I work with a girl named Heaven.

I have...so many issues with this name.
I'd rather have Heaven than Nevaeh. I mean what's heaven backwards? Hell?

DMV.

What does DMV. mean?

Heh. Department of Motor Vehicles...and yes, it's pretty accurate to say that it's heaven backwards.

I don't understand what the Department of Motor Vehicles has to do with anything. I'm not from the USA, so it's very likely that I'm missing something that is totally obvious to everyone else.

DMVs are notorious as being places where you spend hours and hours waiting and the staff is rude and nasty and it takes forever to get anything done once your number is called and you actually get to explain why you're there.

And you end up getting sent to a different area where you wait forever again.

I have seen that name.  My friend from high school, Dennis, told us once that his mom wanted to change his name when he was in grade school because someone pointed out to her that it was "sinned" spelled backwards.

A girl I went to school with got teased quite a bit when someone worked out that 'Natasha' backwards read 'Ah Satan'.  Fortunately, Nat had so much sense of humor that she started coming to school wearing horns on her head until it all blew over.

I read in the news today about a 9-year-old boy named Shjohn.

It took me a few tries pronouncing it to realize that it's probably pronounced like Sean.

Not being a native English speaker, I always thought that Sean was pronounced like "Seen", until a friend corrected me.  Shawn, no problem.  Sean, I still have a hard time "feeling" the sound.

I met a very nice lady named Jocasta today. I refrained from asking if she had a son.

I'm a native English speaker, and I still have a problem with it. Don't even get me started on Sean Bean.  ;D

Or was she married to a younger man.

That's because it's not English.  ;D It's the Irish version of the french Jean (John) because in the Irish language there is no J.

The name Sean bugs me on Sean Bean. Either you are Seen Bean or you are Shawn Bawn. You can't have it both ways sir.

I went to the Dr on monday, and the girl sitting across the way from me in the waiting room was named... Latrine.

You miss...are named after a toilet.
