I had some dealings recently with a solicitor, a Mr. Gentry.

His full name??? HUGH GENTRY!!! Full marks to his father's (or mother's) sense of humour!

I tried, but failed, not to laugh out loud on the phone.

Courtesy of when I worked several decades back in a Belfast branch of a well known local bank -

We had a customer called Howard Nutt (in Belfast parlance Hard Nutt), whose wife was called Hazel and his daughter was called Patricia, but signed her cheques with her first initial. Hard Nutt, Hazel Nutt and P Nutt.

I once came across a lady named Alice Hoare. She never, ever, wrote her name as A. Hoare.
