"Name of the Game" Month - Firsties Week: First Day of School

Prompt: Dzintra

Source: Name of a contestant on Next Food Network Star


Dzinta sighed as, for the fourth time in as many class periods, she was forced to correct her teacher's pronunciation, "The 'd' is silent. Zintra."

The teenager frowned as the teacher said it again, and mispronounced her last name.The one good thing about a name that no one could pronounce, she thought, was that they would always remember who she was. Even if they never could say her name right.
