Your name is What? ideogram

Since no one ever knows how to say my name properly the first time, I’ve been playing around with the idea of making personal business cards with the pictogram of my name on one side, and all my activities and services on the other. I dunno. It’s fun to think about.

How do you say my name?

Bin-EYE-uh-bee. Or maybe bih-NYE-uh-bee would be more accurate, but more difficult to draw. Not gonna lie, I can tell when I’ve met someone in person based on the way they pronounce my name. If they get it right, then I know they must know me or someone I know taught them. Pretty nice filtering mechanism if you ask me!
