Came across this artcle today.

Baby Names You Should Never Use. Ever

Some things are just too cruel to inflict on anyone, especially when that someone is a sweet new baby. An archive assistant at Cornwall County Record Office in England may have done us all a great favor by revealing the odd, real-life names found in census, birth, death and marriage records dating back to the 16th century, reports The Associated Press.

Helpfully, the Cornwall County Record Office has published the list--1,000 in all. "My all-time favorites are Abraham Thunderwolff and Freke Dorothy Fluck Lane," the aforementioned archivist, Rene Jackaman, told AP. Others include the following from the Hornblower family: Horatio, Azubia, Constantia, Jecoliah, Jedidah, Jerusha and Erastus.

Here are more. Remember, they're all real names:
Boadicea Basher
Philadelphia Bunnyface
Faithful Cock
Susan Booze
Elizabeth Disco
Edward Evil
Fozzitt Bonds
Truth Bullock
Charity Chilly
Gentle Fudge
Obedience Ginger
Offspring Gurney
Levi Jeans

Imagine receiving an invitation to these weddings:
Nicholas Bone and Priscilla Skin were joined in wedlock in 1636.
Charles Swine and Jane Ham wed in 1711.
John Mutton and Ann Veale married in 1791.
Richard Dinner and Mary Cook said "I do" in 1802.

Mish - lol! As a medical transcriptionist we come across all the bizarro names. I'll see if I can dig up a few to post. On second thought, I don't think I can post patient names - however, the docs aren't far behind. There's a doctor here in Charleston whose name is - no lie - Strait Fairy
