I taught for four-plus years, and I've seen every kind of name: variant spellings, uncommon languages, stuff the parents just made up. And with the internet, you see an even wider variety of names from every place and culture. So I barely notice unusual names anymore.

However, reading some random website, there was a section of testimonial letters from customers saying how much they liked the product. One letter was signed with a name that immediately caught my eye as a pipe smoker:

"Tanshell."

The ultimate name for your kid if you love Dunhill pipes!

"This is my daughter, Tanshell, and her sister, Virginia. Albert and Carter are both at football practice."

So when my friends gave me the nickname of "dottle", it wasn't a complement?

I feel sorry for the pipe smoker's son who gets named Poker!

I once knew a girl named Virginia, not an uncommon name. She was in college with me, we were physics students. Skinny, aerial, with thick glasses and strange affectations. I never associated her with pipe tobacco...
