Oprah, or so the story goes, was supposed to be named Opar, but the spelling wasn’t correct due to the name’s pronunciation when originally recorded.
Got to watch those southern drawls.
Actually the name was supposed to be the Biblical character Orpah.
Actually, she was supposed to be named Orpah, a biblical name, but it was misspelled on her birth certificate.
Worked out for her, the name of her company is Harpo which is Oprah backward. Otherwise, it would have been Hapro.
But it made for a really cool reversed name!
