From Shlomo
My dad had a friend named Willy Dick, his wife’s name, no kidding, was Aida. 

From Esskar
Hey - you forgot the most important Jewish name that sucks

From Milla

HAN(D)FLING? c'mon now. what was grandpa thinking when he came over to Ellis Island?

From brudbabe

From Asher
I was speaking to friends about naming children and they mentioned an Israeli couple that recently had twins. They chose two harmless popular names that otherwise wound not cause a stir. Nonetheless in this day and age when people have to use their names in places outside of Kefar Saba It might be a good idea to check what the name means in other languages not as popular as Hebrew. I am sure Shai and Alon will make a lot of friends.
Here are a few more names to think about.

Problematic Names for Multi-cultural (Hebrew/English) People FIRST NAMES:
Shai - שי - A bashful gift?

Alon - אלון - A loner with leaves?

Mor- מור - additional fragrances

Moran - מורן - Are you stupid?

Osnat - אוסנת - Your nose running?

Tefat- טפת - Might be Solomon's daughter, but come on?

Tahel - תהל -Ta what?

Dudu - דודו - Guess

Dikla - דיקלה - A palm for her

Dedi - דדי - Lively name

Yoni - יוני - If you have been East you know what I'm talking about

Shitrit - שיטרית - duh

Asspiss - אספיס - This is a real name

Pines - פינס - Pronounced…

Can you beat them?

From One Jewess
Suher: usually (and deliberately) mispronounced as Sewer, while actual pronunciation is Shure (so I had mine re-arranged!)

this one is really the worst: Fucksman! i swear it's a real last name - i saw it in the newspaper! and last week this chassidish man came into the store where i work and told me that his last name was Sprung. i couldn't keep a straight face! and then there's also those poor people with the last name Jerkofsky! When i was in school we had a substitute named Mrs. Lipshitz. one of my friends came up with the perfect line for that one: "if her lip sh**ts, my a** talks"!!! And, last but not least, one of my former classmates who i hated (who in hindsight i pity): Kraindy Lokshin. what kind of parents name they're kid kraindy? or keep the last name lokshin?

From Danielle
Sorry but my last name takes the cake -
try pronouncing that
(and no my last name is not shprizter, splitzinger, spritxginger...)

From Niki Wiener
Attention Nate Wiener: 
Dude, I'm with you in your pain, at least i get to change my name in the near future!

From YM
You forgot Jerkowitz

Azulay means "almana zona ugrusha lo yikach"
 it's a Cohen name. not a bad name at all.

Frum Scott Free:
"the stupid name theorum"
Since the the end of the second world war, american Jews have been searching for the entymology behind their inane family names. I put forth to you that these names were meant to be a racist joke -a prank so secret that only the the Immigration officials at Ellis Island were given clearance. Without further ado.

From Avi Balser:
Yes, this is my name:
Avi Balser - Often pronounced as the plural of "ball" + "er"

Shlomo Pines - maimonidean scholar. the name is pronounced pin-NEZ.


You left out Blatter! For example, consider the unlucky couple Duddie and Peshy Blatter. And the rebbe who is describing the wild Blatter child to a co-teacher and says, "That Blatter was out of control today." And the plumber - "I think the Blatters have a leak" ... I'm really sorry if any Blatters are reading this. I know some Blatters, and I think you are great people, but ... you really should change your name.

From Matty:
What about these classics: Dick, Mindick,and Schlanger (I personally know one of each.)

from Seth again - Einstien, Spielberg, Freud, Soloviechick, (these are names you have to live up to)
