Sandy Hyatt-James (sandyhyatt-james) I once had a boss named Mike Hunt. Every time he got on the phone and introduced himself, I used to fight not to laugh out loud.
When I was at school, I actually knew a girl called Anette Curtin.
A small town where I lived had a 5ft 0 woman working at the supermarket called Mrs Little.
Has anybody else come across people with amusing names.

Meels (amelia) I love a story my mom tells of going to Grandma & Grandpa Wolfgang's when she and dad were first married and going to church (SUPER conservative CofC; girls wear dresses, never pants) and during the announcements the guy says, with a completely straight face, "Sister Horny has come through her surgery with great success and will be recuperating at the home of the Tinkles." Mom got nasty looks from Granny Wolfgang, because she couldn't help laughing. She was trying to hold it in, but that only made matters worse as she was shaking the entire pew with her silent guffaws. I love that story. She still laughs every time she tells it.

Sandy Hyatt-James (sandyhyatt-james) That's so funny, Amelia. I couldn't stop laughing.

Brittomart I just said "Mike Hunt" several times aloud to see if there was anyway that it wouldn't sound like "my cunt," and yeah, no, there is none.

Harry  (Harry_Harry) | 226 comments Do the people who are given these unfortunate names figure that they may as well run with it? This is UNBELIEVABLE!!

Heh, going to that doctor would be scary if I was a man. And yes those of us with unfortunate names learn to either embrace it or find a way to change it. You also have to be very careful what you name your children. My married last name is Beaver...I refused to offically change it for 8 yrs. My mother wanted us to name our son Phillip.

Dan Schwent (akagunslinger) My ex-girlfriend went to school with a girl named Mary Christmas. In a town 20 miles south of me, there are both Harry Wehner and Dick Bonen. Oh, and there used to be a contractor at work named Steve Stallion. We all used to call him Steve Stallion: Pornstar.


message 19: by Jan (new)

Jan | 241 comments The name of a local doctor is Dr. Puppi. Pronounced poopy.

My niece had a teacher, Mr. Mello, who named his daughter Marsha.

A newscaster around here is known as Patrice Wood. She uses her middle name; her real first name is Holly.


message 20: by Janice (new)

Janice (jamasc) We had a bank manager here named Robin Hood.


message 21: by Leslie (new)

Leslie (lesslie) A clinic I used to work at saw twin girls who were named what I'm sure their parents thought would be nice names for future strippers: Precious and Wonderful. Seriously, do you see them growing up to be attorneys or architects, or strippers?

I actually don't see much of a problem there. It's not like they named them Turd and Fart. They're unusual, memorable names - seeing them on a resume might make that resume get pulled out for another look.

Leslie (lesslie) MY SON JUST LAUGHED MILK FROM HIS NOSE LAUGHING!
