Silly Names

Rose Bush etc etc

I used to work in an office with an RAF Squadron Leader...who's name was leader!

Squadron Leader Leader. You would hear him answering the phone and saying with a sigh..."No, I'm not joking."

Post your funny names here...preferably ones you actually know.

On French motorways they have rest areas called 'Aires' and the one that's called 'Aire de Wancourt' made us laugh...if you say it out loud.

Shona Baird. Maybe means nothing to you, but in west-of-Scotland vernacular it means to display one's ladygarden (showing a 'baird').

Ray Gunn. He's a police officer. I don't know if he is firearms trained, I'm scared to ask.

There are a whole load of pseudonyms that my musical friends and myself used for other recordings and performances while we were under contract with our own names (like John Lennon using Dr. Winston O'Boogie), but they probably don't count because we made them up to be funny.

I do have a friend who is a guitarist, though: Stuart Grant Gibson. His name appeared in the school register as Gibson SG.

For a while, there was a Mahboob Ali living in my building.

God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

There's a professional baseball player with the Milwaukee Brewers (well, probably won't be next season), first baseman, whose name is Prince Fielder.

The current Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales is called Lord Judge - that's his real surname.

I know the following link isn't strictly a person's name, but there was a UFO sighting in Brazil in 1996. The reason this one tickles me is because of what it's called:-

The Varginha Incident :haha:

The president of Turkmenistan is called Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov.

The leader of the Italian Northern League, quite possibly the next Prime Minister: Umberto Bossi.

American stock-car driver named Dick Trickle....
Suspect hospital-waiting-room cronies and alcohol was involved.

Nelly Furtado, whose name isn't funny to me intrinsically, but amuses(me) for the implication of her parents'
absolute lack of foresight.
Did they fail to notice(as every schoolmate from kindergarden through graduate school likely did)-
that her surname becomes furtaco, with only one letter substitution?

They then apelled her with a given name-choice worse(by tauntability standards)-than all but maybe Dottie, or Gertie or Habrous-Liseased.
Were they in a coma?

Or if spoonerizing is permitted, the 2010? American Idol runner-up becomes Tiscral Sowerbox.
