Are you Jo King?

Tim Burr, Justin Case, Barb Dwyer, Stan Still.

These names may sound like bad jokes, but they do exist, according to an online article. Some researchers have scoured through phone records in the UK and the US and unearthed them.

Imagine growing up as someone with one of these names. Imagine having to introduce yourself to a crowd or a class. Imagine how they will smirk, howl, or make fun of the name. As poor Stan Still recalled: "When I was in the RAF my commanding officer used to shout, 'Still Still, get a move on' and roll about laughing."

Here are some more of those unfortunate names:

Terry Bull
Paige Turner
Mary Christmas
Anna Sasin
Doug Hole
Hazel Nutt
Pearl Button
Barry Cade
Carrie Oakey
Priti Manek
Anna Prentice
Bill Board
Jo King

Jo King? Are you joking? Well, this is exactly the question you should ask your parents!
