This thread was inspired by the recent news that the Cleveland Indians are considering a major trade of one (1) of their fans' favorite players, Coco Crisp.
I chuckle every time I hear his name. Then I start thinking about a number of other strange names for people that I have heard over the years. I even knew some folks with strange names.
Many years ago I worked with a dude named Tim Birr. We had a riot with his name.....especially when we would page him.
Same place, a fella I worked with had a whole slew of kids. This guys last name was Massey. His wife again became prego and they named the newest kid Justin Uther.
Anybody remember the NBA player, World B. Free?
Can't forget my idol, Frank Zappa.....named his kids Dweezil and Moon Unit.
My guess is that some of you more rural types will smile at this name, of a local farmer: Orville Hoodlebrink. You can picture him and you will be correct.
Porn names are fun, but those were studio names.
Can you recall some other famous and "strange" names? Did you personally know some folks with "strange" names?
What say you?
