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.

when i worked at a call center, i talked to dean dean dean, wokkin jamcar, phoenix starfire, and wolfen thorshammer, who gladly told me his name cost him $50.

i have recently been handed credit cards from a jr cox, and a girl named christina stucki, who in fact had a severly lazy eye. that one had me peeing myself.

less funny, my name is brooke, and i used to hang out with cedar and crystal. our parents probably listened to zepplin and hugged trees together.

also, my friend's cousin's last name is harbor, and he wants to name his daughter pearl. turrible.

Where I used to work we had a client called
Mr Hiscock and he had a habit of ringin up and asking questions about his account, we'd often shout round the office "Has anyone seen Hiscock" (IO was a bit younder then!)

We also had another client with the surname of Pragasm, I found it funny though no-one else did.

Kid at school
There was a kid at my school named Seven. Thats right, Seven, and it is not a typo! It's said the same as the number, so whether it was a gaffe on the part of the birth registrar I have no idea.

Not really related to the question but...
I used to work with a guy whose porn star name (made of first pet's name and mothers maiden name) was Sheriff Crowther, which surely has to be the best such name ever.

Well i think so anyway.

I'm sure I'm going to get into trouble for this
I can't post the one I want to, so here's one more. Or rather eight.

I used to know a girl with, last time I heard (years ago), seven siblings. In this order (I think up to five is right, but beyond for sure)

1. Kaisa-Jay
2. Verity
3. Dexter
4. Dale
5. Tyler

(all fairly normalish so far. but see if you can spot the point where boredom kicked in for ma and pa)

6. Liberty
7. Blake
8. Octavia

Did you get it? Isn't that MEAN?

Better run, I will now be tracked down and killed.

teachers are mean
my mum told me this, as she used to be a science technician in my old school.

First day of the new year, new students are giving their surnames to their new form teacher. Various wags shout "Mouse, Mickey" and "Woman, Wonder". One girl says "Blackadder".

Fed up, evil science teacher (for they all are) screams at the class, especially the last girl. Who runs out of the room in tears. Whose name was Zoe Blackadder.

Poor girl. Mind you, her parents owned the pub all the teachers went to at lunch, and that teacher didn't exactly feel welcome after that, so justice was swift.

I know a girl called
Pien. She's from central europe or somewhere where this isn't a stupid name.

Once when she left the room, my friend said 'what's her name?'

'pien... yeh, you remember it once you know it'

she came back in just in time to hear him say 'is her husband called Kun?'

Evil aunt
My aunty Linda
named her first child Maureen, not too bad but naming her sister Taureen was tiny bit cruel.

Oh and I have a nephew named Shay, fun when he starts school and kids realise it rhymes with Gay.
