What's your IKEA name?

Oh, excuse me, I mean what name would you have if you were a product made by a famous Swedish furniture company whose corporate colors are yellow and blue? Find out here, if you'd like five seconds of Friday silliness.

Bummer. oh well I kept clicking enter and it started adding Js and extra Ks etc. which was much more fun. Thanks for posting I needed some silliness this friday.

Ha! Rebekah, you're so Swedish already, clearly.

Natalie, did it look like a swear word? Mine looked like something a snake would say.

Millie said...

Mine is Mylli! Quite cool! Maybe I'll get one...

Gingerella said...

Mine was quite different; SVENRA although, it made me think of Swedish parents who wanted a boy... and got a girl.

And I seem to be a chair.

Condo Blues said...

Did the vikings ever invade Germany? My dog's name is Blitzkrieg. It came back as BLYTZKRÄIG.

We never call him Blitzy. It would go against the song that inspired his name Blitzkrieg Bop.

I tried again with his breed Pekingese it came out PEKINNGESJ.

Julie T. said...

Thanks for sharing. So funny! My husband's name is practically unreadable: Eestjtmmanvik (Eastman). At least mine was close. Juliet turned into Julait (with the double dots over the "a").

Makes it sound exotic.

Jessica Jones said...

When in doubt, add punctuation, I guess!

Anonymous said...

My name is Safa and I guess that is also a Swedish name because my ikea name is also Sáfa

Jessica Jones said...

Interesting.
