Invented Surname: Wojin

Successful entrepreneurs Sergey Brin (Google) and Anne Wojcicki (23andMe) were married from 2007 to 2015. During that time they had two children, a son and a daughter.

They named the kids Benji and Chloe, but that’s not all — they also gave the kids a brand new surname: Wojin, a combination of Wojcicki (which is pronounced wo-JIT-skee) and Brin. According to a Gawker tipster, the surname had been created “for security reasons.”

Do you know of any families with invented/blended surnames?

  1. If the surname was given for security reasons, it should have been at least 8 characters long and included at least one number and one special character.
