Strange and funny names

Recommended Posts

In honour of Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii who hit the news today ( BBC NEWS | World | Asia-Pacific | NZ judge orders 'odd' name change ) here's a page of some funny names I found on Wiki.

List of unusual personal names - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I think my favourite is Creedence Cleerwater Couto. Yorkshire Bank PLC Are Fascist Bastards is pretty good as well.

I wasn't aware GG Allin was named Jesus Christ Allin by his parents.

"He was given this messianic name because his father, Merle Allin, Sr. (a religious and antisocial man), then 32 years old, had told his wife, Arleta Gunther, then 21 years old, that an angel had visited him and told him that his newborn son would be a great man in the vein of the Messiah."

Holy fuck, how mistaken was he????

that's made my day!

Gwenda Deadman made me chuckle.

It's not easy living with a "funny" name.

Try Richard Cockburn for example.

Yes before anyone says it Dick Cock-burn

and yes that is my actual name.

Its pronounced Coburn and i am constantly irritated correcting people.

My answerphone message is quite funny though (im my opinion).

I verbally berate the caller before they even get a chance to say my name and warn them that pronouncing it wrong will lead to the immediate deletion of there message.
