What is in a name? It's only your main title for life. Your name is something that precedes you before you even enter a room. So you would think parents would put some extra thought into the process, especially if one has a "unique" last name. Of course over the years people have taken it upon themselves to legally change names, and that can be something even more.... special. But often times many mixture of names turn out pretty rad and with a good story.

Redditor u/Dull-Ad-6956 wanted to discuss what names maybe making the best of lists for the next decade by asking.... What Is The Coolest Name you've ever Heard?

Used to work with a guy named Wolfgang Hellfire.

ETA: He was exactly as cool as he sounds.

Killer

I worked with a guy who had a surname Killsenemy.

Pretty straight forward not to f**k with that family. Haha.

OldDirtyBaxter

I worked with a guy with the surname Mankiller. Might be scarier because your guy kills his enemies, this guy just kills.

Rager....

Used to work in a flower shop. Had someone order online for a large vase to be delivered in one of the richer neighborhoods. The name?

Susan Deathrage.

When I informed my mother, who works at the local bank, about this she delightfully informed me that she often helps the matriarch of the family, a very sweet little old lady named Mrs Deathrage.

I once met a guy who told me his name was Van Halen. I called bull crap, but then he showed me his driver's license.

This is called an aptonym. My favorite example: a medical examiner who performs autopsies named Dr. Posthumus.

Illuminated...

I kid you not, my kid has a boy in her class called Atlas Power.

EDIT - just asked her about him and this was her reply.

"He's so weird. Always going on about the Illuminati"

Atlas is 11yrs old.

If Patrick Kilpatrick kills himself and or another Patrick I am calling Time-travel on his parents.

I went to school with a guy with the same name (not the actor). Last name with 2 L's (Killpatrick) always thought it was a cool name.

Doctor is Out....

I used to have a friend who's dad was a doctor. His name was, and I kid you not- Doctor Payne.

-Aperture_scientist-

There's a doctor's surgery I used to go to that had the names of all doctors on the door - their full, non-diminutive names.

Dr Elizabeth Johnson. Not Liz Johnson.

Dr Michael Ramsay. Not Mike Ramsay.

Dr Jessica Xiao. Not Jess Xiao.

Well, almost all of them had their full first names.

Except one:

Dr Ron McDonald.

The names of the authors of this paper combined, are the bomb. Sounds like they accidentally used their porn names for this publication.

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.

"People who knowingly have slept with someone who was in a relationship, why did you do it?"
