Did your parents not like you?

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.
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
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?
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.
Once met a guy called Richard Head.

Lived up to his name as well :)
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
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.

Oh aye just remembered my English Teacher was Mrs Behan.............yes you guessed it her husband was called Les.

There is a fellah in Bath answers to this monica!
I've taught a few unfortunates lumbered with dumb names over the years. Way back in the late sixties when I was training in Torquay I worked in a school where there were several sons from a family with a car mad father. The one I taight was called Ford, but there were older brothers Morris and Austin. Allegedly there was an even older brother called Vauxhall, but I do not know if that was true or a staff room wind-up. Inevitably also, a Stuart Hobbs, who had a brother Russell. More recently a Wayne John, who was doomed to have problems whenever he had to fill out a form requiring him to write his name, surname first. Also a child whose first name was Leah-Jet, I kid you not, poor kid was 12 before realising why people laughed at the name. Perhaps the most ludicrous was the Katie, as opposed to Catherine or Katherine, but whose name was spelt on the birth certificate as K'T.

Why do they do it?
