Just remembered another apparently well-endowed former colleague, name of Treblecock.

Then there was the American girl who liked names such as LaToyah, so she named her baby daughter LaTrine.

This is a true story. Last week my friend visited his dentist for a checkup.
Reclining back in the chair, friend pointed to a tooth and asked "how's my cap going?". Dentist tapped the adjacent tooth and "this is the capped one", "how do you know" friend asked.

"cos I'm a dentist" replied dentist!! hahaha!!

By coincidence, while watching a programme on BBC last night, a marine biologist featured with the name Steve Haddock.
And, when a schoolboy in the early 1960s, my bus to school passed a fruit & veg shop in Birkenhead owned by S. Melling".
Finally, I worked with a bloke named Chris, surname Mycock. It always caused a titter to see his name in correspondence as C. Mycock.

Thanks for the link, Sallyann.
I notice, on his site, he puts it plainly as 'Death'.
Down here, we have a well-respected test-pilot and warbird punter by the name of Steve Death.
Those in the know take the trouble to pronounce it as "Deeth", though.

As long as we're on the funnies page, I had a flip through Dave Death's motorcycle 'For Sale' listings.
Among the offerings appears a Yamaha 125cc scooter with the awe-inspiring title of "Majesty S".
Wow! .. Gotta get me one. That name's bound to impress all the boys and girls down at the Ace Café.
(And the local kiddies in their billycarts).

Stanwell,
Keeping on the names theme, one of the staff has the first name 'Agusta'.

Blimey! Dave Death still going and I remember that from 50 or so years ago but I'm sure it was De Ath back then.

I once chaired a business meeting attended by Michael Jackson (who worked for me), Rachel Hunter, Glen Campbell and 2 others. None were the famous ones, however.

He would be either 49 or 50 now.

About four years ago we went to a wedding and during the celebrations afterwards this old buffer got up and made the most fantastic speech where he recalled the bridegrooms childhood and also his brides early years and the attraction that was evident to all between the couple that had made their commitment that day.
He made reference to a toast for the happy couple [Mr & Mrs Herrick] but a quick chat in his ear by the brides mother Mrs Hunt " that they would be known by both of their last names"
Old buffer stood up again and asked all to charge their glasses and toast the happy couple with a "Three cheers for Mr & Mrs Herrick-Hunt "
Most dissolved when they caught on.

About 25 years ago, the part of Property Services Agency I worked for boasted an Emerson, a Lake and a Palmer. I couldn't quite see Ms Palmer standing in for Carl on the drums though.

The company is still going, but not the founder.
