Friend of my wife's family named their kid Tim Burr. Now if we are counting foreign names, it can really get hilarious. I worked with a guy in our China office named Yu Da Foo.

My wife hears a lot of interesting names at the hospital. What these parents are thinking when they saddle these kids with such names is a mystery (though they probably aren’t thinking). Of course, no matter how bad one is, there may be one worse, like when Latrine in Robin Hood told the Sheriff that she’d changed her name.

“You changed your name?”

“Yeah, it used to be S*#%house.”

When my daughter was younger, she was a cheerleader for a pop warner football squad. One set of parents had their kid's name on the back of jerseys they were wearing. "Semaj" was the name, and they called it out frequently..."you go Semaj", etc. It didn't take me long to realize they just reversed the Dad's name. James-->Semaj Roll Eyes

I went to school with a Virginia Hamm, and a neighbor's grand daughter was named T9C, (a southern way to say something is very small, but I don't think it is spelled that way, lol.

There were two names I’ll never forget.

I worked at a sandwich shop that delivered. Had a man with a thick asian accent call in an order and said his name was Ouch Doung. I looked him up thinking it would as a prank and sure enough, name and address matched.

The second was when I worked at a car dealership. Lady came in for an appointment said her name was Paj-a-may. It was spelled Pajama.

My understanding is my parents almost named me Aristotle.


Thank God they gave a drunk Irish moniker instead. I took enough thumpings as a young-gun as it was.

My high school algebra teacher was Mr. Flowers.

He married a woman with the first name “Loverly”.

In that same town, we once had a mayor named Harry W. Baals. The city named a street for him, Harry W. Baals Lane.
