2005-09-12 05:38:29 PM

2005-09-12 05:38:38 PM  
Faithful Cock, Gentle Fudge,

This is way to easy. I will pass.
2005-09-12 05:39:10 PM  
Was Woffles Wu on the list? If not, disregard.
2005-09-12 05:39:15 PM

All Hail the Nosmo King!

Edward Evil.

That would be great. "Hello, I'm Evil." Might put you off getting a PhD or becoming an MD, though. On the other hand, who wouldn't love going into the ER and being treated by Dr. Evil?
2005-09-12 05:41:40 PM  
Heywood Jablome

Eva Destruction

/two classic odd names
2005-09-12 05:41:43 PM

2005-09-12 05:42:14 PM  
I used to know a Dr. Payne...
2005-09-12 05:42:25 PM  
What about "Abcde" & "Pajamas"?
2005-09-12 05:42:38 PM  
big props to submitter. I included Lemonjello and Orangejello in a compilation of stupid baby names. Now maybe someone will believe me.

As an aside, the other week, I was going through the county tax records and found an entry for: Dickhausen, Richard. LOL

I'd rather be treated by Dr. Very Competent Doctor, but Dr. Evil's good too.

I knew a mormon wife named Sharon Dick.

/not really
2005-09-12 05:44:35 PM  
Why wouldn't they link to the list? That pisses me off.

/Too lazy to find it myself.
2005-09-12 05:45:13 PM  
As anyone who has worked customer support would say, "Dang, I wish I had kept my list."

Eileen Sideways??????? Not to mention Chuck Roast
2005-09-12 05:46:32 PM  
The wife and I have been talking about naming a future child (if we have one) "Furious." She asked me one day what I thought, and I had to say, that's pretty good.

/Seriously considering it.
//Don't steal it or I'll hunt you down and kill you.

ZekeMacNeil: Shirley U. Jest!

No I don't and stop calling me Shirley.

I worked with a guy named Wiley Hollopeter. Honest.
2005-09-12 05:49:09 PM  
On another thread on some other site, I read about a woman who named her daughter "Ampersand".

The mom admitted she had no idea what it meant, but thought it sounded lovely.
2005-09-12 05:49:11 PM  
I just love it when I get to read an article about a document, and they don't even take the time to show the actual document, or atleast link to somewhere that has it. Ditto with pictures, Autumn Moon my ass!
2005-09-12 05:49:38 PM  
I resent that headline.
2005-09-12 05:50:37 PM

WHAT!? No Pat McCrotch, Gloria Snockers, Hugh G Rection, or Olliver Clothesoff? Those Brits gotta lot to learn in the wierd name department.
2005-09-12 05:52:39 PM  
Did submitter go to my high school? There were two kids there by the names in the headline... And I thought only SC could produce such idiocy. Who knew these were actually POPULAR names?
2005-09-12 05:52:54 PM  
I had a substitute high school teacher named Harry Ball. He would always crack a joke at the start of class to ease the tension a little.
