Names that made you think wtf?

My friends Mum recently had a baby and couldn't think of a middle name for her newborn girl. The Mum has a teenage sister, so whilst walking to the birth registration place, she let her pick the middle name just so her daughter had one. Turned out to be a normal name but what a way to pick a name.

There was a boy in my year who's middle name(s) were Ryan Giggs.

Anyone else come across strange reasons/funny names that made you wonder why the parents would want to put there child through it? Grin

Was reading an article ages ago about a body that went missing from a funeral home, and one of the guys mentioned in the article was called Dick Tips.

And there's an author named Dick Swaab.

Both bloody dismal. You'd change your name or go by fucking Richard surely?

You'd be amazed.
I can't list any as I come across them through work, and, because they are unique, I obviously can't mention them on here, but whenever I need to look through the database of names, it goes through my head that there ought to be some kind of "monitor of sensibleness" sitting at the registry office and refusing to allow people to give their poor kids such ridiculous names. I also often think 'MN would love these' Wink

Alice Cooper (little girl at DDs nursery)

There's a character on the new Netflix series Riverdale called Alice Cooper... and I just think, "Did no one do a quick google search before they named these characters?!"

There must be a few Mike Hunts out there.

Friend of a friend was apparently called Crystal Maze. Not sure of the spelling, and I think she was actually named before the TV show.

I've met a Dr D'Eath.

Thought of another one. The miserable hag careers adviser at my high school was named Philippa Condon.

And that was her married name. She chose to be called that.

I don't actually know this family, but a friend of mine knows a couple who named their son Daddy-Cool. I really hope that little boy is cool enough to make that name work for him!

Deputy head (or one of those roles) at my sixth form was Jo King.
Always made me laugh when she introduced herself at the beginnings of assemblies
