    Too funny Stuck,

    Reminds me of a company I once worked for where the Customer Relations manager was named I. Hatem. I always wondered how that went over the first time he met with a customer.

    We have a Dr. Death in a medical practice nearby. I don't use him myself. Also had a Dr. Steel(e) as a lecturer in metallurgy.

    Not one but two dentists named Fangman, and then, umm, there's this OB/Gyn who doesn't do much advertising. (May be of amusement only to persons in the USA.)

    When I was in high school we had a teacher who's only teaching job was to teach music and who's last name was "Music".

    He really lived up to his name, because he could teach anyone who attended his class (with enough time) to play a musical instrument or learn how to read music.

    Each lesson must have ended with a bit of a clef hanger.

    I once had a school headmaster call Richard Head. Of course most students referred to his Christian name in the dimunitive.

    In my time, in my Brooklyn HS, we did that most of the time, regardless of what our teachers name were.
