When my grandmother was alive, she kept lists of funny or unusual names that she heard. She regularly read the paper, and would jot down names as she read. My mother gave me her notebooks of lists, and I have been typing them up to be able to share with family members. Here are some of the funny ones that I have found:
Ima Pearl Crook
There were twins born to a Governor of Texas. He named them Ima Hogg and Ura Hogg
Annie Sharp Married a man surnamed Little. She became Annie Sharp Little. He died, so she married a man surnamed Thorn. She became Annie Sharp Little Thorn.
Martha Long married a Peck--now she is Martha Long Peck
Nellie Bitebellie married a man with a surname Policeman---Now she is Nellie Bitebellie Policeman
Carolyn Bellows married a man surnamed Lowder...now she is Carolyn Bellows Lowder.
Sanna Jane Black married Tom Bird. Now she is Sanna Jane Black Bird
