On bad names (also from Hebrew): one of the Israelis in my Hebrew class had
an original last name of Lipshitz (it was changed, for reasonably obvious
reasons, when her family immigrated).  Additionally, her parents were going
to her name her Osnat, pronounced Oh snot.  She often complains that her
parents must not have been too bright if they wanted to name their baby
Osnat Lipshitz.
