I don't think it's a common name here.
he's only little!
never Micky, never Mikey, Mick.
dad is called Malcolm but he's always hated it and has always insisted on being called Bill. For years, however, he has been known to my brother and his mates as Malcydoos, because it annoys him basically.
or 'Robert!' when my mum is cross with him.
but I don't think of him as Rick because it reminds me of Rick Lemon in Adrian Mole
just pops to me though
I call him Tim
but everyone calls him Terry
was his nickname 'rotten cunt'?
just "Tel" really
but with one R.
which is the coolest fucking name ever.
that its elegant simplicity will make it a hit.
the CRAINE thread make the weekly email?
But with 2 Rs. Garry. I think it's a bit of crap name to be honest.
'my dad is called...'
'my dad was called...' is also fine.
Call him Andy and I'll kill you.
My mum used to call him Pierre.
My dad IS called Pierre and my mum used to call him... er... Pierre.
He doesn't look much like a Robin.
I just looked my dad up on the internet
"After graduating B.Sc and Ph.D in chemistry from the University of St Andrew, Dr Bill Macdonald joined ICI Plastics Division in 1980. He was initially involved in research into advanced materials, primarily liquid crystal polymers, and moved into the Polyester Films Business in the early 1990’s. The Films Business was sold to DuPont and Bill MacDonald is currently a Business Research Associate in DuPont Teijin Films , a 50:50 joint venture between DuPont and Teijin. He has collaborated extensively with academia during this time and has sat on the EPSRC Materials Evaluation Panel. He has coauthored 38 papers, several book chapters and has filed 12 patents."
Beat that, folks.
but everybody calls him Tom.
Exciting stuff eh? seriously he would kill you.
could get out his chair
you come into his house, insult his wife and sit in his chair?
when he finds out, there will be hell to pay.
it's the council's
"excessively or unctuously flattering, ingratiating, servile, etc"
I don't think I am being that
you utter cunt. I hope you get hit by a bus.
think I'm seeing your mum today
insulting his chair, sitting on his house, then coming into his wife,
Not a girl named 'Brian'.
A portable vacuum
a mini bar
a holiday weekend
a years supply of shepherd's pie!

My other dad is called Aaron
That would be cool.
he's not a teddy bear.
Is called Martin.
but everyone calls him Tony

do you have a nickname for him?
He was pretty pissed off when credit card companies started using his name on all their sample credit cards, but he got over it.
you're ruining my plan.
have a dad called Montgomery or Archibald or something?
is that humorous enough?
was called Archibald.
He is Irish
i really like that name
signs off in cards as 'Big D xox'
and looks like trevor brooking.
He is also called Susan 2 days a week.
middle name sefton
his mum was gonna call him cadwalada or summat like dat
i hav a weird family
I'm going to call my fist son Dudley Browne.
I'm surprised more people's aren't called John on here.
My dad's actually called Ernest but, for some reason I'll never truly understand, he makes everyone call him Roger...
My uncle calls himself by his middle name, because his first name is the same as his father's.
... His parents started calling him Roger from an early age. As I say, I've never fully understood it.
..was called Fred. But he didn't like that name, and insisted that everybody called him Horace.
Going from bad to worse if you ask me!
William. My mum used to call him Willy. He is indeed a prick.
Robin, coincidentally so is my boyfriend. My mates Mum said "Do you think it's a phallic thing?"
surprisingly unusual name
is it wrong I don't know his birth name?
this is funny because he is only one letter away from being a famous hollywood actress.
john crawford...i say friend...yeah if we met up again we would be friends i'm sure
although everyone, including my friends call him Dad. I used to call him Mum when I was little, the nightie and pink rubber gloves were a tad misleading.
Because that would have been just weird. DJ Scotch Egg calls him Dad as well!
or Big Al
^why has no one said this yet? It's a hilarious answer to a dull question.
future generations will use it as a resource when writing the history of the social board.
'Arise Jingo, Son of Bamos, Son of Peter!'
but we all call him alfie.
My dad is called Brian.
His middle name is James, and my step mum always called him BJ, which I found a bit weird. Y'know, in front of the kids.
is my Dad's name!
also my middle name.
It`s also my middle name. and the name of loads of other Dissers dads, or so it seems.
is called Patrick, his middle names are Charles and Morrish.
and his last name is AINSLEY and his office used to be next door to his friend and co-worker MIKE HAINES...confusing given it was a school and naughty people used to get sent to either my dad or the other mike to get told off.
Jem to his aunts etc
Jerry to his work mates
A couple of years ago I seemed to switch to being more informal than "dad" and treating him like a friend or associate, I don't know if this was a good thing or not.
or mike, depending
'John' was the one he used.
shortened to Joe
Shortened to Andy by people he works with.
i think that's the right amount of 'L's, i'm not sure.
read this all the way to the bottom
my dad was also called cyril AND I got there first.
Obviously I always just call him Dad, so I sometimes forget he has a comedy name.
middle name Ernest! what a middle name!
...with one 'n', so definately not named after 'the menace'
my stepdad - the first Mark on this thread.
yes thats right, lenny henry.
My Mum is called Pat.
I hate Eastenders for making my family a joke.
that everyone has replied now so I can close voting.
dad calls himself Ethelbert from time to time. So count 'Ethelbert', please.
but all documentation is Archibald.
He is not bald.
of thread length vs. posts actually read in said thread, this is probably the champion.
The kind of thread where people sneak in, post their typings as quickly as possible and get the hell out. Like throwing a grenade into a Viet Cong foxhole or something. Except far, far less exciting.
although I think it might be Tom or Thomas
my middle name is the not so difficult to pronounce spanish translation - Jorge.
Everyone just calls him Jorge anyway.
is called Berend. Berend backwards is Dnereb, in case you were interested.
will you next threads be
'what's your surname?'
'what's your mum's maiden name?'
'when IS your birthday?'
'Who do you bank with??'
;p my father's name is MUD.
Bryan Thomas Humphreys
mais non. i am belgian.
It suits him. Our surname is Bennett and when he answers the phone "Arthur Bennett", people often think he's saying "half a minute!" and count to thirty before introducing themselves.
why would anyone call a child nigel? i'm convinced he was an adult from birth. no child could be called nigel, it just doesn't WORK!
Related... I remember watching "The Ugly Duckling" and Bill Odie showed a kid-picture of himself, it blew my mind - things just didn't add up...
"Hasn't he always been old? Then how did that happen?"
This was a big moment.
Now beat that!
though Raymond is his first name. However, everyone knows him as Monty, but I don't know how he got his nickname.
Now he's called Philippa. Tehe. No, he's still called Philip. :(
Though everyone calls him Tony...
This is derived from his middle-name, Anthony.
I love how all these names are incredibly Dad-like.
i want to try and get lynton into my kids name somewere.even though my dad absolutly hates it.i think its kinda cool
and he hates it if anyone spells it incorrectly!
I know this isn't funny.
his middle name was frederick. he was a bit of a wanker.
Dad, sometimes Fitha
Is that him?
or Pat (uncle pat and his golden labby dog to my cousins - sung to the tune of postman pat)
an unusual kinda question......
but he's called Andy
say it again!!
(lion king reference) is he relly called Mufasa?
WHAT! WHAT. DID. YOU SAY!
sad sad sad.
:D :D :D
im leaving it as all over tit cos i thought it was funny
that's great. I kinda figured that - I was doing so for everyone else's benefit.
but i just needed to make it clear. i know my lion king. okay?
My older brother and my older sister's boyfriend had the same name.
As a child, i believed that you changed your name several times as you got older.
Your mothers nam, where you were born, pets name and bank login number.
His nickname is 'Wacker'. Yes. Wacker. Nobody knows where it came from but his dad called him that when he was toddler and it's stuck and that's what everyone refers to him as.
He comes from a really working class family so they were all a bit regretful about calling him Julian in the first place so Wacker seemed a much more sensible, down-to-earth name. Apparently.
my dad is called Doug.
(thread bumped in honour of the song performed last night by Her Parents)
but probably you should sell that song to Clintons or whoever so they can make fathers day cards that play it when they're opened
