After several interactions over the past few weeks, I feel it necessary to make this announcement once again. . .
MY LEGAL FIRST NAME IS ANNIE.
MY LEGAL LAST NAME IS ANDERSON.
Those who’ve known me for more than 20 years may find it a bit of a challenge to call me Annie but I implore you to try harder. Most of you called me Annie when I was a kid anyway so it really should not be difficult.
Please refrain from calling me LeAnne. Do not introduce me to others using that name. Don’t write it on Christmas cards and birthday greetings, etc. It is no longer my name.
I do not, and will not, answer to it as I legally changed my name several years back to Annie since it’s what everyone has called me for my entire life anyway and I much prefer it.
