What’s in a name? – the sequel

It all started out so innocently this afternoon… or so I thought. There I was, reading my twitter feed conversing with @Dragonray and @Matticus when all of a sudden I was asked:

Now I admit it’s not an unusual question, in fact it’s a post I finally got around to writing a while ago, but as I was in the process of answering, I saw that I had a new interaction coming in on my feed. Once I answered the initial tweet, I saw what appeared to be an influx of answers or interpretations from other people.

There was a bit of creative cutting and pasting to get all the tweets in order but it was a pretty interesting few minutes. Apologies if I missed anyone.

Tweet Matticus

Tweet Ryan

Tweet Mat

Tweet Vitae

Tweet Lin

Tweet Nickie

So there you have it.

That’s the way my name is pronounced as well as the Welsh interpretation. You do learn something every day :)

Yours is one of the few names that I actually got right. I tend to pronoun these names in my head and then find out it’s totally wrong, so I’m real happy about Cymre, lol!

I admit when I saw the name I thought it was Cy – muir or something like that!

And I /cry at the lack of the love for Kimchi, my ancestors weep! :P

Glad I got it right, Shimmer!

    @Tome – Hurray! The amount of times people actually get my name right is few and far btwn so thx :)

    @Slice – Aww, I do like the other stuff though :)

    @Matticus – Cheeky!

Good to know! I’d been mentally pronouncing it as Sim-ray.

Gee, well at least I know I’ve been getting it right. Though if I hadn’t you would’ve smacked me upside in the head real quick smart.
