Separate names with a comma.

This one cracks me up everytime and i can't pronounce his name. Yet.
Because of where my place of employment is in Columbus, we have a diverse set of names. Lots of west African countries, Ghana, Siera Leone, etc. Lots of Nepal. I have 4 "Som"s, 6 "Haris" , 2 "Nkechi"s, 3 "Mahmoud " of different spellings, you get the idea. One guys name is "Nkathuakt....." only one I can't pronounce. It wont fit on a nametag in font greater than size 6. He prefers to go by a nickname.
But the guy in this video makes me thankful I don't have any of that name
How do you he wasn't pulling your leg with a made-up name like Justin Hale?
What about poor old Krzys Szczyz, who was born during The Great Polish Vowel Famine.
Some Anglicised African names are brilliant, one of the guys I worked with in Botswana was called Function, another was Master. Adjectives were popular: some of the women were named Pretty, Beautiful and one I knew of was called Insatiable! True.
My Spanish partner's name is Dolores (pains in English) and I knew a Consuela (consoles).
No Demonica ?
The closest I can remember was an anglicized name of Vertical. Dude was well over 6’ 6”
Didn't a high-school grad list, being read by a governor include a senior named Harry Esckrek?
I honestly don't know if the reader was getting punk'd or if name was genuine (and I'm a bit juvenile).
At least they didn't give diplomas to Benjamin Dover & Michael Hunt.
Could you imagine having to call that out loud while trying to rein him in as a child
And if he didn’t come on the first call
Shortly before I retired from teaching, I had two Special Ed students who were refugees from the Republic of Congo. I don't think I should give their actual names, but it took me a solid two or three months to be able to easily say their first and last names, as well as spelling them. Another teacher who worked with them daily (like I did) NEVER could say them, much less spell them. I hadn't thought of them for maybe three years, and I tested myself......and I can still say AND spell them.
Got to 36 seconds & said "enough".
I was in an urban Walgreens in Philly about ten years ago and a mother walked in with a couple of kids in tow and a bun in the oven. One of the kids was running around and she had to call him back. His name was “Messiah “. Seriously
We can only speculate on the spelling
As a person with a weirdly spelt name I can sympathize sometimes
That’s like setting a kid up to fail though, with a name like that more than likely you’ll have an overinflated ego and you’ll be great or terrible
This thread is a giant face-palm.
This is a skit, but who knows ?
It is her alter-ego at certain times and then I run for the hills.
If your name is a bit hard to get around, Aussies usually give you an appropriate nickname that often sticks...
kind of like a welcome to the club/gang kinda thing...
