One of the more <sarcasm alert> charming<end sarcasm alert> situations is where someone named his children John, James, Jonathan, Jeremiah, Moses, Morris, Maurice, plus some other names like Abigail, Benjamin, Theodate and Obed. Searchers are spending time with magnifying glasses trying to work out who was at home the night the census taker came round.

Really. It's like the guy knew this would cause problems later and did it deliberately. The only one I know offhand that is worse is George Foreman.
