Funny Name Alert

Lets talk about funny names. I mean real names of real people, you have encountered.
I worked for an alarm company at one time and when things got slow we would flip through our rolladex of subscribers and contacts searching for funny names.

The best ones I have ever found were;
Suzy Clapsaddle,
Harry Dick.

What names make you giggle?

I’m out of my mind, but,

There’s a SPEC racecar driver named Dick Trickle. . .

Yer pal,

I really hope the following people don’t look at this message board.

There was a girl who attended my grade school for a year or two. Her name was Krystal Monument. I really hope she has changed her name.

Also, in our local phone book, my friend and I found a listing for a Lyle P. Lilicrap. We prank called him until he unlisted his number.

Hey, we were young and it was before caller ID.

Ben Dibble is a buddy of my cousin’s.

A guy I knew in high school was Robert Dick (say it fast).

I’ve come across several interesting names working at the library:

Christian B. Smart

Dear Ayesha:
In my younger days, I once tried to lay a girl called Candy Kane – that was her real name, I kid you not.
In high school, I knew a cat named Dave Cave.
When I lived in another county, there were many people with the surname Hunsucker. That one always cracked me up.

My high school civics teacher’s name was Richard D. Dick.

I used to book travel for a Robert Dinkfelter.

I’ll get the cliche out of the way first. I did know a guy named Richard Head in HS. The ribbing was perpetual and, in his case, he responded well and was quite an outgoing guy.

I know two people named John John (father and son).

I have a friend who’s last name is a pretty common English name, but in keeping w/a family tradition that extends from his grandfather to his eldest son, his first name is Z and his middle name is W.

Anyone have an Austin phone book? Henador Titzoff was in there for years.

Dr. Fink is a pediatrician in Greeley, Colorado.
– Sylence

Congressman Richard Swett of Connnecticut. Goes by Dick.

At my high school, one of the administrator went by Kitty. Her last name was Katz. Not kidding.

I still think Yogi Berra is a pretty funny name, although I know Yogi Bear was named after Yogi Berra.

There’s a realtor here in Denver named Dick Berst. He’s got a few bus-bench ads on my way to work.

“On the edge of sleep, I awoke to a sun so bright…”

My uncle told me he once made a prank calls to every Lipschitz in the phone book, saying, “If your lip shits, does your asshole whistle?”

Went to school with a couple of girls named…Megan Mustard and Pearl Pepper
Also we have a philanthropist here named Harry Hole

We are, each of us angels with only one wing;
and we can only fly by
embracing one another

My dad is a letter carrier. There’s a person on his route named ‘A. Maggot’

I’ve seen the mailbox and letters myself.

My middle name is kind of funny-ish.

But not really.


“To me, socks are like sex. Tons of it about, and I don’t seem to get any.”

The Legend Of PigeonMan

I once worked for Sam Dick Industries in Seattle. Everybody called the old man who owned the company by his first name.

I was once very much in love with a girl named Lisa Whynot. I seldom argued with her.

In the class of actual strange names, I met a girl whose niece was named INXS. Not initials, that was her first name.

Hippie names can be good. Novalotus Merry is in my buddy’s vet class. I hear she’s a babe.

“You can’t tell me what sucks!” - Beavis, a true Objectivist

Micheal Hunt. Went by Mike.

‘They couldn’t hit an Elephant from this dist…!’

I swear to God that I went to school with someone name Anita Boner.
Supposedly pronounced “Bone-Are,” but you know how cruel kids can be

A friend from work used to laugh about funny names we ran across. Some of our favorites:

William McWeeney (went by Willie)
Betty Buffalo
Maximum Payne

In the New Orleans phonebook years ago: Boonrut Tantriphal
