I have now met 2 people, with the name Jenny Taylor. On paper, this looks fine, however, I would ask you to say this out loud.....

Also, I had a customer called Stanley Knife

I have also come across : Maris Piper, Joan Bone, Alison Madison, Helen Mellon, Ken Tuckey, Mark Clark....

What crazy names have you encountered?
