"My formal name is Bonita, and it has given me no end of grief. First, my parents pronounce it: "BONita" which I do not believe is correct. Second, everyone always wants to pronounce it BENita, which is also not correct. Third, people tend to think that I have Spanish parents, which I do not. I have been asked if I am Hispanic, which I am not, or from Cuba, which I am not. People stumble over pronouncing my name. I was very shy as a child, and the troubles with my name only compounded my shyness. When I went to college, I started calling myself "Bonnie." It was a tremendous relief to shed the burdensome "Bonita."" Sep. 24, 2010:
