My Name is Hedwig

Something rather funny happened today while I was in the office. I happened to pick up this telephone call.

Me: Hello.

Caller: Hi, can I speak to W?

Me: I'm sorry but W is on the phone right now, would you like to leave a message for her?

Caller: Uh ok. Can you let W know I called.

Me: Sure. How do I address you?

Caller: Hedwig.

Me: Uhm. How should I spell your name?

Caller: H-E-D-W-I-G

Me: I immediately connected to this:

Harry and his pet owl, Hedwig

Me: *Trying hard not to giggle* Alright, I'll let W know you called.

After hanging up, I laughed inside my head.

Speaking of which, I'm looking forward to the final instalment of Harry Potter. : )

Don't forget Hedwig and the Angry Inch. I wonder where the name originates?
