@Mowens Told me this story, which happened to a friend of his, who we’ll call Jim

Jim is a dermatologist. One day, he had a child visit him who needed a mole removed. The name on the sheet was “La-a”. He entered the office with the page in hand, and unsure of how it should be pronounced, asked if he could see “Law ah”. The mother gave him a stern look and said, very matter of factly: ”Ladasha. You best not be forgetting the dash.”

On my end, I know of a kid named John-the-Baptist. This is his first name, including the hyphens. His mother will correct you if you simply call him John.

I know an orthodontist named Dr. Beaver.
A mortician named Hacker and a surgeon named Dr. Butcher, but those are just strange because of their professions.
I do know a girl named Misty Dawn, but I think that is pretty.

I guess the funny names I can think of are contextually amusing…

My good friend is Mr. Wilcock (he’s gay :D)

I also have a friend named Ayano, which makes for silly introductions
N: “What’s you name?”
A: “Ayano”
N: “How can you not know?!”

My primary care physician in California was Dr. Au (yes, like the “ou” in ouch)

My friend’s realtor was named Mike Hunt. Say it out loud. Truly unfortunate. I can’t figure out why he wouldn’t go by Micheal.

Eggberth Arrindell, Jr.

Isn’t it enough the first time. If you went through your childhood with that name, why would you choose to inflict it on your son also?

JustPlainBarb's avatar

We knew a man named Welcome Baby Darling. He was a business exec. and went by W.B. Darling. We also knew a man named Marcus Farcus .. Sometimes you wonder what parents are thinking when they name their kids.

I once worked with a guy…swear to God…his name was Richard Head. The man had no sense of humor, go figure. Thanks mom and dad, for that handle. And he went by Richard, not Rick or Ricky…it was Richard (DO NOT CALL ME DICK) Head.
Poor phucker.

Pretty_Lilly's avatar

@Corporate_Avenger Funny you said that I actually knew a retired Sargent Major that worked at the Tampa VA his name was Dick Weed and he was completely oblivious to his name.!!! ???

missyb's avatar

My mother-in-law gave most of her kids unusual names: Champ, LaVenna, Bambi, and Davon, Anna and John also, but those aren’t unusual names. LaVenna named her 4 daughters Taylor, Scout, Piper, Asher and Moxie, her little boy on the way will be named Aero.

@Corporate_Avenger and @Pretty_Lilly My stepdad is Richard (Dick) Weed, used to be in the Navy in Norfolk VA. Small world, huh?

She also knew of a Shanda and Cava Leer. (I think they may have been twins)
My sister added that she knew of a Sara Lee and Kitty chou.

Charles. I don’t know why, but that name is hilarious.

filmfann's avatar

I remember when Prince Charles and Princess Diana were expecting their first child.
I was really hoping they would name the child “Up”.

You know, so it would be Up Chuck and Di.

Recently I came across a woman by the name of Hymen Slutski. no joke.

RocketSquid's avatar

I know of a student who’s name is literally pronounced “No Trojan On”. I seriously thought the name was french or something until the mother corrected me, complete with pauses between words.

Great way to let your kid know he was a mistake.

iRemy_y's avatar

@RocketSquid is that how it’s spelled to?

RocketSquid's avatar

@iRemy_y Thankfully it’s not. I don’t want to put the full spelling here, since it’s a, er, fairly unique name and I got it from work.

A mother called in, and I asked for the account number, which she provided. The account came up, and the name was very, very similiar to Nah’Trej’enahn (Obviously not the real spelling). Not wanting to mispronounce the name, I put her on mute and asked a coworker I was talking with how to pronounce it. He thinks about it and starts to laugh, say “No trojan on!” I chuckled and said “I’m not gonna say that”, took her off of mute, and asked if this was for (phonetically) “Neigh Trey Sheeon”, to which the mother replied “No Trojan On”. She had pauses between each word. I barely hit the mute button on time.

LemonJello and OrangeJello and Shithead….heard it a million times and it’s always someone’s student or cousin. I call BULLSHIT!!!!! If I had three wishes, though…they’d all be real humans.

I see this is an old question but had to note: Somebody named Gay B. Dingle-Butler is apparently faxing resumes around my area, for example here. S/he has a LinkedIn profile. Dying to know if this person is for real.

When I first heard it in Texas, I thought Ima Hogg was a fictional person, but it seems she has a big place in Texas history.
