When I was little, I named a Barbie doll 'Malaysia' because it was embossed on her back. At the time I thought it was pronounced muh-LAY-see-uh. I did the same with the word 'Mattel'.
Young me was kind of dumb.

I don't know, I think I remember seeing this on my best friend's long list. Pretty sure I would be able to talk her into something else though when the time comes
