Site lists 'unfortunate' names of Britons

LONDON, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- A British parenting Web site said its research uncovered the "Most Unfortunate Names in Britain," including Barb Dwyer, Justin Case and Stan Still.

TheBabyWebsite.com said its online research discovered Britons bearing the names Hazel Nutt, Barry Cade, Chris Cross and Paige Turner, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

"When the parents of some of those people mentioned named their children, many probably didn't even realize the implications at the time," a spokesman for the Web site said. "There must be tremendous embarrassment every time they have to introduce themselves to anyone, especially to a crowd. Even their teachers must have had to hold back their smiles sometimes. Parents really do need to think carefully though when choosing names for their children."

The Web site said strange names are not limited to Britain -- some of the more odd monikers it found for U.S. residents include Carrie Oakey, Anna Prentice and Bill Board.
