Why Can Nobody Get Cara Delevingne’s Name Right?!
It’s Cara’s birthday and we’re campaigning for everyone to learn the correct spelling and pronunciation of ‘Delevingne’.
Life can be tough when you have a name that isn’t pronounced like it’s spelt. Today, on Cara Delevingne’s 23rd birthday, we’re checking out all the people who have been thrown off by phonetics, silent letters and generally being a bit dim.
There was that time a high street chain renamed her altogether.
Geordie Shore’s Gaz Beadle definitely can’t say it right.
Back in 2013, Geordie Shore’s Gary Beadle spoke of his (odd) friendship with Cara, admitting, “She followed me on Twitter. I didn’t know who she was. I went to my mates, ‘Cara Delavengey – I still can’t say her name – is following me, who’s she?’
“On the phone, I went, ‘Is your name Delavengey?’ and she said I could call her that.”
Then Reese Witherspoon, drunk in a lift at the Met Ball, slaughtered the pronunciation of ‘Delevingne’.
At least she didn’t hit Jay-Z.
A$AP Ferg Facetimed Cara for a little ‘Dope Walk’… but he has her surname spelt wrong in his phone.
Kim Kardashian wasn’t even CLOSE to getting it right in her caption for this Instagram snap.
And, of course, the Good Day Sacramento news anchor couldn’t even get her first name right.
For anyone who’s still confused, this is how you say Cara Delevingne:
