Think Before You Name

Well, when I'm doing data entry I need some way to entertain myself.

*Bony Peace, III. I can hear the schoolyard taunts now: "Hey Bony, can we get a piece of you? Ha ha haaa!" And they inflicted this on three generations?

*Clermont Plantation. "Where is this?" "No, who." "The Plantation is a who?"

*Joni Vanderslide. "Och, Joni, I vander slide."

*Steve Credito. Sounds like a magician.

*Trap Place. "Hey, wanna come back to my place? On Trap Place?"

*Tubeville. Never been to Tubeville. Does Joni Vanderslide live there?

Can we assume that, for sake of legality/confidentiality/to stave off the law suit, you at least slightly altered these names here?

The worst name I've ever heard of yet was Athole ~ it's a woman's name. I just Googled it and the results are quite odd. Some of my favourites are:

The Duke of Ahole's Nurse
The Athole Collection of Scottish Dance Music
Athole's Bed and Bath

She would have been eaten alive at my school.

Sometimes the odd name is done by accident. My youngest son's name, if you take the initials of his first and middle name and add it to the last name becomes:

B A Friend (and the name of Friend has it's own problems).

This didn't hit me until about six months after his birth.

Darlene, somehow it doesn't surprise me that you attended a school of cannibals.

In my job, I frequently run across really weird, funny names. Like "Jibpoot" (last name).

Athole-- it's a Scottish name and it sounds like apple only A-thol.

There's a last name around here that's Crapohl, but it's CRAY-pole, not crap hole. LOL

Have a great day!

I once read, "How to Be An Insurance Salesman," by Justin Case.

Moving from human to fish, "crappie" is pronounced "croppie" everywhere, but in Kentucky, we've taken the additional step of actually changing the spelling of our "crappies" to "croppie".

See, our "crappie" don't stink.
