Went skiing with a big group of lads.... Only girl with us... Miss Horney
People contacting the new right wing GB News channel giving their names as Mike Hunt and Mike Oxlong!
My father's lawyer was called
Geoff De'ath (pronounced dee athh, not death)
Probably specialized in will writing.
Turning this topic on its head slightly, the quite awful GB News today read out viewer e-mails from, among others, Tess Tegal and Clee Torez lol
The trolling with names has been amusing. There's a story a read somewhere with a huge list.
I was intrigued so switched over to it yesterday. Managed about 10 mins before I had to switch it off. It's a shame because Neil was one of the few decent political presenters.
Back on track.
I know someone who's surname is Falconer. I suggested they call their daughter Millennium, or Millie for short. Didn't go down well.
A good few years ago I dated Lou Pipe.
When she set her own company up she used he mum's maiden name. Cant think why.
Dis she open up a plumbing company?
I once knew a Native American chap who had a very unusual name. When I asked him how he got it, he explained that in his tribe boys are always named after the first thing that the father sees after he leaves the wigwam for the first time after the birth. For example, his own father was called Running Horse because his old man had seen a horse running past when left the tent, while his Grandfather was named Grey Cloud because his Pa had looked up... etc etc. "So," he said rather wearily, "that's why I'm called Two Dogs F**ing"
I once knew a guy called Gordon Bennett.
We also had the following names in the US office.
Lucky he wasn't called Richard Cheese.
That is so old you must have needed to blow the dust off it after you got it out the attic .
I know a Dr De'ath. Perfectly serious.
And a Urological Surgeon called Mr Ball, first name Richard. Again absolutely true
Saw this boxer interviewed on the Olympic coverage the other day:
What a tasteful name!
There was a kid at school called Richard Head, thats all I have.
I met a Kevin De’ath , always thought it was a superb name, also met Jesus Alfonso
Recently, at work, there has been e-mails involving: Dr ThankGod Ebenezer.
Or it came from a miniature book free gift in an ancient packet of Coco Krispies (Sweep's Favourite).
I was at university with William Richard John C ock.
Saw something written by him, assumed it was a joke but nope. Mr. W.Ankers.
My dad had three subordinates who shared an office. He was a stickler for protocol, and ensured their nameplates were in strict surname alphabetical order; Messrs - Kiss, Darling and Mycock
Rainer Pepperkok has sent me a work related e-mail. Is it spicy or just misshapen I wonder?
I had meetings this week with Helmut Fritz and Thomas Bouwels.
My favourite footballer name of all time - Christ Bongo. Played for Hannover amongst others.
There’s a Richard k u n t z at my company.
And I get professional body emails from an Anne Franke
The head honcho (or maybe that should be top banana) at the Royal Horticultural Society at Wisley is a Mr. Keith Weed.
Or should this be in the Nominative Determinism thread?
I would have preferred him to be a urologist.
Reading used to have a keeper called Steve De'ath. Not being a Reading fan, he was dead to me.
De’Ath is a relatively common surname, but the Reading keeper was actually Steve Death. Sadly, he did die at a very young age.
Death, sans apostrophe, was a middle name of Lord Peter Wimsey. He uses it as part of an alias in ‘Murder Must Advertise’.
I’m in @IBlameBassett territory here.
Genuinely the name of an utter failure of a footballer.
