I worked part-time on the check-out of a large supermarket when my kids were young, and I remember this one guy who I used to serve at least once a week; he only ever bought alcohol, mainly vodka and beer... he'd always pay by credit card, and I've never forgotten his name, even though it was nearly twenty years ago... it was Terence Tipple! :)

Hi all,
Crazy names? Here's a list of some Dutch surnames, and their literal translations, that have been around since the early 1800's.

Naaktgeboren (Born naked)
Weltevreden (Am satisfied)
Boterhoofd (Butter head)
Platvoet (Flat foot)
Suikerbuik (Sugar belly)
Scheefnek (Crooked neck)
Zeldenthuis (Rarely at home)
Spring in 't veld (Jump in the field)
Nooitgedacht (Never thought of it)
Vanhetzelfde (From the same)
Niemandsverdriet (Nobodies sadness)
Zonderkop (Without a head)

Why such screwy names? France had occupied the Netherlands in the early 1800's and made it mandatory for the common folk to choose surnames. The Dutch didn't take this law serious and didn't think that France would much longer be occupying their country, but had to comply. The French did leave, however, the Dutch government maintained the use of surnames. :-)

I worked for security for General Motors some years back, and we had a book that had a list of every employee that worked in the plant. Here is a list of some of the names in the book. (No lie!) James Woods, Chuck Norris, Michael Jackson, Joe Piscopo (remember that guy!) and my all time favorite Bu Hu. The real kicker was that if somebody needed to get in touch with those people on the line, they would call us, then we would have to call them over the PA system and tell them to call down to us so we could relay the message to them. I had the distinct honor of telling Chuck Norris to call someone in another department. Not even three seconds later, all the phone lines were abuzz with people asking me "Did you just say Chuck Norris?" Some of the higher ups at the plant even called down to tell me that I could get in serious trouble for playing on the PA! My supervisor had to show one of them his name in the employee listing :)

What about Michael Jackson's kid named Blanket... :) No wonder he was know as wacko.

Now I thought that Michael Hunt (just call him Mike) would have been on the list a lot earlier than this. For those who know what I am talking about will get it. Then again, I most probably will for posting this.

Certainly we can't forget the names of Frank Zappa's four kids. Their names were Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen. :) What a hoot! What person in their right mind would name their children like that? ...then again, the 'The Man In Black's' father called HIM 'Sue.' Ahem.

Reminds me of an OLD joke about how Chinese name their babies. Would probably be considered offensive now.
