Glancing Blow: How many times have they heard someone say, can I speak to the other Kelly?


In a previous job, I worked with a company run by brothers Lannie and Lonnie. I often would get the wrong brother when calling the receptionist.

I hope they are not anti-semites.

They don't have the same name, there middle names are different!

Frankenstorm: I once went out on a date with a guy named Andy Andy.


Was he handy?

It was a hurricane romance.

fusillade762: Marshall Willenholly: Check out this couple: a chick named Kelly married a guy with the last name of Kelly, so her new legal name is Kelly Kelly.

I have a friend named Burke whose baby mama has the last name Burkey. If they ever got married he could take her name and be Burke Burkey.


I had a friend named Tara who was dating a guy named Ty Tyra. If they had married and she took his name, they would have been Ty and Tara Tyra. I lost touch and for all I know they could be married.

So, like, having a totally oh em gee story to tell your BFFs isn't a lifelong bond?

I sent facebook friend invites to several people with the same name as mine. Most responded. it makes for a little confusion on my friends list, but I think it's quite interesting and so far none of us seem to mind. No wackos or anything.

"She's a Florida girl, and I'm a Texas guy," Kelly Carl Hildebrandt of Lubbock, Tex., said. "We really did come from pretty different worlds."

From the mouths of babes.
Would take FL over Fexas anytime

2013-01-13 08:05:28 PM  
To be honest, she seems a bit more rational than him. She may have sent the initial message, but he's the nut that went to Florida to start a relationship, and start a marriage. And she's done the wise thing by dropping off the social grid for now.

Plus, she's hot.

Kelly Katrina Hildebrandt, left, and Kelly Carl Hildebrandt, right, have decided to divorce, more than three years after they met on Facebook because they share the same name.

OMG, they finally called it quits after spending more than *three* years together?? If you've only known your partner for three years you shouldn't even be discussing marriage, let alone already having gone through with it and on your way to your first divorce. These kids sound like they just got married for the novelty factor.

/Married her after seven years

As a guy with a girl's first name it is a possibility for me
 
2013-01-13 08:22:54 PM  
Seeing a girl w/ same last name was a little awkward, having to explain every time we went anywhere. Worse was her brother having the exact same name.
 
2013-01-13 08:23:15 PM  
So if I change my name to match, she'd do me, right?

What a coincidence; I have a niece named "Oldiron."
 
2013-01-13 08:26:06 PM  
I am a guy with a girl's name. When I was dating, I was always worried I would be interested in a girl with the same name. It's just weird to me. These two people were destined for failure in my view. No surprise here at all.
 
2013-01-13 08:26:39 PM  
We haven't gone quite so far in our family, but we have done the same last name thing quite a bit. Apparently we don't like to try new names? I mean, my aunt and uncle had the same initials and last name. My cousin married a man with the same last name as her grandmother.

My first marriage was the same thing - same first initial, same last name. Saved arguing about name changes, but lots of jokes about hyphenation. It also confused my son since he had uncles on both sides of the family with the same first and last names.

I'll never do it again. My second marriage is to a woman with a last name that's long and German. Nobody here can spell it so why bother hyphenating, right?

Why would parents give a brother and sister the exact same name?

I would have attempted this on Fark, but I don't want to move to Canadia, and I don't think Gba is into dudes. Neither am I.

Marying someone with any parts of the same name is like name incest.

My (full) initials are ADD. When my fiancee and I get married, her initials will be DD. Our son's initials are TLD.

For the guy it was like she's hot i want to get married, take some time to get to know each other, it sounded like they just met when he popped the question. Slow it down people it's not a contest.

She's a looker.

balki1867: There's some idiot out there with my name who keeps giving out my email address to people. I get all kinds of weird stuff sent to me and I usually have fun coming up with creative ways to reply.

His fiance sent me a valentine last year-- I thought that was nice of her.



I get a ton of misdirected e-mail for several people with a similar name that don't know their e-mail addresses. Just today, some lady from a church.

My favorite was a man whose wife would send me e-mails, his girlfriend, then soon his angry ex-wife. Turned out he worked at google and had "myname@google" for an address whereas mine was @gmail. This somehow confused many people.

Oh, and then the guy from Greenbush NY who ordered several men's thongs and a big tub of lube. I have his receipt.

Another man from New Zealand, a banker I think, would get photos from his friends of drunk women passed out in their hotel rooms.

I should start a blog...

A guy who worked at the grocery store across from where I used to live was named Frasier Frazer. I may be off on the spelling, but you get the gist.

I have a unisex name that no one had when I was a kid. In the last few years it's exploded in popularity for girls and remained the same for boys. I'm worried about 10 years in the future when I'll be a 40-year-old man with a name associated with tween girls.

ElizaDoolittle: Kevin72: ElizaDoolittle: This reminds me why I oppose same-name marriage.

Fine. Don't let them get "married". Just grant them all the privileges and benefits and rights that male-female married couples are entitled to.

Nonsense.  Think of the sanctity of marriage.  Need I remind you that the Bible is quite clear that marriage involves a couple with different names?

Newt & Jackie; Newt & Marianne; Newt & Callista.  Those are all fine examples of a couple with different names who respect the sanctity of marriage.  Kelly & Kelly?  Sir, I do not think so.


Brilliant. Another example of this is Bill and Hillary.

Why not? I dated my wife 10 years before we married. Been married 10 years now, with many more to go. So 20 years together and still going strong. Knowing each other before marriage is a good thing.

In my social circle there is a couple that are both named Chris. The rest of us refer to them as Girl Chris and Boy Chris.

I am 39, and when out in public not a day goes by that I do not hear someone calling my name, and a little girl answers. You get used to it.

So she's a drunken whore that wakes up naked on park benches and he's a gun-loving closet-homo hard-core Baptist.

Yeah, I could see how that wouldn't work out.

Aww, how cute. The best things I've recieved in place of my doppelgangers recently were a pre-release study on disease vectors, a personal photo from a club manager in Swindon, UK of him hugging something called a 'Gaz', and an invite to come drink wine with a church choir in Chicago, IL.

I had a gf with the same last name, and we didn't have a problem. In fact, back in onion-belt-wearing, lawn-respecting days, it meant we could stay in the same hotel room without country folk thinking there was something scandalous about it.
