"MY NAME IS DEANA AND ALTHOUGH I GET CALLED EVERYTHING ELSE I LOVE MY NAME. I WAS ALSO NAMED AFTER SOMEONE NAMED DEAN, I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT IS SO HARD TO PRONOUNCE." Jan. 17, 2009:
"I like my name but many people pronounce it "Deanna". I only correct them if this is someone that I'll have to deal with more than once. I was named after my dad, Dean. I had a friend in high school that spelled her name like mine and was also named after her dad. I think the spelling, "Deena" would be better if you don't want others to constantly say your name incorrectly." Jun. 14, 2006:
"I Love that my name is so uncommon, however I have faced my whole life with people pronouncing it wrong. I gave up correcting people when I was in grade school." Jun. 12, 2005:

"I like being somewhat unique, and was named after my grandmother; but agree that it's tiresome always being spelled and pronounced wrong. Ironically, my grandmother was originally spelled Dina or Dinah; but changed it because it was pronounced wrong." Feb. 8, 2019:
"This is my name too. I agree with all pronunciation issues. I so wish my mother had spelled it Deena. I'm really not a fan of Deanna so it's kind of a bummer hearing it pronounced this way time and again!" Jun. 2, 2015:
"I'm named after my grandmother, Dean. I've been called every thing from "Dana" to "Dianna." It amazes me. This bothers me most when receiving recognition for a job well done or when someone continues to mispronounce my name even after I've corrected them. I got to where I would place (Dee-NAH) next to my name when possible." Nov. 23, 2010:
"I'm also a Deana. It gets frustrating when people think you don't know how to spell your own name. I've been called Dianna more than once. I agree with spelling it either "Deena" or "Dena" if you like this name." May. 6, 2007:
"After years of telling people that "it's like Dean with an A" I finally thought of a better way to explain how to pronounce my name - "Dean is to Deana as Paul is to Paula."" Jul. 13, 2006:
