Frogley, Cockhead and Crutch : A Celebration of Humorous Names from Oxfordshire's History, Paperback / softback Book

Frogley, Cockhead and Crutch : A Celebration of Humorous Names from Oxfordshire's History Paperback / softback

Description

Willy Cockhead had to live with his name. So too did countless others lumbered with ridiculous monikers, safely hidden away in Oxford's records and censuses - until now. And what names! Some rhyme (Dick Thick), a few are odd (Silly Waters), others you have to say out loud (Rhoda Turtle) and some are just groan-worthy (Blenda Belcher). Uncovered by local author Paul Sullivan and accompanied with strange-but-true anecdotes, this entertaining volume of baffling, ill-thought-out and just plain rude examples champions the people and places of Oxfordshire that got saddled with the daftest of names.
