A - Z Blogging Challenge: K is for

It seems K is a tricky letter to write about. Despite K being the start of my surname, I am sure you all don't want to hear about my last name in the post.
Well guess are...K is for King.

So my surname has always bought me rather good fortune. Its short and snappy to start and is equal to the number of letters in my first name.

Yes people make jokes about your names attached 'royalness' and the fact that if you are a girl why is your surname King and not Queen.

I have always found it amusing when I used to get called out in class or at an exam and in other settings. They would call 'King Adam'. I shouldn't find this so funny but I always did.
It was as if I an being called upon some official business.

King - I do wonder why some people use silly names which don't match the surname, and create names, words and rude words also.

Names to avoid with the surname King!

  1. Wayne King
  2. Lee King
  3. Mark King  
  4. Joe King

So this is a bad post, but boy K is a tricky letter. 


  1. K is a tricky letter. I like your last name, it is easy to say and remember. When I was small my last name was Machan. No one could pronounce it or spell it right. It was a royal pain, King!

  2. You should be proud of your surname. K is the most potent of all the alphabet letters. That's why such words like King, Killer, and other words inclusive of K pack a punch. The letter makes a great sound.

    It's a pleasure to meet you via the A-Z Challenge!

  3. Tell me about it. There's a lot to be exploited with a last name like King. I know from experience, as I'm sure you do. Fun post, Adam. I'm glad to have stumbled onto your blog.

  4. What about knowledge? Knowledge of the topic you're writinig about, the location etc. That's got to be a good one? :o)

  5. Hahaha I'm not going to lie, I laughed really hard at Wayne King.

  6. Thanks all! Glad you enjoyed it
