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.

I rhyme and alliterate - and highly recomend them both
I was named Barbie Brownie at birth.
'Brownie' is Scottish, and 'Barbie' is Mattelish.
At the age of 8 I began forcing everyone to call me Barbara instead of Barbie - fed up will relentless teasing.
I am forever plagued with 'how do you spell that?" type questions, and usually reply "like the cake" or "as in girl guides". Automated telephone answering services cause an awful lot of hassle. I have had to pay my electricity bill under the name 'Rowntree' because it's the closest the machine would let me get to my real name. I have also had mail addressed to 'Broonie', 'Beany', Beanie', 'Browlee', 'Browney' etc etc etc.
I find it all highly amusing.
