Interesting Names: “Cunnett” & A Mouth To Match — Which Gets Him 7-Months In Prison.

I guess with that name the ‘c-word’ must just trip from your tongue.

I was not familiar with that name.

It is an old British name that even appears in the Domesday Book. A variant, that makes sense, is “Connett”. Both the names are believed to be from the Latin for “Constantius”. Other than that folks have no idea what the name means.

Just amused me that he, with that name, would have such a potty mouth. 7-months in jail should sure cool his jets. Not sure how that impacts his marriage let alone his honeymoon.

The dangers of drinking and flying.

People With Interesting Names: “Erica Houskeeper” of “HappyVermont.com”

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. An e-mail from “Revels North”.

Click to access her Website “HappyVermont.com”.

I first saw it, in a flash, on an e-mail I got from “Revels North” (first image above). I read it, subconsciously, with the ‘e’ inserted and thought “Wow, what an interesting name“.

I saved the e-mail because I wanted to research the name. When I went back I discovered that there was NO ‘e’ BUT it sure looks and sounds like it did. I am not sure how they pronounce it.

I, of course, Googled it. Much to my surprise and chagrin I couldn’t find what it means or where it came from — though I will confess I did not spend much time.

I, however, discovered that Erica is not alone and it could be a married name. There is an actor with that name — on IMDb.com.

I think it is German but I could be wrong. German for that duty is haushälterin.

I am going to send her this link and ask her whether she can help me with her name. I think it is neat. I like it.

People With Interesting Names: A Weatherman Named “Ken Weathers”.

by Anura Guruge

Click here for the U.K. “Daily Mail” original.

Made my day when I saw in the U.K. “Daily Mail” this morning — the “Daily Mail” (which I have read most of my life) being the first thing I read every morning, while still lying in bed.

Wonder whether his name ‘Weathers’ influenced his desire to become a ‘weatherman’? Wonder if many comment about it … at all?

But now … it gets more ‘amusing’.

Who would have thought. A castrated ram! Poor Mr. Weathers. Wonder if he knows that?

People With Interesting Names: Would YOU Handover Your Life Savings To A “Rude”?

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and admire here. From “marketwatch.com”. Search ‘rude’.

Cracked me up when I read the story on “marketwatch.com“. 

You have to have both magical chutzpah & huge kahunas to be able to run a ponzi scheme with a name “Rude”. I am in awe. Wow.

It gets better. The article says he had excellent ‘soft skills’ and was non-threatening. I guess he was NEVER rude.

I had never heard of ‘it’ as a name.

Nearly 9,000 folks in the U.S. Wow.

Per the last U.S. census we are supposed to have 151,671 last names in the U.S.

Click to ENLARGE. AGAIN from: mynamestats.com.

So, 4,553 in the ranking is kind of down there — BUT way more than I would have suspected.


I hope that they will not be too rude to him when he is prison.

People With Interesting Names: Nick Confessore Of “The New York Times”.

by Anura Guruge


What a great name. Saw him (and his name) on TV Wednesday morning. 

“Confessore” — ‘confessor’ in Italian.

Not a common name in the U.S. According to the last U.S. census there were less than 250 people, living in the U.S., with that last name.

What a great name for an investigative reporter. Make them confess.

Would love to know the origins of the name. Definitely some clerical connotations — or one of his distant ancestors, way back, was a noted ‘Confessor of the (Christian) Faith’.

I wonder if he knows where this name comes from.

Anywho … I just wanted to share.

Have been meaning to document names like this, that catch my fancy, so that others too can ponder and marvel.
