    People find mine too long to say in it's entirety, so I get Flam, Flame, and Flamo a lot.

    But yeah, Fluh-mock-tuh-pus.

    Mine is pretty self explanatory.

    But my Real life last name is Gulbrandsen. I've met a few english speaking folks who get it all wrong. I don't mind though. Changing my name soon. I'm lazy, and I also have a first and middle name. So three names that are pretty long makes for some really shitty signatures and introductions.

    Try having a first name that is perpetually spelled wrong, 2 middle names, and a last name for an ethnicity that does not fit your own.

    My board name is easy enough, although a lot of folks will pronounce Strid as Stride. I used that name to go with my nickname of Edd because I was/still am a big fan of Soilwork and wanted a surname to go with it that wasn't my own, so I took the lead singer's.

    As for my real name I get a number of folks adding a B to the start of it, so I'm often referred to as Bryan.

    My surname always gets the same treatment when asked to spell it... "Oh, like the Greek island".

    My first name is constantly misspelled all the time as well. I understand it, though, since Neil is the more common spelling of it, but it still bugs me to no end.

    Also, although it doesn't happen very often, my last name will occasionally be mispronounced. Then, when I correct the person who did it, they re-look at the name and realize that they're an idiot for thinking that it would be pronounced any other way than the correct way.

    Kinda the reverse of Randy Dixon, people always call him "Andy". What a bunch of jerks.


    If we're talking real names, people mess up my first and last all the time. "Levi" shouldn't be that hard, damn near everybody has at least seen a commercial for their jeans, but I still get "Levy", "Lovey", "Leevee" and all sorts of other nonsense. My last name is "Lehman", which I can understand folks getting wrong because different families with the name do pronounce it different ways. It's pronounced "lay-men" for us, like the golfer, but of course I get "lee-men", "lee-man", "lemon", etc.

    Dude running my card at a restaurant over the weekend used both my names, only got the first right. Said he "had to" because they go together so well, and apologized if he got the last name wrong. It was kinda weird.

    When I saw your last name, I just automatically assumed it was "lee-men". I think the whole Lehman Bros. thing back in '08 just sorta instilled that into my head.

    "Idiot of shit", that doesn't make sense in English or Spanish.


    Nothing's worse than shitlords who think they've learned enough and are going to be unwashed cunts about every aspect of their life, even if it means dragging a thread down with them.


    Thanks PhilKebbinSevin. Indirect thanks to Victor as well.
