There are loads of threads out there for stupid names.......

What about those people you have met.....Real live people, that have names that made you jealous of their name, simply for it's cool factor.

Ex friends and acquaintances:

Old Friend: Tony Rocket......Rocket!? are you kidding me!!? Your name could be Homer, but that surname would STILL make you cool!

Ex workmate: Jason Steel.....James Bond would kill for that upgrade. (And he has a license to do that)

Old acquaintance: Jenny Rainbow...... Are you kidding me!? Do you crap puppies?

Old friend: Carol Hoare.....Sorry Carol, that's not a cool name at all.

Old acquaintance: Adam Baum (spoken Atom Bomb). He was about 6'3" and built like a brick s**thouse. He definitely lived up to the name. You didn't mess with him.

Real people I actually know:

Jack Knopf (swear to God)
Mike Hawke (as in a bar, "Let me introduce you to Mike Hawke")
Steele Magnet (owns the local motel)

These guys live in my town.

Couple guys at my work...

Brian Griffin. Looks nothing like the character.
Richard Meister. Pretty sure he doesn't go by Dick. But it's fun to pretend he does.

That's the best I got.

I used to work with a Michael Hawk and a Michael Hunt, both of em went by Mike. I went to high school with a Harry Dick. And I met a guy named Nimrod Pantz (I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean in Hebrew what it means in English). No joke.
