No, he's just clueless when it comes to certain celebrities. My goal is to have him be able to identify Ewan at an instant.

That's a good goal. I would my husband if he didn't recognize Ewan.

He's geting there. He now refers to him by his actual name, rather than calling him Obi-Wan...

I'd have to give bitch face to anyone who called Ewan by Obi-wan or any of his other character names.

Or, even worse, if they said his name wrong.

When I first showed him Ewan's name spelled out, he said pronounced it EE-wawn (wawn rhymes with lawn). At least he didn't say it like ewok...

I hate when people say Ooo-wen. And, unfortunately, a lot of people say it that way.

I used to pronounce it Ian, but that's a real name. I guess it's good no one has pronounced it Eyore? I also used to pronounce Cillian wrong. I didn't know it was a name until Cillian Murphy came along.

Some people still say Silly-uhn instead of Killian.

^I used to say it that way in my mind. I didn't realize that C's were like K's in gaelic names. I figured it out before I ever said it out loud, thankfully.

That's exactly how I used to say it, and now I'm mortified because how can Cillian/Killian possibly sound like Silly-uhn? Same with Ciaran. I had no idea how to pronounce that until recently. I guess all Irish names beginning with a C make a K sound?

I guess we should all be relieved that we have easy names to say. Harder to screw them up (not impossible, though. )

Some people have called me Veronica, Elizabeth and Valerie. It works wonders for killing self-esteem.
