    gushiggins: When I was in Kuwait, where you have to call someone by rank and last name, one of the officers I worked with was Major Stiffwood. Poor guy. They need to promote him, and fast.

    Other actual people I've met in the Army: Sergeant Slaughter, Specialist Specyal, and Sergeant Pepper. Have yet to meet a Colonel Ingus, though.

    prepstudinsc: Sometimes you have to wonder about what goes through parents' minds when they name their babies.
    It can mean a life of teasing and snickers behind the backs of the name holder. Although I'm sure it does help other people remember what that person's name is.

    Knew a girl named "Frosty" Box.

    I never took her temperature, though.

    Then there was Susie Pickle. A real sourpuss.

    oldman9x7: I knew of two people who eventually had to have their telephones changed to "unlisted" because of the way their names appeared in the phonebook.
    They were:
    Dick Long
    and
    Peter Tenpound
    Poor guys.

    Javierdude22: Funny story,

    If I dig really deep into my high school history lessons I remember reading that, in the case of Holland at least, it was by decree of Napoleon (who conquered Holland around the beginnin of 1800) that everyone should have a last name, as most of the peasantry didn't. Napoleon wanted to register everything so he could have better oversight and control so everyone was obligated to give themselves a last name. As a consequence we have1 million people who are called Baker (cause it was their profession), an equal amount of people called Van Dyk (cause of the enormous amount of dykes we have) and other names directly derived from people's surroundings like van Duin (Dunes), van der Molen (from a mill), van Dam, or van der Plas (from a lake). Other people thought they were pretty funny by naming themselves: Love-ache, Dismay, Pee-a-lot, or flying heart. This all as a silent revolt to the invaders.

    And now we have a similar amount of people in therapy for traumatic childhoods... ;)... ;D

    Dantesco: People I've actually met:
    Formica Dinette Sett
    Jenny Mae Pee
    Richard Head ("No you cant call me Dick.")
    Goneril Tester
    Doctor Doctor (hes a doctor!)
    Ruby Tuesday
    Eileen Dover

    By far the worst was, believe it or not, Neil Enblomey. He had it legally changed for obvious reasons.

    I had a good friend whose last name was Snoddy (pronounced snow-dee.)  He and his family had forever been correcting people who insisted on saying "Snotty".

    Then, after he started work on his family history, he discovered that a man named Snowden had come to America in the early 1800's and changed his name to Snoddy when he got here.  Seems he was a fugitive from Scotland who succeeded in starting a whole new family line in America.

    My friend got together with his father and his brothers and they all went to court to have their family name changed back to Snowden.

    Another friend hasn't bothered to change his name, though,

    Fuzzy Lipschitz.
