Whe I was in the army I change my name then later changed it back. I considered Guy Tzelmavit, the valley of the shadow of death. I thought that would be a perfect name

Was it a boy or a girl? I think June is a wonderful name; I'd name my baby that no matter when he or she was born.

I hate when people do this. It dooms the poor kid to a life of spelling out a name that should be simple.

"My name is Stephen Jones, and I'd like to get a driver's license"
"Ah, yes, S-T-E-P-"
"No, ma'am, it's S-T-E-7-I-N-N, which explains why I'm a sociopath who tortures cats"

I actually encountered this by proxy yesterday. The lawn guy came by while I was unloading my toddler from the Jeep. He asked my boy's name, and I told him. It's a relatively common name, especially in the South, and the lawn guy went, "oh, my grandson's name is the same, how do you spell it?" I was confused, given I spell it the way it's spelled, but I told him, and he informed me that his grandson's was spelled in some convoluted manner. I wanted to respond with, "congrats, your son is a douche," but he was a nice guy who is about to cut down a tree that sits about 15 feet from my bedroom, so I refrained.

so my aunt is a schoolteacher who gets a fair number of immigrants. She's also devout and upright without being stuffy, a joy to be around. One year she got this name that she could not figure out. She read it over and over again and never could decide on a pronunciation. C-H-A-P-H-U-C. She calls roll and calls out "CHAP-Huck"

A giggle comes from that back of the room, "it's cha-FUCK".

My aunt cannot call her "cha-FUCK". Won't do it. I can't recall what she went with, but she spent a few minutes at the start of class listening to other teachers struggle with Chaphuc's name, and can finally chuckle about it.
