There was a lad who was a couple of years below me at school who was called Piers Mycock, though I believe he changed his name at the first opportunity once he left school.

Always had to laugh at a guy called Willie Aitken at my old work. Seriously, why didn't he call himself Bill or just plain William?

Also remember someone telling me about the Ness brothers at his school... Their first names? Peter and Andrew. And if you still can't work it out, the fun was in putting their first initials and last names together.

There's a guy who I used to work with who's second name was Ravey.

Not very funny unless you have the first name like him of David
(davey ravey)

There's also an Irish horse racing pundit called Willie stroker. I think if you google image his name it comes up with his pic with his name underneath.

As a postie I see loads of surnames. The best one was one I saw a few months ago.

The name on the letter was for a Mrs Pou Tang. I near fell down wi laughter.

Had a mate at school with the second name of Bates.

If you think back to what "title" letters/bank statements generally use when addressed to a young gent, you'll get the humour.

The IT department at my work have rigged it (well that's my theory) so that my "identifier" for logging into my PC and - more importantly - to appear on the coversheet of any documents I print out is DickPe01.

Much mirth for anyone who picks up one of my print-outs before I can get to it!!! :grr::greengrin

And a girl at my old work in Coatbridge went to school with the fantastically named Pocahontas McGlinchey.

I had two colleagues, respectively the Rev. Balls and the Rev. Twaddle.

Don't know if they talked like their names, though.... :wink:

Drinkwater is a fairly common name throughout Lancashire. Even if it wasn't, it would still be deeply unfunny, like pretty much every post on this thread.

The late Frank Graham's sister is Mrs Flucker, and there's a Flucker that used to play for Hibs.

The Flucker had a fairly high scoring rate too. :agree:

I think her sister Helen went to my school - was always giving me chinese burns.

Has anyone else had a burn that felt like Helen Mycock?

Not a surname, but there are a lot of people in Brittany called Erwan (I wouldn't have thought Field Marshal Rommel would be so popular here).

Anyway, here's the myspace page of a guy I know.

Dunno if it's unfortunate or funny, or both, but the head of addiction services in Fife is a Dr. Cockayne.
