    Hilarious names

    I have encountered some hilarious/unfortunate names:

    Justin Case
    Tiny Johnson
    France Forget

    and today, in one of my classes a student named:

    Golden Wong.


    What are some hilarious/unfortunate names you've heard of? (real ones please.)

    John Doe, and his brother, Dill.

    favorite novels:

    "I Fell Off a Cliff", by Eileen Dover

    "Jump Off a Cliff", by Hugo Furst
    When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years.” Mark Twain (apocryphal)

    I am friends with a girl who is related to someone named Nga T. Ho. (the 'g' is silent - I think it is Vietnamese or something)

    And I know a girl named MayMay Wang who married someone recently with a last name of Kay so it became MayMay Kay.

    An old work friend of my mother is named Gaye Fitzpatrick. Nothing funny there, but it became a problem when her ex-husband remarried another woman called Gaye. Since having two Mrs Gaye Fitzpatricks was causing some problems and confusion, my mother suggested that Gaye should go back to her maiden name.

    It wasn't a problem when she was a kid back in the 50s, but the surname Barr was going to be a big problem now!

    Don't tell me he's the car insurance salesman who's on the ads on tv.

    Not many to tell here. Many years ago, when my daughter started 2nd grade, her teacher was new to the profession. She was one of those exceptional teachers whom all the students and parents were glad to have. She had gotten her education at Beaver College in Pennsylvania. Her name - Miss Beaver.

    A few years later, having moved to a neighboring school district, I found that one of my son's friends had her for a teacher - but now she had gotten married. Her new name - Mrs. Meaner, although everyone still loved her.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    I know a house painter named Les Coates.

    If I've had a few pops I introduce myself as Manny Feltersnatch.
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    Working as a cashier for many years as a teenager back when stores took checks, I got to see so many odd names printed on customers' checks that I can't remember them all.

    A few, though:
    --one guy's actual last name was Dickhead.
    --another guy's actual last name was ****thead.
    --and a bunch of people had swear words as their last name, no kidding.
    --then you had those people whose first and last names were the same, like "Dick Dick" or "Ron Ron" or "Robert Roberts," etc.

    Being 16-19 years old, we were all pretty immature about it, unfortunately.
