This past Thursday, comedian Hasan Minhaj stopped by Ellen to speak with the titular host, Ellen DeGeneres.

Seconds into the interview, DeGeneres mispronounces his name.


In all likelihood, most of us have been mispronouncing his name for quite some time. She says HaSAN MinHAJ, stressing the second syllable in his first and last name.

Minhaj decided to clear things up once and for all, and explain that his name is in fact HAsan MINhaj, stressing the first syllable of his first and last name.

A video of the interchange can be seen below.

Minhaj made the good point that if people learned how to say actor Ansel Elgort's name correctly, they could learn how to say his correctly. He also joked that he sometimes gives Timothée Chalamet's name at Starbucks, figuring it'll be easier for the baristas.

Minhaj's parents were in the audience to cheer him on, which made the discussion of Minhaj's name all the more special and important.

Some related.




Many were impressed by his choice to take the moment to explain it.



People's names are important.

Thank you Hasan Minhaj for the correction!

And not just that, but just how nasty people are? Why would you want to shake hands with them?

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...
