I asked her how she got her name...her parents were called over the telephone for the baby's name as she was discharged without a name. When the lady called, her mother said "Can we just name her tomorrow?" When they learned of the error they liked the sound of it and it stayed that way.

Not Aaron, like the traditional malebut Erin, the traditional female spelling. This was about thirty years ago and I still wonder how much teasing and confusion that child endured.Last edit by Moogie on May 13, '09 : Reason: grammar

I feel sorry for people with those kind of names that make people snicker even though I am guilty of snickering. It is totally juvenile but I cant help but chuckle when I hear of someone with the last name Butz or Buttigan--real names--I have heard both.
Hey! My maiden name was Butt.

Or Joel, pronounced Jo-ELLE. For a boy.
Sometimes, it's all I can do to keep my mouth shut.

Nothing to be sorry about. I miss it sometimes. It was unique and as long as you have a sense of humor about it, you don't get too bothered. I dare anyone to come up with a joke I have never heard..... I don't think I would take it back cuz my kids have my married name. Also, I have no plans of divorcing
6th grade was a little rough-- Baby Got Back came out that year. Hee-hee.
Also... Check out my claim to fame! My grandpa's uncle was on the Titanic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archibald_Butt
Here is the Butt Memorial bridge dedicated to him http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archibald_Butt

He is one accomplished Butt. I dont know any of my family hx beyond my grandparents and sketchy details about their parents. If you are from Georgia or nearby, people probably know the hx. You must have been proud to be a Butt. Unfortunately, I cant think of any good butt jokes, but I will keep looking.
