However... I must say in High School we had a good laugh... My JV Basketball coach's name was Dick Ball. :roll: (no really... it was!)
The story gets a little more unbelievable when I tell you that one of the other JV coaches was Knute Rockne... (no really... he was! -- his grandfather was the famous Notre Dame coach... and he was named after him)

A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with four young mothers and their small children. He observed, "You all have obsessions." To the first mother, he said, "You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy." He turned to the second mom. "Your obsession is money. Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny. He turned to the third mom, " Your obsession is alcohol. It manifests itself in your child's name, Brandy." At this point, the fourth mother got up, took her little boy by the hand and whispered, "Come on, Dick, we're going home."
I kinda hope she changed her last name when she got married.
I knew a couple where the wife's name was Maria Jose (Mary Joseph) and the husband's name was Jose Maria (Joseph Mary). In a country where everything is either male or female (no neuter gender words), I thought that was very strange.
