My last name is pretty easy, but people mess up the pronunciation of it all the time. (Though it means "he who dwells at the sign of the wolf". Pretty awesome if you ask me.)

Luna I imagine your name is pronounced like how Kelly would say "kick"



"I'm gonna straight up keck that betch!"

People like to pronounce my last name like "Marttle" instead of "Mar- tell"

*GASP!* They've put Tomba!/Tombi! on the PSN store for only a few quid. Having...trouble breathing...so excited!

EDIT: For those who don't know, Tomba! (originally Tombi!, no idea why they changed the last letter) was a "Metroidvania" style adventure game made for the PS1 which had a demo on the disk distributed with PS1s (in Europe at least) but an extremely short print run, meaning that while pretty much everyone played it, barely anyone ever owned it. Until now a second hand copy could go for about £90.

Last names discussion? I've got some grief with mine. It's quite a rare one (Brommit). I have NO idea what it means, but it's English in origin. And people constantly get the amount of m's and t's wrong and sometimes utterly butcher it (I've had Bomitt, Bromma, Brommti...). And I got called "Vomit" by the mean kids in school a lot to the point that for a few years I used my Mom's maiden name.

My last name is insanely easy to pronounce, but people be trippin' at anything besides an Anglo-Saxon name (I'm looking at you, Chris). What bugs me especially is that people keeping saying my name with an R when there's nary an R to be found.

EDIT: As disinterested as I am in reptiles, tell Brandon he has my condolences concerning Cell.

Not laughing that is. I turned my head away as I was scrolling down, accidentally turned my mouse wheel and zoomed in on it, turned back and....
