Asenath was actually the wife of Moses, not a queen.  I just read a very interesting book about her that I found on Amazon for my kindle!  (Granted, the book itself is just fiction, and I believe her name only shows up in one verse in the Old Testament, but it was still interesting.)  Of course, there probably was also a queen named Asenath. 

I kind of like the name, it's interesting!

Sorry, not Moses but Joseph (Moses' wives were Tharbis and Zipporah) . While she barely gets a mention in the Old Testament, there is an apocryphal book of Joseph and Asenath, that tells the story in detail. In it, Joseph and Asenath end up ruling Egypt, which may be where the idea of her as an Egyptian queen comes from.

Yes, you are right!  I meant Joseph.  I don't know where Moses came from!  And I just read that book, too.  Plus, I am working my way through Genesis right now as I want to read the Bible all the way through in a year.  I think my brain is fried from school right now.

Thanks!

I just saw what purports to be a screenshot from some TV news program, but I'm not sure this is real.

Airwrecka.

Daen, do you Reddit?  8)

I found this one on there too...

Which led me to google him, and yep....

He's the son of that guy.

Mostly over my husband's shoulder, but yes, I do.  ;D

Ms Airwrecka showed up on Parenting Fails, a subsection of icanhascheezburger.com as well.
I spend far too much time on cheezburger.

Came across this one yesterday - my apologies if it's been mentioned already:
Quvenzhané Wallis, actress in The Beasts of South Wild. Her mother's name is Qulyndreia, and her sister is Qunyquekya.

While I'm not sure how the latter two are pronounced, the first is kwuh-VEN-zhuh-nay.

Yikes.

I'm reading a non-fiction book about the medieval queens of England. One queen had a relative with a mistress named Dangerosa. Personally, I'd be wary of sleeping with a woman named that.  :o

A boy named Arkham in the birth announcement section of the paper. Yes, the name of the insane asylum in Batman. That poor kid...

In homage to where he was conceived?

Considering his parents weren't named Joe Kerr and Harleen Quinzel, I doubt it.  :P

I'm a bit behind, so I don't know... has anybody posted this yet?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xblh12XgQ4o&feature=player_embedded  It's pretty funny, about made-up names.
