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 Hilson. People would always ask, "like the hotel?" I said HILSON not HILTON.

My maiden name was very very Irish and people were constantly mispronouncing it, although it was pronouced exactly as it was spelled.  People also used to put Mc in front of it randomly and that drove me crazy!  My married name is one syllable, four letters, and very bland.  And people mispronounce it even more than they did my long Irish name.

Nope. My maiden name... You don't have to be a private investigator to clearly see what THAT is hahaha isn't common but its not "out there" either.. Although a lot of people like to change the last letter from an "s" to an "r" ... That gets annoying. I hyphenated my married name.. And my dh's last name is like.. Number 1 or 2 most popular last name... I hate it. Lol.
