    Just reading a thread started by “Dammit” and thinking how amusing it would be if that were his/her real name. It reminded me of a fellow I used to work with. His surname was “Love”, and I often wondered what the guys at work used to call him given that fellas often call each other by their last names.
    I wished I could be around when someone called out to him…. “hey Love, come here” etc. and then watch their faces when they realised how it must sound.
    Anyone with other ‘funny name’ stories?

    I was in the Army with a young guy named de’Ath. Of course his name tag was block letters and no punctuation so he became the fearless Captain DEATH.

    This is not a ‘Gatsby joke’. A personal friend and work colleague’s gynaecologist’s surname is actually ‘Fiddler’. I think he has a practise in Wantirna (Melb) if anyone thinks I’m just making it up. If I was going to make it up, I’d use a name like ‘Dr.Pap Smear.’

    I used to know a guy named Peter Enis. Looks harmeless enough till you Initial his name
    P.Enis. You think his parents could have avoided that one.

    I used to get lot as of attention at parties when i was younger, i’ll i had to do was tell everyone what the names were of my brothers and sister
    Alvin, Kingsley and Trixie. People had a good laugh.

    regards westan (my real name)

    I still think the prize for the worst name goes to Frank Zappa for naming his child Moon Unit. That was just plain mean!

    I know an old guy called Neil low and oddly enough he has a great deal of trouble with his knees……..

    You have to wonder what his folks were thinking of then

    HI All,

    My mother bought a property in Spain and on all the paperwork she signed her name C A Jones…

    Which is her initials and surname…

    But in Spanish cajones is the word for testicles or balls…

    Cheers, Nobleone. [biggrin]

    When my son was in primary school, he had a classmate [cap] called Ty d’Ferrier.

    During rollcall, someone called out: “Gimme a rope”.

    Awww, poor kid!

    Mine is similar to yours: –
    Went to school with a boy named Wayne….Kerr. Never sounded the same at assembly!

    My wife and I spent a lot of time looking at the combination of names and their abreviations – we didn’t want our children to go thru what I went Thru. My real name is Elmar…..don’t have to be a brain surgeon to see what I went thru. Glad I’m 6’2 and have big paws,.. erm, hands……
    Once the initial joke was out and other kids seemd to get headaches from calling me names it soon stopped (to my face anyway!).

    Isn’t it good that we grow up!

    Cheers

    3 stories.

    Before I was married my initials were KAB – and I was a taxi driver.

    Glancing through a school year book one time, I came across a girl named Theresa Green.

    I was in a Woolies shop when I heard an announcement for Michael Hunt to come to the enquiries counter. For those innocents who can’t figure it out (I had to have it explained to me when my partner nearly fell over laughing) combine the common abbreviation of Michael with the surname and say it fast.

    HI,
    I knew a girl by the name of Maxine Organ and a guy by the name Laten Cumming.
    Honest, Martin[biggrin]

    There are 3 types of people:1. People who make things happen.
    2. People who watch what happens.
    3. People who wondered what happened.

    One of the guys on the rigs was named Hugh Jars. He was as skinny as a skunned rabbit…so we didn’t get much mileage out of that one.

    Can only think of two names, but neither seem that funny after reading the above names, a guy called Paul Noh.

    Also had a guy who actually changed his name to Lone Sky McCloud. Can’t remember his first name, but it was like Chris “Something”. I think he wanted to be american indian.

    My Wifes Maiden name was “Dear”, and she received no end of jokes, usually relating to deer, so was glad to change. Her father was a cruise ship officer, and he worked with two other officers on one ship, named “Love” and “Darling”. Naturally their PA announcements caused considerable mirth amongst the crew and passengers.
    “Darling, Love here, would you come up to the bridge please”
    “Yes Love, right away.”
    “Coffee Darling?”
    “Yes, thanks Dear”
    True story.
    I’d love to be able to say there was a funny ending, like “my surname is Mucus”, but it is more prosaic than that!
    He He.
    PS this is a great forum. Redwing has posted some awesome ones! I laughed and laughed. Clearly he doesn’t work for a living to have time to do this……?
