Outstanding Names

Few cracking names of people I've worked with..

Tom Amato - the company email was initial and surname, so it was always a giggle when Tamato@ emailed.

Robin Basten - a name where you had to say it as a whole to feel just right.

The name of 80s kids TV presenter Christopher Lillicrap used to get a good chuckle out of young Bobby D.

I used to work with Richard Edward Hunter. Dick Ed Hunter.

I only know of him from his appearance on Fantasy Football League during the mid 90's, but Forbes Phillipson-Masters has always tickled me for having the poshest name in the whole of football. He played for Plymouth and Bristol City during the early to mid 80's.

There's also the terribly named Max Power who plays for Wigan.

Bit of a common one, but i went to school Mike Hunt. He was not my cunt, he was ok.

We also had a local greengrocer by the name of R.Sewell. I have no idea if he lived up to his moniker or not?

We were at an exhibition today about Pieter Bruegel the Elder (not that outstanding a name) and found out about a publisher he worked with in the 1550s who had the completely outstanding name of Hieronymus Cock.

Hieronymus Cock.

Sat in the dentist just now, quite a few people in the waiting room. One f the dentists came out to get her next patients. She was looking for Mr and Mrs Rumble. Whether they were royal or not I couldn't tell.
