I think 'Travis Tritt' has to be one of the stupidest names ever

I did work with a guy in Glens Falls called 'Casey Jones' I asked him if his parents were train fans and he had no idea what I was talking about ?

Were these two black kids? If so, I've heard this story quite a few times before...

And here, too.

One of the posters on the website you quote claims that he does 'know ...a girl named Senta whose name was inspired by the word "placenta"'.

What utter crap. Clearly she was named after The Flying Dutchman's girlfriend...

Zain Verjee (female)
Csaba Csere (male)
Barack Obama
Besa Tafilaj
Tempestt Bledsoe
Dick Butkis
Tahmoh Penikett
Dick Schnot (my favourite!)

And btw how come Americans have so much difficulty saying and spelling a simple one syllable name like Jubb and seemingly no problem with Polish, Serbo-Croat, German names?
I have a buddy in Sweden called ......... TURD
and a buddy in Scotland called ....... Willie Muffit

Has anyone ever noticed that Robert Mugabe backwards is Trebor Ebagum ?

When I was a schoolboy there was some poor sod with the last name of Lillycrap. He just made it through with his sanity intact.

Quick name joke:

A North American Indian father is asked by his little girl why her newborn brother had been called "Strong Cloud". "Because that's the first thing I saw when I looked out of the teepee after his birth". He ponders for a second, and then enquires "Anyway, why do you ask, Two Dogs Fucking?"
