Today, I won a big raffle. However, my name is so ridiculous-sounding that they thought someone was playing a prank, and pulled a different ticket. I was too embarrassed to say anything. FML

126-Like that's the worst. Dick Assman, GoldenPalaceDotCom Silverman (parents were paid for that one), Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 (rejected protest against naming laws, but pronounced "Albin", later tried "@", also rejected, also pronounced "Albin", but not the first to try for @), God Shammgod......Batman bin Suparman has a lot of competition.

My dad purposely named me Amber so I would not have as many difficulties in school as he did. My Mexican last name though does add some problems since I live in a white based community

1) presumably they entered the raffle themselves so could have put down a nickname. 2) by the time you've grown up with something like that you should be able to laugh it off and stand up anyway. And if you can't manage 1 or 2 the you need to (3) change your name because you're going to miss a lot more in life than a raffle if you let what people think of your name keep you from what you're entitled to.
