What's sad is how many people have commented on that site, taking it as a serious news item.

Re: Federal Judge: Enough With the Stupid Names

Okay - true story.

My wife used to work in staffing and had many of these types of names come across her desk on job applications. A woman of African-American descent hands her an application with the first name "C'mon". My wife, a middle class caucasian woman - looked at the applicant quizzically and said (pronouncing the name in accordance with accepted english phonetics) "uhhh, 'Come on'?" .... The woman heaves a heavy, aggrieved sigh (complete with eye-roll and neck movement) and with LARGE amounts of attitude looks at her and says "simone".

As a friend of ours says: Sorry - those letters in that order DO NOT make those sounds.

I know it's not real. A federal judge can't tell you what to name your children.

LOL. Some of these names really are pretty ridiculous sometimes. I called a restaurant the other day to make a reservation, and the woman who answered the phone said "thank you for calling ___, this is Ikea, how may I help you?" IKEA?? Why would her parents do that to her?

My name's Di'Andra. Take a stab at it.

I hate people butchering it so bad, my name tag at work just says D. Simple enough.

dee ahn druh or dee ann druh right? I guess it could be a long i, I don't know.. also the last part could be "dray"

I worked with a girl who spelled hers the same, called her D or dang for short.. but hers was dee ahn druh, I think

Ding ding. You and Try are correct.

I've had people call me Andrea. Really? You just missed the whole damn D and added an e?

Sigh. My parents are so cruel.
