When I was little, my dad had a friend named Theresa. He always talked about her and about what a good-hearted person she was. Thing is, she lived in another state so I never met her. I only heard my dad talking about how kind and caring she was. So I concluded that she was in fact Mother Theresa.

When I was little, I thought that babies were born with a metal name tag. I'm not sure when I discovered that was not true. It may have been when my mother showed me her list of baby names, and told me how she picked mine.

I used to believe Monty Hall was a place instead of a man. Let's Make A Deal was before my time and I only knew Monty's name from the Monty Hall problem. I thought "Monty Hall" was the building where the game show took place.

too much game shows

I used to think people with old-lady sort of names (Helen, Betty, Betsy, etc) would age twice faster than anybody else. I also felt special because my name was a young-ish sort of name!

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'.

When I was about 3, our neighbor had a baby. Her son, who was my age, ran over to us and told us that his mom had a girl. Well, my parents asked him what her name was. He said "Banana Gold". Of course, my parents were completely baffled about why the baby was named Banana Gold. They spent a while figuring out what Kevin really meant. It turned out that the baby's name was Amanda Nicole.

In gradeschool I had a friend named Renee. For about five months I thought her name was Grenade. My mom said, "are you sure it's not Renee?" I told her, "No, it's Grenade." and she looked at my dad with a knowing smile.

Both my parents coincidentally have the same last names, so when I was little, I always thought that you can only marry people with the same last names. i.e. your brothers/sisters...

When I was little I believed that a person had two names, one when they were a "child" and one when they are a "adult"
For example, I asked my mom one day( her name is viki) what her name was when she was a kid and she laughed at me.

I was around 4.

I used to believe that God's name was Howard. It wasn't until I was in Junior High that I realized that the prayer was "Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name" and not "Our Father who art in Heaven, Howard be thy name"

There was an aquarium called "Atlantis Marine World" near where my brothers and I grew up. This was the first place my brother heard the word "marine", so he thought "Marines" were people who worked at aquariums.

Ironically, he is now going to a military academy (to be in the Army, not the Marines.)
