    I used to know an Andrew Holliday who did his PhD in philosophy, just so he could call himself Doc. I was at school in the 1960's with a Teresa Greene.

    Mike Hunt would have to be the chart topper, I always remember one of the competitors in the game Carmageddon was called that and it came up across the bottom of the screen "Mike Hunt is chasing you down!"

    I went to school with a guy called Neil Ling. Everyday at registration the teacher would call out 'Neil Ling' and all us kids would shout back 'sitting, standing, lying'! Looking back on it we were horrible to him.....god aren't kids cruel!?!

    I think another all time classic is a Novell employee named Randy Bender. No, I kid you not!

    Randy Bumgardner was a funny but true name of some American guy they talked about on Have I Got News For You when Jerry Springer hosted I believe....omg if there's another poor sod with the same name. Have their parents no shame or sense!?
