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.

the king
I was a court officer (Silence! All Stand! - like the black guy in Judge Judy). One day there was a case involving an illegal Indonesian immigrant called King Phuc.

The best thing was that he didn't show up, so according to the rules I had to go into the foyer and scream his name 3 times at the top of my lungs...
