There was a journalist and news reporter in Australia by the name of Harry Potter. When signing off, he'd say his name really fast

Wonder if anyone asked him wizarding questions

Really? It's not like either name is uncommon.

Nicki Minaj's Cousin's Friend's Swollen Testicle: Really? It's not like either name is uncommon.


I quite agree, Petunia.

/ the joke is that in the 1st chapter of the 1st book there is a very similar thought expressed by Vernon and Petunia Dursley

I don't know why this is surprising.  Rowling picked very relatable, pedestrian names for her protagonist.  Harry's friends have slightly less-common names.  His enemies and the outlandish characters in the school have sinister or weird names.

People won't believe me either when I tell them my name is Gene Masseth. "Yeah, that old joke, and I'm Phil McCracken" they say. I have to pull out my ID to show I'm not joking.

That's because everyone knows you're really Haywood Jablome.

A friend of mine works with a guy named Dick Wacker.  And he doesn't try to cover it up and insist that his name is Richard Wacker.   He comes right out and is like "Hi!  I'm Dick Wacker!  Damn glad to meet ya!"

Reminds me of the story about the BBC employee named 'Blackadder', back just before the first series went on the air.  He begged them to change the character's name, but, nope, no deal.

His life thenceforth became a living hell.

He needs to change his name to something less famous, like Tom Riddle.

I had 9th grade English class with a kid named "Ben Dover."  He said his dad named him that because he thought it would be funny.  He went by his middle name.

My last name is Zimmerman.  All my life people have been asking if I'm related to Bob Dylan (real last name Zimmerman for those that don't know). I finally started saying, "who the hell is that and why would I be related to someone named Bob Dylan".

Unfortunately his middle name was Distended Anus.

My oldest son has dark unruly hair and glasses so good match for Harry Potter. Multiple years, no matter what he wore to Gencon there would be at least a couple people thinking he was a Harry Potter cosplayer.

"A man called Harry Potter said he has spent his whole life trying to convince people his name is really the same as the world's most famous wizard."

I believe Merlin might like a word.

Also, ..."when he met his wife for the first time"

Arranged marriages suck.

I know an Indiana Jones. He was home schooled so a few times he got the "why aren't you in school?" from cops on the street and they always thought he was messing with them when he told them his name.
