After Ty Ma started his new job as a financial analyst at a mid-size insurance company, he ran into a situation that happens to him frequently: a co-worker constantly over pronounces his name.

“The human resources lady kept calling me Tire Moana when she was introducing me to people,” sighed Ma. “I corrected her several times, but it didn’t seem to matter. I don’t get it because…”
