Abhisit Vejjajiva - abhi-jiit vijaya-jiiva

Thailand's youngest prime minister in 60 years.

Another example where the uninitiated people keep corrupting the spelling and pronunciation and start loosing the meaning behind their names.

abhi-jiit - means the "one who can not be conquered".

vijaya-jiiva means the "one living being who has won or conquered".
