weirdest surname you have ever come across.

What is the weirdest surname you have ever come across? It could be indian as well as non-indian.

In my opinion marathis have weirdest surname in india ( sorry Sunit and others, no offence meant). Biharis may qualify for weirdest first name but marathis take the cherry when it comes to surname.
e.g. : I have heard of, Dhote, Dhomne, Phadkar ( dutta the famous cricketer), Patkar, Kangale ( u wont believe a bank manager), kharab, Lele, Khare, Khote, Gaydhane, Linge.... list is endless.
Then there is Salman Butt from pakistan. A Jack Russell from England. Matsikeyneri ( cant spell) from zimbabwe apart Olonga, Mbwanga etc.
Even Sindhis have interesting surname.
Nagvani, Advani, Khushlani etc.

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

Have two coworkers with the last names of Wojciechowski and Sczcepanksi. In case you're wondering, the names are pronounced "Voi-shove-ski" and "Che-pan-ski".

Then, there is Xiang-he Qiao, whose name is actually pronounced "Shiang-ha Chao"

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

4th spot goes to 'Lodha', very dangerous surname - naam hi kaafi hai, nothing to add to it, 'Aur lodha ji, kaise hai aap ?' , hehe,

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

Strange Surnames,...




Besides our Indian weirdo surnames such as,...


Asha Bhos le
Shobha De
Manohar Le le
Diana Panty
Sunny Le Yoni
Ravindra Banchhod
Ashok LeyLand
Sheila Dixit
Mr. Boob
Batliwaala
Ghotaskar
Lund
Randy
Landya bhai
Sonaram Chutia
Rose Marlo
Boss D.K.


In Spanish class we had to answer 5 questions about ourselves anonymously today. We were going to play a game where our teacher read out our description and favorite hobbies etc.

Anyhow, the 5th question asked who our favorite actor/actress was. I don't have one, so I wrote "Hugh Janus" as mine.

After about 5 others, she came to mine and read "Favorite actor: Hugh Janus". Twice.

Our class went out of control. She didn't get it.

That joke was on the weatherman report,..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfFoDc4NUZA

Also during the CWG games in India last time,..
one CM lady named Sheila Dixit was ridiculed as Dick-shit on TV,...
and they had to later apologize it ! He had to even quit the TV later
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8l8x36fjvjk


Ah ! you can't beat the classics. There's a whole area of name comedy to choose from.

Ben Dover
Phil McRackin
Aymak Wier
Amanda Huggenkiz
Mustafa Biggin
Ivan Oylwell
Anita Dick
Cox Ucker
Mike Hunt
Maya Titsaflopin
Pat McGroin
Willie Focker

Some parents are completely blind to this, I've known a Mike Hunt, Faye Clegg, and worst of all: Chris Peacock.
_______________

The name Rose Marlow - translates in Asian - hindi-urdu language as
" F*** me daily "
and Chu Tia as " P***y Man "

Ola Jagguji. Looks like you are unbanned.
So, apart from your 3 emergency projects and industrial tours, you now have a Spanish class too.
