autumn, like the season

So, I love my name, but have constantly had to remind people what it is.  I've discovered that giving someone something to link it to has helped.  It started when I was a server at a local restaurant and greeted my tables with "Hi, my name is Autumn, like the Season, and I will be your server tonight."  It seemed to work and I was no longer getting the "Amber"s and "April"s.  I didn't have to correct people with an embarrassed giggle.  It just worked and still does.
