These names were talked about in the book from a couple years back "Freakonomics" in the chapter on names. Since it came out, it seems like everybody knows them... The chapter also mentioned two kids named Winner and Loser. Loser became a high ranking police officer and his brother, Winner, became a criminal with a history of like 30 charges.

And yes the spelling is correct
I've heard stories of these two. A friend's mother was their teacher in 2nd grade or something. I thought it was BS, but seeing as how we're both from the Buffalo area...

Wow...just wow.

I knew of a person back in elementary school whose name was Her Magesty Moonlight MacMillan. I have no idea what they went by.

There was/is a doctor in my hometown named Dr. Goodnight, but sadly he isn't an anesthesiologist so the joke ends there.

We had a local football player here in the Cincy area (OSU recruit) named Mister Simpson. That's right, his first name is Mister. He has a brother named Sir, and a sister named Misses.

I just found out that in our tiny little community, there are TWO Dr. Paynes! Unrelated. One of whom is my new PCP.

The other one is....

Wait for it...

Well, he's a proctologist. Would YOU let Dr. Payne examine your colon?

My wife has a friend who named his son Wolverine Logan. For the longest time she thought it was just a nickname for the rambunctious kid. He better hope he can fight with a name like that.
