  3. VJ Wocky

    VJ Wocky 34 Somnolent Void Seeks Perfection in Dissonance

    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.

    Acey breathtaking, heartbreaking

    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.

  7. TwoBrokenMirrors

    TwoBrokenMirrors Succulent Vex Belly

    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)

  10. VJ Wocky

    VJ Wocky 34 Somnolent Void Seeks Perfection in Dissonance

    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.

    Oh god, the over-the-top “unique” spellings thing ALWAYS gets me. x_x
     
  16. 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.

    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.
