Well, if you want to inflict a name, this might as well be it:

Births Sep 1868 (>99%)
THURSTON Wanton Wenworth Poplar 1c 640

Or better still:

Deaths Mar 1859 (>99%)
HADDOCK Nutty Plomesgate 4a 438

Evel Knevel

Still pronounced Evil.

Evil appears to be Evie (birth as Evil, marriage and death as Evie)
How many of the others are not what they might appear?

Well so far on GR I've found records for Satan, Witch, Trouble, Hate, Kindred, Grouchy, Naughty, Pest, Pesky, Kitten and apparently there are 1,162 matches for Bastard in the Birth records.

Some names are still on the go today.

I didn't find anything for Dogbreath or Puppy though.

Aren't surnames wonderful :-D
