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!

Mine is long, but I wouldn't call it weird, and it's spelled how it sounds, so not to bad.

Because ... that's how it's spelled. 'Qu' makes a cw sound. Quack, queen.... it just makes sense to an American.



I would pronounce it like 'pah-kin,' but I can kinda recognize an American name vs something else...



Quoting Anonymous:

Mine is Paquin. People always pronounce it Pacwin. There is no C in the name... So I don't get it? lolĀ

My maiden name was Benway. I absolutely hated it especially when I was in school. For some weird reason no one could spell it right and I would get called Bengay and "how long have you ben gay" crap like that. it was so annoying. so glad my last name changed.

I am married but didn't even consider taking my husbands last name....WINTERMANTEL.....I am a Bryant....Nd I still have to repeat Bryant and usually end up having to spell it.  But it is a lot better than Wintermantel!!
