Sorry, Charlie

I woke up this morning and one of my first thoughts was "sorry, Charlie." Which, of course, got me thinking about "even Steven." I started feeling bad for people with easily rhymable names. This sympathy carried on for a few minutes before I remembered that my name rhymes with Bina, Gina, Rina, Sheena, Xena, etc. Why that was one of my first thoughts, I'm still not sure, but at least my name isn't one of those "is it a guy or a girl" names. Like Randy.

Good one Dina!

Growing up I learned that my name rhymed with melon. "Helen Melon Watermelon" Funny it was only the guys that would do that do me. What else can you expect form grade school boys? But what really topped the cake was in hight school. A guy took a stack of post-it notes and posted "Helen rhymes with felon" all over the hallway on the second floor.

Aren't boys ltcou?

even though i dont really like my name- sometimes i just appreciate how mainstream it is. there are too many saras in the world to rhyme and make fun of the name and i have yet to hear someone mispronounce the name.

you name sounds like Bina, Gina and Rina?

I was thinking that it was pronounced "dinah" akin to someone from massachusetts might say "dinner"

Of course you could be mean-a, then Katrina like nobody I've ever seen-a, lay waste to a marina. Worse than Ike on Tina after he drinks whiskey from a cantina...

Thank Hashem my name doesn't rhyme with anything and therefore no one has ever called me any kind of name whatsoever.

MCAryeh doesn't really rhyme with anything. But in my former life, I got Michael Michael Motorcycle in kindergarten. What I can't figure out is how they knew my middle name was also Michael....

hot pink, believe me, neither would I have believed it, if people hadn't stumbled over them, one at a time...

And it's a wonder why "Michael" and "motorcycle" were rhymed, when it could have been bicycle, icicle, etc. And also, being called Michael, Michael Motorcycle doesn't mean anything. It's just a rhyme. Whereas my nicknames...oy.

My uncle used to call me "Ian the meAn machIne" (roll it around on the tounge until it rhymes...there you go). Also Ian MacBeAN(again, roll it around). A lot of people try to shorten my name which I don't get. Its only two syllables and the first two letters are vowels!

Adam Murray makes a good point, it easily could be pronounced like a "Baaastin dinaah" Have you ever heard that song "someones in the kitchen with Diiiiiina, someones in the kitchen I know-oh-oh, someones in the kitchen with Diiiiina, strumin' on the old banjo."
