Welcome! We’re so glad you’ve stumbled onto the blog.
What is the Funny Names Blog?
Well, to a point it is fairly self-explanatory. We are not a physics blog after the Nobel Prize here. We are here to introduce you to the vast expanses of people with funny names.
There is a bit more to it than that. We won’t be featuring your uncle Reginald here (fine man that he is). The purpose of our blog is to highlight people with unusual, entertaining, peculiar, occasionally unpronounceable, and certainly out of the ordinary names, who have nonetheless, or perhaps because of it, accomplished great things in life. We are not here to make fun of anyone, but to bring some fun into this world with words and names.
Let’s face it, if you one day met a person named Dick Assman, you would probably smile too.
This is a humble undertaking not meant to offend anyone, merely to entertain and even inspire. Kids with unusual names who know that people called Orland Kurtenbach or Dick Crutcher went on to become famous, successful individuals, famous enough to be mentioned on distinguished blogs on the interwebs, can stop being ashamed of their odd name and become proud of it. And of course, one of the authors of this very blog has more vowels in his name than any sane person would deem necessary so some of this comes from a pure sense of solidarity.
We hope you enjoy our selections.
