Russell Ash has trawled parish registers and censuses going back 900 years to compile the first ever complete book of breathtakingly unlikely-but-true British names. It features an incredible and diverse range of totally genuine names, evoking everything from body parts (Dick Brain), s*x (Matilda Suckc**k), illness (Barbaray Headache) and toilet functions (Peter Piddle) to food (Hazel Nutt), animals (Minty Badger) and places (Phila Delphia). Every single one has been checked for authenticity and its source is given, as well as extra notes where further fascinating illumination is possible. The book provides a rigorously researched yet laugh-out-loud overview of Britain's eccentricity through the ages. And in this fully revised, expanded and enhanced paperback edition, it is no exaggeration to say that it's Pottier, Fartier and Knobbier than ever before.

*chortles*

Surnames are funny. I used to work with a lovely girl with the surname of Bloodworth. She told me one day how pleased she was that she was getting married so that her surname would change as she hated the name Bloodworth. I had to try not to laugh when she told me her new name was going to be Cuddy.:-D

I used to work with a Mike Hunt also and he refused to answer to Michael. Insisted his name was Mike.

Anyway I've ordered the book for my brother for Christmas - definitely his kind of humour. Thanks OP

Not sure the OP is "rep hungry", but I agree - these Tesco book deals are getting beyond a joke. We know tesco are doing free delivery on books - enough already!!

I wonder if Mr G.R. Shaw-Twilley gets a mention?

Of all the professions he could have chosen, he went for Headmaster! With that name!

Completely true, google it!

Ordered thanks, I need a chuckle lol :thumbsup:

This is a fantastic book!!! I left it on the table and everyone who saw it was in stitches laughing and couldn't put it down!!! I also bought several copies as presents last year (when it was on offer £3.99 for the hardback which looked nicer) but for £2 delivered this is a bargain. Highly recommended if you have a sense of humour :D

I used to see a family at work called mr & mrs Gotobed. Always made me chortle.

We used to have a student called Wayne Kerr.

His tutor said it was an apt description!

Not noticed until I pointed it out, as registers were always surname, first name. :)
#26
Used to know of a hospital patient called Jenna Taylor. Made the Consultant laugh!
