Incredible names

I had to email a guy at work today called Alpha Barry.



Had a linked in request today from someone with the first name: Monopoly.

And one from someone a few weeks ago with the surname: Cobbledick.

No way am I giving their full names.


Picasso’s full name was Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso. Bit of a habit of long names, the Spanish.

could it be a nickname from before a second Barry joined the company?

That’s awesome.

I’m currently helping a couple apply for a property we manage. When I met them, they introduced themselves: “hi, I’m [generic male name] and this is [name of the sidekick in my favourite movie of all time]”… in my head I was thinking “aww if only [generic male name] was actually [name of the lead character in my favourite movie of all time]”.

Anyway, it turns out that [generic male name] is actually his middle name. And that his first name is actually [name of the lead character in my favourite movie of all time]. I’m dying to find out whether he started being known as [generic male name] after starting a relationship with [sidekick name] to avoid wise-arses like me making really obvious jokes.

I’m presuming these were the names of the FC Barcelona starting XI when he was born
