VIDEO: Can you spell Annastacia Palaszczuk?

"WHAT'S in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."

Shakespeare's famous line from Romeo and Juliet would strike a chord with those whose names are difficult to pronounce and spell.

Just ask Member for Kawana Jarrod Bleijie, State Opposition Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk, PUP candidate John Bjelke-Petersen and Greens candidate Joe Shlegeris.

It can be hard to become a household name with a title your constituents struggle to wrap their tongue around.

In fact, Joe Hockey's father changed his name from Hokeidonian.

In the lead-up to the election, the Daily hit the streets for a spelling bee.

The results will make you giggle. Only one person spelt the name of Annastacia Palaszczuk correctly.
