There was a girl in one of my classes last year named Sarah Connor. She would have been born some time between the first and second movies.

How the fuck did I forget Miro Satan? Dammit.

re: Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink

I seem to remember playing FIFA 2006 or some such thing (05 maybe) and I guess EA did not at the time have tiny-letter technology. The name on his jersey in the game was "Vennegoor of H." And when he first signed with Celtic, I don't think they had tiny-letter technology, either. Behold the epic wraparound!

Man, I wish I could find a pic of this guy's jersey. I remember seeing it when he still played, it was amusing.

I reckon Tongans have the best names. Ipolito Fenukitau, for instance, or Fuifui Moimoi.

My mom went to school with a Jekyll Ann Hyde.  Apparently  she loved it and went by Jekyll Ann so people would know the joke.  You can find her all over the internet in sites talking about unusual names.

I also know a man who owns in a music store in my hometown named Ken Fette.

Poor Chad K. has his own name story on these boards..

But not as bad as this.

I fooled around/was best friends with an Joseph Edemeka Okon, his father's name was Marquis Okon and his brother's name was Alex Ambonisye Okon. His father considered their 'real' names to be their middle names so that's what he called them.

I love that he has this three letter first name to go along with that epic last name.

Also.

I just remembered. Jarome Iginla's full name:

Back when I worked in a call centre I had a list of the people with awesome names with whom I spoke. On this list were such gems as Nimrod Oz and Virgina Vasquez. There were also slightly amusing but pretty common names like Michael Jackson or Robert Smith but they didn't make me laugh like the others.

The best name I ever saw was Caleb Womble. He was in the credits of a terrible T.V. show that I was watching several years ago, but I'm not going to tell you which one because it is my secret shame.

Caleb is a wicked cool name.

My mother works as a labor and delivery nurse and has had two babies and they were named L-a and L-ea. They weren't related.
Can you pronounce that?

EDIT: hmm. apparently it's becoming common now.

I used to work in a call center (a popular job here, it seems) and the best name I remember was a Mr. Richard Toy.

Dick Toy.  He was actually quite nice, compared to most callers.

when i worked at a call center last year i called and spoke to someone named mr. gubbles. he was a farmer. i had been talking to someone right before he picked up the phone so i didn't see his name on the computer screen and had absolutely no time to mentally prepare to deal with his ridiculous name. he was a very serious man. by the end of the call tears were literally streaming down my face because i was trying so hard not to laugh or do anything stupid every time i said his name. can you say "mr. gubbles" out loud without laughing? it's really hard.

Man, I keep trying to do this and I just can't.

I cannot say Mr. Gubbles seriously.

It is the name for a goldfish.
