I've tried this a few times, and am wondering if anyone else has done this to see if the name you like feels funny or wonderful or get's your gut instinct going when it's said in relation to you, by a stranger when they write it on your coffee cup? They also say things out loud like, "A Tall Mocha for (insert baby name instead of adult name), here", as well.

DP and I talk baby names rather a lot, but it's nice to have a different view ... or is this all just terribly weird and embarrassing?
Latest coffee-name made me beam...

I have been known to do it (embarrassed).

Great idea.

In the first week of the new system someone famously gave Voldemort as his coffee name. When the barista picked up the cup, he faltered, then shouted out "He who must not be named". Legend.

Why not? I tried out names by standing at the bottom of the stairs and shouting "full name, get down here this minute" smile. Starbucks is a sweeter way of trialling names smile

Fairly sure since I'm a regular in my local Starbucks they'd look at me like hmm
