Name and shame

The BBC News website has been running a small feature inspired by the death of Robert Moog, the man who invented the synthesiser. It's pronounced "Mogue" (rhymes with "vogue"), apparently. Readers were asked to write in with their own experiences of difficulties with their names, which led to this which I found today.

Personal favourites are number seven, and number twenty. Enjoy.

I enjoyed #17. I saw this recently and it fits in perfectly with this post:

I believe the middle name "Scrotum Bag" trumps everyone:)

I find the name Lowri highly amusing, in an odd sort of way.

Himself used to work with a bloke called Dan. Not so bad, until you learned that his real name was Dana, and since their ex-boss couldn't get his head around a bloke being called Dana (he was Canadian. Not the boss, the bloke called Dan), that he introduced him to everyone as Dan. It was only as he was leaving, 3 years later that he mentioned that his name wasn't actually Dan.
