I have just come across someone who proudly bears the name of Buckmaster de Wolf. It is the awesomest name I have ever heard! Does anyone have any similar awesome names?

I went to uni with the someone by the fabulous name of Julian Gawain Clifford-Wills. He was known by a nickname totally unrelated to his name.

I love the name St John.

Racster is a nice name. Rack for short.

A friend of a friend on Facebook is named Jesus Santana, which is surely the coolest name ever.

My late uncle was named St John, I was in my late teens before I knew it was an unusual name.

I worked with someone in education called Bridie Sharkey. I've never forgotten it, I thought it was a cool name.

I had a one night 'fling' with a Jesus. He was from South America though and was pronounced Heysus, although he was lovely looking and had the best accent ever. It wasn't sustainable, but age 25 he was God like- the name really suited him.

I know 2 brothers called David & Sam Cameron....

I used to go to school with a German boy whose name was Ronald Hamburger. He was inevitably known as Big Mac.

There is someone coming to give a talk at my work called Dr Ultan Power. Which is a brilliant name. I swing between expecting Austin Powers or maybe his arch enemy Ultimate Power. I'm looking forward to his talk just to see which he is more like (probably neither, probably very normal)

JakeBallard a one night stand with a god-like Jesus? I'm sure there's a joke in there about missing the Second Coming, but alas I have a newborn and therefore am stupid and can't think of the best one!

I give you... Neleka Chuckly.

She suited her name to a t.

I know a Charles Jupiter Gannicliffe.

My patisserie teacher was called Mrs Sweet.

My dad's boss was called Edward clough (pronounced clue). His office door said Mr E. Clough.

I know Richard and Rosie Rainbows. Just perfect.

At school we had a Dr De'ath, pronounced dee-ath. Yeah, obviously we didn't pronounce it like that.

I know a divorce solicitor who goes by the name of Miss A. Love.

I used to get sent emails meant for the person listed above me in the company Outlook address book whose first name was Troy - which is difficult to say without doing a movie trailer voiceover voice

Watching Once upon a time last night, noticed the fabulously named Brian Wankum produced it!

JuneFromBethesda Mon 24-Apr-17 12:52:22

The coolest name I have ever come across is someone I've had brief email contact with at work: Assumpta Lawless. She sounds like a comic book heroine to me. Fabulous.

MissDallas Mon 24-Apr-17 12:54:30

There are some fabulous names on this thread!

I remember a girl in the opticians who have her name as Petra Smythe. It was years ago but I thought it was a fabulous name and never forgot it.

There is a boy in DS'a class called Maximilliano.

It's not as good as some here but my friend dated an estate agent called Crawford Moxley which I think sounds like a Bond villain or spy.

He's not actually that interesting in real life.
