My name is Luke, which is pretty easy to spell. Unfortunately for my barista she thinks my name is Lufe. Seriously??? :p
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.

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 said: 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 said: 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
