Btw, I'm Russian. You can trust me for Russian things.
cousin knew a girl at her school named Taryn Hymen.
Try to say Mike Hunt out loud...
My boss & best friend has the last name Dick.
That's the origin of the name but in modern Russian they're distinct words are they not?
I never said it was horrendous.
I know quite a few people with the surname Dyck.
Hitler would be a pretty bad one, and perhaps in America, names like Booth and Harvey Oswald.
In Georgia (the country) some girls have the first name Nazi but no connection to the Nazis. It would be really tough if they moved to a Western country.
For Chinese people, there's Wang and Poon
董 (Dǒng) is also a pretty common surname.
I know someone whose father's surname is 何 (Hé), but her parents let her used her mother's surname instead so she wouldn't be teased at school (何 is also commonly transliterated as Ho).
Sheila Dik****. That is very funny.
Other than Mike Hunt, which I believe has been mentioned already, there is that old world war 1 vet named Harry Patch.
A girl at my school has a last name of Dick.. I can't remember any other really embarrassing ones though..
Do a search for "Anders Breivik" on Facebook. It's not only the guy behind the recent Oslo attack who carries that name.
I've got a friend with a similar problem. Facebook won't let him go by his real surname, 'The'.
Transformers 3 was 10 minutes longer due to this fact.
I'm very tired of the fact that the surname "Wang" seems to be the only Chinese surname ever used in Hollywood.
It's not even pronounced 'Wang' as in 'hang', anglicised.
It's pronounced 'Wang' like a 'wan' from 'wand' and ending with a quick'-ng' from 'hung'
Interesting choice of words...
Harry Baals (pronounced "balls")
Separate names with a comma.
