I know somebody who's last name is Putz.

I also know a plastic surgeon named Fanny Louten (which is also her job description).

My dad had a secretary named Rose Fanny. Nobody called her Pink Bottom -- to her face, or not twice, anyway.

I met a guy did not have a first or middle name, just initials "E Z" last name "Million". (Yes, an operator type and no, I don't know for sure that his name wasn't simply Ed Zed Million or Ezekiel.

My wife knew someone named Female -- pronounced Fi Mahl Li. Parents were from Jamaica and when she was born, her mother thought the hospital had named her because they had written Female on the birth cert and Mom thought it was so pretty.

Freakonomics has a whole chapter on names, including some 'odd' choices.

We had sons, which is just as well. Last name is Lande but the e is silent. For a girl, I wanted to use the first and middle names Allison Wanda. *Put all three together and say out loud.*

Older son knows that he could have been named Swazi. But then, He tried to convince someone his middle name was ShiThead so I guess he would have coped.
