Today, I've been living in Germany for several weeks now. My classmates still cannot pronounce my name: Clémence. Instead they call me, “Baguette.” FML

Clemens (the german version of your name) is pronounced quite similar, I highly doubt it is a matter of not being able to. I agree with #1, call them german food items of your choice in return.

As a German: Was? Wie? Wovon redest du? (What? How? What are you talking about?) Of course Germans have a W-sound. It's not a matter of people being unable to pronounce certain things anyway, it's a matter of people fucking with you.

Wienerschnitzel which is pronounced with a v instead of a w could be an example of the German language changing a w into a v sound.

Dude, thats austrian german- which is actually an independent dialect. Second off, the W in Wien (Vienna) is NOT pronounced like a V; if the was the case it would sound like 'Fien'.

Since they are behaving like tits, call them "tétons" and just pretend this is how "teutons "is pronounced. I also think your name is a lot easier to say than they Clem it to be.

Maybe it's cuz you're so cute that they would rather nickname you after a cute... something. *I have no idea what a baguette is. I hope it's not some kind of fish.

One of my friends has the same name as you but they go by Charlie. You could start calling them by German food names such as Bratwurst.
