Add me to the list of people with a lifetime of having their name mispronounced! I don't even bother correcting people anymore, if it's someone that is just a "one-off" who I'm unlikely to ever see again.
My name is Alaina (pronounced Ah-Lane-A). I often get Elaina (don't understand at all, how do you confuse "ah" with "ee"?) or Alana (again, hard time understanding this one, there is an "I" in my name that clearly means something - or maybe that's just the grammar Nazi in me
