My friend has a nephew named Phoenix. He's going to have a nickname he's not going to like in high school.
My name's Autumn. People spell it Autum, or pronounced Awh-tumm-nuhh. It pisses me off, sometimes called January, Amber, Winter, etc. And sometimes they do it on purpose. I mean, Holy CRAP. It's so annoying. Atleast my mom chose that over Umbrella. (I would like that one, though.)
I feel your pain. My name is Aylin. It's pronounced like Eileen though. But everyone always says it like A-lun or A-lin or Allan. And because of the spelling, people have given me the nickname Alien. One friend even turned Alien into Aliena so now I have a completely new name along with my own. It can get irritating but now I just go with it. :)
My name's Madison. When people call me out in a crowd, about 7 other girls (and occasionally a guy) turns to who said it. Last year I had my locker next to a quite popular Madi. Someone would say Madi and I would react only to get, "Oh... Not you." On average I have about 1-3 other Madi's in all of my classes.
My name is Danny. It's SO common. A popular girl in ,my grade was named Dani, and every time girls called her name I'd turn around and it'd be awkward. My guitar teacher is Danny. My bassist is Danny. TWO of my history teachers in high school were Danny. True, I once was in an English class where there were 5 Dannys. We'd always do group projects together, because we made up a quarter of the class. Grass is always greener, eh?
I know it's not my first name, but my middle name is 'Delysia'. I've been called 'Del-eye-za' 'Del-ee-sa' and even 'Del-ee-zee-ah' with an extra 'ah' haha. In actual fact it's pronounced 'Del-ee-see-a' and I love how unique it is. My first and last name are so common so I love having a bit of originality :D
K mines beast- Im naomi-dont say it backwards My friends names are zariah, halima, micaela, zacari, malique, imani, abcde ( prenounced ab-sid-dee), and i know a girl named stacy wacker.... Yes ik stacy wacker isnt bad.... Her dads name is richard and everyone calls him dick.... Hey Dick Wacker!!!
the store manager where I work is named Chris P Dick. there's also a teacher at my school named Harry Sachs. he doesn't actually go by Harry, but its still funny. and btw, Yuri is an eastern European boys name, but it's also a Japanese girls name, but it's still not pronounced Judy...
On the brightside, Atleast theres not like 5 other people in your class that has the same name as you!
That sucks but does anybody else have an ad pop up everytime you opeb fml app because that really sucks
OP's from France, and I thought they had laws there against giving your kid a weird name? At least, that's something that comes up in the U.S. when people here give their children an unfortunate name. "If this were France, or Germany, you wouldn't be allowed to name your kid that. They have laws."
@133 indeed, there is a law against that and that is why I think that OP's talking about his last name, and not his surname as everyone think. Actually I'm pretty sure it's his last name. @107 "pénis" is not pronounced 'pay knee", the final "s" is pronounced like in "kiss". Also with the French pronunciation, French people will automatically think "Sperme" (and not supreme) or mispelled it. Awkward...
