At his regular press conference on Wednesday, House Speaker John Boehner set a reporter straight on his name. His name is not "Camp," as the reporter suggested, and nor is it "BAY-ner," as has been the understanding. Instead, it's something more … adult.

Reporter Luca Gattoni-Celli, prompted for a question by Boehner, inadvertently called the Speaker "Mr. Camp," a reference to Rep. Dave Camp — who is the talk of Washington for his new, doomed tax proposal. Boehner clarified, presumably joking about how his name is actually pronounced.

Which, when Boehner first came to power, was an issue of some speculation. In 2006, Slate did an "explainer" on it. Even the weird, sometimes joking Pronunciation Book YouTube account explained how to say the name.

But the revelation today was actually a triumph for an unexpected former politician: Anthony Weiner.

At the Congressional Correspondents' Dinner in 2011, Weiner made a joke comparing his last name to Boehner's. (This was before Weiner's last name gained its current level of irony.)

Who is Boehner fooling? I mean, what am I, Anthony WAY-ner? I'm serious, brother. Just embrace it.

Finally, Boehner has.
