Can You Spell That Please!?

I already posted compilations of interestingly unique names, both local and international, last April.
But this particular family deserves special mention – nay, Grand Prize – for the stupendously concocted appellations of their clan.

In alphabetical order, the names of the six children are:

Christomter
Culcerphinphister
Fergelsavienski
Holbertpolster
Tralinriancy
Wenhelsavienski
Zeigyspholkhanthreister

My good friend Pam was lector at the wedding of her sister to Zeigyspholkhanthreister. You can just imagine the daunting challenge that befell Pam as she announced the list of entourage members.

And who, you demand to know, are the parents of these offspring?

They are Jimmy and Juanita De La Cruz.

The couple was fed up and frustrated with the commonality of their own monikers. They thus made it their aim to exercise creativity and bestow upon their offspring distinctive names to set them apart from the crowd.

Mission accomplished, wouldn’t you say?

And it doesn’t end there.

The family’s first male grandson has been titled Gulsvertbralzermcster.

The people in Starbucks will have to construct huger cups to write these names around on.

Oh well. At least the young brood will have perfected most of the alphabet by the time they learn to write their names.

Hello there! They're actually my relatives. The father's name is Jimmy not Johnny :) haha. Then between Christomter and Wenhelz, there's one more :) Her name is Tralinriancy. There are some mistakes in the spelling :)) but it's alright. I'm just at awe that someone blogged about this.

OMG! I'm so happy to hear from you! I wonder what YOUR name is... Hahaha! ;p

As you can see, I edited my post with your corrections. Thanks! Your relatives' names are the most unique I've come across. Winner! Woot! Woot! :D

You can just call me Holvie, that will be fine. :-)
