    I occasionally see unusual names in the obituaries ... but it just wasn't trendy 60-100 years ago to name your kid something exotic.

    That is a strange one!

    I thought Moon Unit and Dweezil were strange enough for Frank Zappa's kids, but the latest arrival was saddled with Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen......how odd!

    I work with legal name changes and today I had a guy legally change his name to My Wang. Why would you want that?

    I went to school with a Donald Duck.
    I had a student named Chevy Van Pickup.

    I had to have my windshield replaced once and the technician's name on the receipt was Ben Dover.

    As a substitute teacher I would often send a blank sheet of paper around the classroom for the students to sign their names for attendance. Of course, being teenagers, a few wiseguys would write in some fictitious names like Ben Gay, Dick Hertz, Mike Hunt, etc. I soon learned to abandon this practice in favor of taking a roll call for attendance.

    There was a guy in my high school named David Boner. His dad's name . . . wait for it . . . Harry!

    Also, one of my friend's mom's name is Dorcas. I always thought she was just picking on her and calling her that!
