View Full Version : Great/funny fake names???
08-22-2001, 09:21 PM
My last name is pronounced EXACTLY like it is spelled.
However, when we give our name to the hostess at a restaurant/event etc. they ALWAYS totally butcher it while announcing it over the loudspeaker.
So instead of signing in as "Smith" I was hoping you guys could give me some ideas along the line of
Something that would be hilarious over the loudspeaker.
What can I say? We get bored easily........ :)

Bubble Girl, that is a GOOD ONE!! LOL
I had to say it 3 times to "get it" !!
08-22-2001, 10:04 PM
This is just another name for a "Prank the Bartender" thread.
08-22-2001, 10:10 PM
Damn, someone get Creaky in here. We were chatting a while ago and she knew this name that was funny as hell.
Of course, I forgot it though.
08-22-2001, 10:15 PM
Well, there's always the ever-popular Phil McCracken.
Or the more-vulgar and less funny Buster Hyman.
Are you guys all crazy?
There can be only one.

Can't forget the classics
Then of course I actually know someone named Richard Wacker.
Yes, he goes by "Dick". He seems to take a perverse pride in it.
08-22-2001, 11:34 PM
You could be my Russian friend, Oliver Klosov.
Ditto on Ema Nymton. I must be too tired.
I went to a school called Chabot, and pronounced "sha-beau".
Whenever someone asks how you spell that, we always said "just like it sounds". :D

I've always been fond of Howie Feltersnatch.
Clint Oriss is fun too, specially when it's prefixed with "Mister"
08-23-2001, 08:31 AM
Well, it lacks the hormone appeal of most of the others given so far, but a friend claims that when going out to eat with buddies he will often give his last name as "Donner" just for the thrill of hearing them annonce "Donner party ... your table is ready."
08-23-2001, 08:44 AM
Ben Dover and C. Howett Fields (thanks, Cecil :))
And here's to all the Dick Johnsons of the world.
08-23-2001, 08:58 AM
Ema Nymton - read it backwards.
08-23-2001, 09:08 AM
when leaving my name with the hostess at a restaurant, I sometimes tell them my last name is "Wilde, like the poet". Later, over the loudspeaker, the entire bar hears... "Wilde party, your table is ready".
I'm sooooo original. :rolleyes:

Once had to send a laptop back to the manufacturer for repairs for a customer. I put his name in the return address protion of the shipping and at first thought it was a fake name.
My friend Katherine's mom was a nurse. They absolutely refused to page her to another floor of the hospital.
Anita Coffin was her name.

Sharon Peters (Classic, we actually got our vice prinipal in middle school to announce it was Sharon's birthday at lunch one time. We had to apologize to everyone, but took the opportunity to say "Sharon Peters" yet again in front of half the student body...)
08-23-2001, 01:27 PM
Obviously, Sue Duhnym.
08-23-2001, 01:27 PM
Years ago, I worked with a man whose last name was Breast. He told everyone his wife's name was Ophelia and his name was Felcher.

Our morning radio show here actually called a store and had Harry Paratestes paged. Twice. Got it all on tape, over the phone. They are playing it back continually now in commercials for the morning show.

I saw Mike Hunt mentioned...another variation is:
My school yearbook staff put that in as a joke lastyear.

I heard in the news about an American (doctor?) who wanted to begin efforts on a human cloning experiment. This was not long after the news of Dolly the sheep was broken.
The guy's name? Richard Seed.
Think about it.

Justin K. C. (or Casey) Hollers
Forgot the joke associated with it, though. Something about parents using him as a babysitter. I'm sure someone else can think of something better.

When I was in junior high there was a raffle and a kid put in the name Ben Dover. It was so awesome, because by some stroke of luck, this kid WON!!! The poor Vice-Principle had no idea what he had just said in front of the entire class while he was announcing winners to come up to the stage, so of course he read it multiple time and the hilarity ensued.

Learn to pronounce a mandarin name properly. Whenever you give your name, make sure they know how to pronounce it. It they can't get the hang of it, pretend to become very angry.
08-25-2001, 06:13 AM
Ima ______ (insert whatever you are)
______ (insert first name) Sux
or, my favorite nickname for an obnoxious boy in my class,
P.S. Max, if you think getting an american to say a mandarin name is tough, try getting one to say your TAIWANESE name. or get a chinese to say your english name. it's the sort of thing which would lead you to bang your head on a brick wall... trust me. i've been there.
08-25-2001, 01:34 PM
I subscibed to Men's Health one time under the name: Herbert J. McBooby.
Also from the Simpsons: Busty St. Clair, Hooty McBooby, Chesty Laroo, and Max Power (from a hairdryer.)
Stu Pidass: This is my registered name on a lot of internet services
Jack Kingoff: Speaks for itself
Whore O. Matic: Not that witty, but it's hilarious when I register for something on the web and then, even after specifically asking not to, I get spam saying "Matic family reuinion!" or "Important free stuff for Whore O. Matic!" It makes the Spam a lot easier to tolerate.
Shifty McCrapFace: No hidden meaning, it's just a funny name to say out loud.

I remember reading that the movie star Jim Carrey checked into a NY hotel under the name "Picollo Thunderbutt."
I worked with a guy named "Justin Thyme" (pronounced Justin Time).
I was a passenger in a car when we got rear ended at an intersection. Behind the offender was an unmarked squad car with plain-clothes detectives. They rushed to our door and identified themselves as Detective Jones and Detective Smith (or something), to which the driver of our car said "Ya, and I'm Dick Tracy." Which is his real name. I thought we were going to get shot.
Often I sign in with the hostess at a restaurant as "Christ, Jesus H., party of 13."
I used to have a shirt with a phony name on it's back: Little Ricky Alphonzo del Remos Gonzales, Jr., and on the front was "Juan Tough Dude."
08-27-2001, 07:40 AM
I worked with a guy who knew someone named Dick Passwater.
My favorite fake name is the entertainment package dreamed up by S. J. Perelman: Chalky Aftertaste and his Musical Poltroons.
I don't know why, but it really cracks me up.
08-28-2001, 12:41 AM
I hope my friend never sees this, cuz it's his REAL name: Kannagassabapathy (Kah'-Nuh-Goss'-uh-BOP'-uh-thee) Rikki Ratnarajah...and I'm Christopher.
08-28-2001, 04:17 PM
I always use Martin Van Buren as a fake name, you'd be surprised how few people recognize it.

Oh, and the guy who performed my husband's vasectomy was Dr. Richard Paine (and yes, he went by Dick)...and the one who did the vasectomy reversal was Dr. Cockburn (pronounced coburn).
I can't vouch for Paine, but Cockburn, at least, has a great sense of humor. :)

I think the name we were discussing was Ozella Nazelrod.
Man, that just has to be the funniest name I have ever heard.

I once registered illicitly in a Finnish hotel as Simon Templar.
Upon checking my name the clerk announced "ahhh..welcome back Mr. Templar ...good to have you with us again"
Sheesh! Cant even get a pseudenom right.
For thoose who dont know Simon Templar was the name of the character played by Rodger Moore in "The Saint".
I don't know if'n he's still there butt the Waco phonebook used to list a guy named Henauder Titzoff. He also chewed our ass when we called to verify.

how 'bout "DR.Dick Burns" .....
My last name is tough too. Mostly I give my dad's first name, Craig.
It's familiar enough that I won't miss it when they say it.
09-07-2001, 08:15 PM
My mother swears she went to school with a girl named Ophelia Rasse.
And, honestly, I went to college with a guy named Dick Blewitt.
I have also worked with a Grant Dumbell and a Dick Tracey.

The "Wongs" when we go for chinese,
"Elmer" at Fuddrucker's,
Dundee at Outback,
Angus at Steak and Ale,
Ahab or Gorton at Red Lobster,
Bubba at Cracker Barrel.
When we eat at new places it's a game to see who can think up the best name to leave. Recently a pizza place opened up near our home with our real last name. We phoned in an order and they asked our name, when told the clerk didn't believe him. We found it rather ironic that the one time we use our real name, we had to show identification to prove it.
