Patrizia Morena Di sciascio
That's some name huh? Italian in origin.
Funny and true story: Since I was a little kid and throughout my whole life I have been scribbling the phonetic spelling schematic of dee • sha • sho to help people pronounce my last name. You have no idea just how many pronunciations I have heard over the years. It's a pretty name to hear in Italian, but in English? Not so much. So 'Pa-t-RITZ-ia' got shortened to Patti, Morena got replaced by an 'M.' –And well, my last name became my brand and logo.
