Nasty Naming!

The inventor of the Lear Jet, Mr. Lear, reportedly named one of his daughters "Shanda". Nice. Then Kanye West named his kid "North". I half expected his next child to be named "Wild" or "Go". Frank Zappa stuck his kids with the appellations "Dweezil", "Moon Unit", "Ahmet" (how did that one slip in?), and "Diva". Long, long ago I went to junior high school with a Darlene Fuchs (a last name that everyone chose to say without a long "u" sound), and I currently have a female friend named (and I kid you not) Misty Beaver. What "nasty names" have you encountered?

I have always loved how the censors missed "Beaver Cleaver"!

@RobLawrence well then my mission here is done!


One of my best friends last name is Beaver. I went to high school with a Mary Jane Fink. I also went to junior high with a guy named Eichman Louis Langley. I can't remember anybody else except for me. My maiden name is Guzlecki. Nobody could pronounce it correctly.
