Funny names are neither easy nor hard to come by. But, “What’s in a name,” argues Shakespeare, “That which we call a rose/ By any other name would smell as sweet.” That is what the famous poet would tell us in his lyrical tale of the two infamous “star-crossed” lovers, Romeo and Juliet.
If we would extrapolate this, we could say their names were standing in the way of their mutual love and passion.
Truth is, not everyone in life is gifted with the right name. Some names are tragic, reminiscent of some old discord and some can even get you in trouble. Other names are so funny that they might even embarrass the wearer and be part of an article like this one.
Below is a list of 101 funny names (updated 2022)
Some people with unfortunate, too hilarious names to the point of embarrassment choose to change them and go through all the legal fuss to do so.
They’re the most determined. Some of them, though, never change their names and they just go with the flow. These people are gold. They’re not afraid of any public shaming. They do not care; they have a name and that is enough for them.
These people are untouchable and, lucky for us, these 101 people below are part of that category and decided to keep their names. Here are the funniest names ever:
