Top Mispronunciations of Sarah McLachlan’s Name

Like Milla Jovavich, Canadian siren Sarah McLachlan has a name that’s difficult to spell or pronounce from memory. Undoubtedly (used here in the sense of “I am making it up”), Ms. McLachlan has endured people addressing her or writing of her with one or more of the following:

  • Sarah Machlachlanahan.
  • Sarah Mchlandlached.
  • O’Sherrie McLachlan (by Steve Perry, of course).
  • Shiraz McLachlan.
  • Sarah McLockedLAN.
  • Natalie Merchant.

Sure, it’s a gag that amuses me, but will I think it funny when one of these young ladies mocks me in such a fashion? Probably not; I am thin-skinned and overly sensitive.
