    That ain't so bad. A nurse told me about a newly minted baby who was named "FECES." Yep, you read it right.

    In my other parallel universe I'm a teacher and we come across some real howlers. Possibly the most extreme is a girl I taught called Jd (pronounced jay-dee) - she hated her name and couldn't wait to change it.

    If my parents named me Moon Unit, I'd make everyday of the rest of their lives miserable.

    The name game
    This one takes the cake without a doubt gang.

    Back in the late 70's and early 80's my wife worked for an accounting firm. Honest to pete, she came home one night and while trying to hold back the laughs, told me that one of their clients actual - birth certificate for real name was "Ronald McDonald".

    What dad in his right mind (perhaps that was the issue) with a last name of McDonald would name his son Ronald??? I wonder how mom felt about that one!! lol

    Back in the 60's I worked the counter in a bakery and someone ordered a birthday cake for Donald Duck. It was his real name. He was older than the famous Donald Duck so he couldn't blame his parents.

    When I was a kid, there was a man in the phone book by the name of Dick Wimpy...as listed in the phone book... Wimpy, Dick. Poor guy...received at least one prank call a day from me and my friends... we were brats. And nothings chagned, I'd probably still be prank calling him, but his # is now unlisted... I'm a child at heart.

    I can still smoke you guys.

    We had a woman in our town with the name Imalean Hamm. No...I'm not lying.

    But the weirdest name I ever came across was a kid in elementary school named Glenn Glenn. It's a wonder he didn't murder his parents, doncha think?

    Sounds like a bunch of immature children. I would've told them to grow the hell up.

    We have a family in town with the last name of 'Head'.... needless to say they named one son Richard, whom everyone called 'Dick'.

    You can see what the end result of that was...

    I once had a customer in my job called Fanny Valley.
    and there was one guy, Oliver Ian Lovett, who signed his checks, O I Lovett.

    My favourites though, were the customer names we made up,
    Khan Zobir
    Mboza Ritchie
    Faye Kaur-Gasm

    You mean before or after they fight and die for your freedom and safety?

    FYI it was all in fun and making fun of people's names is just another thing military types do to take their midns off the seriousness of their daily mission.

    Lighten up....

    I grew up playing golf with a Richard Head here in Tennessee. His aunt is famed Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Head Summit.

    I have to admit it still makes me chuckle.

    We had a brother and sister in our high school class - last name Outhouse.

    A friend told me this one as a supposedly true story but I can't verify:

    A girl stated her name as Fee Mall' eeee Jones and was asked to spell it.

    Female Jones

    (which is what I guess would happen if your Father can't make up his mind)

    In high school, we had a couple who dated all through school named Andy Butt and Danah Weiner...we all hoped they would get married and have the wedding invitations read something like... "We are proud to announce the wedding between Weiner and Butt..."

    haha. again...the immature things that used to amuse me...okay..who am I kidding...they still amuse me.

    they broke up two years after high-school...
