When I was in the Army, I was, unfortunately, the guy with the funny name. Try being in the Army with the last name of Sargent. Not fun. Especially when I actually made the rank of Sergeant. That's right. Sergeant Sargent. It was a pain in the *ss to say the least. dry.gif

I always thought that Sargent was a cool last name. Growing up in the mId-west with a last name of Schwab on the other hand.....constantly called Q-tip as people pronounced my last name as swab or squab all the time.

As a kid trying to fit in it got me in constant fights as an adult I simply consider the source wink.gif and I like being different.

My 9th grade social studies teacher thought my last name, Quinones, sounded like cheeseconey. That was bad.

DRAGON BLESSING

May dragons bring you wealth
and guard your treasures
May they banish darkness and enlighten you
May female dragons grant you inner power
May the Dragon Queen
neutralize your enemies
May Dragon Spirits
give you power over Elementals
May weather dragons
bring rain at your request
May Ti'amat effect the changes you command
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power

Why thanks! I always liked my last name -- except while I was in the Army.

Q-Tip, eh? You should know better than to give us that kind of ammo. tongue.gif
You better hope that Monkey Boy doesn't read this.

Normal is a relative term. For some reason it is not a term my relatives use to describe me.

Apparently my name is pretty odd... its Dannah - pronounced like hannah with a D... so its Dan-nah. growing up though I've been called Dana, Donna, Deanna, Dawn... the list goes on.

The best though was when a telemarketer called for my dad. He is a retired Lieutenant colonel in the Air Force, and the abbreviation is Lt. Col. The caller asked for "Letcol Russell... that's and interesting name, is that how you pronounce it?" To which my reply was "Actually, most people say Lieutenant Colonel."

Also, for original storys or thoughts from me, check out my blog: Dannah's Blog

I know someone who pronounces her name the same way you do, but spells it Dana. So you think it should be pronounced with a long A. When I saw your name I had it right, though. cool.gif

Todd,

It could have been worse, be glad your last name isn't Darling (you may need to be a fan of the Brit Comedy "Black Adder" to really understand this comment smile.gif )
