But it's my NAME!

There is a trope that I think needs to die in a huge fire. It's the I don't like your given name, here's a nickname,  I know you hate it but just accept it because I'm male, usually this is shortly after the woman is married and has to deal with a change of name anywa, often being addressed as Mrs his first name and surname, and her last private posession is ripped from her and trivialise,  this isn't just a pet name this is mean. And it's endemic in romance novels and authors have got to stop it.
