I once handled the paperwork for a woman whose name was Marvelous Jelly. That was seriously her legal first and last name. Cool lady.

I work for as an event planner and we have all kinds of people registering to attend conferences, so we see a lot of unusual names. I go to approve a registration and the first name is Bmjk. Figuring it’s a typo I call their number (work number) to sort it out and get the correct spelling. Lady picks up and I ask to speak to ‘Boomjikky’, my best attempt at pronounce Bmjk. She sounds confused to I explain the situation and she goes ‘ohhh, you mean Bee-Em-Jay-Kay’. His name is the literal pronunciation of those 4 letters.

Back in the 1970’s and 1980’s, when phone books had EVERY phone number, there was listing for “Hogjaw Twaddle”.

35 years later I learn that my husband’s aunt knew who he was, and lived nearby. 😆.

Little girl used to come into the library where I worked. Her name was La—a. I had no idea how to pronounce it so I asked her. Her response was “just like it’s spelled, LaDasha!” Poor child.

There were two kids who used to live across the street from me. The girl (about four years old) was named Flower. Not Rose, Violet, Lily, or whatever, just Flower.

Her brother (about six years old) apparently looked like the elf from those Keebler crackers when he was born, so his parents legally named him Keeby. KEEBY. KEEBY!
