True story: as a child, my dentist was a man named "Edward Z. Filler" and the sign outside his office said, "E.Z. Filler, Dentist". No lie!

If she had been twins, they could have named the other one Crystal. (but I guess the new would wear off.....)

I worked in the prison for 25 years. After seeing some of the prisoners names you could see how they could end up there. One guy had a last name of Ring, of course his parents named him Peter. Worse yet, one guy's last name was Hole. Yes, his parents named him Dick.

A high court judge was involved in a terrible accident. I won't say which part of his anatomy was injured, just to say that now he's known as Justice Dick.

My tax accountant's name was Adam Upright.

I once knew a Dutchman named Hertz van Rental.

The two guys living next door are John FitzHenry and Henry FitzJohn.

Just call me Ivor Knackforet.

When I was at school, the Principal had a habit of calling the boys Master. I was Master Brookes, for instance, while the guy next to me was Master Smith, and the one behind was Master Jones.

For some reason he rarely talked to Bates.

This is a true story.
Forty ago I met a girl on Amtrak and her name was Merry Finch. I had visions of a little bird hopping around tweeting.
I recently came in touch with her again on Facebook.

True Story,

Had a sales man back in the eighties whose name was Dick Heady, I would have gone by Richard.

And then there was the Frenchman, Peter Gosinea Smile

True Story - In the early 90's I had a trainer come into our company to do technical training. His name was Dick Wiggley... I think I would have gone by Richard! It was hard to keep a straight face!
That same company got a new Vice President from Texas named William Robert Smith. It took us about 2 minutes to get it - Billy Bob!

I'm surprised that some young 'country' singer isn't named Justin Case.

Another true story.
Just after I left school I was working as a trainee accountant in the municipal offices. One of my jobs was the payroll of town employees.
The two men employed to dig graves in the town's cemetery were a Mr. Deadman and a Mr. Boneyard. The job had been in their families for centuries.
