I once wrote a song about an ex girl friend from Hell.
In the song I used the REAL name of a REAL girl my mother went to school with....
ISA SAVAGE

Whenever I sang it, people would come up to me and ask if it was a real name and give me other names that sound equally dubious.
e.g.
Lydia Kettle
Annette Curtain
I'm sure there must be lots of daft names out there.
Over to you....

My German professor at U of SoDak was a stereotypical example of stern, Teutonic, German-American discipline and order, one Professor Lipp--reminded my a lot of my Dakota German grandfather and granduncles, except they were nicer.

Of course, in German class, at least when addressing him auf Deutsch, we were required--and felt obviously compelled not to laugh one little bit--to address him as:

Herr Lipp.

Two of my friends and I collect newspaper articles about people with unusual names. In one day in a local paper I found Dameka Tweedy, Landress Funderbunk and Santana Hanna. Santana had a sister named Toshiba. Recently here in NJ a kid named Rainbow Michael Hefner made the news. He killed his mother. I don't condone the crime, but I'm not surprised. I would, at least, be very angry with my mom. I'm not sure why Rainbow's mother just didn't name him "I"ve got a girls name, beat the crap out of me". Another news story out of Asbury Park NJ told of a mother accused of mistreating her children, and not just for their names: Allamathmatics, Youmathmatics, Indiansquanda and Prince. I'm not making this up. I'm not that clever. I'm also partial to Sir Vivien Fox-Strangeways. It's possible that in England, people are saying "What's wrong with that?" Well, it's hilarious to us Americans. And what was Dickens thinking when he gave us Charley Bates in Oliver Twist and kept referring to him as Master Bates? I'd like to think it was a harmless coincidence. Unlike Fleming's Pussy Galore.

My dad had a friend, Mr. Katt, who named his son, Tom.

I went to school with a girl named with the last name of Funderburke, but everyone called her F**kabird behind her back. Cruel children; she was popular, so I don't know if she ever heard it or not.

Also, another one whose first name was Zennia, like the flowers, but she suffered for it miserably.

Speaking of Ellis Island, when my ex-mother-in-law's family came over from Germany, they were Schleusers; it got changed to Schlauger. Didn't make much sense to me.

After seeing a rendition of the Rindercella fairytale, we had a lot of fun switching family names around. My mom became Harry Mudson and I became Lat KaFrance. LOL.

This is one of them irresistable Urban Myths. Pugwash's crew were

Pirate Barnabas
Pirate Willy

Possibly funny enough in themselves.

There is some gen on this site and a Pugwash story here. You can get videos etc. here.

Right, the parents give their babies funny names not thinking of consequences! But what do you say about (sur)names affecting people's careers:

The Finnish TV1 (and radio as well) has had a programme called Luontoilta lit. 'nature night' running for quite a few years now, where a bunch of biologists answer and comment questions sent or phoned by the public.

The 'council' consist of (usu. 6) eg:

Veikko 'fellow, brother' Neuvonen 'advice', the chairman Ilkka Koivisto 'birch grove', on everything ? Tiainen 'titmouse' (Paridae), on birds. (He was preceded by ? Lokki 'seagull'; I don't remember their first names right now.) Seppo Vuokko 'anemone, windflower', on flora Harri 'grayling' Dahlström 'dale stream', on fishes and some other watery matters

In Hattie Atwood Freeman's story of her journey around the world in her father's merchant bark the editor includes a wealth of information in various appendices. Among these is the story of Edgar Freeman's family. (Hattie married him.) His previous mother in law had the name of Wealthy Horr.

Now that's a mother in law name I wouldn't mind using in an argument.

Then there is the NASCAR driver, Dick Trickle. I would have to change my name, but then again, people remember it, don't they? I don't keep up with NASCAR and I know exactly who he is!

My maiden name was Feathers, originally Vatter in German. Talk about suffering as a child! At least my parents had the good sense not to name me Robin. My dad said he wanted to but I think he was just pulling my chain.

There is a foot doctor here in Nashville named Steven Head. And I went to school with a Jeff Butt. And once I dated a David Breast. I think they probably took a lot more mickey than I did...

I am friends with a young Filipina named Girlie; she has a brother named Peteyboy. (They are the third generation after World War II. It's easy to trace where those names came from.)

I may as well share the lyrics of the above named Isa Savage and let you in on how I lost my virginity.


ISA SAVAGE

When I was a young lad and just in my teens
I was looking for a girl that would fulfill my dreams
I quite liked the blonde ones, the redheads as well
But the girl that I got was the "Girl Friend From Hell"

Her name was Isa, Isa Savage
A girl of extraordinary size
She had hair on her chin and a big toothless grin
And varicosed veins on her thighs

Well at fourteen years old and only four foot eleven
I was searching for an angel to transport me to heaven
Isa was huge and she weighed nineteen stone
Wi' her muscles she looked like Silvester Stilone
But on February fourteenth wi' romance in the air
The school held a dance - I made sure I was there
I splashed on my Brute and Brylcreamed my hair
I just didnae plan on Big Isa being there
I looked round the hall at all the pretty young girls
Spellbound by the legs of the ones doing twirls
But then to my horror and utter alarm
Big Isa picked me up and tucked me under her arm
Across the dance floor she gleefully ran
And using my head like a battering ram
She burst through the doors and ran down tae the gate
It was Valentine's Night and she'd picked up her date

Her name was Isa........

With her gums she uncorked a cheap bottle of wine
Slugged it all down and vowed she'd be mine
She demanded I kiss her as she ripped off my clothes
Pausing only to wipe something strange from her nose
That February night - I remember it well
My virtue was stolen by the girl friend from hell
I was too wee to argue - I just did what she said
'Cause if I didnae she'd gi' me a scud 'round the head
By March it was all over - there was no more romance
And I vowed I'd never go tae another school dance
I'd rather stay hame and watch the TV
Incase Isa's big sister took a fancy tae me

Her name was Isa.........

What can I say other than it is a true story.

I pulled a guy over for a minor traffic violation. His name was Al Bundy, just like the main character, and ultimate loser, on Married With Children. He got off with a polite warning. I mean, how do you give a guy with that name a summons? A co-worker found himself in the same position with an Indian gentleman whose first name was Dikshit. Really. No summons that time, either.

There is a practicing gynegologist here in northern Virginia by the name of Dr. Harry Beaver (I'm not lyin').
The pastor at a church I used to attend was Reverend Ivan Oder.
I once had a neighbor named Richard (Dick) Skinner. For those who don't make the connection, "dick skinners" is slang for hands, as in, "Keep yer dick skinners off my pint."
I know a guy with the surname, Liddeldich (pronounced with a "k"). He has a hard time getting dates.
