I remember Dweezil and Moon Unit! I always felt sorry for kids whose parents would do that to them. Then, later, I saw Dweezil in a small movie roll, can't remember which it was, and though he did a fair job of acting, I felt even more sorry for him!

Worked in enrollment at a tech school many years ago. Real names:
Hai Ho (pronounced Hi Ho). Every time he would come in, his advisor would start humming the Snow White song. Just slayed me back then. :lol:

The oriental chick that married an Italian: Phung Tortorelli

Cash Register, no middle name.

But the absolute best (and most horrifying) was one of the women who worked in another department. She was pregnant and they couldn't decide on what to name the baby. Her married surname was Dick. (You can already guess where this is going.) Couple of weeks after the baby waa born, she stopped by to show off the young 'un & tell us the name. Caressa Marie. My mouth fell open.

Honey...you can NOT name that baby that.

Why not? It's so PRETTY!

Yes. Very pretty. Now take out the middle name & say only the first & last name together.

Needless to say, she was horrified. They had to officially change that poor child's name since the birth certificate was already done. Honest-to-goodness true story. :lol:

With all three of our kids, I tried names out every which way to make sure they couldn't be turned into something like that. My maiden name was Fales, and we got all kinds of grief in school with that last name -- even though we were all smart and did pretty well in school. Kids just say stupid stuff. And I saw other kids taking grief for their names. I am strongly of the opinion that children ought to be raised at home and not associate with other children until they have all attained the age of reason, LOL! (Because most of them only act like that when they are in packs.)

Dr. Duckles took my cousin's appendix out. All of us had a great time with his name! We then asked if his first name was Donald and it was!
My other name story includes a doctor too. When my daughter injured her hand, she has to see a specialist- and his name was Dr. Mitten. Too funny!
