    these aren't rudey puns but a friend of mine went to school with someone called Autumn Forecast, and i also recently through work i had to speak with someone called James D Justice III, which is probably the most comic-book name i've ever heard.

    nothing as good as randy bumgardner, though.

    I love stories about parents giving their kids inappropriate names. I collect them.

    Like the New Zealand girl who got ward of court to change her name from Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii.

    Or the twins named Benson and Hedges.

    The child named after the location she was conceived: Number 16 Bus Shelter.

    And let's not forget Sex Fruit, Midnight Chardony, and Yeah Detroit.

    The Swedish parents who named their child Metallica.

    Any more examples would be welcome. This sort of thing entertains me.

    My unusual name hasn't affected me at all; in fact, it has helped me make friends and improve my confidence, especially since leaving school.

    I'd like to change my name to Ivor Biggun by deed poll, but I fear that it's been done too many times already.

    My sons went to nursery with someone called Harry Beaver

    And a friend taught a child called Winky Pubian which is my all-time favourite name

    And i taught a Challenge, who certainly was.

    In one of my friend's uni department, they have a technician called Sandy Beaver. I thought that was quite impressive.
