I go by [my first name]-sensei, which is an easy, one-syllable name that the kids and my coworkers and neighbors can all say and remember easily. The last thing I would ever want is for my kids to avoid talking to me 'cause they had difficulty addressing me properly.
I would say we may be cousins with a name like that, but I didn't see enough J's in your name for it to be anything but coincidence.
But in all seriousness, as a person who has silent j's in odd places in their name, at 90% of my schools they just call me Mike-sensei or Mr. Mike. One school calls me by my last name, and it is mostly the result of sheer gumption on the part of my supervisor there to learn by name correctly, haha.
