    I grew up with a girl named Jennifer Butz and she got married when she was 19. I always had the feeling she got married just to change her last name.

    I used to work with a kid named Ronald Reagan. His parents were fans, I guess.

    There is (or was) a New Hampshire representative named Dick Swett.

    I never understood why he didn't just go by Richard. Rich, even. Hell, Ricky would have been better.

    Amanda, anytime I meet a "Dick" I think that. Why not go by something that doesn't make us think of your genitalia? :rolleyes

    In college I knew a girl named Regina but the way she pronounced it rhymed with...well, girl parts to dip into preschool lingo. She lived on my floor and I just remember doing anything to avoid saying her name.

    Great names everyone! Hilarious
    I also know a girl named Sweta (shh-way-ta) But everyone calls her Schweaty Balls, which reminds me of a SNL episode when they are on the radio and a guy named Schweaty comes in and talks about his Christmas Balls. "Mmm. your balls are so firm and succulent, I love you schweaty balls!" Good times

    Apparently, there was rather popular British painter who lived around the mid-1800s named William Breakspeare. And another rather popular British painter living around the same period named William Shakespeare Burton.

    Interesting, IMO.

    We had a kid in high school for awhile named Randy Butts. He's been in and out of jail lately for sexual assault. Perhaps a little too randy?

    I went to h/s with a boy named Peter Paneritus - I giggled everytime I heard it because I thought it was fitting that a young man who acted like a child SHOULD have peter pan in his name.
    My husband's neighbour growing up: Jack Dick
    We named our daughter Meredith (protector of the sea) and planned on naming our next daughter Celeste (protector of the stars).. but we decided one was enough.
    I had a child in my daycare named Diamond and at the moment I have a Chase, Keegan, Halley and a Shayla.
    btw Chase was very well named, that boy doesnt give me a moment's rest
