What's the most job appropriate name you've seen?

Asked by robmandu (21293points) September 18th, 2008 from iPhone

I’m in a chiropractor’s office. And his name is Dr. McCracken.

Used to go to a dentist named Dr. Molar.

And I think there’s a tv weatherman with the last name of Sprinkle in the Charlotte area.

Dr. Tooth the dentist. Really.

Not that it’s related to his profession, but there’s a reporter in Tupelo named Richard Chedder. You can guess what we nick-named him!

My local news network affiliate has a meteorologist named Dallas Raines.

My wife’s OB/GYN is Dr. Morrissey.

tinyfaery's avatar

Oh yeah. Dallas with the uber tan.

In the town I grew up in, we had a dentist named Dr. Moler. There is also a mortuary named Goodbody’s.

Nimis's avatar

Not exactly a profession, but I once knew a girl named Happy…who wasn’t very happy.
This is starting to sound like a limerick.

scamp's avatar

I found a site with some funny names.

jca's avatar

there once was a girl named happy,
who had sex with her pappy,
this didn’t help her mood,
so she began to frown and brood,
and now i’m done with my rappy.

A guy with the last name Pyro was a chimney sweep.

Skippy's avatar

gotta friend named Cris Cross. She’s a GIS clerk at the County Mapping office

Nimis's avatar

Do you think all of these people just careerially (totally made that up) caved under the constant ridicule and pressure? Name as self-fulfilling prophecy?
Except Happy, of course. Poor girl.

JackAdams's avatar

I know a girl named IMELDA who works for the Post Office!

I think this is kind of the opposite of job appropriate, but I once had a french teacher named Mr. English. No joke.

dalepetrie's avatar

My childhood dentist was named Dr. Skull. (though it was pronounced School).

robmandu's avatar

< < is really glad he asked this question. What fun!

St.George's avatar

Not a job, but I met her on a job, a girl whose name was Cleo Patrick.

My husband was looking at hearing aids and the Dr’s name was Dr Silence.

Dr. Smoker
Dr. Hurt (dentist)
Dr. Cockburn (urologist)

shadling21's avatar

Dale Driver. In many of my friend’s short films he’s cast as the driver. The joke is starting to get a little old…

Nimis's avatar

Kevbo: Cockburn?
Seriously? Really?

kevbo's avatar

Look him up in Taos, NM. Crazy, I know. ;-)

pwyatt's avatar

Barber in my mother-in-law’s hometown named Harry Deeds.

NFL kicker named Longwell.

Met an upholster named Stapleton.

My cousin married a urologist named Dr. Weiner.

Nimis's avatar

Pwy: Hopefully your cousin is a he.
Taking the last name by patriarchal lineage is load of crock.
It should be whoever has the cooler name.
Though, of course, we wouldn’t have entertaining threads like this one.

whatthefluther's avatar

My doctor has an associate, Dr. Doctor.

flameboi's avatar

I went to this bar named Oasis…
When I asked the waiter that I wanted to meet the owner he told me:
“Mr. Gallagher will be with you in a minute..”
No joke, it wasn’t neither Liam nor Noel, but it was fun :p

whatthefluther's avatar

My brother-in-law, last name Diamond, owned a jewelry store (up until several years ago).

robmandu's avatar

@whatthefluther, his first name wasn’t Dustin perchance?

JackAdams's avatar

The son of the late US Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall, John W. Marshall, was a director of the US Marshals Service, but was never addressed as “Marshal Marshall,” for some reason, even though technically, that was his correct title.

whatthefluther's avatar

@robmandu…My brother-in-law is quite a character and was even a bit wild in his youth but his behavior never sank to the lows exhibited by Mr. Dustin Diamond.

lercio's avatar

I know an ex-catering manager called Meal and an internet security analyst called Hackett.

generalspecific's avatar

I’m thinking of going into some sort of environmental science field, maybe something to do with water-y type sciences, and my last name is Waters :)

generalspecific's avatar

oh, and I once went to a Dr. Harm
I thought it was pretty amusing

kullervo's avatar

Had a teacher in school named Mrs English… and yes she taught english.
Had a friend who worked in finance with surname Bogus – don’t know how he gets business.

martinf's avatar

I had a drama teacher named Sandy Butt, who NEARLY named her daughter Tanya.

ezraglenn's avatar

What’s wrong with Tanya Butt? I mean, Butt is a shitty last name (no pun intended) but (no pun intended) Sandy Butt is way worse of a name than Tanya Butt. Tanya is just a normal (albeit annoying) first name. And while some Tanyas (or Tonyas) are asses, (see Tonya Harding), it makes no difference. Tanya Butt could’ve achieved greatness.

dalepetrie's avatar

What’s wrong with Tanya Butt?

Tan ya butt.

As in, “I’m gonna tan ya butt for that.”

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

Sandy Butt’s way worse

robmandu's avatar

Better than naming the kid Enya.

dalepetrie's avatar

If she had twins she could name them Ima and Ura

MacBean's avatar

Found this site the other day, and was reminded of this question.

robmandu's avatar

I dunno about job appropriate but, definitely fun to say:

Doris Day. Dermatologist.

robmandu's avatar

Oh wow! Can’t believe I just remembered this now.

My sister did an internship in the US Attorney’s office… and one of the attorneys there was named Charlie Murder.

hallydayfan's avatar

Ex-roommate was a complete bitch. Wouldn’t take care of her cats. Her alcoholic father drank my good German beer and he used my soap. Ewwww. Last name was Butts.

MacBean's avatar

haha! Yeah, there was a really jerky kid in my year in high school whose last name was Pratt. Always thought it was pretty fitting.
