Do you have a weird last name?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 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!

My maiden name was Smith.  Trust me, you DON'T want that name.

My married name isn't as common but still can be butchered.  I just tell people it's spelled like the candy and they usually get it.

My mom's first name is Janet and people somehow manage to butcher that.  Some people are just stupid.

My last name is McClellan. Most people can't pronounce it to save their lives. It's kind of funny.
