Do you have a weird last name?

 Feel free to go anon for this, if you don't want your last name out there.

 

I have a weird last name. I wish I didn't, because I ALWAYS have to spell it for people. And since it has letters that sound like other letters, like D and T and M I have to say "D, as in dog, T as in Turtle, M as in Mary". And people STILL butcher it! I hate it. I wish I could be a Smith or a Johnson...something that I wouldn't constantly have to spell out.

My last name? Ditmars. I'm willing to bet that not a single one of you share my last name. :) And there is not another person in this world that has the same first name/last name combination as me. At least not that I've found. So I guess that's at least one good thing - it's unique!

 

OMG!!! This is a featured post?!?! I've never had one of those - how cool!

It's not weird if you are Italian. Most people butcher it though. I married into a full Italian family.
