Child in my town named La'Dasha but it is spelled L-A. The dash symbol is pronounced "dash."

We also have a talented highschool football player named Famous Fred. He was interviewed on TV and said someday he would live up to his name.

We grew up with a neighbor named Richard Weed.
He went by Rich or Richard. Not the D word nickname many Richards go by.

My cousin does nails and waxing s and massages and she has a customer with a grandchild named Shethead pronounced sha-theed.
Yes they’re African American
Pretty close to poop-head , sadly. And the kid gets picked on a lot
Also know a white couple who named their son Dude.
Gota wonder what kinda drugs folks where doing when naming their kids.

I had an aunt that was married to a Knee. She divorced him and married a Foote. No joke. Had a customer that was a Growcock. He had to have been a tough kid in high school.

My wife used to substitute teach. Had a little girl in her class one day who pronounced her name "shi-teed". I'll censor the spelling so the forum filter doesn't have too: Sh##head. Imagine my wife's surprise during morning roll call.

Here's an article about an unfortunate Vietnamese name. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...ese-student-Phuc-Bui-anglicize-name.html

Friend in high school with the last name "Chicken". He was in the Air Force and was a pilot that flew cargo planes. He changed his last name to his mothers maiden name as saying Captain Chicken over the intercom did not reassure the troops!
