Park Bench

A few moments ago I was surprised to learn that there exists a man called Park Bench.

I find it hard to believe anyone would be given that name during birth registration Huh

Re: Park Bench

Maybe that's just his acting name.

Re: Park Bench

One would hope so.

However you do hear of people being named after the place they were born.

I recall seeing the name 'Rip Torn' in the credits of quite a few films.

Re: Park Bench

Perhaps he is of Korean origin... as the name Park seems to be quite prevalent over there, in much the same way as Smith is here... and they address people with the surname first ...

An Irish Rugby League player (who played prop forward so not a lad to argue with) was called Wayne Kerr.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_Kerr

Re: Park Bench

I came across an "Orson Carte" once, and down in Kent there are two places quite near to the other that in combination are doubtful "Badgers Mount" and "Pratts Bottom".Shocked

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.
