  • "My name is Sawyer,and I happen to be a girl. Also,being raised in Oklahoma I find it mispronounced a lot. My mother pronounced it 'Soy-er' and many people choose to say it as 'Saw-yer' instead. I think it's rude to try and tell me how my name is pronounced,but whatever. Also I hate the sudden spike in my name's popularity. I know two boys from the same town as me whom are much younger,and they've both been named Sawyer after their parents heard my name." Feb. 15, 2011: Report as inappropriate
