    >This reminds me of a true story I know.A friend of mine met a girl in Italy.Her name was pronounced “Oaranngodda”Which sounds very pretty in an Italian accent.When asked the origin of the name it was discovered that her mom had been in the US while pregnant, and saw the name on a sign for: Orangeade 🙂
