    I had a biology teacher called Pete Marsh and went to school with a girl called Nova Carr – oh how she got some stick when Vauxhall named their Fiesta challenger!

    In the paper about a month ago there was a guy called Butch Gaylover, American obviously. I don't know how the journo managed not to mention the hilarity.

    There was a BMW dealership in Harrogate owned by Eric Hunt, but all his signs said Eric G. Hunt, boring man.

    And a double glazing firm run by the wonderfully-named Hedley Cockshot.

    Many moons ago I used to work with a Mike Hunt. On a plant shutdown I needed to get hold of him or his side kick, Tony Havercroft, who were sharing a walkie-talkie. Convinced that I couldnโ€™t say Mike Hunt over the radio without cracking up I went for the safe option, but got it all wrong and called him Tony Hovercraft. He wasnโ€™t impressed.

    I went to college with a girl called 'Iona Hore' never did find out if her middle name was 'crack' or 'filthy'. She changed her name, not unsurprisingly!

    I have worked with a Mr Mann, Ben Down met a Mr Tickle who pronounced it tickel. Had to put a tannoy call out for a Mrs Verjee who did surprisingly not respond to the Mrs Virgin announcement. Went out a few times with a guy with the surname Bucket. Also knew a guy whose name was Keiron Burke he always said his name was Keiron Neil Oswald Burke not too sure how true that was.

    I used to work with a Mr Mann, he called his son Connor.

    Not unfortunate, the bloke was just plain stupid, he burned out his moped to claim on the insurance, which he later found out was only covered for 3rd party. ๐Ÿ˜†

    My wife knows a Dr Pepper, Dr Death, and of course Doc Martin.

    Recent one of her mates, Dr Wright married a Dr Payne. We suggested they go for a double-barrelled surname, but they strangely refused.

    I've always found the sign 'Family Butcher' as an interesting concept

    And there is of course the story of the driver who crashed his car. Two couples were first on the scene, a Mr and Mrs Smith and a Mr and Mrs Ball.

    Luckily he was dragged from the wreckage by the Smiths.

    Most amusing for me was sitting in the garden of a pub in the new forest, when you ordered food they called your name, I showered my wife in lager when the waitress shouted 'Food for Hiscock' ๐Ÿ˜€
