What’s in a name?

As I was waiting for my lunch today, I saw a guy taking his lunch break. His nametag said his name was Iqbal.

I have no idea how to pronounce that.

Doesn’t the “Q” need an “U” to make a sound at all?

Then, unbidden, the strangest nametag I’ve ever seen jumped out of my memory.

I was checking out at Target and the cashier’s nametag proudly announced that her name was ASSWINDA.

Let that soak in for a moment.

One more.

Asswinda? Why not go all out and name her Farta.

Wow. Just wow.
