Though probably considered extremely juvenile, most of us have a fascination with weird and wonderful names and when they happen to be of real people and real places it is even better. So we're used to Ben Dover and Ann Other (a favourite of banks everywhere) but how do we react when faced with the name Bertha Venation? Or Nosmo King? Or the surgeon Dr De'ath? With chapters full of interesting stories and anecdotes about strange celebrity names, really long and meaningless names and even the weirdest names in sports this book is for trivia lovers everywhere.
