My name is Cinthia and I constantly get comments on the spelling of it. Its always really funny when someone needs to write my name down and the memorized script goes a little like this: "My name is Cinthia... *they start writing it down and before they get to the "y"*... with an 'i' not a 'y'" Its always really funny seeing the reaction on their faces.
Basically similar but with "z", in Italy.
