If you had to have a stupid name...

...which of the following names would you choose?

"You called your son Mars Bar!  What a stupid name!
I called my son Fried Egg."
This week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma is based on a chapter from the book 'True Or False: A Light-Hearted Collection of 100 Facts And Bluffs' by Charles Fudgemuffin.  The chapter reports on strange names that, for various reasons, weird parents have given their children.  Some of the names covered in the book are:

1) Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii
2) @
3) Many Volcanoes Erupt Moldy Jam Sandwiches Unusually Niffy Phew
4) Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116
5) Mars Bar

...and yes, that fourth name is not a spelling mistake!

Anyway, if you had to have one of the above names, and you weren't allowed to change it by deed poll to something more normal, which of the above names would you choose to be stuck with?

For the record, only three of the above names were actual real names given to kids by their parents - they do appear in a 'true or false' book after all - but the three names which are real might surprise you.

'True Or False: A Light-Hearted Collection of 100 Facts And Bluffs' is available for kindle from Amazon, and the chapter on weird names also contains explanations as to why the parents in question chose such strange names for their children:

This 'Would You Rather?' dilemma was written by Charles Fudgemuffin who luckily doesn't have weird parents so fortunately he has a perfectly ordinary name!  Check out the Charles Fudgemuffin blog:
