Just be sure to roll your "R" with a lilt to it when saying Corazon. I don't blame you for detesting "Jonny", I would feel the same way if my name lent itself to that (it doesn't). In working with kids over the years when I am introduced to a kid that has a "Junior-ized" name like Johnny or Timmy, Billy or that sort of condescending name I will ask them in total seriousness if they would prefer me to call them by the "grown up" version of their name. Most every time they will say that the child version is "OK" and I will ask again which one they would prefer that I call them.
9 times out of 10 they will go for the "older" name and it makes them feel ten feet tall. Usually it is the first time they have been asked which they preferred.
