What's In a Name?

Ok, a little humor to hold us over. I come in contact with many many people on a daily basis. Because of that, I can't help but notice interesting names as I come across them. I fall into that category, too, since while on headcount detail 2 soldiers noticed my name as I sat near the door counting people. Clever folks, nonetheless, but good for a quick chuckle. I thought I would share just a few interesting names that I have come across. These are real names. Honest.

1. SPC Lovelady - a man. not very poignant in its humor but interesting.
2. PFC Begay - I hope that's not an order. No relation to #3.
3. Chief Buttram - no kidding. I am sure he pronounces it "Buh - trum".
4. CPT Kirk - I wouldn't lie. Tell me he's not sick of the reference by now.

and lastly, the name that motivated me for this post. I just saw tonight at supper in the DFAC. It says it all....

5. SGT Darnbush - there ya have it! Like you haven't said it yourself before.

Know any other real names that are this interesting? Post them please.

The obvious would be my last name and I'm so over that, I'm not even going there. Patrick had a few teachers who's names were just hilarious:

Frank Gay...his middle name is LEE and he's the football coach
but best of all was Mrs. Boob (how she made it all these years as a teacher, I'll never know!

My son's teacher's name is Mrs. Hoar. She pronounces like boar with an H. The kids in her class are too young to understand.

My maiden name was pronounced 'hayman', but the lovely boys I went to school with mis-pronounced it as 'hymen'. Yeah, that was fun for a teenage girl. :(

i grew up in a small news travels fast.

2nd day of school in 8th grade, we all heard that there was a new kid, named peter shaver. so everyone poked their heads out of the doors as he walked down the 8th grade hall with everyone giggling. it had to be an awful day for him. but its kinda funny and memorable. he turned out to be a fairly nice guy.
