I may really just be a 13 year old boy inside, but when I see a name that begins with any random letter and ends with “_enis,” I giggle a little bit inside.
For four or five years, I had a supervisor named Denis, and I still have a hard time seeing his name. Of course, I did go out with a “Pinal” for two years in college. But he was Indian and their word for “penis” is different. Plus, he was a really good sport about it. “It’s my name; what can I do?”
Surely when people name their child and look at the name as it’s written, they can see the resemblance! What do you think of that?
