    I haven't seen this one yet...
    But do you remember the downhill skiier Piccaboo Street. Her parents let her pick her own name when she was little. Does that seem cruel to anyone else?

    I have a few for y'all. Brothers Russell Ford (aka Rusty) and Dustin Dodge (aka Dusty), not that those aren't bad enough names, but their last name was Fender. What were their parents thinking?!

    I went to school with a guy named Brian Joseph Sieman, but he was only called by his initials. Yes, BJ Sieman, and the last name is pronounced just the way you are thinking. He joined the Navy after we graduated, and I heard people joking that he was now known as Seaman BJ Sieman. Hey, it was high school, and seemed hilarious at the time.

    We had twins Stormy and Breezy, who also lived up to their names.

    One I'll never forget, was Raven Cheyenne. Hydrocephalic and unwanted by her parents. She lived for 7 months, longer than anyone expected.

My mother-in-law and her siblings are Peggy Joyce, Billie Doris, Jimmie Carol, Jo Ann, Mary Nell and Truman.

    My grandmother's name is Fairy Elaine (she goes by Elaine), I know a guy named Major Lee Back, I went to elementary school with Vu Do (Voo Doo), who had a sister named Vi Do...

    There's also a girl who calls into my office at work a lot whose last name is Assman (pronounced Oz-man). I'm always very careful to identify her by her first name to avoid mispronouncing the last name!!
