Old enough to work in a bank means old enough to change his name if it bothers him. 

The residents of Fucking village in Upper Austria do not like tourists who come there for the sign (and steal it). Yet they do not want to change the name (despite many possibilities, originally the village was called Vucckingen). It has something to do with pride, I think. Not so easy.

So Owain, what difficulties do they have with your name? You're not a Gylvaethwy are you? Maybe Gwenwynwyn or Ondyaw. Newyddllyn maybe? Welsh names, like jewels in your mouth! :P

There is a Welsh guy in my team called Wyn or Wynn or whatever. Everybody tends to think its WEAN or Win etc. His brother is Brynnn aka Brian

Examples?

 

Germans are getting worse and worse with names.. The name Finn in particular gets on my nerves.. But lots of Jason-Robert's or whatever too I seem to hear about.. Those are more kind of just gross. "Finn" though gets under my skin..

In Germany, the name Ficker is not very rare. I had a colleague called G isela Ficker (I didn't know her; she worked at a different Dienststelle). I always wondered why she didn't change her name. I would, especially as a woman. She was pretty, too. I think even after marriage she kept her name but I'm not quite sure about that,

Maybe so they can market it to swingers and porn directors.  

 

Why don't they just SELL the Fucking sign?  (pun intended) Seems like a money-maker...

Perhaps because this word, while also can be used for swearing, is in general less pejorative than in English. And maybe she doesn't deal with many English speakers who would burst laughing.

 

Actually this is not a stupid name for a male. Someone with the name Gunther and last name Ficker calling asshole Telekom support:

- My Internet is down.

- Your name, please.

- Good lover.

- WIE BITTE?

- Good lover. With "n" and "th". But actually I am.

ohhhh and there was a teller at my bank in California whose nametag said "bodhi woodsorrel"

 

he caught me looking at the tag and we met eyes and he blushed and looked like he wanted to crawl under the desk...poor guy

I've told this once before - Some years ago I was at our company's Service Convention in San Francisco & in the "demonstration room" the contact lady had on her name tag "L. McCartney".

 

When I idly commented on this she said "yes - my name is Linda & actually I'm married to Paul".

Well, a brewery had the idea to name a beer after that village. As you now, in German beer is called "dunkel" or "hell", so - guess what -  that beer is named "Fucking Hell".

 

No kidding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fucking_Hell

And what is more important: they won the court against EU Intellectual Property Office who tried to ban registering this as a trademark.

 

Pedantically, the beer should be called Fuckinger Hell, but trademarks need not be grammatically correct.

Ivrea-duomo-targa_Arduino.jpg.98b1c3c564

 

That's about the 1000th anniversary of the coronation of Arduino, Marquis of Ivrea, as king of Italy...take a guess at which university the the Arduino platform originated

 

Another name on that is Warmondo (with the title of Prelate) who apparently had some beef with said Arduino but they reconciled...more details to be found in your nearest history book

Thankfully my mother was quicker to register both my elder sister's and my names my dad wanted to give us the middle names "Bang" and "Ramble" respectively.

Had a business partner whose surname was Hunt. It was hard to understand how his parents could have thought Michael was an

appropriate first name.

How's this for stupid (pompous).

 

The British Conservative MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg, just named his sixtth child   "Sixtus Dominic Boniface Christopher".

 

He's probably already down for Eton, which is just as well, because at any normal school this poor kid's life would be hell.

Deadringers on BBC radio did a joke on that:

 

Actor playing JR-M (talking with posh accent): "It´s outrageous Preston. My children have perfectly normal names."

 

Preston: "Ah, that´s why you named your newly born son Sixtus Dominic Boniface Christopher."

 

JR-M: "Were going to call him ´privileged´ for short."

 

:D:D:D

Not sure if it was the Deadringers show, or another BBC comedy show, where I heard 'an announcer' say,

"Jacob Rees-Mogg has introduced the media to his youngest son, Sixtus.

 

Sixtus was photographed beside his elder siblings, Five-us, Four-us, Three-us, Two-us and One-us."

 

:lol:
