Because I know you're not just asking out of curiosity (and Ms. Manness, if you're reading this, sorry that I started a sentence with a preposition).
Or, at the very least, it will take several hours longer than if you did the decent thing and gave me a little context.
From that guy who you still can't figure out how he has your cellphone number. But sure, maybe he just wants to be friendly. We can all use more friends, right?
But my name is Danai. D-A-N-A-I.
Not cutie, sweetheart, angel, dear, sexy, or anything else - I don't know you, you don't have a pet name for me. And I can double check with my parents, if that's really necessary, but I'm pretty sure they didn't accidentally write 'Cutie' on my birth certificate.
There are some people whose names make me wonder if it was a sober birth, but my name is (luckily) not among those. By the way, thanks mom and dad.
