Funny Names

i used to work in a call centre and the peoples names would show up on screen when they rang in. sometimes you'd get some hilarious names pop up on screen, and just wondered if anyone has come across any unfortunate names or just ridiculous ones...

some of the ones i saw were

Fanny Fuchs

and recently came across this (haha, wont actually let the link work cos the word "cvnt" is in it)!!

The worst I saw in my call centre days was 'Cockburn'. I can't remember his 1st name, think it was something normal like 'Dave'.

yeah, I remember asking him to confirm his name when he used to ring in and he pronounced it as you did, I thought he was just too embarrassed/ London posh to pronounce it as spelled.

Got a Mr Belcher once when working in a call centre.

Guy beside me saw me laughing and started burping into my mic! I had to hang up!

Also have had..

Mr Beer
Mr Dick
Mr Right (yes spelled that way...ladies)

Got freaked out when once had someone with the exact same name (but a terrible accent) as me
