Edelweiß is...ok it stands in the same Tradition as 'rose' and 'yasmin' but still.
a man, surname “Dickhaut.”
i know its supposed to be pronounced "dick-out" but my first guess was "dick-haunt" and i was honestly a little impressed. because who want's to fuck with someone with a haunted dick?
I parsed it "dick-hot," which is an entire additional can of worms.
I’m reminded of the fact that Assman is a real surname. Pronounced more like AHS-mahn iirc, not like...ass man, but...
(And I distinctly recall reading a Wikipedia article about an Assman whose first name was Dick. Yes, seriously.)
I thought this adjuster's name was Mindy. It wasn't. Her name is Minty. Like minty fresh.
Her last name. Is Wang.
This isn't a name that's unfortunate so much as it sounds... fake, like someone made it up to belong to the Quintessential Lower-Class Everyman. But as far as I know, Fred Plog is real and was involved in a book (I can't remember if wrote, illustrated, edited or otherwise contributed, but he was involved)
Thor Knutson is a real human that lives on my mail route.
There are some names that just evoke one hell of an image.
i might have read too many fantasy books, because that name doesn't seem too bad to me
a little more odd for meatspace names but not as bad as i was expecting
am i missing something?
I’m mostly confused by how that’s even supposed to be pronounced. Not as bad as some I’ve seen, and it really wouldn’t look out of place in a fantasy setting, but I’d say it’s a bit over the top for an actual human, personally.
Jess-en-nia is how the parent said it.
apparently Jessenia is an Arabic name so im not fussed about it
i only wanna frown at names when theyre like "yeah we spelled kyle with seventeen ys and a c because Unique"
Oh god, the over-the-top “unique” spellings thing ALWAYS gets me. x_x
look i'm fucking sorry, okay?? i'm not familiar with these names and I'm surprised Ms. Mendoza gave her child an ARABIC influenced one.
I'm not like mad at you? It's fine
Can we please not fight in here?
Back on topic, and speaking of “unique” spellings, I don’t think I shared this one: I know someone named Kate-Lynn. Yes, hyphenated.
Understandably, she just goes by Katie.
I have an old woman who comes into work every once in a while named Tiny Mann
