Most people who aren’t into US Volleyball first of heard of Destinee Hooker when she was naked in the ESPN Body Issue.  Since then Twitter has had a little fun at the expense of her name.

Nothing crazy, but it appears Hooker has seen the jokes as well.

U.S. Olympic volleyball badass Destinee Hooker knows people are amused by her name … she knows some people laugh … but she doesn’t care … she believes it’s a “blessing.”

There was almost no Destinee Hooker at all … the 24-year-old tells us she nearly died at birth, and when she survived, her father was inspired to give her the name “Destinee.”

“Since I was a blessing, [my father] spelled it uniquely. So I am thankful to be here and glad my Dad gave me the name.”

She might be a little naive to the fact no one is really making fun of the “Destinee” part it is the full name that gives people a chuckle.  It sounds like a girl at the King of Diamonds.  No need to get defensive, it isn’t like you can choose your own name.

On the bright side she should be happy her name isn’t Dick Trickle.
