My Name is Joanne LeFlufy And There Is Nothing Fluffy About It. – Kamloops Photographer Jo LeFlufy

I had an exhibition booth at the big Bridal Fair at TRU on Sunday and, by the end of the day, it really struck a cord with me that so many people seem to have difficulty with my last name. Although my maiden name, Johnson, was, admittedly, much easier to decipher, I don’t think there is any rocket science involved in the name LeFlufy.

My last name is pronounced Leh Floofy. It’s not Luh Fluffy or Leh Flurry (yes, many people actually think there is a magical rrr sound in the name) or anything else. If it were Luh Fluffy (like a cute little, fuzzy bunny), there would be a u and TWO f‘s in it – as in Luh Fluffy.

The other thing that makes me laugh about this is that my husband’s nickname is Fluf (pronounced Floof) and his friends have been calling him this for many years, yet many of them still pronounce our last name in the cute, fuzzy bunny way. WT?

I hope this clears up the confusion for all of you and I really hope that I won’t have to spend the rest of my life correcting people when they pronounce our name incorrectly. If this happens, I may just have to change my name back to Johnson and avoid all the hassle…just kidding Gregory!!!
