I didn't expect such a huge response from my post about funny names the other day. I received an overwhelming number of name submissions. I was left wondering why all these men named Dick don't go by Richard or Rich instead? Especially if they have a last name that makes them the constant butt (pun intended) of jokes.
I can't list all the names you sent me, but here are several in no particular order.
Stormy and Wendy Weather (sisters)
Mona Lisa Smith
Bunny Hare (who had a brother Rabbit Hare, a reporter)
Mr. Bonar (a Middle School principal, can you imagine?!)
Dr. Wry (say quickly – opthamologist)
Happy Dicks (a neurosurgeon)
Dr. Hacker (seen for a cough)
Dr. Au (allergist/needles!)
Dr. Bracey (orthodontist)
Mrs. Butts (a teacher)
Mike Hunt (say quickly, repeat)
Beaver Liquors (a business, but worthy of mention)
Fu King (Chinese restaurant, Cooperstown, NY)
In addition, people submitted other name oddities. As an example, the surgeon who performed my first three post-car accident surgeries was named Thomas Thomas. What was his mom thinking?
Others you submitted:
Tracy & Tracy (first names of a married couple)
Leslie & Leslie (same)
Jean & Gene (same)
If I didn't include a name you sent in, I apologize. My fingers are worn out from typing!
I don't normally post on weekends, but tomorrow I will post the responses from a fellow blogger I recently interviewed.
On Monday I am going to be taking a humorous (!) look at male/female communication. Honestly, it is a wonder the two sexes ever communicate at all. According to an article I recently read, men read sexual desire into almost all female communication. If that's the case, I'm in big trouble with some of my male friends ….
Hmmm – maybe not so big? I'll have to take a better look. Ha! Just kidding!
Have a great weekend!
