Weird names

We've all heard about Texas philanthropist Ima Hogg (who, contrary to popular belief, did not have a sister named Ura), but that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to strange names, according to the numerous comments on the topic over at the Crazy Hotel Workers blog. Those registration forms seem to be rife with oddities. While many of them made me blush just a tad, my favorite is Justin Case. What's the weirdest name you've come across?

(Thanks to the MeCo listserv for the pointer a few days ago--this was a fun way to start the day!)
