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!
I THINK IT WOULD HAVE TO BE MARY CHRISTMAS, AND HOLLY BERRY, GOING THROUGH SCHOOL WITH EITHER OF THESE WOULD HAVE BEEN HARD FOR ANY KID!!!
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)
When my husband was a children's talent scout he met this kid named D'Finest Driver...no lie. I will NEVER forget that one.
My husband met a person years ago whose name was Sophetta. For me it is Pierpont.
Clitori Princess...... I need say no more do I?! She was a girl at my daughters school!
Hah. I once met a guy called Curfew. and that was the most hilarious name i have ever come across.
My favorite was a guy I met when I was 19 and his name was Bubba
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'm friends with a guy in North Carolina named Duncan Hines. That is really his name! lol...he's not as delicious as he sounds.
I know a Jerusha, a Xioka, and an Alizabeth. Yes. Spelled with an A instead of an E. I don't even know what normal is, nor do I care to.
I work with a guy whose name is Brown Carr. I don't know if he drives a brown car, but it would be hilarious if he did!
Kat11 we meet people named Bubba all the time here in Georgia!
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.
My husbands Niece is in the Australian Naval Academy her husband changed his name to Seymore Butts (before she met him) . He is actually a really nice guy, I guess he thinks its funny.
I used to have a work contact in Singapore called Siu Khing Khok. (You have to say it very fast in case you don't get it- apologies if my answer has offended anyone)
Well at church here was a little girl that the priest called porker. So… ya pretty strange.
Hey i knew a guy named TORA BORA...
TORA BORA means black mountain... Funny
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.
For those in need of explanation, "Dicky" is slang for food that is going bad and smelly.
I had to mail samples of J&J baby lotion to Drs all over the U.S. It was in the performance of this duty that I came acrosss the name of an Oriental pediatrician in Cali. Suk Duk Dong. I hope the pronunciation is different than it looks. Poor guy!
back in my previous job there was a colleague whose name was Sue Willoughby Ankers.
When there was mail for her, it would show up as
I try my best not to laugh
but always fail.
I had this teacher once, who's name was Ms. Sandy Dick. A lot of the kids who pronounce it Meh sandy dick.
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
Growing up in a very small town(500 people), it was funny that there were two men in our town named Harry Barry and Charlie Brown...oh, and we had the Butt family, too--the father was a minister at one of our churches...
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.
When i worked as a bank teller (in another life) there was a customer named Iwanna - we had great fun adding last names.
i work with a fellow named jack frost but his position in the company is to high for anyone to call him frosty to his face ;D
I was in Taiwan and this girl who served me at a McDonalds was named Creamy.
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.
When I was working in retail I remember a customer who was complaining about a return item. He was from some country in Asia, not sure where, and his name was spelled Micok.
I saw a name on a file at work years ago: Wensley Wigginsfagen. Poor kid! I also saw a Noah van Ark in the directory. Lol!
kalle khan, katori devi, sharbati devi, sherry etc...
i mean it may seem as if i am bluffing....but seriously it was hard to believe for me too when i first heard 'em!!!
Andy smouth, get it?
The guy said his name and i was like, ahum, did you really say andys mouth!
A friend of mine named her daughter Dolina Bernadine. I still don't understand how you can look at an innocent child and name them Dolina Bernadine!
LaDasha...but it was spelled La-A. Yes, the "dash" part of her name was actually a dash and not spelled out.
I also have heard Heaven Leigh Skies (that is just setting the kid up to dance on the pole), Sirr and Misterr..they were twins, and finally, Turquoise Bleu.
my sisters friend named her kid Dorkus. no lie i have no clue why but i feel sorry for that kid
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.
I had a friend at school who's mother was called Euphemia. It sounds like an unpleasant disease to me!!

I had a friend years ago who named their Llasa "Useless." Cute name, but not appropriate for this dog. This little thing was far smarter than both her owner and me. After a painful break-up in my 20's, I unexpectedly took over the care of a pup and named him Solo to...
