I knew someone named Anjula once.... pronounced ahn-juu-la. A friend of
mine's middle name is Bryony - her first name is Elizabeth, but everyone
calls her Bryony. A close friend is Devon, and her mother is Tana, which, of
course, reminds me of Tanaqui (which I think is one of the loveliest names I
have every seen...)

My last name, Self, is quite weird, and ripe for plenty of lame jokes
(There's Elizabeth, all by her SELF! hahahaha - not), though none as bad as
someone I once knew named Buttz. I always felt terribly sorry for the quite
prolific family.

It also goes badly with my first name, especially as I had a problem with
lisping when I was younger *wince*
