My aunt married a man named John who was of Italian decent. Somehow he got the nick name Dego and it stuck. Up until high school I thought Dego was Italian for John. I had been calling Italian people named John Dego for years thinking I was showing others how smart I was for knowing something from another language.
I used to think that Anonymous was a really famous person
I used to believe that some first names were specifically for children and some were specifically for adults.

when i was a kid, i thought no one could possibly have the same first name as me. When i heard of someone else with my name i would get mad.

I used to believe that Anon was one person, and i just kept saying wow he is on here a lot. Then i realized what it was lol i felt very stupid!

I used to believe that there was a girl's name written and pronounced "Feebee" and an entirely different girl's name spelt "Phoebe" and pronounced 'fobe' like 'earlobe'.
When I see the name in print, I stll find it hard to pronounce it 'feebee'.
I thought that my parents didn't have names at all. I believed that we called them mom and dad because they didn't have real names to actually called them. I was so shocked when my mom was on the phone and said "Hi, my name is Theresa". I went up to her, tapped her on the shoulder and said "YOU have a name?!"
I used to believe I was named after a tree part. My middle name is Lynn, which, to a four-year-old, sounds a lot like tree limb. I was always upset at my parent for such a lame name even after I found out its proper pronounciation and that it had nothing to do with trees.
I used to believe that "Anon" was a person who made up a million stories that he used to believe in. I thought it was ridiculous that they would allow so many stories from one person.
This was as of ten minutes ago.
I used to believe that when you grew old you had to change your name to an "old people" name, because I never saw little kids named Martha, or bertha or anything like that. Then I met a girl name Martha. LOL
I used to believe that former Washington, DC mayor Marion Barry was two people, Mary and Barry...and Mary was his wife. When I was 10 I saw it spelled out on the news and finally realized it was just one person.
When I was in 2nd grade we moved to a new neighborhood with a lot of Mexican familie. I was playing with some kids and was just about to ask one boy what his name was when another kid yelled, "Hey, Zeuss!" and the boy I was talking to turned to the kid who yelled. I thought, "Zeuss- what a cool name!" and proceded to call him Zeuss for about a year. Then one day i was showing off my new markers writing everyone's names in rainbow colors. I asked my friend Zeuss how to spell his name. "J-E..." is how he started. I thought it was weird that Zeuss started with a J but I kept writing. "S-U-S" was the rest. When I was done and looked at what I wrote I realized- "Jesus" not "Hey, Zeuss". It didn't help that some of his family members called him 'Sus for short.
I also thought his baby brother was Chinese because his name was Meeho. I heard his mother say things like "It's okay, Meeho. Don't cry". Not until my second year of high school Spanish did I find out that "mijo" is short for "mi hijo" which means "my son" and is a common term of endearment.
I used to believe that the word prima donna was actually pre-Madonna
I used to believe that Oliver Stone and Oliver North were the same person. I was very confused about how a liberal filmmaker could be involved in a political scandal with President Reagan.
