Frequently Asked Questions

  • So, what's your name?

    Bangbay Siboliban.

  • Is that your real name?

    Yes, you can't make that stuff up. Unless of course, it's an anagram of something else, like Vivian Darkbloom (Vladimir Nabokov).

  • So, how do you pronounce Bangbay?

  • What about Siboliban?

  • Together?

  • What if I don't have a sound card or am deaf?

    Okay, bahng-buy (like buy me a vowel) see-bo-lee-bahn. No “a” sounds like “apple!” “Ah” sounds like “Open up and say “ah!”

  • That's too hard to pronounce. Can I come up with a nickname for you?

    NO! (Thinks about it… 🤔) Okay, maybe you can call me Bb.

  • What kind of name is Bangbay Siboliban?

    It's Lao. By the way, back to anagrams, here's one for my name: Ban Big Baby in Laos. Who is “Big Baby?” I don't know, but it reminds me of that Stone Temple Pilots song “Big Bang Baby.”

  • So, are you a man or a woman?

    I graduated from Barnard College.

  • What does that mean?

    I guess it doesn't mean anything, but Barnard is the most selective women's college in the USA. Visit its website.
