Strange names.

I was watching the news earlier when they started interviewing a Dr. LOTZOF. This got me thinking. What's the strangest/funniest name you've heard? You don't need to know them, but the name must be real.

A friend of mine maintains to this day he knew a Hugh JARSOLL!

So, come on, think. You don't have to know them, but they must be real, and if anyone, and I mean ANYONE says DEADWOOD, they're in big trouble!!

There's a producer on Radio 4 called Jo (or Joe) King.

My mother, who didn't normally make things up, swore that she knew someone called Wylde. Her surname was Rose. Then she married Mr Bull.

At school in the 1940's the girl who sat next to me was named Dinah Mighte. She was really "explosive stuff", at only 11 !

They used to say "Dinah Might, but she never did". Not with me anyway!

And recently I met an American by the name of Justin Kase! True!

When I worked for a doctor's office a woman brought in her 2 sons for a checkup. Their names were Orangejello and Lemonjello. She actually told us that they were named for the medium in which they were conceived...

There was certainly an Adora Dick in Bath in the 70's. I believe she joined the police force. She had a brother Ivor and a sister Phyllis.
