I hate my name-
Clare Rhiannon, it makes me sound American.
Sounds pretty Welsh to me?
Still, at least you don't sound like a Chav.
So what name would you have then if you could pick?
Rhiannon sounds very welsh to me.
Yeah but the whole two name thing, sounds American...
It's why I generally call myself just Clare, or Rhiannon... Mostly Rhiannon. But I hate it when people pronounce that wrong....
Gah. Stupid people.
How do you pronounce Rhiannon wrong.
I work with a woman named Rhianydd, and she goes mental when people call her Rhiannon.
See what you mean about the 2 name thing though, it is very American.
What's really funny is trying to get American's to pronounce Welsh words and place names. It freaks them out big time.
Try getting a Yank to say "Blaenllechau".
It's like that scene out of Scanners where that guys head explodes.
I was suposed to be called Ben, but then my parents went crazy and called Chris.....
I suppose it was either Clare or Blodwen...
My dad's English, so I think as a way to make sure it wasn't biased he used an English (well actually Irish...) first name to block out the Welshness...
I still prefer the Welsh name, I might have it changed by deed poll.
No one can ever say Clare correctly.
I'm forever being called "Cluh" which is annoying.
when I think about Chris Whyte sounds better than Ben Whyte.
hehe....Mr WelshGuy, we meet again, but not for the last time, i hope
Hope not Mr Darkside. You know I was going to be called Ben too, after my Grandfather. But instead they went with Wayne, after.......
Well no-one really, which doesn't really make much sense.
Where is Celebration Europe 2007 being held? I wanna go to that, sounds awesome! =]
CE is being held in the ExCel convention centre in London docklands. FF-UK will have a representation there, we hope to have a table shared with the other European chapters of Fan Force.
