Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Right, lets hear all those stupid names you've heard during your life. The ones that are real, but you've got to wonder why their owners don't change them.

    My best two:
    At the building where I work there is a "Miss S. Sucking", and the Person who had my phone number before me was a "Mr Jisum", I still keep getting telesales calls for him.
     
  2. You can't do much about your surname but parents can avoid giving their kid a bone first name which will just attract bullies.

    Little girl in my son's primary class: Annette Curtin
     
  3. i went to school with a kid named Wayne Kerr
    sad little fella was allways slightly uptight and had a bit of a chip on the shoulder about something.
    just WTF was his parents thinking? or were they so closeted they honestly didnt know?
     
  4. Similarly, a poor kid in my ACF regt was Wayne King.

    I have a rather unfortunate surname (no, I'm not going to tell you bunch of bastards what it is! :D ) but luckily my parents did their best with us children's Christian names.
     
  5. I'm just sooooooo not telling you about my name.
     
  6. Once met a guy called Richard Head.

    Lived up to his name as well :)
     
  7. It's not that bad Shrew.
     
  8. um. You don't know what my initials stand for. Trust me - IT IS.
     
  9. A friend's surname was (still is) Bates. When he was at school, he was called Master Bates. :?
     
  10. I know Richard Head, in fact an old colleague is now living with his ex. A while back I did a course in the West of England, and the chap in charge of the kit was called Dick Mussel
     
  11. When i was at secondary school there were sisters with the surname Meadows. Their first names were Poppy, Daisy and Rose.
     
  12. I once had a colleague called Head. His first name wasn't Richard, but he answered to Dick.
     
  13. A friend told me of the parents Mr and Mrs Peacock who named their son Drew.... honestly!
     
  14. One of my first girlfriends was called Fiona Crack and I once worked with a guy called Dick Bellringer and know an Asian couple called Patel who had the stupidity to call their son Hamish.
