DO NOT TURN THIS INTO A SILLY THREAD (string?)

This thread will no doubt have you staring blanking ahead at your screen as you come up with people's real birth names that are unusual.

-Try to avoid shortened or nicknames.
-Try to keep this to people that you have met or known personally
-List unusually funny sounding or unusually cool sounding names

And most importantly, please keep yourself from trouble by avoiding listing names of members at this site unless they truly qualify in the above criteria. NO PERSONAL ATTACKS!

I wish that I could remember all of the unusual names of people I have met over the years. LOL, I wish I could remember more than just recently.

In the States this might be easier as this is a huge melting pot. To be politically correct, a multi-ethnically diverse country. So true where I live. I have found the most 'inventive' names to come from the African-American subculture.

OK, I'll start with my own birth name. I was born Mortimer E Poindexter III. Due to peer pressure and frequent bodily harm I changed to simply Bob. jocolor J/K

Seriously, here are some people that I've met:

Tequila
Obi (from Africa)
Prince
Fancy
Gaye
Mercedes
Asia
Bing Cherry
CoCo
Chi Chi
LeZahna (pronounced like the food)
Reevance (unusually cool)
Duck Park (elderly Korean woman)
Hope
Faith
Joy
Luvie (large black man)
Chester
Herman
Knute and Newt
Kermit

Dweezil & Moon Unit don't count as I have not met them ROFL

More will come to me, I'll add as I remember.

A guy I went to school with was named Mark Stretch. On the roll, he was Stretch, Mark Shocked

Taught a girl named Summer Knight. Knew a girl named Tiziana (pronounced Tit-siana, who had her name abbreviated to..... Razz ). And for the Doctor Who fans, I've also taught an Adric and Romana.

Then there's Otis, Kenaniah, Saxon, Taron, Talyssia, Gage and Jeames, to name a few...

One of the producers for one of those Law and Order shows is "Dick Wolf".

That's got to be weird he picks up some medication and it says "Wolf Dick" on the bottle.

I had a friend in 2nd grade whose full name was Raul Redy Gopu

If you add the word get between Raul and Redy, it is just fascinating for someone in second grade

I remember watching Beavis and Butthead making fun of a Blondie video.

Butthead: "Hey, Beavis, this chick real name is like, Deborah Harry. If you look her up in the phone book, it says 'Harry (hairy) Deborah'. huh huh"
