I would correct them. Hardly anyone uses my name since I have a multitude of nicknames. I remember recently someone called me Mono (one of my nicknames) but we were having a really serious conversation. So I snapped and went "I have a bloody real name, you know!"

I don't want them to call me the wrong name so I correct them because one day they'll meet one of my friends who'll be like
"hey Thomas"
"I though you were George"

Option #3: ignore them.

I usually don't care but I've had patient's call me the wrong name and not bothered correcting them and gotten in trouble for it.

I can see why that's bad but yeah

My teacher called me by the wrong name yesterday and one of my classmates' name sounds just like mine, so I'm kinda used to being called by the wrong name...

My name is actually Brett but people mix it up with Brad, Brent, and even Bob... So I started going by Wally which is a shortened version of my last name, nobody has screwed that one up yet.

With my name being Denis, it's kind of hard to pronounce it wrong because it's the same as the usual name of Dennis.

Spelling though, Christ do I have to correct practically everyone. In case you're wondering, I'm named after my Irish grandfather, hence the unusual spelling.

My last name has given me the most facepalms growing up though, because of it's French origins. lol

Politely correct them, we've all been there. Plus I would rather be called Garret not carrot, or ferret.
