Default Funny real names

Funny real names of people you know or knew

I knew a car mechanic called Holly Lions (in case you are wondering he was a he) Getting him to actually fix your vehicle was almost impossible as his only real interest was talking.

I knew a scrap metal person called Bunny Whale (also male) he rarely spoke and had a Springer Spaniel that would bring you stones to throw, even if they were thrown into a pile of other stones he would never give up looking and would bring you the right one back however long it took.

I knew a lad who used to work for my dad called Colin Colin, I can't recall anything else about him

A commercial painter who went by Al. His parents named him in 1939 after a rising politician from their home country. At that time the family name was Hizler. Shortly after that they started using the last name of Hazlet. But they never legally changed it. So Al Hazlet had a driver's liscense with his real name Adolph Hizler.

The there is my late cousin Justin Apple.

Many years ago I knew John Pipe. He was in charge of water resources for a power generator.

A local firm of solicitors is known as Wright-Hassal. Anyone who has ever used any English solicitor (e.g. to buy a house) will know exactly what they mean.
