White House Names – Astri, Mariano-Florentino, Rahm, Trooper

Several days ago, a list of nearly 500 White House employees (and their salaries!) was posted at the official White House blog.

I thought these twenty employee-names were the most interesting:

  • Astri B. Kimball (75k)
  • Dagoberto Vega (75k)
  • Ferial Govashiri (45k)
  • Gannet L. Tseggai (65k)
  • Howli J. Ledbetter (36k)
  • Jamia S. Jowers (50k)
  • Karine Jean-Pierre (75k)
  • Mariano-Florentino Cuellar (98k)
  • Noerena Limon (40k)
  • Rahm I. Emanuel (172k)
  • Rosarie G. Tucci (50k)
  • Saumya N. Narechania (36k)
  • Semonti M. Mustaphi (52k)
  • Shinichi Inouye (65k)
  • Shomik Dutta (62k)
  • Taeshonnda C. King (57k)
  • Trooper Sanders (70k)
  • Venkateswar N. Neralla (74k)
  • Vianca M. Dyer (40k)
  • Wandra E. Simpson (107k)

I included their salaries just for fun. :)

  1. Good point!

    One interesting fact about Kal Penn? His given name is Kalpen. (And his surname is actually Modi.) Kind of a neat way to pick a name for acting, eh? :)

  2. I actually KNOW Howli Ledbetter. It’s definitely the most unusual name I have ever come across as well. She is also the most wonderful person & friend! And now! Her name is famous!
