I have quite a simple name and have never really had a problem with people pronouncing Martin incorrectly but I can completely understand how annoying it must be if your name is a bit more complex or not a common name, it is also a bit embarrassing trying to phonetically murder someone’s name, so Linkedin have released a new feature to help.

You can now record an audio clip of the pronunciation of your name and store that on your profile so now there are no more excuses.
