People with names that are uncommon often deal with the struggle of others constantly mispronouncing their name. Some have conceded to using nicknames in place of their real names to make it easier on others and less burdensome on themselves.

Here & Now host Deepa Fernandes speaks with Callum Borchers, opinion columnist for The Wall Street Journal, on this shift in mentality.
