    Recently, I have been dealing with:

    Tobias Fuhrer and Bjoern Titz. A Norwegian colleague told me that Bjoern/Bjorn is Scandi for Bear. This made me larf alot.

    I once attended a conference in Houston where Welcome Bender was also in attendance. At the airport was a large Hertz car rental/taxi sign being held up with Welcome Bender on it. God, did I larf.

    Hi. I'm John Smith.
    Welcome Bender.
    Fight ensues.

    There is also Prof. Dr. Erich E. W@nker and his W@nker Lab in Berlin. I assume he hasn't been invited to give a seminar in the UK.

    Pure comedy gold.

    There was an Ariel Bender in Mott the Hoople but that wasn’t his real name.

    Looking up colleagues names in the Dutch office was always a bit of a giggle. I particularly remember Dirk Donker, Watze Hilarius, **** Slot and Joost van der does de Willebois

    Yes, I used to work with a Freek D1cks.

    When I left uni I worked in a bank for a bit and remember some funny customer names. A woman called Lettuce Plant was one. There was also one called James Onions with absolutely no apostrophe. If anyone called him Onions he’d go mental and say it was oh-ny-ons, like hyacinth bucket. There was also a bender but I can’t remember his first name.

    My Mrs in Norwegian and always has a giggle when we play Boremuff. A certain Steve Cook sounds very similar to Stiv Kuk in Norwegian. Translated back to English is Stiff C o c k .

    There's a chap I regularly email back and forth with a dutch surname of van dik. Probably as common as Smith is here, but it always makes me smile.

    I also can't help smirking whenever I see a fridge with "Smeg" in big letters across the front. I have always hoped they keep semen samples in such a fridge somewhere!

    One of my first jobs was on the help desk for a finance company.

    The names I remember fondly are Ethelred Plunkett and an old couple whose preferred names were Fanny and D1ck.

    At my last employment one of my company's clients had a chap called Tudor King, I wonder if he had a brother called Stuart.

    I taught a student once called Ke Wang. He was Chinese and the names are reversed. He informed us that 'Ke' was pronounced 'Kerr'.

    Surprise, surprise! In a work e-mail, Dame Cilla Snowball is going to be chairing a discussion on diversity.

    I knew of someone called Maria C u n t o. Even more astoundingly, she was formerly a sex & relationships education advisor in Bedfordshire. A mental health support officer, also in the Beds area was Dee Press. Both are true! I had to introduce Maria at a conference once. I only used her first name...

    As we know, Bedfordshire can be an odd place.

    In popular culture, hearing **** Pound’s name always raised a smile.

    I had a meeting once with a guy called Tony Cheese. Simple but effective in the humour stakes.

    There’s also a master chocolatier in Belgium called Eddy Von Tittelboom.

    Was once on a conference call with a chap called Randy Handcock. One of my previous firms had an online directory with someone called Robert Sherunkle on it though I'm sure that was an IT pisstake.
