    What name do you use when you order something at Starbucks or other coffee place? Real name? A shortform of it? Or, something totally different?

    Or, when giving a name at a restaurant to join the table waitlist, what name do you give?

    I usually give an American sounding Indian name. Anita, Samantha, or Brenda : )

    @Rihana , you can easily use your IL name, instead of Anita, Brenda, ;), they will be wanting to know more about rihana.
    I use real name, never occurred to me to change, may be because, mine is not that tough name to pronounce.

    With or without consonant? : )

    KF, naah.. visits to Starbucks are few for me. Have to use creative names, and a different one each time. : )

    MalStrom, you think a simple name cannot be mangled? I came across http://www.whatsmystarbucksname.com/ : ) Fun to try out different names.

    @MalStrom- You have nailed it:number_one:
    @Rihana- This is the most funniest topic with my DH and me.
    I can shorten my name enough to sound one syllable so I go with my name. However, even with all dicing and slicing my DH's name can never be one syllable so he goes with Max :roflmao:
    He uses his alternate name for Starbucks,Restaurants, craigslist.
