If you like to eat at Vietnamese restaurants (or Thai restaurants), you've probably come across the name "Phuc." It's not pronounced in English as you might expect.

It's pronounced "fook," sometimes "phoop" or "phoo." The confusion stems from translating words that don't use the English alphabet into English. In fact, some restaurants even have fun T-shirts with sayings like, "It's pronounced fook."

Still, you can understand if Facebook took exception to the name Phuc Dat Bich, as an Australian of Vietnamese descent claimed. He said Facebook blocked him from using his real name.

He took to social media to complain about it. In fact, Bich shared his passport photo to prove this name is, in fact, Phuc Dat Bich.
