It's no secret that Starbucks isn't great with the ould names. 

Yet they insist on requesting your name every single time. 

There are conspiracy theories surrounding why the f*ck people's names up time and time again. 

Some say they purposefully spell names wrong to encourage people to share pictures of their drink on social media - all publicity is good publicity, after all. 

Like the time they confused Clint with... 

Clint

And Virginia with... 

Virginia

Not the most complex of names now, in fairness. 

But we do understand that Irish names are slightly harder to grasp - especially for non-natives.

Sure, Aine is an unusual one for someone who has never heard it before...

But ONION?! Are you having a feckin' laugh Starbucks? 

Our condolences to Aine and all the struggles she's gonna face with her name in America this summer. Maybe it's best to just adopt an easier name, such as Amy, for the next few months?
