I was just musing about Verity (I'm not pregnant) when it occured to me that a flower + Verity combo, such as Lily Verity, could be unfortunately misread as Lily Variety...

Would you make this mistake? And would you mind? Does it even matter, since only a handful of people will actually care about your middle?

Am also interested if anyone has come across any actual names that could be read or mistaken as sentences.

I've never mistaken someone's name as a sentence, but people misread and mispronounce my name all the time, it can happen even if you have a simple name.

However, I think the more important point is Verity sounds like someone with a lisp/accent trying to say rarity. So if someone were to say it out loud, that could be confusing, such as when she was introducing herself, etc.

No I don't think I'd misread it, but Lily Verity doesn't even flow
