16 Things Only People With Unique Names Will Understand

how to wear black and white stripes_7761Oh man, Lord knows the things I went through having a different name. I remember winning student of the month in elementary and at 7 years old tugging on the principles suit jacket to correct his pronunciation of my name.  The name he mispronounced horribly in front of the ENTIRE school….EVERY YEAR. When I first saw this article I died. Since I was a child, having a different name has had it’s up and downs and I love that my name is unique and wouldn’t change it for the world. But there are some things we with weird names go through that I wouldn’t wish on most. Oh the embarrassment.

If you have a weird name you will totally agree with most of these. Check it out HERE. (My name’s pronounced “E-no-sha” btw someone tell my principle already! lol)

    Haha, I love that list. A barista spelled my name correctly for the first time ever just a couple months ago and I wanted to hug her.

    I totally understand. My 10year old daughter always correct and spell her name out every time her name is mispronounced. She said one day ” Mom as easy as my name is, how come people just don’t get it ” her name is Itunu. ( It -Unu) . I go through this everyday too. My full name is Ajibike. A-ji-bee-keh. 🙂
