I have something to tell you: I’m terrible with names.
Like absolutely awful…
I’ll meet someone and literally 30 seconds later I’ll forget their name.
Sorry, I don’t mean to insult anyone!
It just is what it is…
Take a look at these tweets from people who got names wrong in a major way.
1. Not so ordinary.
Oh, never mind.
My daughter told me there was a girl in her class called Ordinary. Turned out it was Audrey.

2. Goat Free.
For the good 7 years we’ve been calling our class mate Goat free. Only to be corrected by our English teacher in our first day of grade 8. He was Godfrey. Even he was shocked.????????♀️??♀️??♀️ pic.twitter.com/jewJINV55e

3. This is not good.
Our daughter insisted a kid in her 4K class was named Bastard. Baxter. It was Baxter.

4. I kind of like this idea.
Makes things easier.
My 2.5yo goes to daycare with identical twins named Maria and Aurelia but she calls them Maria and “More Maria”

5. Which do you prefer?
I kind of like Chocolate!
My daughter told me her friend at school was called Chocolate.

6. Very close…
In the same ballpark.
My daughter came home from the first week of Pre-K talking about her new friend Paper. We pored over the class roster to find her. Her name is Paige.

7. Praise be to Harold.
The big guy upstairs.
My mum was an infant school teacher. One of the kids thought God’s actual name was Harold. As in “Our Father who art in heaven, Harold be thy name.” ?

8. Sorry about that!
I think I might like Ugly better…
My 4 YO has a friend at school he calls Ugly. We got his bag of Valentines – her name is Oakleigh.

9. Hello, Internet.
It’s a beautiful name.
My 8yo daughter met a girl at summer camp last year named “Internet.” I said no way, that can’t be her name but my daughter has been adamant. For almost a year we’ve been having this discussion.
ANTOINETTE. I just found out her name is Antoinette.

10. Don’t call her that!
That’s not very nice.
My friend’s daughter insisted there was a girl in her preschool class named Chewbacca. It wasn’t till the class roster came out that they learned about Rebecca. ?
