knew a John Leu who used to joke that his first and last name were slang for toilet, but I don't think his parents were intentional there.
I dunno...my parents almost named me Anna Samantha thus making my initials A.S.S. They didn't realize it until my aunt pointed it out in the delivery room! Thank G-d for small miracles!!!
There is a news anchor in Chicago named Dick Johnson...which gives my sons hours of giggles. Especially when he is paired with the weatherman, Pete Sack. What were the parents thinking?!
Peter Johnson = future urologist
There was a man running for office in Massachusetts about ten years ago with the name Peter Unitt. I don't believe he won...
May not be intentional. "Peter" is a fairly traditional male name around here, and "Johnson" is (check the phone book) a common surname.
Nah. There are just too many slang synonyms for penis.
My husband's grandpa's name is Dick Johnson. I've never stopped finding that hilarious and strange. (and the penis association was one reason I did not want to change my name)
When I opened this post, I thought this was going to be about a Richard Dyck.
This post reminds me of a true story. My grandfather's had a friend (who has since departed) who was a doctor and his name was Dr. Hymen Finger. He specialty was in Gynecology and Proctology.(I kid you not.) Everytime he saw me he wanted a hug and I was always apprehensive (Hmm ... I wonder why). LOL
I knew a French kid named Pierre Le Coq
Anon 5:31- Did he have a hymen finger and a rectal finger? I am still not sure if I believe that one.
LOL I can't blame you Brittles, but since he has passed away I can not show you anything about him. (FWIW, no one believes me either ...)
I know of a family doc named Seymour Weiner :-p
I do know lots of Dr. Weiners, Wangs, and Johnsons (not all Urology, though; one Dr. Weiner is Ob/Gyn, if that counts!) but none of them have 'matching' first names, so I can't say if it's a purposeful trend or not. I have heard of a "Harold Buttes" but don't know if I can' trust that one. Me - I'm just going to change my last name to Acula and be Doctor Acula. :-)Jasmine
