Depending on your American accent, some people might have trouble understanding you. It took me months to realize everyone thought my name (Ann) was "Ian" because I pronounce it with a little bit of an Oklahoma drawl. I convert the otherwise monosyllabic Ann into Ah-yuh-nn which thus becomes the oh-so-masculine Ian in British speak. Who knew?
