    Comes from a poem, the line is "me up at does".
    It is one of the more unique names here, is it.
    There was a thread about this, very interesting what all came from that, see the poem in post #91:

    It's an acronym. Y.B.I.A.W.

    That being said, you're pronouncing it correctly, as that is how I also pronounce it in my head.
