"Elvis is my middle name, named after my mums cousin who died suddenly at a young age of a brain haemorrhage. Here we pronounce it El VIGH ra and I don't like it all all. I get teased, people burst out laughing and hate that stupid song "My heart''s on fire, for Elvira" On the rare occasion somebody says they like it, they LOVE it and usually it's because they think it's so weird that it's cool. I also don't like the association of Big Breastfed Witch Like 'Elvira' the strange fetishist icon of many a man. I'm nothing like her and small breastfed - another reason for people to laugh at me having this name." Jul. 4, 2017:
