Joke names, phonetic puns & prank names

21st March 2007 |By | 6 Comments

Writers and journalists have amused both themselves and their readers by inventing humorous names over the years. The joke can be visual, like using initials as in M.T. Head or relating to social and professional titles as in Miss Trust, Sir Parr Stitt or Private Part.

    If you want a good list of joke Irish names, check out Red Peters’ “The Two Gay Irishmen”. The obvious joke involving Gerald Fitzpatrick and Patrick Fitzgerald is in there, but there are so many more, it’s totally worth it.
