Still haven't met a Phil Macavity yet though. :(

whilst attending a wedding reception my wife and I were first to arrive at our designated table.I had a look around at the other name cards on the table and to my delight discovered I would be sitting next to a Mr Ivor Organ.
Hand on heart it's the God's honest.

Lot's..A wedding once the brides name became Tess nicol (testicle).

A poor poor baby called Krypto..As in superman WTF!!

And tonight was my last training session at derby so we went to the pub afterwards. One of the girls got there much earlier than everyone else and she was still in her derby gear...fence net tights, spankies and a Tshirt with Rhi-Load wrote on the back.

Anyway she was pleased when we eventually turned up as some guys had thought she was a prostitute! It just brought a whole new meaning to her derby name Rhi-load!! :o

There is someone at work called Tasmin Watts which isn't funny but our work emails are our initial then surname so her's is [email protected] - which I found rather funny (and unfortunate)! :rofl:

I went to school with a girl with the surname Pudephatt which always seemed slightly amusing as she was on the big side, she was very good-natured though and I don't think anyone made fun of her.

My brother worked with someone called Mr. Ketlon, which I still think of when i offer to put the kettle on.

Similar thing, at a client I worked at there was a guy called Kim Wan. He was having a problem one day and asked me to help. His Windows logon name popped up - wank! I think he was honestly completely unaware it had another meaning...maybe the people in IT were too, but I doubt it! :lol:

In my old job we had a patient called Hazel Urine and another called Dick Smallbone. A friend of mine had a vasectomy done by a urologist called Dr Hackitt. My neice's neurosurgeon was Dr Brain and the coroner in my hometown was at one time Dr Death (he pronounced it "deeth")

I had a marine biology lecturer called Dr Fish. When I had abandoned that career and was at uni studying for a second time we had to do clinical practice. My first patient was called Krystal Mayes. I have also seen patients with the first name Candida (medical term for thrush), a Mrs A Chicken and also a Carol Christmas.

Not so much funny, as unpronounceable in English, I have to deal with people who's surnames range from Ng and Pp to some of the gigantic Sri Lankan ones, universally known in the company as Mr Alphabets.


I also worked with a Vietnamese guy in the UK who's name was...... Wallace Arnold.
He decided he needed a more English name and had chosen the first one that took his fancy... off the side of a coach !!

My friend has facebook friends from school called Rachel Sole (R Sole) and Annette Curtin! The latter makes me laugh every time I see her comment on something :)
