There's an American film and tv producer/director named David Nutter, and also one named Brian Wankum.

Also on the religious channels on Sky one of the preachers was called Oral Roberts. What parent would name their child "Oral"?
He even has a university named after him

To name someone after it sounds like it must be something special.

I think the funniest I have ever heard is last year on the news, there was a guy called 'Major Dickie Head'.
It must have been this fella.

Sandhurst must have a bed of roses.

I used to go to school with a guy called Peter Bennett. His mother re-married and she asked the school to list him with his new step-father's surname of, Ennis.

So he would be known as P.....eter Ennis

Yeah I got that straight away but it was the way you originally said it - We have a friend called Mike Hunt - and so I asked what was special (about your C..t) to want to call someone after it.

I thought it was easy to get ...sorry.

Iona Baird

Her surname was pronounced B-aired but at school whenever we had a supply teacher they'd pronounce it Bed we'd laugh and you could see they wanted to too! I always felt sorry for Iona she was such a lovely girl but took so much stick!

Wasn't there a guy on TV called Dickie Bird? A sports commentator or something.

I once interviewed a man named Forest Hare. I found that hysterical. There was an American showjumper competing the other day named Rich Feller. Talk about nominative determinism!

I have almost passed urine reading this thread. It's fantastic!

And I know this is really cr*p but everytime the actor Timothy Olyphant appears on screen we all start singing in unison;

"Timothy Olyphant packed his trunk and said good-bye to the circus,..."

Told you it was cr*p but it makes us laugh

I remember years ago on the radio they were discussing funny names and the only one I remember being mentioned was (not sure of the spelling of this one but you'll get the gist) Ruby Duby Doo

e just thought of another one. WWE's Heath Slater. I always think Jerry Lawler is saying, "Heaps later."

Like:-

"Did that happen sraight away?"

"No, it happened heaps later!"



Sorry, I'm getting tired

I've always enjoyed Fenella Fudge, myself
Yes! I was waiting for somebody to mention her. I remember during a drive to Birmingham airport she popped up on the radio and everybody in the car thought it was the funniest thing ever.

Funniest thing I've heard all day
I once worked with Peter Hole, he always signed as Peter, never as just "P" Hole.

I recall a wall chart on a classroom wall at secondary school listing student names, including someone surnamed, 'Gugliel-Mucci,' which I thought was pretty strange, at the time, although I now know they would be Italian-descended, like the boy surnamned, 'Spadaccini,' which I thought odd at the time.
