My life is a lie... this is another proof of the language barrier. Geny is pronounced like in grave that's common sense, at least when you speak something else than an indo european language.

In Turkish, it's always pronounced like the G in grave, too. But I don't think in Turkish when I read the name Geny, maybe, it would have been different if it was Geni.

Well I for one, always assumed Geny was pronounced with a G such as Galaad, but that is because I am purely and simply awesome.

Geny said:
Yeah, I've come to terms that most people mispronounce my name. Which is ironic, since one of the reasons I've chosen it all those years ago was because I wanted a short name so that no one would misspell it.


that isn't really ironic because people are mispronouncing it but aren't actually misspelling it, which have nothing to do with each other, and thus does not subvert expectations to create any irony lol

You're not seeing the big picture. People were butchering my name. I made a new one so that it would stop, but the name I chose butchered itself in a new way. That's pretty ironic.

that's the Alanis Morrisette brand of irony, they butchered it for an unrelated reason where you would not necessarily tend to expect they wouldn't butcher it so it's more of a coincidence/misfortune lol

Since, you say that, you've probably seen this already, I'm guessing it's now "a classic" in the U.K. anyhow. But just in case, you haven't...

Maybe yes, indeed Henry in French is spelled Henri, we just skip the H, and btw I hope you understood my previous reply, I put some stupid thoughts into it, both about the piece I used for reference and various languages.

Well, how to say, we can't make an omelette without cutting through knots, but it rhymes in french with breaking eggs so it doesn't work as well in english, did you get the fourtwenty? I assume you know for the russian part in the name.

Yep I was pretty tired and a bit drunk.

No, I thought it was just a Hamlet/Gamlet thing and assumed you were a little drunk about the rest of it.

Same as the artu in R2 D2 but that's not where it's coming from, it's my surname.

I guess, it was Turkish sometime ago since it's a surname in Turkish but it has no meaning today, I once checked, means diary products in some distant local dialect but that's far fetched. We have surnames since 1934, and my great grandfather had nothing to do with diary products, I wonder what he was thinking when he picked it. I like it though, it's one of a kind and I like the sound of it.

I know the meaning of irony gets twisted a lot lately, but I'm pretty sure that when my actions encourage something that I as trying to prevent by those actions, it is in fact ironic.
