I've known several Denise-s, but never a D'Niece.

Is it pronounced Dee-Nice?

D’Niece. Who is probably weary of being asked if she has a brother called D’Nephew.

Reminds me of this old joke ;D:

A pregnant woman gets into a car accident and goes into a coma.
After nearly six months, she wakes up to find that she is no longer pregnant.
Frantically, she asks the doctor about her baby.
The doctor replies, "Ma'am, you had twins! A boy and a girl. The babies are fine. Your brother came in and named them.
The woman thinks to herself, "Oh no, not my brother! He's so stupid." Expecting the worst, she asks the doctor, "Well, what's the girl's name?"
"Denise," the doctor says.
The new mother thinks, "Wow, that's not such a bad name! I like Denise!"
Then she asks the doctor, "What's the boy's name?"
The doctor replies, "DeNephew."

I went to church with a woman who was named Denise who was fraternal twins with Dennis.  She liked to tell that joke.

A man arrested a few towns over had the name Markese.

I usually see that one spelled Marquis

Did... did somebody do the “spell a name backwards to get a new name” thing with Sharice?!

Veronique. I thought initially it was a yooneek spelling of Veronica, but it's actually pronounced Veroneek.

Veronique is the French variant of Veronica!
