Horror movie name: La/a
i c wat u did thar!
la hyphen a? its not even a dash!
i understand your hatred, pleasant stranger.
Don't hate everyone, just hate her parents. Or, rather her single-mom.
I remember seeing this in the weird news section on Yahoo awhile back!
La-a's mom was SO upset with people at her child's school who couldn't pronounce her stupid name:
"THE DASH DON'T BE SILENT."
That's a joke my father emailed me years ago! Total crap!
Some people don't think when they name their children. It's sad on their part, but funny for the rest of us.
There's a La-a at DPHS too
The dash don't be silent...
That's what happens when your mom is a crack whore
I would get a name change once i was of legal age... Poor la-a
my mom works at a hosptial and one set of twins had the names "miprincess" (My-princess) and "miprecious" (My-precious) it's rediculous...
My moms a social worker, you think that's bad, what about aspririn or maybe one of four kids named 123 and 4
ha ha wow i didnt think anyone else had that name in the world...when i first heard the name and how it was spelled it wasn't even funny...i felt so sad
WTFreaaaaak?! thaaats a stupid name; its probably FAKEE! ;o
A woman came into the clinic i work at with this name. Sucks. Really sucks.
back and forth forever
Fucking Niiiigggeeerrrr!!!!!!!! Hahahahs
Sorry to all who cry "fake"; I'd like to believe it was too. Unfortunately, I've met a La-a. Also, a Qristyl.
it's not fake, I know a girl by that name. In Peekskill I think? And the racism is unnecessary, you need a life.
Knew a girl who had the same exact name, pronounced the same way. I died a little inside.
I didn't get this at first but wooow that's so funny/ sucks so bad!
I got a chain email about a girl name le-a... Aka Ladasha
this is not a joke people I've me a La-a and she gets pissed when people don't pronounce it la dash uh...never met them but I'm sure her parents are nuts.
the child was born in Omaha... true story. Except it was Ah-A (Adasha) not La-A
Yeah my dad had a client named La-a. It's real. And extremely unfortunate. That's what's wrong with America.
The fact that all of you got this as an email a couple years ago should make it more believable. It's that easier that it gets into the heads of stupid people. My mom is a neonatal nurse and one day I visited her unit and there was a baby named Le-ah ledasha. There are people that stupid out there.
It's not crap, I've met a La-a myself. Unfortunately.
that's ridiculous. i see why you hate everyone
if it's real then why aren't there records in the social security database? Idiots.
SHE WENT TO NORTH CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL!
This came from a joke I heard about a year ago. Goddamn fake shit you cocksucker.
no fucking way! one of my friends was telling me today that she knew someone with this name....
hahahahahahahHahahaha 10:51! hahahaahahahahaha
i've heard this joke so many times.
Pretty sure all of you thinking this is fake needs to fuck off. Ridiculous, yes. Fake, no.
I know that TFLN has gone down the hill recently, but even if the text is fake, the name sure as shit isn't. Good lord, grow up people. You're not going to get a damn award for "calling out" a fake, so get over it.
It's prob wat she goes by 8:32 Crazy black woman
Calm the fuck down, you spiteful douchebag.
there's a girl at my sister's high school named "La-ia"... it's "Lah-dash-ee-uh"
Hahahaha she went to my school last year. Not
fake at all. That's really how you pronounce her name.
sad thing is, i've met a girl with that name..
Bullshit fa sho! I heard this joke when I was in high school, along with orongelo (orange jello) and lemongelo (lemon jello)
people who know a la-a....do you actually have to say "dash"???
My "favorites" from my caseworker mum: Female said "fee-mal-ee" and Vagina "Vah-Gena". You cannot cure stupid.
Wow guarentees that you go nowhere far in life. Really, how can you be taken seriously with some of these messed up ass names dumb people give their kids?? I'd go get my name changed asap lol
1:28-absolutely hilarious I lol'd
This girl goes to my school
Who cares this shit made me LOL so hard
I guess I believe it but I got this as an email about a year ago...
I hate her parents. And some residual hate may fall on her.
I met a girl at basketball camp in middle school named K'La. That's the closest thing I've got. But by god it's still stupid.
I had a customer named Titty once. And another's last name was Suksomboti, and I pronounced it Suck Somebody and he corrected me, it's Suck Some Booty.
Way to keep it classy in Westchester...
It's on Snopes. Won't let me post the link, but...yeah. Snopes says it's of "undetermined" veracity and there's no Le-a or La-a in any Social Security database...
Doncha know? the 'dash' ain't silent! Though I'm really surprised there's more La-a's out there... really sad state for society
I seriously just cried.
My friend named her daughter jade-a
So "jade-dash-uh?" I love names that have forced, awkward pauses in them, don't you?
this is so true....hello UT!
there was a le-a in a class my friend student taught. she though her name was leah, and got a severe tongue lashing.
I had that student last year. Along with an ABCDEF (I kid you not) and Anne (pronounced Annie)
Just bc you heard this name a year ago doesn't mean this text is fake. There is more than one ignorant black person out there that heard the name and liked it and used it for her child.
Weird, my friend told me that his dad knew a La-a the other day.
She works at target. I saw her name tag
i have a friend who's a teacher and he's got a Li-a in his class this year. he asked her mom and she replied "the dash not be silent."
So, this one time, I met a girl named Bob. Short for Bobbie. But she wanted to be called Bob. 95% sure she's into vagina.
Oh, and Dick Cole. Not Rich, Not even Richard, straight up Dick Cole
and to you dumb shits who say this is fake, it's not. there is a girl who goes to my college with that name.
Ah that girl is a cunt she Bitched out this girl who said her name wrong, who says "la dash a" when n they see la-a that's such a stupid name
Fake as shit I heard this at work s few weeks ago
Not fake... I love how these people think they know every person's name in the entire world. It's true, my brother had a client with some name with a "-" in in pronounced "dash"
Racist urban legend.
Omg. Either there is more than one girl in the world with that name or she was in my fifth grade class. It was funny watching every sub try to figure it out.
It's amazing how racist some people can be when they are allowed to be anonymous.
I can't believe how this name is propagating all over the place. Sad thing is, of course, that "-" is not a dash. The name should be pronounced "lag hyphen uh".
there was a girl at my old highschool with that name. no lie.
It may have started as a joke, but I'm a teacher and I had a student last year who had almost the same name. She came to the school in the middle of the year and I saw her name on her paper work as Le-ah. So when I met her I called her Leah, but she corrected me. It's pronounced. Le/dash/uh. Sad but very true.
I heard the "La-a" name as a joke a long time ago. No if someone named their kid La~ (La Tilde), I'd believe that.
the orangejello and lemongello twin names are ripped off from a book by dan jenkins - i think "Life its Ownself" No doubt there are now real people with those names, the book is like twenty five yrs old. Just sayin'.
This is one reason why I hate black people.
And to people who think I'm racist no. I hate my own color as much as black people.
This is totally real. I call people for my college who show they're interested in learning more about the university. Her name was spelled La-a too and I pronounced it "Laa" and pretty much got chewed out. Apparently it's "La Dash a"
My mom worked a call as a paramedic. Twins names were lemonjello and orangejello. WTF?
I work at a resturant and a woman with the same name made a reservation, and then got pissed off we spelled it Ladasha.
A girl in my sixth grade class yelled at a substituute cuz her name was spelled Afrika and the sub said Africa instead of afreeka. The girl said, "my name is afreeka, can't you read?"
One of my awesome white trailer trash friends named her girl 'Intensity' pretty bad huh? her full name was actually 'Intensity Divine'.
Quite sadly, it's not an urban legend. I work at a criminal defense firm and... let me just tell you. We keep a list of hilarity. My personal favorite is 'Qu'antne Quant'ne' f/m, pronounced 'Kwatnee Kwantaine'. That's right, spelled the same, pronounced totally differently.
And also a Tikki, Martini and Tekela. No relation to one another.
Not that white trash names are any better. Nevaeh and Elcarim, anyone?
I call bullshit. This is an old joke.
My names la-a and the dash don't be silent. WTF you ppl calin fake. You just not creative.
I've met 3 la-a's in my life. It's not that original anymore. If I didn't know any I would think it's laya.
What I find funny is that htese fuckin spooks can't just politely correct you when you pronounce their dumbass names wrong; they gotta get all up in your shit like you're dissin them on purpose!
how could the OBGYN nurses allow a baby to leave the hospital with that name?
Honestly. This ghetto bullshit makes me want to get a job processing birth certificates. Any time somebody told me to put a retarded fucking name like that on one, I'd tell them to try the fuck again.
There's one in Michgan too. What the fuck are we going to do about this?!
i dont know why everyone's like "fake not real"
whatevs, my moms a teacher and one of her kids was named la-a.
...I know a white girl who's middle name is La-a. Whaaaat.
I love how many people call fake. I actually went to a school with a La-a.
actually this is true, my friends' mom is a teacher and has a student named le-a (ledasha). i said i didn't believe her and she showed me her roll call lol
lies not real i actally no a la-a and told a bunch of people and they told and they told and u found out and posted this
My sister is a teacher and she has a girl named "La-Ea" (luh dash e a) and she also teaches triplets that are named "Mercedes, Porscha, and Lincoln (2 girls and a boy). Some of the names these days are crazy.
I heard this one like last week.
La`a means sacred or holy in Hawaiian.
Got to be either mount vernon or Yonkers. Am I right???
Fake. Heard this a year ago.
She went to ghs!!!!
Holy shit this is the weirdest thing cuz my friend was telling me the other day about a girl just like that
My aunts a teacher and that was one of her students names!
hahahahahaha omg i am an xray tech and i xrayed a girl named le-a (pronounced le dash uh).. prob was the same person... how stupid
I weep for humanity..
Yea, we used to laugh our asses off at how stupid the mother was for naming the girl that when we heard about it.
definitely thought this was just an urban legend...my personal favorite is Boomquisha
Omg I know someone with that name, fucking retarded.
Urban legend! Not true
My friend and I totally met someone with the exact same name.
if you gotta be racist n shit don't say nothin ok, ur fuckin rude and nobody wants to hear it
I wanna hear it. No idea why nigs can't give their children normal, pronounceable names.
This does happen. Fat lady at the clinic snapped on a doctor cause her name was La-a and the doctor pronounced it wrong.
This is so fake. I heard this joke months ago.
Hahah it's funny either way.
I know a girl named Rav'n.... people and their typographical ways...
My friend's mom works as a speech teacher in a Detroit Public School and has a student with that name. She found out from the girl's mom that "You hafta say thuh dash"
Fake, this was on Fark like 3 weeks ago.
Sounds like a total cunt.
I am outraged!
Prince used stupid symbols to be addressed by. Why cant this lady?!
Rev. Al Sharpton
I teach swim lessons and one of my students was named la-a!!!! She got so mad when I mispronounced it! Like I'm supposed to know ghetto names like hers!
might as well just name your kid watermelondria or unitedstatesofameriqueefa or kooladria or bon`qui`qui
Or Laquinetta or Boomqueesha
totally real, we know one, since this is 917, its probably the same chick who once lived on long island
true story, my father has a patient with that name. he pronounced it without saying the dash and the mother flipped on him.
A friend of mine that is a teacher had a boy names Shithead (shuh- theed) in class. His parents didn't think twice about that??
That one's old, too. One of my friends uses Shithead as his ghetto bitch name.
Super lame... Got this email like 2 years ago.. It was almost funny then
this is still epic months later Ms Wind\nlove la-a\nlol
this girl goes to my school... hahah keep it classy Riverview.
Amen 9:51. A-fucking-men
I ACTUALLY KNOW HER!!!
That's from a movie
Yeeeeeah. Nice try. There's already been a list circulating around with ghetto names on it and this is one of them. Also on the list is Orange Jello (pronounced OR-ange gel-O). Google it...I'm sure this person did.
Fake, fake, fake, fake, fake, fake.......
I know where one such person attended middle school, so, yeah, this isn't an urban legend...at least one person with this name really exists.
i know her she goes to garfield high school!!!!!
The actual person who brought it to court was
"le-a" with an E because the teacher
pronounced it Le-uh but it's really luh dash uh
But nice last nighter
12:15v1 is that pronounced "singledashmom"? ^.^
12:30v1 you suck for saying "hella". go back to 2002 where you're needed for your horrible use of outdated slang terms.
thats what you get for going to howard
worked in a call center & customer called in. I PROMISE you his name was Ahshit. yep, "Ah-shit". I also know a woman named Dina Saur"whose son is best friends with my brother.
Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck.......
I agree with 12:32...this is bullshit. What happened to this site?
This isn't even close to original, it's been around for so long. This site fucking blows lately.
Crazy ass ghetto names.......
whaaaaaaaat! no way thats not true!
she went to brockton high school in brockton mass
couldnt tell you whether this is fake or not but there are two girls where I live named Syphilis (siff-Y-lis) and Gonorrhea (guh-nore-ea)
Was just on Ruminations too... I'm guessing this one was specifically ripped from there.
One of my instructors was just talking about a baby she delivered who was named that.
haha so true 8:01!!! <3
one of my friends has a job where she calls people for telephone surveys and she got flipped out on during one call because she had trouble pronouncing "La-a" correctly. so yeah, it's actually a real name.
to all of you who think this is 'fake' or an 'urban legend' or a fuckin 'joke', this is a real person's name. way more than just one person. just because your rich snobby ass can't understand creativity doesn't mean it isn't real.
Illiterate stupidity =/= creativity
URBAN LEGEND. everyone claiming they know a "la-a" is either a troll or an attention whore. nobody has that name.
This isn't fake! I hella know someone with this name!
I think I know you. I've headr this before.
413 LOLZ why white ppl dont try heheheheheh
Not an urban legend. I work in a hospital and have seen de-sha pronounced de dash uh, so these people do exist
thats like the oldest viral joke i ever herd.
Full support to 11:33.
This is on YouTube when you search 60 ghetto names... The second or third video that shows up mentions this name "luh dash uh"
638....you're def right...so mt Vernon or yonkers
I don't know how true this is, but I've got two more stupid names for you: Shitonya, said how it is spelled and Damerica Dabeautiful.
this is true. I know someone with this name
I just heard a girl telling a guy this, like it happened to her. *sigh*
I know someone with this name, she's good friends with my brother!
my friend who teaches in Chicago also has a student by this name
Tomeizure .... said Tom - Uh - Nee - Shuh ..... htf does that work? ... and there is a La-a in north La. Her mother was on the news talking about how her daughter's name was constantly being said incorrectly and wanted to know why "white people don't try"
guys this is a legit name, no lie. my friend told me about someone she worked with this summer and her name was la-a, showed my friend her birth certificate and everything. so get your naive heads out of your assholes and quit thinking everything on tfln is fake
Yea theres a chick at my school with that name. its pathetic.
My aunt totally was her nurse at the emergency room. La-a is a hit in our family.
Faaaaake heard it 100 times
People who say it's fake-- STFU
Not real. U suck dick tfln!!
Someone def sent this in and made it up. Everyones heard that
Friend of mine teaches 1st grade. At the beginning of every school year she pees herself laughing at some of the names on her class list. The best was LaTreen.
It might have started out as a joke, but people are using that shit to name their kids now.
The dash don't be silent.
"Bullshit fa sho! I heard this joke when I was in high school, along with orongelo (orange jello) and lemongelo (lemon jello)"
That isn't BS. I didn't know them, but a kid I went to school with showed me 2 kids in his yearbook named Lemonjello and Orangejello. Dead serious.
This is most definitely true! My friend's class that she teaches has a la-a. Got the same reaction when she said it La A no dash. Mother of this girl had to be on crack
1:33 is stupid
that doesn't even make sense
ooh I knew someone like that
by hate everyone, you mean you hate minorities, right?
A little girl at the elementary school where I work is named la-a. We had been pronouncing it "Lah-ah". Her mother then came into the office and said (direct quote) "The dash don't be silent".
This is bullshit, that has been around for years, do the whole world a favor and eat shit and die
I believe that people name their kids stupid shit all the time. Even change their names to stupid shit. That football player changed his last name to ocho cinco because his number is eighty- five but eighty-five in Spanish isn't ocho cinco. It's ochenta y cinco. Just sayin.
p.s. The parnthases are silent get it right
actually..i know someone with the name la-a, and i live right next to the area code 914...might be the same girl
The dash ain't silent. Ha ha ghetto ass
I know an Indian guy called SHITTY not joke.
for everyone saying its an "urban legend" because you've heard it before, sorry to say...the fact that you've heard it before doesn't make it untrue. it just means that there's more than 1 person out there with the name. my mom definitely had a student named la-a.
and yeah, the saddest part is that its not even a dash, but a hyphen.
WTF. I would stab my mother in the ovaries if she named me that.
Omgoodness! My friend was telling me about a girl in her class named La-a. She said its an innercity thing.. gotta love it. Could be worse, there are kids out there named Lemonjello and Orangejello (lemon-jello, orange-jello)
No the name is legit. I went to school with a chick named La-a.
Nah this shits legit. A girl was in my class last tear what that name
That's a name from a joke in an email that has
Been going around for years...
It's actually spelled Le-a......most people pronounce it "Leiah"!
And how do people pronounce it "Leiah?" If I had to call someone out of a crowd, and the name I had written down was "Leiah," I'd say "I need to know whose illiterate inbred parents don't know how to spell Leah"
my best friend is a high school teacher and told me there's a student at her school named la-a. at first i thought this was impossible, but it's true. it wows me each time i think about it...
that girl goes to the same college as me! her mom called in pissed because no one could pronounce her name right
Sooo old. Quit trying so hard to be on here, cunt
omg! this really is true. my english teacher told us about a student she once had with that name. mind boggling.
And this is why I hate getto nigs, wetbacks and white trash.... Just sayin
One of the very best
Yet. I'll bet she is an f'ing genius too.
Pretty sure that girl is from Tulsa
haha love it.
I definitely met someone on the bus a month ago who had given this name to her baby.
ew. I didn't realize that was actually a name many people used.
Porn star name: La-v-a (v=gash)
i know of a girl named "la'a" and it is supposed to be pronounced ladasha... you know its bad when the mom doesnt even know that that is an apostrophe, not a dash.
and - isn't a "dash," it's a hyphen, goddammit.
Yeah.... There's another one in Ohio....
my sister knows some guy whos name is pronounced "yum" but he spells it DUNG hahahahah so fucking funny why? whyy would anyone do that to their kid hah.
My wife is a teacher and has a kid with that name
oh my gosh, are you taking college classes in the Houston area....if so...my aunt was one of her instructors and says she's a raging bitch about her name
i got a email from my high school english teacher about someone with that name...a lady named her daughter that in i wanna say Louisiana.......lol..sad world
i don't understand the racism. Is that necessary? White people give their kids dumb ass names too. Pilot Inspektor? (the child of Jason Lee) Apple? Audio Science? I mean, really? Dumb is dumb, it doesn't need a color.
Fake. I've heard this story from a friend of mine years ago. I doubt it is the same person. I'm not saying the upload is fake but the person who sent the text was lying
1246, what about nosmo'king?
my friends name is female pronounced fuh-mal-ee because her mom thought the doctors named her child for her. people are so fucking stupid
i swear i am a teacher at the school. and I have had her in class.....
Joke's on the darkies! When these names aren't 'fashionable' anymore, It's the Jameses and the Lauras and the Matthews who will be laughing at them ...so nothing will change.
this joke is really old, i'm surprised it made it on here. blech.
I was at my mom's office (she's a probation officer) and one of the files she had on her desk was for someone named Le-a, pronounced Ledasha. I've also seen 'Hoeson", because he is the son of a hoe. Classy.
hahhahaha u dont happen to go to a college in western pa do you?
you should refuse to call her la dash a and just keep calling her La ah. tell her your going to say it the way it looks like it should be said
Completely true! I work in admissions for a southern school, and we had a girl named La-a apply, the "-" pronounced DASH.
This is bullshit and made up. Fuck you guy.
this isn't false, but it's not true the way they claimed it happened either...there was a big article on yahoo about this the other day, i'm sure they got it from there
@3:28: WTF? Speak English.
This can't be real. Iv herd this like a million times
Fuck all ya niggas that think this shit is fake! I know a bitch with this name! Stop saying this shit is fake when you don't even fucking know! Fuck you!
I've met a girl with that name haha
Ps it's pronounced Jada I guess drugs make u think weird yes she's white
My ex gf taught a girl first name "myprecious" last name "dream".
You go to randolph high?!
