I posted these on another thread (way back when), and they got some laughs... there was a guy in high school named Richard Horney, and he did go by "Dick." Then there was a guy with the last name Ho, and he dated a girl named Mai (pronounced My) - the running joke was if they got married, he could introduce her as "My Ho."

And one of my best friends has a made-up name, Chashee, which is pronounced Cha-Shay... but people call her Chachie, Chasheeee, Chichi, you name it. Doesn't help that she has a difficult last name, which most people also butcher. There's a reason she just goes by Shay now, LOL.

Cool What's in a name? Not much, sometimes.

I am a school teacher, so this pains me to have to tell about my name.

It was a fairly common first name 50-60 years ago and still used today, but mine is not spelled the most common way.

ONLY teachers that I had in school ever mispronounced it!! Everyone else, including the village clown, pronounced it perfectly!

My C-D screen name has been, jokingly, referred to "gamekeeper" and my all time favorite "gym sneaker".
I consider them terms of endearment.

My sister in law went to high school with a girl named Ikentina Turner.

And in my hometown there was a urologist named Dick Tapper.

I'm serious, you can't make this stuff up.

Actual names found from a whitepages.com search:

Ding Dong
Harry Sack
Harry Balls
Harry Butt
Harry Peter
Long Dong
Harley Davidson
Oscar Mayer
Richard (Dick) Boob
Richard (Dick) Head
Armin Rump (I guess its better than "head in" rump)
Harry Back
Wes Testes
Dick Love
Harold (Harry) Dude
Sharron Cumm
Sharon Dick
Sharon Cox
Harry Cox
Red C o c k
Bull C o c k

I don't know about everyone else, but I would be changing my name if I had any names like that.....I can't see how anyone would keep a last name like Boob, C o c k, Dick, Testes, Balls, etc. It would be torture going through life, especially as a kid in school, with names like that. Can you imagine being Red C o c k or Harry Balls and trying to order a pizza? They'd probably hang up on you.

What are the parents who give their kids these names thinking????

There's a guy in Birmingham, Alabama, named Vesuvius J. Bobo.

Also, the President of Ram Tool, Incorporated was a woman named Mimi Head. Her husband is named Dick. No, I'm not kidding you.
