  1. Better than “Perseus James Bond.”

  2. No it’s not

    I could just go for some boleslaw about now after reading that.

  4. I wonder if they are going to pronounce it properly (bo leh SWAV)

  5. “Bo leh swav ” doesn’t sound bad at all, assuming they pronounce it that way. I went to school with a kid called Sean but we all had to pronounce it “Seen” as that’s how his parents had thought it was pronounced when they named him.

  6. I think Ruth should have opted for “xXx” instead of Lennon. Which again is shorter than “Yet Another Bad Vin Diesel movie”

  7. Better than the angry mother who wrote a letter to her daughter’s school complaining that nobody got her name right.

    Her name: La-sha.

    How it’s pronounced: “Ladasha.”

  8. “It’s pronounced Lenin!”

  9. The importance of naming the produce of your rutting should never be underestimated. They will have that name throughout their education and the ramifications of your choice will live with them forever.

    Just ask my ninth son Cockafuckabillybobbington… The Third…. Esq

  11. I actually work with someone named Boleslaw. Very weird to see such an unusual name appear on Lamebook.

  12. Boleslav is a normal name in eastern europe.

  13. Thanks Nitt, I was going to comment on that too. Just because it’s unusual for you, doesn’t mean it’s unusual for the whole world. I hope they don’t pronounce it the anglicised way, that kid will get teased for life!

    La-sha on the other hand is not from a language/ tradition, it’s just stupid parents trying to be smart. Poor kid :( I hate to point it out, but I can take a strong guess what demographic they belong to.

  14. If that child is named Boleslaw in a country where it is a popular name, that child will be called coleslaw with a b, all the time, the first time in each of his classes, the first day of all sports, job interviews etc. Anyone who sees that name will pronounce it will say coleslaw with a b until they are corrected. Not to mention the kids are going to tease him no matter how it’s pronounced as soon as they see the spelling and whenever they hear someone mess up the name. I’d stick with Potatosalad, at least it sounds like it looks.

  15. For the love of god…NOBODY in the history of EVER has ever been named La-a. Why do people keep propagating that racist rumor? http://www.snopes.com/racial/language/le-a.asp

  16. I really don’t think you can say that no one has ever been named la-a or le-a beyond a shadow of a doubt. I mean, snopes is such a reliable source for information.. and even they say it’s “undetermined”

  17. @laugh.out.loud, except not. Coleslav isn’t popular here, name “Boleslav” is. Or maybe you meant “where it isn’t a popular name”?

  18. drchalkwitheringlicktacklefeff

    I dare say the name has been popularised by Boleslaw the Great, the first king of Poland.

  19. In the unfortunate circumstance that I have a daughter, I will name her Shithead and pronounce it Sha theed.

  20. The way “sean” is pronounced is effing ridiculous. Where in THE HELL is the “H”?

  21. @Hawkbit I don’t know if you’re being serious or not, but “Sean” is the Irish spelling and pronunciation for that name. Just a different language…

  22. s- in gaelic is pronounced /sh/ like in sean, siobhan, sinn finn…

  23. Le dash derp…. kudos to you, you corrected my typo. Your mom and English teacher must be so proud!

  24. thataintwhaturdaddysaid

    Do NOT get me started on Siabhan.

  25. Oh what do the Irish know about spelling? Don’t they drink…..A lot?

  26. Well surely an Irish person would know how to spell a name that is in there own language and yes Sean is pronounced with an ‘sh’ . The english for sean is spelled shaun so can you see where the h comes into it. Go raibh maith agat.

  27. The Irish know a lot about spelling @Hawkbit. So much so that they’ve even managed to come up with their own language. And it’s more pronunciation you should have commented on, than spelling. Also, as an native Irish person I can also confirm that the stereotypical Irish person does in fact drink a lot. And with me being one of those stereotypical Irish people, I’m off for a drink. Slán go foill (pronounced Shlaaan):D

  28. the ‘h’ in sean is in the same place as the ‘h’ in sugar. not there.

  29. Hawkbit, are you SURE it’s just the Irish?

    …And let America come up with it’s own language before commenting on other people’s.

  30. @Saffer: *its own language
