Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

There was a girl named Neetu Nangia in my school.

Needless to say, she was known as Neetu "Nangi" to all. Although some preffered Neetu "Jangia".

BTW, LOL @ the Tatty conversations earlier in this thread!!

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

When I was a kid we had made a series witrh all surnames of people living in our colony. All marathi since I was in Maharashtra.......


1. Kanikdale ( Knead the dough )
2. Sambhare ( Take it as sambar - food )
3. Vadabhat ( Vada Rice - food )
4. Chepe ( Hog - Eat like a pig - Mamu aaj maine jam ke Chepa )
5. Potdukhe ( Tummy Ache )
6. patalhaage ( Cha pai will explain this better )


These were all the people living in our area....

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

How about an Italian woman with a name as Tootsiana Booberini - obviously her parents should have chosen a different first name to go with the Booberini

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

i knew a gujju guy whose surname was dalal and everyone harassed him.

and then there was another guy in school whose surname was chodankar..marathi guy...later on i came to know he changed his surname to dalal which made me speechless and thoughtless at that moment.
