I found this while randomly stumbling about the interweb.
It's good for a larf.
An educator friend of mine forwarded me this gem via email.
How would you pronounce this student’s name: “Le-a”?
Lee - A? NOPE
Lay - a? NO WAY
Lei? Guess Again.
It’s pronounced “Ledasha.” Oh, yes, you read it right. This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. If you see something come across your desk like this, please remember to pronounce it correctly.
When the mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, “The dash don’t be silent.”
