When I was a kid in elementary school, I saw the title "Madam" on a door in the school hallway. I didn't know what it meant, so I assumed it was a man's name, like "Adam".

I thought that the teacher in that class was a man like my dad. I got disappointed when i took french class and i saw a french woman as my teacher instead of a cool man. I got so angry and disappointed that i almost made her cry!

When I was young I used to believe that Princess Diana died because her name was Diana. (like Die+Anna)
I thought that anyone called Diana would die young and I couldn't understand why anyone would want to name their child a name with the word Die in it

When I was younger I had a book of poems that my parents used to read me. A few of the poems said they were written by 'anon' (anonymous) - I thought 'anon' was the name of a famous poet! A few years later my teacher asked me who my favourite poet was and I told her "Anon. I like Anon. I think he's very talented"

She had to explain to me what Anon actually meant...

I used to think there was a name that was spelled "Shopan" and pronounced that way and a different name spelled "Chopin" but pronounced "Choppin", like choppin' wood.

I saw the name "Chopin" in books at the library and I heard "Shopan" being said out loud on the radio, but i didn't realize those were the same name, until someone asked me what my favorite music was. She said she liked "Shopan"'s piano music and i said i liked piano music too, but I've only heard "Choppin"'s music. She laughed and told me the whole thing!

I used to think that you had to change your name when you got older, because i never saw any kids named Bertha or Sharon or any adults named Zoe or Ryan or something like that. I thought I was special because my name could be both a "kid" and "grown up" name so i didn't have to change it. I believed this until i met a walmart employee named zoey!
