Our daughters, who drink cocoa a lot, have individually named cups as well. Even strangers in your home would be cautious to use a cup that is so individualized, at least in my experience.
I know I have heard your first name before, but it escapes me now...but regardless...because this might apply to other reading this reply...if you have a name that is rather uncommon, perhaps a local pottery shop could custom make one with your name upon it. I would not think the cost would be too expensive. Or, you could work with online photo printing places to have a custom mug made wit your unique name.
May I re-word what you said to, "how do we keep things flexible in guest situations to meet the needs of all types of people?"
Do we insist that everyone brings their own mugs? I have been in places like that, but it's stressful and not everyone feels the need to be restricted to the one mug (aka, they use mine!).
