Alright look, my parents used to watch the TV show M.A.S.H and then call each other afterwords.
They were making a long distance relationship work and apparently that’s what time the phone rates went down.
Anyway, long story short I ended up with the name BJ after Mike Ferrel’s character BJ Hunnicutt. Of course those were only my initials but that’s what I was called growing up.
Which was fine… until of course I got old enough to realize that BJ happened to stand for something else as well.
Needless to say I wasn’t real thrilled with my parent’s choice of name for me.
Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t grow up hating them or life, I mean hey, I could have been named Klinger right?
Anyway the point is, I always wondered how the hell my parents figured naming their son BJ would be a good idea.
After coming across a few of these names in the phone book, I started to realize a lot of people had parents a lot dumber than mine.
With that in mind, I began scouring the web for funny and/or unfortunate names.
I do most of my searching on AnyWho.com but really, any phone book or white pages will do.
If you find a name that you think should be added to the site, drop it in the form to the right.
If it’s a real name, be sure to leave the city and state as well so that I can verify it’s authenticity.
If you’re one of the unfortunate souls that was given one of these horrible names, please feel free to contact me and if possible send an image of your drivers license (I’d recommend redacting all the personal info but if you don’t know how I promise I will) so I can post it on the site.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the site as much as I’ve enjoyed making it!
