Unfortunate normal names
Wednesday, Sep 29, 2004
It must be moderately frustrating to have the name 'Kimberly Clark'. Every week people would say, 'Have we met? your name sounds awfully familiar.'

I imagine there are a lot of names out there that are perfectly ordinary, but are troublesome for less obvious reasons than overlap with a star or dictator.

If you like it, please share it.
