She Stormed Out Because Her Brother’s Girlfriend Refused to Use Her Chosen Name – Now He Demands an Apology

A woman recently asked for advice after she stormed out on her brother because his girlfriend wouldn’t call her by her chosen name. Here’s what the woman had to say.

The Woman Hated Her Given Name

The 27-year-old woman’s official name is called Evangeline. She does not like her name at all and prefers to use a nickname derived from it. She does not go by Eve, Evie or Eva, or any similar variation of those names. She instead goes by Angie, and she always has done.

The woman said, “I go by Angie, and I’ve always gone by that. With the exception of doctor’s appointments and stuff that requires me to use my full name, I have always introduced myself as Angie, and I have never expressed a desire to be called anything else. Everyone knows me as Angie.”

Angie has a brother, who is 25, who has a 22-year-old girlfriend. Recently, the woman met her brother’s girlfriend for the first time when the three of them went to a coffee shop. She introduced herself to the woman as Angie, as did her brother.

For some reason, though, her brother’s girlfriend would not call her by the name she had requested to be known as.

“She kept calling me Eve or Eva or even Evangeline. I kept correcting her, just saying it is actually Angie, and I even said, with a smile, that I get that she is probably nervous and it’s always nerve-wracking meeting new people,” Angie continued.

She Found It Extremely Rude

The woman felt that it got to a point where she was correcting her brother’s girlfriend so much that she almost thought that she was doing it deliberately. It was something that she found particularly rude, as she feels it is common courtesy to respect someone enough to, at the very least, call them by their chosen name.

She Decided To Leave

As the day went on, it became apparent that the woman’s brother’s girlfriend would just not stop calling her by the wrong name. This really irked the woman, so much so that she eventually said she had to leave. She told the girlfriend that it was nice to meet her, apologized that she had to go, and went.

The woman’s brother is now extremely angry with her, saying he feels that she made it clear to both him and his girlfriend that she didn’t like his new partner. This resulted in his girlfriend’s feelings getting hurt and the woman’s brother wanting his sister to apologize to his partner.

In response, the woman told her brother that, quite frankly, she did not care about how his girlfriend felt. “What about me? I was there for like an hour, and she constantly kept calling me the wrong name, and it felt like I was being disrespected, so I left,” Angie complained.

Since the occasion, the brother has been telling Angie that she is a grown woman and that she needs to be mature and be able to deal with someone calling her by the wrong name.

The sister feels that, even if the girlfriend was nervous, there was no reason why the new woman couldn’t call her Angie, especially after she pointed it out on several separate occasions.

As such, the woman asked the internet whether she was in the wrong for how she reacted to her brother’s girlfriend and her inability to call her by her preferred name.

One user said, “You introduced yourself as Angie and showed her a lot of grace for her misnaming you for an entire hour.”

A second commented, “And it’s not like your name is unusual or difficult to say or to remember.”
