    I was confused for a second as well, but I'll clarify here: the kid is called Sinatra.

    huh, I should dig up my birth certificate, I never knew you couldn't use accents :o

    I don't ever use the accent on my name tbh, which my mom hates because she's proud of it sounding fancy x'D

    my paternal great grandmother apparently absolutely loved the song "Danny Boy" and she also really liked the name "Don"

    so in the fine tradition of white women everywhere, she named her son (my bio-granddad) Dandon

  5. The last name “Joner”, which I believe goes here not because it’s bad in anyway, but because it’s as close as possible to the name Jones. It must be hell trying to get other people to spell their name right.

    I recall a Cake Wrecks entry of a baby shower cake with fondant baby paraphernalia (bottle, pacifier, etc) on it, including three little alphabet blocks, all showing the letter K. Jen's comment: "Never in my life have I so fervently hoped a cake was chocolate."

    Tiffany is short for Theophania, apparently, so now I have to have a character named Theophania who goes by Tif

    apparently their parents played sessions of D&D with too many "kh"s and "y"s instead of too many apostrophes

  13. I had to do a double take when I saw this one and make sure I didn’t misread it- the surname Begay.

    Okay, but is "be gay" a command, or is it a comment on the person bearing the name's tendencies? :P

    Fun fact, relatedly: for a time, Gay was actually used as a given name (since the original meaning is "happy" and all--it made sense at the time, basically). I feel kinda bad for anyone who has it now...

    Also, this reminds me that I have not shared the utterly delightful joke about "Penis Van Lesbian," so here you go.

    I see "gay" as a middle name for older people in voter records pretty regularly. Plus the occasional "Gaylord."

    I guess at least with a middle name they can not use it if it's embarrassing to them, but...

    Is it pronounced like “be gay” or is the pronunciation different? I know precisely fuckall about Navajo pronunciation and now I’m really curious.
