I knew a pain doctor named Dr. Hertz.

I had a boss whose last name was Dick. She said her daughter became a doctor and had her last name changed because she didn’t want to be Doctor Dick. Hahaha.

I’ve known a Tom Collins and a Richard Eader (that went by Dick). I also always felt sorry for Tom Crapper…the guy that was credited with creating the toilet (hence, the crapper). It was actually Sir John Harrington (hence, The John)

@kritiper I knew a Grey Wolfe. I think his parents thought they were being clever. I think it’s a bit much.

@Yellowdog You do not actually know a Craven Moorehead.

@elbanditoroso: I don’t know. This was my boss in 1996 so I am not able to ask her now. I know she changed the name, to what, I don’t know. I was googling the mother who retired back when and moved to Florida but the name ______ Dick in Florida is not uncommon, and she’s probably still alive. Probably in her late 80’s now. What the daughter’s name is or was, I don’t know.
