Weird family names.Sintesi

Does anyone have relatives w/ goofey names? My family is from the south and omg! Here let me get the ball rolling.

Mom - Guyla Rosalee
Dad - Jimmy Dean
Grandpa - Coy
Grandma (my favorite)- Bobbie Pearl
Grandma - Beaulah Rosalee
Uncle - Rufus

I have a cousin nicknamed Dooger. (hard g)

kind of embarrassing. Yes we have more than three teeth between us and no we are not inbred. Actually there are a couple doctors in the family -Vernon and Carl. Can you top this? Or am I alone with this burden?

I have one cousin named Star Twinkle. She's a babe, too.

We got the best of the Old South (mom from there, born 1921) and whatever was going on in my dad's family in California: Names include Myrtice, Marvarene, Trudalee, Hazel, Sophie (I sort of like that one) and three men named Francis Coral, of which I'm III.

My two grandmother's names were Tot and Zena Louise. They were country girls as you can imagine. My aunt’s names were Lydie May and Lavern. My once-hippie aunt named my 1st cousin "Daisy".

There was once a very rich family in Houston with the last name of Hogg. The sick part was that they named their girls, Ima and Ura. Ima Hogg didn't let her name hold her back from providing generous endowments to the community.

My great grandmother's name was Bertha - they called her Bert. Hubby is also from the south and had a great granmother named Itys. Also a distant cousin named Kernel -spelled that way too.

I dunno--if names like "Hazel", "Olive" or "Sophie" (or even "Daisy") seem strange to you, then you really need to get out more...
Yeah, but Marvarene is a doozy.Sintesi

True story, knew a guy named Harry Butt. I always found it kind of funny that he owned a septic cleaning business.

A friend of mine said he knew a guy when he was a kid named Randy Wanker which they then discovered also happened to be perfect English slang for "horny masturbator." I think they called him Horny for a year.

My wife's grandmother told us she had an ancestor by that name. They were from the Pacific Northwest. I think there might have been a native American connection. How'd you like to carry that name through junior high school.

I understand that a family in Texas named Hogg, named their daughters Ima Hogg and Ura Hogg.
