- Boadicea Basher
- Philadelphia Bunnyface
- Leicester Railway Cope (He was born in a train carriage at Leicester Railway Station)
- Freke Dorothy Fluck Lane (I picture her as the historical counterpart to the little girl in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off who sits by herself on the school bus holding melted gummy bears.)
These children in the 1800s may have had inferiority complexes due to their first names:
- Friendless Baxter
- One Too Many Gouldstone
- That's It Who'd Have Thought It Restell
- Offspring Gurney
Arthur and Sarah Pepper had a baby girl in 1882 and gave her a name for every letter in the alphabet:
- Mineral Waters
- Zebra Lynes
- Thomas and Alice Day named their son Time Of—Time Of Day.
- Windsor Castle (Her mother’s maiden name was King.)
We've all snickered over marriage announcements where contemporary couples have interesting last name combinations:
Do you think people chuckled when these duos married?
- Nicholas Bone and Priscilla Skin in 1636
- Charles Swine joined Jane Ham in 1711
- John Mutton and Ann Veale in 1791
- Richard Dinner with Mary Cook in 1802
We may be separated by centuries, but we're not that different after all.
