I vaguely recall there being an evil youth gang in the movie  
adaptation of "Mystery Men" called the Suzies...

Tell them you're considering Suing them for defamation.

At least you never had to deal with the combination of that first  
name with the surname of "Wong", and the inevitable consequences.

"Hello, Suzy, how's it going?"
"I'm doing great, but if you don't mind, it's Susan. How about you?"
"Oh, sorry, Suzy. Susan."
"I'm sorry too, I'm a little sensitive about being called Sue or  
Suzy. Sue is my mother, and Susan is an anglicized form of my Chinese  
name, taken from Dr. Sun Yat-sen..."
"Okay, Suzy."
"Boy, that Suzy Wong is touchy..."
