People With Funny Names

Mon Jun 05, 2006 10:54 pm

Alas, it would appear that an employee for one of our clients is called "Mike Hunt".

The poor guy! Did his parents not like him or something?? LOL

Went to high school with a Jennifer Tull. I never met her (~5000 students), but word is she'd kick you 'tween the legs if you called her "Jenny."

Another unfortunate fellow was in band with me. Michael Crouch actually went by "Mike," though he'd over-pronounce his last name (KrOWch) to avoid giggles.

I know a guy called Mike Hunt, from a cricket club here in Devon. One of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.

My dad works with a guy called Jack Perrin, he (and his wife!) had a baby daughter, and fate had it that she be called "Leanne"....... Worcestershire sauce fans will know what i'm talking about!

Famously, Bill Lear named his daughter Chanda.

Last I heard she insisted that it was Chandra but her parents both insisted that it was Chanda. Bill said he wanted to name a couple more kids 'Lava' and 'Cava' but that did not happen.

I have a friend named Richard (who goes by Dick) whose full name when you use his middle name plus his confirmation name is Richard Peter William Daun...yup Dick Peter Willie.

Another friend named Richard has the last name Wadewicz, and actually doesn't mind being called Dickwad.

Sounds like quite a popular girl.

It sounds like BS, but my father's proctologist was Dr. Butts. Doc Butts was related to the Texas supermarket family (H*E*B). I was disappointed his urologist's name wasn't Peters.

I was just watching the news, and the spokesperson for the Orange County (FL) Sheriff's office was named Crystal Candy.

There is a doctor in Daytona Beach named Whaba W. Whaba. I've always wondered what the W stands for.

One of three pathologists in the Santa Clara County (CA) Coroner's Office is Dr. Christopher Happy.

Yes. Your death certificate will be signed by Dr. Happy, if you die in San Jose or environs. Lucky us...we all get to die a Happy death.

There was an article in the Sun last year or the year before about a couple, Mr and Mrs Peacock, who had their first son and called him Drew. They then googled his name a few weeks after they christened him to see if there was anyone famous with the same name, or to see if he'd made it to the local papers, and to their horror, google brought up porn sites...... the headline being "Droopy cock"..........

There was a joke going around after the 2002 World Cup, when Brazil beat England 2-1 and Ronaldinho scored that outrageous free kick......

"Why do Brazilian's have such big knobs? Cos they can all lob Seaman from 35 yards!!"


Speaking of commentary, cricket comes into it..... Michael Holding of the West Indies and Peter Willey of England. The commentary was as follows.....

"The bowler's Holding, the batsman's Willey"
