Title: The best/worst names you have ever heard
Post by: Kimmie on June 27, 2010, 07:42:59 AM
Ok this is based around if you work in the public sector and hear surnames often but can also be if you know anybody with a cool name!

For example I think the actor Rip Torn had parents who thought they were hilarious  ;)

So far we have had a competition in work to see if we can find the best Surnames, some are a little bit on the rude side so I wont post them but my favourite so far has been;

Mr A. Cake  :suffer:

I like my last name--Dundas. :yes: It's not like my parents named me "Ialready," but it's still fun.  That's what everyone at work calls me.

I know someone with the last name Alfred who has been dubbed Alfredo. Not sure why.

Would be easier to say so the other way around I think

How did you know?  :o

No, just kidding.  ;D His first name is Henry. But Pasta would be... well, it would just be weird.

A friend of mine while doing a temp job of stuffing envelopes to people who owed money for a camp their kids had gone to still noticed that one family had sent two children there.

Dangit, I can't remember the second name at the moment, but one of them was named Messiah. No joke. And the other one was just as strange.

Every interpretation I lend to Haids post here makes me laugh, ie- both the tone of "helpful addition" and the tone of child-like bafflement at encountering someone named "Messiah".

Okay, in the best names category, a girl in my last Calc1 recitation was named Griffin Hunt. On occasion, I stopped myself from asking if she had a brother named Dragon or Drake. :P

I never met anyone with the name Griffin, intresting name. Doesn't seem to me as a girl name.

Gabriel Knight series? Good Sierra series. First one is Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, second one The Beast Within (made with this weird "full motion video"), third is Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned.

Jeez, and I call myself a Sierra fan?! ;]  Thanks for clearing that up for me, Tess. :)

German is fun for weird names. :D You can put four or five stems on the same word. :D

Let me see...I once had a French teacher called "Haumesser" (Literally "Chopping knife" or "hitting knife"). :P

And another teacher whose full name translates into "Urban Pity". :P

Aksed and found out the other one.

Future! They named their children Future and Messiah.

That is just cruel!  :suffer:

I heard a mother shouting at her child a few years ago, she'd called him Denzel (but in a thick Liverpudlian accent so it sounded rediculous) it really REALLY didnt suit the child

Had a Mrs Lemon come in the other day she was a bit tart for my liking :p

For some reason I read that as "Damzel" and I was like "That is an AWFUL AWFUL name for a boy!"

When I reread it, it didn't seem so bad by comparison. :P
Title: Re: The best/worst names you have ever heard
Post by: Haids1987 on July 09, 2010, 11:59:39 AM
Damzel?  Oh man!  That would be a horrible name for a girl!  She'd have to seriously live above and beyond that name, be a crazy tough chick or something. :yes:

I once heard someone name their boy "Spatula". There's also Kevin Smith who named his daughter "Harley Quinn".

was it a nickname? I hope to God 'Spatula' was a nickname!

No, it's really the boy's name. Apparently, he's named after a fantasy character from a book. A very obscure book I guess.
Title: Re: The best/worst names you have ever heard
Post by: Kimmie on July 11, 2010, 09:28:03 AM
and it's unfortunate if his friends shorten his name to 'spat'

Oh the bullying that child must have to put up with, sometimes Parents can be so cruel! And thats why as kids we have the power to choose their nursing home!  :suffer: (Only joking, but its a threat to your parents is hey embarass you!)

Spatula?  That's worse than naming your kid "Blanket."  At least that's a nickname!
