    What are the funniest actual names you have ever heard?

    What are some truly awfully funny names you have ever heard. One of my favorites is Young Boozer. The only rule for answering this question is the name has to belong to a real person, no made up names please!

    I'm not sure if animals count in this question, but I have 2 cats, both named by my children. Their names? "Soda Pop" and "Geeko". 

    I call Geeko "Fattass" because he is huge and loves attention. I wrote a Hub about them recently. Here's is the link if you are interested: http://hubpages.com/hub/I-Love-My-Cats

    As far as Human names, I have met a lot of people with names that represent months. Not that it's weird or funny, but I went to grade school with a girl named "January". I have met woman with names such as April and May, have never met a February, but I have seen the names June, July, and August. 

    Many of these names may be variations of other names. Augusto, Julie, etc. I think it's kind of cool!

    Ok. I am serious. I knew a guy once named Harry Koloen and whenever the teacher would call his name, the kids would snicker (hairy colon).

    I also knew a guy named Richard Wahd. His nickname was Dick. Well, I guess you can imagine when the teachers called his name!

    There are a bunch but the first few that always come to mind are (and yes they are real) Ark Noah, Lincoln Abraham and a really funny one Dick Bieting (and that one just ain't right :-P)

    I used to teach in a public school classroom. One year there was a kid on campus whose name was Cactus Jack Daniels. Then I was talking about it church and laughing about it (yes, not very Christ-like, I know) and this kid in the youth group heard me and said, "hey, he's my cousin." Boy, insert foot into mouth, huh? There was also a kid named Seven one year and I really wanted to know if his parents had watched that Seinfeld episode.

    I work in a hotel that handles large meetings for companies.  They usually put out name plates for those participating.  I like to look for funny names.  The other day there was a Jack Stack.  And Johnnie Carson..who was an economic ambassador from Nairobi.

    Joey Joe-Joe. The bass player in my very first band was named Joey Joe-Joe. That was his actual given name. I never found out his last name but when he turned 18 he legally changed his name to Joseph Ash. Most people still call him JJ.

    I taught an 8th grade student named Trivia. The worst part was that the word trivia -- unimportant information -- was one of the eighth grade vocabulary words. The poor girl. She had no idea until that lesson just how bad her name was.

    Many years ago, I met a young woman, named September Thorne. Although it's a beautiful name, it is unusual.

    I also worked with a guy, named Dusty Rhodes. I kid you not.

    Gee I don't know if this is funny....
    But it's definitely worth a mention!!
    We live in Australia and there are hundreds of surrounding land masses collectively called the Pacific Islands. Like any small nation, the people look up to larger countries - money, music, movies...it's all influenced by America and Australia etc.

    One day we got word from a pair of friends who had spent time on one of these smaller Islands, they were telling us about this lovely couple they had met and their two daughters. They wanted to give their girls American names and after much consideration decided to go with the names Gonorrhea and Syphilus. No, they didn't have the heart to tell them that they had named their daughters after STDs!

    Another pair of names I heard on the radio - twin boys, American.
    I can't think of how to write this so it will read as funny as it sounds. The names are pronounced with a French accent Lem-onge-ello and Or-onge-ello. However, they spell their names Orangejello and Lemonjello. Those must have been some hard core drugs they gave that mother as she brought them into the world! Makes you wonder if she lost a bet!

    I used to know someone named Richard Fish. He insisted on being called "Dicky" So "Dicky " Fish it was. smile

    For those in need of explanation, "Dicky" is slang for food that is going bad and smelly.

    I think it might be designed into the formula to push you on a timeline rather than letting a hub linger . I have hubs that drop below 50 and down into the low 40's mainly because there is no activity on them. Some of those at times have been at the top of the charts. One thing for sure is that the opinion of the reader has very little effect in the movement of the score...another fallacy in this being a "writer's site". WB

    No one will believe me, but a guy I graduated with was actually named Bang D. Ho.  I honestly thought it was a joke myself.

    I have also met 2 brothers both named Kenneth.  Why?  Who knows.  They were a year apart, but they were both Kenneth.

    This hub is hilarious. It seems people nowadays feel the neccesity to name their kids names that are made up. Anyway, I had a great great uncle named Hercumer. He was married to Crazy Maud whose brain was shot by alcoholism. They were an intersting couple to say the least. Thanks creating a topic that brightened my day.

    I went to a school where we called our teachers by their first names... one of my teachers was called lona... She must have gone through hell as a kid, and I remember when she told my class her name there was definately a ripple of derisive laughter, though me as a goody two shoes I actually pitied her the second it came out of her mouth.

    I used to work in an archive, where all the last wills and testaments for every person in England and Wales were stored.  According to law, 50 years after the person died, some of the documents relating to that person's estate had to be destroyed.  This was my job, where I encountered some very amusing names.

    One was a woman who had been called Fanny Grewcock, another was a man with the surname of Pinecoffin, another was called Dick Head, and another was Davy Crockett Gaycomings.  There were plenty others, which I cannot remember now.
