Hehe, one of my friends was Richard Simmons – and yes, he was born AFTER Richard Simmons became famous so his parents knew what they were doing.

My brother had a friend named Tyler Beiler.  He was absolutely adorable in 3rd grade too — nerdy glasses, funny, sweet little guy… aww…

There was a kid that went to my elementary school who’s name was Happy. He was new to the country so I think he (or his parents) just picked a word they knew in English and called it good. I thought that was pretty adorable.

My neighbour was an ESL teacher and she used to help new students pick out their Canadian names (if they were choosing to change their name). One student really liked the name “Semen” because it was very soft sounding and sort of rolled off the tongue. She had to work really hard to convince the kid it was not an appropriate name, but he was very young (like 6 or 7) so she couldn’t really tell him why. Oh goodness. His name is probably Chris or something now 😉

Oh and I also know a family who’s last name is Ratz (which is actually pronounced Rots, but you can imagine it always gets pronounced Rats). The father is Pat, the eldest son is Mat, and the youngest son is Pat Jr. Apparently they like rhyming.

My cousin is Thomas Thompson.  I also had an old coworker who was Sue Soo, and apparently her maiden name was Siu (which was also pronounced Soo)…  Had another old coworker named Ham, and I had said something about his name to one of my friends and she said, “OMG I have a coworker named Bread!”  We cracked up.

Ok – I definitely laughed at the title of this thread (LOVE that movie!).

A lady at church when I was younger was named Rose Rose, which I always found strange.  Her husband’s last name was the same as her first name!

My fiance’s dad’s name is pronounced “Frank Shank.” LOL. Obviously, the last name (and my future last name, huzzah!) is spelled differently…but still. It’s hilarious.

Another good one… My grandparents named their 4 children so they all had the initials JDG (Duggars anyone?) My dad John married Gina (starts with a G, but is a J sound). The only 2 cousins I have on that side of the family both start with the letter J, my brother’s name starts with the letter J, OMG my DOG’s name even starts with the letter J. My dad’s sister (starts with a J) just married somone whose name starts with the letter J and now I am marrying someone whose name starts with the letter J. And there is me… Tina… no J sound at all.

Wow.
