Firstly, well done to the Mods for moving the comments that started this discussion out of the "I/K split" thread and into this new thread.
However, I was just wondering if you realised that those original comments are also still in the other thread...
Funnily enough, Jonathon's surname is one of the names I do not struggle with. But, there again, being a fan of motorbike racing, I am used to seeing Spanish names on a regular basis! The ones I struggle the most with are Tatjana V (which way round do the "z" and the "s" go?), Elena I (which way around do the "i" and the "y" go?) and the Lithuanian guy who we are currently discussing (which is ironic, given that my middle name is "David", the English version of his first name!)
For me, Stagniunas / Tobias had the potential to go on and get into the Top 10 in the World, which would be a great achievement for a small country like Lithuania. So, I am surprised that Deividas did not share that belief.
Oh well! His loss.
