One Quora user explained that his niece is a teacher at a very posh private school and came across one of the most cringey names she’d ever heard.
He explained: “One year a new student started and their name (as written) was Re3dan.
“It was pronounced Reeedan!”

According the this user she was totally snooty and wouldn’t accept that people were confused by the name.
“His mum was a nightmare,” he quipped.
“She visited every teacher to insist they pronounced and wrote it correctly.”
Not only that but if any teacher ever pronounced her son’s name she made sure they were reported and got a formal letter of complaint.

“Apparently, the son was as obnoxious as his Mum.”
