What was Frank thinking? At least the Guatemalans were ignorant. He doesn't have a good excuse. Well...cocaine is a hell of a drug...

There's a person on Bloomberg named Anil Bangar which has too be one of the worst names ever, unless you're a porn star. There was also a Ford Dealership in New Orleans owned by Dick Bohn.

[quote=Piobaire;1060468]There was a Nicholas Cage SNL skit where he was trying to think of a good name for his baby with his expectant wife. His name was pronounced "Os-wee-pay" Spelled Asswipe.QUOTE]

I remember that skitch too, mid 1990's, if I recall correctly. But I think it might have been Dana Carvey.

Come kindergarten, Nancy O'Dell's daughter is going to have a lot of correcting to do.

Disagree-- it's a good name for a Southern girl. I have a colleague who used to be Ashby Jennings, and I always sort of regretted that she changed it after getting married.

My official birth certificate name is Jimmy. My parents were unaware that President Carter's real first name was James.

a popular israeli name is nimrod. its pronounced a little bit different in hebrew, but when they come to north america, it aint fun for them.
post #55 of 334
Nimrod means something along the lines of master hunter. It's, AFAIK, a biblical name with odd connotations here. And honestly, do you think Frank Zappa would name his daughter and sons normally?

Good word! I did not know it....

I knew two sisters named Tuesday and Friday Knight. Not awful but then again... depends on the connotations. I've always heard of people named Orangejello and Lemonjello, but haven't met any... Maybe it's an urban myth? Also, I sorta like Moon Unit Zappa's name. Call me insane.

LMAO. It took a few seconds to click. I know one Indian guy named Faqir (pronounced FAH-KEER.) On the first day of school, the teacher horribly mispronounced his name, ever since then he's went by Fred. That and once when I worked as a temp doing some data entry in university, I came across a guy named Harry Wang.
post #59 of 334
hahaha @ Faqir becoming Fred and Harry Wang. I feel worse for Harry Wang though I think.

Krispy cock, Droo-Peacock...ahhhh hilarity it would have to depend on how the speaker was linking the two words up. Actually no nevermind either way you say that shit out loud its funny as balls.

Don't forget her brothers Dweezil and Ahmet (ok, that's not a bad name) and her sister Diva. Moon has a daughter Mathilda Plum. Dweezil is dad to Zola Frank.
