Insurance adjuster I dealt with:
Tijuana Hooker

Kid on opposing football team:
Yourhighness Morgan

If I was reading resumes for a job candidate and ran across the stupid names out there now, they would go in the trash.

Regarding 20 yr. old Atom Molecule M-----, I just read in the local paper that he is headed to prison here in Az. Seems that while out of the pokey for transporting illegals pending court, he was nabbed peddling ganja to the high school kids. With the enhancement that he was selling in a school zone. Oops.
Got 4+ years in the penitentiary. They will have fun with his name there.
BTW, Otto Pilot, I think you nailed it, haha

In the 1950s I went to elementary school with a kid who’s father had named his 4 children Alpha, Beta, Chi etc. in that order. Not sure how many kids in total. “Delta” might be awlward for a boy although I suppose “Del” would work.

I really dislike stripper names for girls, or cute names for boys. Do these moronic parents really understand the kid has to live with that name for the next 70 years??? Named my son John, after his mom's dad. I had to remind people that his name was JOHN, not Jon, not Johhney, not Jack. Not sure why people have to get cute with names. I also believe strongly that a name should have some significance, such as a family name or named after a close friend. Not a celebrity or taken from the book at the check out line. Long after mommy and daddy are croaked, the kid will be saddled with a goofy name that belongs on the top of a booking card.

Knew a guy whose last name was DICK.

Of course his Naval Aviator Callsign was "Cravin" Dick.

Their first child was known to be a daughter so they legally changed their last name before she was born.

My son's name is Thomas. Not Tommy (though Tom its acceptable).

My dad's name is Bobby (as is my nephew). Not Robert.

Back when I worked at Safeway, I impressed a customer with my ability to prounounce his name. He purchased alcohol, which required I asked for his ID. His last name was Roy. When I noticed he was from Canada, I figured I'd try pronouncing it like another Canadian with the last name, Patrick Roy. His face lit up and he said I was the first to say it correctly.

A friend of mine has the first name, William. For some reason, he hates it when people call him Will. He insists people call him Bill. I rarely ever get it right, but he gave up trying to correct me because so many people also make the same mistake.

We had a Doc on my last ship whose last name was Dick. I had to get a prostate exam and it was not pleasant. Dr. Dick stood about 6'3" and had these big fat sausage fingers.

Must be real awkward for Chi to be totally out of order. Or else they have 22 kids and that one is the last. Wink

If nothing else, it could be mildly clever, since the Greeks used the letters of the alphabet interchangeably with "first" (alpha), "second" (beta), etc.

Knew a guy in NJ whose last name was Joseph, Joseph Joseph! He went by Joe Joseph.

Working the Reservation folks here in MT brings up some good ones too; Bertha Big Beaver, Joe Kills On Top, Henry Skunkcap, Alger Steals The Horse, all real names.

But NONE can hold a candle to the ghetto/Stripper names. Always astounds me some poor kid saddled with a ridiculous name for the rest of his life. Shows the irresponsibility of the Parent.

I’m guessing at the proper pronunciation, but I’m think maybe it sounds like “rye” than “Roy?”

I had that same experience with a customer named Stamatios Hadoulias (stuh-mah-tee-ose huh-doo-lias). I guessed and nailed it on the first try. His eyes bugged. There’s a sizable Greek immigrant population in Florida and nobody ever got either of his names right so he went by Tom. Good guy.

It's "rwahh". Patrick Roy, Hall of Fame NHL goaltender, played for the Montreal Canadiens and the Colorado Avalanche.

Back in my working days we had a warehouse manager named Rusty Locke. Another case of parents who thought it was cute.
