Friday Five – Names That Are Fun To Say — 6 Comments

  1. Oh! Chicago Blackhawks goalie Nikolai Khabibulin. You sort of gargle the “kh”. It is SO fun to say.

    Radio host Jonathan Brandmeier once called up a Greek restaurant on April Fool’s Day and asked them to page “Harry Paratestes”. That was pretty good.

  2. @futsal: oh yeah, all those names!
    @Kirk: Real people with names who have names that can be suggestive have it tough. Like Crumpacker!
    @Gretchen: I’ll remember Harry Paratestes… SIL will love it!

  3. HA! I am SO proud to be a Crumpacker. When I first met my husband (he was my boss at a temp job) I thought it was so funny I could hardly say it. His friends call him Crampecker, Fudgepacker, Rump Packer, etc. Whenever I call up to make restaurant reservations, I always use our last name instead of a first name. I once called a place to confirm a reservation for a dinner/concert I had made months earlier, and when I gave our name, she said “Oh, I remember YOU!”
