Warning: What’s My Starbucks Name? is more addictive than a skinny caramel Frappuccino.
We can’t even begin to imagine the blue-sky-thinking that resulted in Starbucks’ baristas being forced to demand your name (as well as money) in exchange for caffeine, and yet this is the situation in which we find ourselves.
In the years since this ridiculous system has been introduced, their ability to misspell even the simplest of names has become the thing of legend.
And now, thanks to the What’s My Starbucks Name? name generator, you don’t even have to leave your house to experience the frustration and confusion of having your name hilariously misspelt.
The genius name generator is the work of Justin Hook (who also happens to be a writer on the Fox show Bob’s Burgers), and is totally addictive.
We gave it a go (or a million) and here are some of the incredibly accurate (as in accurate for Starbucks, not accurate spellings of our actual names) results we got…
First up I started with my name, Siam (admittedly a pretty obscure name), as all good egomaniacs would. I was given the perfectly simply Starbucks name of Sum.
Then I opted for Alison, in honour of my fellow Metro.co.uk lifestyler Alison Lynch. The result was the gloriously not-quite-right, Alexon.
Finally, I thought I’d give our freelancer’s name a shot. She’s called Sarah. Surely they couldn’t mess that up?
But in true Starbucks style, they did.
Anyway, enough about us. Get yours (and your mates… and their mates… and your cats) Starbucks names, here. Read more…
