    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

    then of course on Someone's side of the family are the names Fothiker and Lipshitz.

    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
