My first name's Elana. If you're not sure how to pronounce it, you can listen to me introduce myself on any number of recorded talks: https://hashman.ca/talks/
@ehashman as one living in a country where natives can't really pronounce my name even when they want to (due to different phonetics in Russian) I was never bothered by it. The way I see it, there is no such thing as a "correct" pronunciation. As long as I can recognize the fact that people try to address me, it's fine. I don't sound exactly American either.
