard Gazelle. Those two words don’t even sound remotely the same. Needless to say, I grabbed my cup, gave him the side eye and walked away SMH. Sigh…
Anonymous asked: Hi Leana, (hope I'm spelling that right :D ) it seems like i didn't manage to post my pics correctly, is there anything that could be done from the admin's side in order to fix them up, or do I have to re-upload them again? Many Thanks , Bozhidar
I think you’ll have to upload the pictures again - I can’t find any way to fix that issue. :(
Right, so my birth name is Bozhidar(Bojidar in French), it has that tricky “zh” sound that occurs in French (and most Slavic languages for that matter )and everytime I try to order a nice cup of coffee I bump into one of those dumbass baristas that can’t get my name right.
Starbucks should really send their employees back to grammar school ! :D Just imagine one of those dark, cloudy, rainy days in London, you try to bring some happiness in your life with a cup of Starbucks and suddenly they misspell your name- it makes you even more depressed/miserable :D
I decided to go with Bogy ,they can get that right…( for now… :d). i might get quite a few misspellings, but at least i get some extra drawings with my coffee and winks from the chubby sweetie behind the cash register lol
My name is not Rebicd, who is even called that? My name is REBECCA. Not Robeka. Not Rubaka. Not Roberta. REBECCA.
