A Clever Name

There comes a time in most people's life where they must think, "What should I name my children?" and this question is hard to answer (Beth, Charlie, Spunky?). Well I do not have a solution, but I have a great idea... Have his name spelt something like "Josh," but be pronounced something like "Gary."

Imagine your child in a classroom. Attendance is being taken.
"Josh," says the teacher, "Is Josh here? Josh?"
"Actually it is pronounced Gary," says Josh.
Class: HAHAHAHA

Yes it's true, middle schoolers are cruel, and he might be picked on, but once he gets to high school and college, he will be the most popular kid in school. Every time someone reads his name or tries to write it down: instant ice-breaker.
"Ah you must be Josh"
"Actually it's pronounced Gary"
"Wow that's so cool. We should go out some time."

He will nail his job interview:
"Ah so your name is Josh?"
"Actually it's Gary"
"Really it says Josh here."
"Yeah it's some stupid thing my parents found on some blog. It's pronounced Gary."
"Wow that's interesting...You're hired."

And he can get those people at the DMV back:
"Yes sir, what's your name?"
"Gary"
"Sorry we have no Gary here."
"It's spelt-"
"I know how it's spelt it's not here."
"You don't understand, it's spelt-"
"I understand, there is no Gary here."
"It's spelt J-O-S-H can I please speak to you're supervisor?"
"Ah here is Josh. Normally, you'd have to go to 8 other lines, but due to the miscommunication, I'll take care of it for you."

In conclusion, Best. Child. Name. Idea. Ever.

  2. I can imagine how a trip to a therapist would be like...can't decided whether if its a split personality disorder or just the fact he can't accept that his name is spelled differently than it sounds! lol!

  3. I fucking love that idea. It's almost worth the hassle of being a parent to do that to a child.

  9. Funny enough when it comes it names I always had to correct the spelling of my first name. I always have to say, "It is Jillian with a J", because everyone automatically writes G. I love your post and I am following you from the Hop. I am looking forward to your next post and hope you follow back my blog.
    Have a great day.

    1. Well at least it's not spelled "Jennifer," then it would be much more confusing.

  11. I just found you thanks to Everyday Blog Hop and I'm glad it did. You are a gifted writer and a skilled storyteller with a wicked sense of humor. My wife and I almost named our son Josh, and I had no idea it could be pronounced Gary. I hope you'll visit me sometime at Chubby Chatterbox. I think we might have a lot in common. If you do come for a visit. I hope you'll take a moment and press the Join button, and I'll return the favor. Take care, and I look forward to reading more of your posts. I just returned from the eye doctor and I can't wait to read what you have to say on the subject.

  25. Very cute. I work at an OBGYN office so I see so many ridiculous names that this is almost normal. My favorite (not lying) la-a pronounced la-dash-a because the dash isn't silent.
