I once worked with a person who'd gone to school with a girl called Myrtle Turtle. I have never stopped loving that.

Any others?

(Not in the spirit of taking the piss out of people's choices, more in the sense of acknowledging parents' genius)

Honey Boon. I always thought it like honeymoon with a cold.

I think you're just going to be inundated with people mocking names op or the urban legends like the child called "L-a" etc etc

delila I honestly don't mean it like that. I mean the ones where the parents obviously had a sense of humour. Lots of people take names so seriously - for obvious reasons! - and I like it where someone's been a bit tongue in cheek with it.

I knew a Phillip Phillipson in junior school getting.

I thought the surname was literal due to his dad also being called Phillip..

And talking of Dicks ! My friend knew a girl who was marrying a Mr Dick. Problem was her name was Rhoda !
They v wisely both took her surname instead !

I once had an elderly neighbour called John John. According to him he was abandoned at birth and the note found with him only said "John", so he used it for both first and last name as he didn't know his real last name.

Genuinely went to school with Jennifer Taylor, known as Jenny.
Never thought anything of it until decades later I was listening to Chris Moyles doing a thing on funny names and laughed about Jenny Taylor, suddenly it clicked 😳😳😳😂😂
