Hello, my name is...

I thought there is nothing worse when trying to communicate with English-speaking people than having the last name "Fuka". But this guy probably has it even tougher! My sympathies...

BTW, the word "fuka" supposedly has lots of different meanings in Japanese (including "shark", "improper" nad "cuddly").
