I'll admit this is an oddball thing, but there's a website for teachers which lets students hear how authors pronounce their names. The authors can also tell little stories about their names--so I did. You can even have the dubious pleasure of hearing me sing, since my name comes from an old song. Here's my Kate link! (The picture to the left is me as a first grader.)
I would note that you can then browse the site to hear about other authors and their names... kind of fun! Actually, the whole site, TeachingBooks, is a nice resource for finding out more about authors.
