    "Haldenwang"

    customers at a small retail store where I worked:

    • last name Althouse. I could never pronounce it correctly, it came out as Outhouse.

      then there was Rev. Casebier and Mrs. Callapriest.

      would you believe Bill Bytheway?

    "Richard Griesedieck."

    Yep, you guessed it: His last name sounded a LOT like "greasy dick." And what were his parents thinking, giving him a first name that'd reduce to "dick"?

    He was one of my father's colleagues.

    There's a plastic surgeon in Indianapolis named Richard Biggerstaff. I saw that name in the phone book once and thought, how could his parents do that to him? :biggrin1: (by the way, he specializes in face lifts, not penis enlargements like his name would suggest...)
