    So here's the longer anecdote:

    I was married to Wesley Barfuss. (I know, I know). We had two kids. Let me say it before anyone else does: my kids were Barfii.
    Fortunately they are girls and both have since married. (however, I secretly wanted to have a boy and name him Ralph.)
    did I mention I had a dentist named Dr. Love?

    I've seen a person name their online character "Ecstasy". I mean come on now, is it appropriate to use the name of a date-rape drug in a MMORPG aimed at 13 year olds?

    I have known two families that had all girls and named them all with boy sounding names with girl spellings. Bobbi, Toni, Joey, Kelly, Leslie, Johnnie, Peri, and Kari.

    The In-School-Suspension (all day detention)teacher in my high school was named Sandy Hill.

    A client of mine had a baby that was born deaf. She named her Echo.

    I worked at a bank and there was a customer with the name of Christopher Christian Christopherson. Sucks to write that out on a check!

    Wow sen -- my dentist's name was Dr. Slaughter. He's an oral surgeon on the Monterey Peninsula.

    My boss's name is Dick. when I'm out of the office and have to call in to talk to him, I call him by his last name so I don't have to say "I'm looking for Dick."

    In my hometown we have a plastic surgeon named Dr. Chopra. There's also a family of Butts and a family of Piggs. I hope they never intermarry.
    BTW, I read of a study of people with unusual names, which showed that those people tend to think of themselves as more special and unique.

    My mom went to school with a man named Brenda (no, this is not a Johnny Cash song . . . ), and I went to high school with twins named T and K. That's it; T and K. Not even Tee and Kay. T and K.

    My general practitioner used to be a man named Dr. Fixx

    When a friend of mine started dating a girl named Daiquiri, I thought it weird to have named your child after an alcoholic drink. Then they got married and she got his last name of Ralph. For months after the wedding we referred to her as Margarita Hurl.
