View Full Version : Amusing Names.

Do you know anyone who has an amusing name? Please list some so that we can laugh at them.

In the obituaries of today's newspaper, I saw a lady called "Agnes Fucus Bruckner", which is certainly unique. I also know someone called "Isa Chicken", and someone else was in the paper a few months ago who was called "Rusty Nails" ("Rusty" being his nickname, obviously).

Your turn, please.

I had in my class a girl whose surname was Hyöky, and I wondered whether she'd marry a guy named Aalto to get the amalgamate "Hyöky-Aalto", "Tidal-Wave".

Thorn Webb. Just weird altogether.

There's also someone that goes to my school named something that I probably shouldn't say. If it's inappropriate, have a mod edit it. Amanda Bone.

There's a freshman in my high school named Jigger. He's always getting picked on, the poor lad, but I can't help but to always laugh in my head when I hear his name.

I heard someone legally changed their name to "I am who I am"

A friend of mine had a teacher in high school whose name was Jack Self. Some of my teachers were Mr. Man and Mr. Love. They were just out of college so they were like 22-year-olds among the teenagers. It must've been rough for them.

Excerpt from Late Nite with Conan O'brien: The man who legally changed his name to Chatter Mann has changed it back to his birth name. Not suprisigly it was Loser Man.

07-16-2004, 03:26 AM
Oh, yeah. My sister's Choir Instructor's name is William Love, however, he had it legally changed from Dick Love. Not Richard. Dick.

My old pricipal from high school way back when had the last name "Bates" and he was technically the master of the school and, well, you can figure the rest out. Certainly explains when he was always in such a good mood :D

I have known a couple of people who had "Scooter" as their nickname. I always found that odd/funny.

07-16-2004, 05:46 AM
I'm not so sure if this is appropriate...but my friend can't get over the fact that he met someone named Bangcok. I don't think it's that funny, but hey. His mind works a little differently than mine.

My friend's math teacher's brother was Harry Dickie. Poor soul. :shame:

They used to call my old math teacher Corn-cob Massa (he walked very strangely), or Mufasa.

Dick Face. :smash:

I know a girl named Tippe... Which we use instead of for example "rock" when we say "...Rock the cradle" or something like that.

07-16-2004, 11:36 AM
Here at Portugal many people has some funny names like for an example mr. Andrew Frito (fried), and a very know woman Bibá Pitta (Viva h*n). I love to joke with her name! and my last name is Diaz (days), it's funny!

07-16-2004, 11:48 AM
... Also, I know a girl named Marina... Which we in Denmark sometimes use instead of the word dock(s). I don't know if it's the same thing in the US?

My personal favorite name in the history of forever is Harry Balzonia (the last syllable is pronounced "ya"). lol

07-16-2004, 05:43 PM
Someone I knew had their third name as "Pfarce". And some people think it's funny how my three given names are Karl Mark Ian. For anyone interested, yes, I am going to change the k in Mark to an X sometime.

07-16-2004, 07:00 PM
I read somewhere that there was this guy whose last name was Pig (or Pigg. something like that). He hadtwo daughters and named them Ima and Yura. Sick, but hilarious.

07-16-2004, 07:15 PM
There's a female's first name around here "Mouza" and a last name "Saeed". If you translate it and flip it, it becomes: Happy Banana. There were jokes about putting those two names together going around for ages. Not as amusing as the other ones posted but I found it kinda funny.

07-17-2004, 01:54 AM
I used to work with someone by the name of Sue Persiky. When anyone hears that for the first time, they here it as Super Sicky.

07-17-2004, 11:17 PM
I've met a few people on the net with funny names. Harry Mc. Larry was an especially good one. There are also a couple who live in some strange village round here called Lord and Lady Lemon :D

07-17-2004, 11:31 PM
Oh god one of my teachers name was Iona Pusey...ehh... :shame:

07-18-2004, 05:42 AM
Completely unrelated, and I'm so completely sorry for being off topic, but Leeza, I miss the Marilyn Cat sig... :P

And on a more related note, a buddy of mine, no joke knows a guy named Matt Kock, only the owner of this name "claims" it's pronounced coke... Seems he got run out of a town in upper Quebexico for this... Val d'Or... :P

There was an Aussie rules player who changed his full name to Whiskas as a publicity stunt, after he got a sponsorship deal with the cat food company.
And that guy who changed his name to Count Cinnamon Sex Fruit.

I knew a Richard Holder and a Tony Chin (Toe Knee Chin). :p
