    Post Really Strange Names

    What are some strange names you've heard of, or people you knew/know with names that are strange (to you).
    I'd like to keep this to the names of white people. I must admit, if I made this an "all races strange names thread" - it'd last forever.
    Strange like Lemonjello. (la-mon-ja-lo). Okay so that wasn't a white one, but that was to give you an example.
    Not names like the one of a girl I went to school with : Kipperly. Different, yes, but not too absurd.

    From my own family tree:
    Ray Beam
    Lettice Stone
    mtDNA - H_7_a (ftDNA) H_7_a_1 (23andme)
    AbDNA - 100% Eur. 23andme: 99.99% Eur., .01% Af.
    23andme: 99.73% European, .27% African
    23andme V3 update awaiting use, got a kit for mom too.

    Re: Really Strange Names

    Kipperly? Sounds a bit fishy

    Rock Stars tend to give their kids wacko names.

    David Bowie's son is Zowie Bowie

    Marc Bolan called his son, Rolan Bolan

    Best of all is Frank Zappa who called his son Dweezil, and his daughter - Moon Unit

    in my high school there was a southern italian guy called Tonino Latino LOL


    I worked in a call center and we made calls in every italian town so i had the chance to seenso many weird names.
    Me and some of my coworkers were used to schedule callbacks to each others and write funny coments on the note fields about the customers' name
    One of the customer was called "Libero Pensiero" = "Free thinking"Pensiero was the family name i guess and the poor guy's parents were probably new hippie or something :S

    "E tutti si scandalizzano quando sentono dire: quel tale tipo di mammifero o di uccello ormai è sparito dalla faccia della terra, non lo vedremo più; è una grave perdita. Certo, si tratta di gravissime perdite.
    Ma non sarebbe forse più grave se sparisse una comunità umana?? --Bruno Salvadori

    Seven pictures of northern European males and seven pictures of northern African males were presented randomly via a computer screen to 82 Italian female undergraduates of the University of Padua, Italy.
    Each picture depicted a full frontal face with a neutral facial expression. Participants were asked to classify each picture as either northern Italian or southern Italian.
    On average, the seven pictures depicting northern Europeans were classified as northern Italians 81% of the time. The seven pictures depicting northern Africans were classified as southern Italians 83%
    of the time.

    I once had a Dentist.........Dr Death.......his real name not his reputation
    Politics is where we send the mediocre people so they can feel vaguely consequential and when they say ''His Excellency or The Honourable Minister", They really mean "This Prick here"

    Post Re: Really Strange Names

    i'll just state the most strange names i found when i went to Brazil...

    at the hotel, there was a boy called Usnavy (probably related to U.S. Navy)..

    then, i saw the strangest of all ... Um Dois Três de Oliveira Quatro (something like One Two Three of Oliveira Four)... (and yes, they are white... probably their parents are just stupid...)

    In Icelandic 'Albert' means 'completely naked'.



    Ever heard of the book 'How to Make Friends' by I. Malone?
    the characters do not make the genus, but the genus gives the characters -- Linnaeus

    Johnny Depp's surname sounds silly for Germans. In German "Depp" means "idiot", "fool".
