I know there are some interesting last names out there, and I'm wondering if you guys have any you can share. The reason I'm starting this thread is I actually came across someone a few days ago with the last name Hackmaster. I kid you not.

I knew a sailor named Sailor. He had a brother in the Marines.

Also met a corporal named Sargent... yeah, I'm sure boot camp was fun for him.

I went to high school with Michael C. Hunt. Nobody called him Mike.

Ima Hogg (http://www.famoustexans.com/imahogg.htm), despite her unfortunate name, was a very important and respected philanthropist in Houston, Texas. I believe there's a park there named after her.

I was talking to a high school counsler once who brought up a good friend of his at the community college I was going to be attending (I'm now at my second semester there) and I feel so sorry for her. Her name is "Lill Bytch". That last name is pronounced "bi-itch" (two syllables). Amazingly she actually does go by Lill and not Lillian.

My last name is Mistry .. and yes I've had my share of jokes about it.
But it's actually quite a popular surname in my ethnic group

My last name is Cupp. I've been called a lot of things. The worst is Ball, the best is Stanley.

I seriously know a guy named Jack Goff.

My cousin honestly saw a plaque in a church that was dedicated to Tess T. Cole.

An unliked substitute teacher in my High School was named "Jack Hoff". Mr. Hoff was from Jamaica, was mean, and nobody liked him, and he always wondered why the new kids laughed when they heard his name.

Watching him write his name on whiteboards was priceless.

Back to the Armed Forces, a classmates father was Major Minor. It has since changed.

My last name is Pittack, pronounce Pit-tack. My name is butchered all the time, going as far as Pit-lack, but some others would be Pit-tick, Pit-it, and the popular, ummmmm...how do you say your name? The name is German.

XD everyone know a person with a funny name...
Mines just boring, Lundborg..
Anyways.
I know a story about a person who got a offer on a newspaper.
She took it of coarse. After a few months she didnt get her newspaper.
She called the newspaper and asked why she didnt get it.
The person in the other end explained that she didnt get her paper because she lived on the unusual road Snoppvägen 3 (Cockroad 3) in Snoppsta (Like, hmm, Cocksta) and they assumed it was a joke.

Dunno if it's been mentioned or not, but for those of you who remember the old animated show "Rugrats," I always thought the name Dr. Lipschitz was funny.

If your lips ****, then what does your *** do?

I used to have a co-worker with the name of Eggs.

Not so funny for many people because that's in Switzerland where most people speak German, French, Italian or Roman. However, many people do speak English, and he used to state the spelling of his name by referring to the English word.

Another co-worker is called Bee but pronounces it as Bay.

had a maths teacher called Mr Cocking (tho the name sounds funny and like he is a perve...turns out he was and is now in prison! lol)

One of the best names of people i know was:

James Wane Keen, not surprisingly people laughed at that one.

There was a native-american that lived in our town named Peter Tenpound. You can imagine the merryment that ensued when kids found out how it was listed in the telephone directory :)

There was that guy trying out for American Idol a couple weeks ago - the one whose wife gave birth before he tried out - named Oliver Hyman.

My grandmother went to school on the reservation with a girl named Titi Rainwater.

I have my own weird family name but that's only because the US Government created it's current spelling in the 1850s during a census taking. Seems many of my backwater ancestors couldn't read or write, so it was up to the census-taker to determine how to spell the name.

I had a friend named Tony Duck who swore up and down that his first son would be named Donald and daughter Daphne.

Luckily, saner heads prevailed (namely, his wife's) and his kids have been spared these ignominies.
