Recently dealt with a woman at work who had called her daughter Beau - all very well but unfortunately this was teamed with the surname Lock.
I wonder sometimes if people think through how names will work together.

I know of a Joyce Joyce (why would you not just keep your maiden name)

Marnie McKnight (Marmite?)

Kylie Currie (just sounds so wrong)

Then there is the lady who my dh used to work with, she wanted to double barrel her name when she got married, the choice was either Mrs Curry-Topping or Topping-Curry. She is simply Mrs Topping.

Curry is following a theme here.

I used to work at a school where one of the students was called Mark Hunt. His dad, who was also a governor, was called Michael.

How we laughed grin.

Another kid was called Lee King. There were others but I can't remember them <racks brains>

At work there are two chaps who sit next to one another - our workplace has cubicles with your name in signs. Now their full names are not unusual, but one surname is Gay and the other's is Camp.

Well it makes me laugh anyway.
