Mocking the affflicted - no fun, but that's why God gave us Deed Poll.

How about these surnames:

Tiplady
Brolly
Bone

Anyone come across some?

You'd better be careful.

...if you press it, they will come.

I know of several Messers Longbottom - a well respected Lincolnshire name (also found in other counties to the north).

Do foreign names count? There was a programme on TV the other day with a M. Bastard

Caroline in the Archers was called Bone as her maiden name (the irony being that she had a reputation for being anything other than a maiden, and so Bone may have been a very suitable surname in a transatlantic slang sort of way)

There's a Nth London headteacher called Penelope Penny. But I suppose that's a married name and it would be a bit strong to not marry someone because your new name would be mildly amusing.
