    Paris Hilton? Who is this? Why would anyone name their child or themself after a hotel? I think I'll change my name to Grosvenour Squre.

    I believe that it's proper grammer to use "an" before an "H" yet not everyone does so, and the OP, evidently confused over the matter, was trying to play it safe by using "a(n)".

    You are supposed to put "an" before a word starting with an H. Read more literature, people.

    yeah , you use an "an" before the letter "H", but not if it starts a word like horse, hyperbole, or hornytoad. you use an "an" as an article to precede words that start with a vowel sound. you pronounce "H" like "aache", therefore you use an "an", on the word, horse, the word starts with the "huh" sound, so you use an "a" to precede the word.

    Umm, the hotel chain is named after the Hilton family's last name. Paris inherited the name from her parents, not the hotel.

    if your dad's name was "John Smith" and he decided to start a business and call it "Smith's".....when you were born you'd get your dad's last name, but that doesn't mean you're named after the business he started.

    Either I totally didn't understand the point of this thread, or it's just completely retarded.

    You use "an" before hour.....but hour sounds like it starts with a vowel. You only use "an" with H if it sounds like a vowel, as in honor, or hour like I said. You don't use it for words that begin with the "huh" sound.

    You could say, "it is AN honor..." or "We have AN hour until..." but you wouldn't say "I rode AN horse..."

    That's just stupid.
