I have a fairly unusual first name (Merrick).
One day I was stood talking to a friend at the fruit and veg. stall he runs when another guy came over to say hello to him.
After a brief conversation the other chap left and I asked who he was, "Oh he's called Merrick" said my friend.
When I asked why he hadn't introduced us as we both shared this unusual name, he replied that he didn't think it WAS unusual.......well HE knew TWO of them.........

Either I'm losinh it or it was one of those times when I wrote a long post and then lost my connection and it never made it -- but I was sure I had posted this already and it's not there.

Fifty years ago at Harvard there was a professor named Hooton who lost the respect of many of his students when the word got out that he'd named his newborn son Newton. Where is he now? Probably calling himself N. Something Hooton.

A friend of mine did business with a guy whose name was Morrow Tamalo. He (my friend) would go out of his way to phone him when he knew he was out so he could ask the receptionist to speak 'to Morrow Tamalo' and when she exp;ained that he was gone for the day, he'd say, "Oh, I'll speak to Morrow Tamalo tommorow." He thought it was hysterical.

Many years ago I knew an Englishman named John Case. He married a Swedish lady and had hell of a job stopping her from naming their first child Knut.
