What's the strangest Surname you've ever heard of?

I reckon the Minister for Transport has the strangest name

Mr Lady-Man

    Me too! They don't appreciate the chuckles, ever.

    Not that weird, but the assistant manager at my old workplace was a real ladies man with a very fitting surname.. Pickup.

    What's weird about that?! Consider yourself lucky boy, my maiden name was Dünger.

    My name now is as common as muck and that's just how I like it. Don't have to spell it for anyone! :yippe:

    I was watching a tv show last night - which was acutally very good and called Not Forgotten but one of the main ladies featured in it was called Elsie Knocker - which just had me and my mother in law in fits of hysterics.

    She was very brave though and did lots of amazing nursing on the front line in world war one and really shouldn't be laughed at.

    Mr Weiner (although they said 'Winer') and Mr Badger are the funniest names I've ever come across. Checking them in with a straight face when I worked at the airport was well hard.

    i know a couple of Pratts which is a bit unfortunate.

    There's a family of Cockerill's that live down the round which is a bit of a random farmyard name ;p

    One of our Professors is called Willy Large...

    I've always wanted to meet someone called Richard Head.

    There was a guy I met once back home called Richard Brie. Needless to say, he had a cracking nickname...

    I also know people with surnames such as Puddifoot and Tinker.

    My mate had a teacher called Miss Tickle...

    Wonder if her first name was Tess... :chin:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ohh also my mother in law used to work for someone who was called

    R Soul

    He always just signed himself Soul for some reason.........

    R Souls is a coach company where I'm from :D

    And Cockburn - theres a Historian called Cockburn, pronounced Cohburn. I said Cockburn because I didn't realised, and everyone laughed at me :(

    my family surname is woollacott. i doubt that any of you would've spelt that with the correct number of o's, l's and t's if i'd asked you!

    oh and my mum and step-dad clearly have the best surname. it's rocks. if it was my surname i'd so be emphasising the 'rocks' so it'd be like 'lucy ROCKS!' :p

    Miss Cumslatch is the strangest I've come across. She used to teach netball to the girls at my old school.

    a friend of mine has the surname bibizadeh

    very silly indeed
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Mine's pretty silly for the main reason that it's about 101% Irish.

    Having said that, I'd prefer to have a less-common surname than a common one. Mrs T, whose surname is Davies, can't wait to adopt my name!

    My surname. ;)
    Yeah, I would agree.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
