    I happened to be perusing BBC news and saw this article.

    Now what UK citizen in their right mind would name their child John Thomas?

    For those fellow 'mericans who don't know, John Thomas defined

    How ironic that his wife runs a brothel...:rolleyes:

    Sorry, a bit pureile but it made me laugh.:D

    Our Minister for gaming was called Richard Face.
    Someone high up on the Medical Association was Dr. Richard Head.
    I know a guy who went to school with Wayne Kerr.
    My ex-girlfriend went to school with a girl who was named after a word her parents thought was a very nice word even though they didn't know what it meant or how to pronounce it. Phonetically she was call Ke-ross-in-ay.

    Her name was spelt, "Kerosene."

    No joke.

    A boy I know was named by his sister, who his parent's didn't know was drunk. Hence, John Thomas Seaman :p

    There was a guy in my middle school named, you guessed it, Michael Hunt. How do these parents not realize?!?

    Nuff said.

    I guess that's a funny name in the news, but you're not going to beat the name "Ronald MacDonald" who was in the news a little over a week ago because he robbed a Wendy's restaurant he also happened to work at. Yes........"Ronald MacDonald robs Wendy" was one of the headlines I saw for it. Krazy. Krazy with a "k".

    I knew a guy at school called Christopher Peacock. Of course, being a happening guy, he called himself Chris....:p

    There's a guy on the local news (London Tonight or something) with the same name... obviously he *can't* call himself Chris...

    Not sure how true this is but my sister claims a girl in her year at Uni was called Clare Terris.

    :eek:

    I had an email yesterday from someone with the first name Twinkle.

    She is in the NY office so perhaps that could be a common American name?

    I've never heard of it before. I had a friend named Piper, and everyone was convinced that her parents were high when they decided on her name.

    My Spanish teacher's friend's name was pronounced Emmer-jensey. Yeah, her name was spelled Emergency. Tragic.

    In a previous job I met;
    Mr Roger A. Beaver
    Mrs Wanking
    Mr Dikshit
    Mr Superman
    Miss Keshwari-nan
    and twin boys named something like "John Alan Smith" & "John Barry Smith"

    I also got talking to an American (of all things) who had cousins from WI called Clitus, Anus & Jebediah (sp?)

    EDIT: We had a Richard Head as a teacher and the PR guy for the local tabbaco firm is Mr Peter Tabb.

    The only thing I can think went wrong was they were MEANT to be "Cletus", "Amos" and Jebediah. Not MUCH better....sorry to any Cletuses or Amoses (or Jebediahs) out there.

    Yeah Cletus is my spelling, but still funny(to me). It wasn't Amos but may have been Enus, which I'd still s****** at, and I don't have a problem with Jebediah as that was how the subject came up thinking of names for our as then unborn daughter.

    Oh, and I had customer support at my web hosting from a "B.J. Strange" the other week. Made me laugh out loud, in spite of my crushing frustration. :)

    In scenic Ithaca, NY, John Thomas is more than a euphemism ...

    It's also a steakhouse! :eek:

    It's so good there, though. Really.

    LOL, these are great!

    There is a story going around the hospital that I've heard from enough people to give some credibility to:

    A woman gave birth to twins, and the birth certificates read

    Lemonjello (pronounced Luh-mon-ja-lo, with emphasis on the "mon")

    Orangejello (pronounced O-ron-ja-lo, with emphasis on the "ron")
