21 Of The Worst Things You Can Say To Someone With A Unique Name

    "I couldn't find a souvenir with your exact name on, so I bought you this shitty alternative." Great. Story of my life.

    1. "I can't quite remember your name. It's a weird one, right?"

    2. "No, what's your real name?"

    3. "Can you repeat that?"

    4. "Can you sound it out for me please?"

    5. "That's a funny name!"

    6. "Did you just make that up?"

    7. "What does it mean?"

    8. "Are you foreign?"

    9. "Where's your name from?"

    10. "So, what's the English version of your name?"

    11. "I apologise in advance if I mispronounce your name"

    12. "Your name is so unusual! So quirky! So weird!"

    13. "Is your name short for something else?"

    14. "Don't you have a nickname I can call you?"

    15. "Oh, sorry [insert name that is STILL not your goddamn name]"

    16. "I'll just call you [X]."

    17. "Are you sure that's how you spell your name?"

    18. "Why did your parents choose to spell it that way?"

    19. *makes a joke based on your name* "Get it?! It's funny because of your name!"

    20. "I couldn't find a souvenir with your exact name on, but I thought this was close enough"

    21. And, from every Starbucks barista ever: "Can I take your name?"
