...comes "Appropriately Named," a blog that points out all of those names for people and businesses that are just too good to be true. My favorite? Dr. William Friend... proctologist. And to your left is Larry Sprinkle, weatherman. If only he was a urologist. Mostly this is an excuse to get you to share your own in the comments - so have at it!

My pediatrician's name was Dr. Butcher. There was also a dentist in town named Dr. Slaughter.

I once knew a guy named Richard Painter. He changed it by taking his middle name and his wife's last name.

It's not exactly "appropriately named", but it's funny: there's a patent law firm named "Harness, Dickey & Pierce". Offices in Ann Arbor, MI, St. Louis, MO, & Washington DC. Their domain is their initials, HDP dot com. They don't exactly emphasizes the "Pierce" in their name, I wonder why not? ;)

My grandparents of the same last name (Harness) used to own one of the top Arabian horse ranches in the state. I always knew we weren't the only people with that perfect of a deal going on.
