Oh,MCXLIII, how poignant is the name Antonio Sweet Failure (and yet it makes me smile). You would have to have a very strong personality and ambition to overcome the negative expectations of that name.

We had a south african girl in our primary school called Zebra Stifnics.

Everyone called her Zebra 'Stiffnickers'!!!

I honestly attended the same school as a boy named Richard Holder (and yes, he did go by the short version of his first name ). What were his parents thinking? Did they think it would be character building?

I had a class a few years ago with a James Watt, Rodey (Rod) Stewart and Mohammed Ali all in the same class! The first day I called out the register, it started with Mo, then went on to Rod Stewart... then by the time I got to James Watt, I was convinced that the class were taking the p*ss; I half expected Mr Bean to turn up. But no, the names were right enough!

I've also taught Annette Curten, Lisa Stonehouse and Ronald MacDonald. Then I had some travellers' kids; Onion the first year, followed by Celery the year after that, then the twins, Carrot and Sorrel. Actually they were lovely kids!
