I’m not sure what happened to John Travolta in the moment that he was supposed to say “Idina Menzel” at the Oscars. But my man was not in a good place and the whole name-saying-thang did not go well.
It did, however, give us “Adele Dazeem.” and the subsequent Twitter account. And, courtesy of Katie in Howard, who tipped me off to this: The Travolta-fying of your name in Slate’s Adele Dazeem Name Generator!
I put in Jayn Alice and was then dubbed “Jan Allorn.”
How would John Travolta have said YOUR name?
