There are many obstacles and challenges that can arise from one’s name – from initials that spell something untoward, nicknames no one anticipated, or yes, names that sound “dirty” or that can be read that way, there’s always someone out there ready to make a joke about something you had zero control over.
Thanks guys, real mature.
These 15 people have a sense of humor about it, though, so go ahead and laugh.
Cause, I mean…it’s pretty funny.

And same over here. Trust me, it's a club. It doesn't help that I graduated from Seaman High School, tho

13. When you have to misspell your own name.
When I got my computer I had to set my last name as “Spron” because Sporn contains offensive language

8. So much for an accepting learning environment.
I feel heard! I was blocked by my own school, especially on their computers.

7. Who knew this name was so common?

6. I didn’t think about autocorrect!
While all of my cowardly siblings have changed their last name, I'm out here alone hanging on to Penix until death, dealing with Microsoft autocorrecting it to Penis every damn time.

2. As you should.
I'm starting to feel a little bad for naming my son Stormy. He's going to have hell on social media.

If I had a dollar for every joke that I’ve heard going through the TSA checkpoint at O’Hare I would ever have to fly again.

Don’t be that person, y’all!
