Herb's Phunny Names

Have you ever met someone with a funny name? Maybe you even had to supress a laugh when you heard it!

(Imagine your reaction if you walked up to a bank teller and saw her name plate said Robin Hood!  I have had that experience!)

Sometime during the '90s, my friend and workmate, John Russell, and I decided to make a list of these kinds of names and we worked on it together through the '90s until I left Xerox in January 2000. In the years since then I've kept adding names while living and working in Florida. The list has continued to grow, and it is presented here. The only rules for placing a name on this list are...

  1. First names have to be "real" names (or initials, or titles) that one could expect to encounter in life, and
  2. Last names have to be actual names in a phone book (somewhere).
  3. The resulting name has to be funny to read.

For example, Rusty Wallace is a former driver in NASCAR's Winston Cup series, and Rick Carr is a fellow I knew while working at Xerox. Had fate intervened, today we could be cheering a racer named Rusty Carr on to victory!

So now, with no further adoo, I present Herb's Phunny Names!
