This is a question People with Stupid Names

There are hundreds of unfortunate people out there with silly names desparately coping with the evil their parents perpetrated upon them at birth.

So far, I've met a woman called Rusty Tharp, a child health consultant called Peter Files and have the business card for "Fab Boolaky" on my desk.

We'd like you to tell us about the people you've met or work with that have silly, inappropriate or frankly wierd names.

This question is now closed.

Briefly, and to the point...
My ex-colleague Hazel Evans met and married a David Hazel and became Hazel Hazel.

And in my dealings with work I have come across the following living people. All of these are verified as genuine, and if you know any of them, you have my deepest sympathy:

1) Allen Keys
2) Fanny Fawcett
3) Patricia Fuller-Hiscock
4) Mike Hunt (yawn - but it's true)
5) X (a male)

and the best one...

Sir Ramjam Delilah Funkyboogaloo-Smythe

And also the past yields yet more...

1) Willy and Fanny Sawe
2) Josiah Arthur Wetmuff
3) Titus Aloysius Ramsbottom (or Titus A Ramsbottom)

A fairly well known one this - former (sadly) Oldham footballer Fitz Hall who answers to the wonderful sobriquet 'One Size'

People with stupid names
Remember when you were at comprehensive school and there was always a repulsive, malodourous hound who your mates would tell that you really fancied them?

At my school she was called 'Wendy House'. She had a younger brother who was called 'Maxwell'. For some insane reason her other brother was left out of this inbred's version of a joke and was simply called 'Glynn'.

From Harare to Waterford...
When I was touristing around Zimbabwe, I purchased a carving by a person named Jealousy, and MET a guy named Lovemore and also a man named Typewriter. Yes, Typewriter.

BUT the most evil parents I have ever come across were in my home town of Waterford (Ireland). While tidying up the filing cabinets in my local bank (summer job, long ago), I came across the account card of one Mr. Norris. His parents, in their INFINITE wisdom, decided to give their ONLY child the first name of Maurice...

my brother in law
studied to be a doctor. His mate had the unfortunate surname De'ath. Thankfully he decided to go along with the joke everyone would make, and just before his graduation he had the apostrophe removed by deed poll.

Hmm. You can imagine his career going well - "Doctor Death will see you now"

I was at school
with Jermaine (a boy) whose middle names were all the american presidents up to his birth for some reason. I also had friends at the time called Blue, Obi, Sky, Red, Ruskin and Bevis. I was known by my middle name (until I was able to take matters into my own hands) which is Dorje´. Us wierd named ones stuck together and drew boots on the school walls.

long time reader, first time poster, etc...
Okay here we go:

A mate of mine once worked for a company who had a Jappy chappy on their books with the rather unfortunate name of Mr Fukyamama. No joke...

I currently work at social services so in my more bored moments I used to search their client databases for names which might warrant a giggle. On one occasion I managed to find a fella whose first name was Poo. Now what could be the worst surname for a person with such a first name? Stain? Pants? No. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you.....

Mr Poo Poo.

I know where he lives and everything. Beat that.

My best friends dad
was called Peter Nutt. He used to send back any mail address to Mr P. Nutt it had to be address to Mr. P. R. Nutt.
I also worked for a large investment bank where amongst people I encountered, were a Rebecca Fuca and a Bernt Oehring (painfull).

A couple......
My friends dad is a dentist, and he works in a surgery with a Dr. Henning Schmidt, which I've always found quite funny.

At my soon-to-be-previous place of work, the cleaner is a druid called Kreb Dragonrider.

I also know of local families The Furbys, The Munts, and The Cockburns.

Oh, just remembered at my old college there was a maths teacher called Roger Atree.

Also a Dr Niggerman.

Quality German names
There's a guy in the company I work for called Gerrit Harder and a woman called Silke Busch.

I also once got a call from an Indian guy called Mr Shitole.

Oh, and I want to school with an Andrew Peacock which of course we shortened to Drew Peacock.

Dunno if this is true I was told about a woman who used to work with a mate of mine with the name Melanie Cummin. Not very funny you may add but when it came to assigning her an 8 letter username for her computer system consisting of her surname first and then fill it out with her first name

result: cumminme
