I remember that one, Andy. It had names like Tess Tickle, Hugh Jars and Percy Vere. It went on for ages, as I remember.

There was a guy who used to make porn who called himself Ben Dover. I don't think that was his real name though.
(not that I know that much about that sort of thing mind you)

If you have a look at this 1940 US census there are some amazing names, would have expected names like that in the 1960s

Re Graham's mention of Ben Dover -
coincidentally, he's mentioned in next week's Radio Times (10-16 May) - father of actor Tyger Drew-Honey.

our physics teacher was called Mr Print ...so of course we all called his daughter little miss Print ...i don't remember her first name .

My penpal has a brother called Xavier ....their surname is Ray .He carries it off well of course it's only english speaking people who notice because X-rays are rayon-x in French .

A name that always made me smile was on a gravestone in my local cemetery. It is Ernest Belcher I wonder if he got his leg pulled about it.
