The best/worst names you have ever heard
« 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.

Pronounced "Ladasha"

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

I'm like, an adult now or something? Sounds fake, but okay.

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

There was actually a guy at one of the high school ceremonies I went to named Gabriel Knight. No joke. :P
