weirdest surname you have ever come across.

What is the weirdest surname you have ever come across? It could be indian as well as non-indian.

In my opinion marathis have weirdest surname in india ( sorry Sunit and others, no offence meant). Biharis may qualify for weirdest first name but marathis take the cherry when it comes to surname.
e.g. : I have heard of, Dhote, Dhomne, Phadkar ( dutta the famous cricketer), Patkar, Kangale ( u wont believe a bank manager), kharab, Lele, Khare, Khote, Gaydhane, Linge.... list is endless.
Then there is Salman Butt from pakistan. A Jack Russell from England. Matsikeyneri ( cant spell) from zimbabwe apart Olonga, Mbwanga etc.
Even Sindhis have interesting surname.
Nagvani, Advani, Khushlani etc.

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

Have two coworkers with the last names of Wojciechowski and Sczcepanksi. In case you're wondering, the names are pronounced "Voi-shove-ski" and "Che-pan-ski".

Then, there is Xiang-he Qiao, whose name is actually pronounced "Shiang-ha Chao"

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

4th spot goes to 'Lodha', very dangerous surname - naam hi kaafi hai, nothing to add to it, 'Aur lodha ji, kaise hai aap ?' , hehe,

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

There was this guy Mr Robert Lund who donated a lot of money to a women's charity organization in India. When he came to India, the women's organization had organized a facilitation ceremony. Snippets from the speech given by chairwoman:

'Aaj hamara sowbhagya hai ki Lundji hamare beech mein hai.....'

'..aaj Lundji ki kripa se hamare sanstha ki kanyaein bahut khush hai...'

Re: weirdest surname you have ever come across.

There are the usual foreign names that sound dirty/funny in India - the lunds, laudas and chuts of the world.

But there are Indian names that sound funny in India. Thats what blows my mind .. I know this guy - and I swear - I am not lying - His last name is Tatti. (there was another guy whose last name was Thati - but still pronounced Tatti).

I mean - jeez - I laugh whenever I see this dude. How can you walk around the place with a name like Tatti. I would head straight for the courtroom to get a name change.
