I got called Eleanor for almost a year because I sat in the same seat as another girl in the year below, in ICT.
We have differently coloured hair and eyes, and she doesn't wear glasses.
How could the teacher mix us up? Surely there were people in other classes sitting there as well!

However, within my family I answer to pretty much any name directed at me, because the women in my family are terrible with names, so all us girls know that our names are interchangeable. The name I get most is Karen. Occassionally I even have to answer to my brother's name, but this is rare, and swiftly corrected when it does occur.
One of my friends is so bad with names that what I hear most often from her is, "Hannah-Cassie-Jackie-fish-dog-rabbit-NICKY!" At home I will answer to the name of anyone in the family, even if they're not in the room.
