It’s become a rule of modern life at Starbucks that along with your grande latte, you’ll also be getting a hilariously butchered version of your name. For all those overworked and tired baristas, we really are sorry and we appreciate your struggle, but these accidental monikers are way too funny to ignore.



“Brooke.” Then again, maybe they were just making unsolicited assumptions about her financial state.

We think that’s “Margot.” We really hope that’s “Margot.”

Admittedly a toughie: This woman’s name was “Lyndall.”

Maybe the barista was just a big “Super Mario Brothers” fan.


Poor Heidi. It’s enough to make her want to run and Heid.

That’s just a mean thing to call someone.

Followed by “Cosindy.” And tangent-something. (Is there a name that you can make into a “tangent” pun?)

Becky’s a real beast.
