Haha I wonder what their parents are like, clever names haha

Exactly, what does this have to do with your life?

stop whining, it's funny. FML doesn't always have to be sad and dramatic.

Erika, when you tease someone's English using poor English yourself, you look foolish.

esl- english as a second language tw- taiwan?

ok esl= English as a second language. tw= Taiwan...

Their lives are not affected, those are not their real names and the OP can't possibly be so clueless as not to realize that. You can't enter any names with roman characters on a Taiwanese birth certificate, it's neither legally nor practically possible. If he had even passing knowledge of Chinese he would also know that you can't even spell "Harry" or "Potter" in Chinese characters. In other words: these young boys picked those names for English class, that's all.

OMG I feel sorry for that kid. but if he was just name that he was prob just born... so how does he tell you he prefers just Cullen?

u only started teaching English in Taiwan today

Uhmm... the standard format for an FML is 'Today, FML'. Doesn't mean he just started.

77, I think she was being sarcastic. Don't be so serious. :/

I know a darling with the last name Potter. She cannot wait to get married so she can change her last name! It can only be cute for so long before it gets annoying....

I know a guy named Harry, who's last name is Dicks. At least your girl friend can get married and change her name. My bud's stuck with his name.

Oh... oh no... What were his parents thinking!? I didn't even know that COULD be a last name!! And she's not my girlfriend!!!

sourgirl101 28

Haha, girl.... friend. Not girlfriend. I wasn't thinking you should be the one to marry her to change her name.(:

.... I knew that....I was just testing you.... >>;;;

Yes because the only way you can change your name is by getting married!

He can also take her name... In that situation, nobody would hold it against him, except for his psychotic parents probably.

I named my daughter Conjunction Plasmagun… Nothing wrong with getting a little creative, right?

I know! Everyone knows Harry is an English name.
