You could change it to something xtians find less offensive. Like "Hitler."

Most Xtians don't hate it. Their in love with it. Like it confirming some sort of blood line.

It plays out like this.

RE: My unfortunate last name.
Does anyone remember phone books?? I used to entertain myself by looking up funny names and laughing hysterically. Some of the last names I remember. Lipschitz, Christmas and Turnupseed.

I remember there was a politician or some sort of city official down in Los Angeles who was a doctor and his last name was Doctor. Once in awhile the press would interview this guy and on the TV screen the'd have his name listed as Dr. Doctor.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: My unfortunate last name.
For what it's worth, at least none of you are named Rape. When I was in grad school, a Mormon colleague hosted game night. On occasion we had missionaries there, and once we had a kid who in a few weeks was going to be sent out on his mission. I asked if maybe it was pronounced another way, but nope, it was rape. So for about two years, somewhere, there was a kid knocking on old people's doors going, "Hello my name is Elder Rape and I want to talk to you about Jesus."

Need to think of a witty signature.

"It's nice in here, indoors..."

"No that's the one Jesus told about the Samaritan helping someone else."

This had me laughing nonstop, thanks!

Also laughed at the Younger Rape thing. It weirds me out, tbh, that the Mormons call their missionaries "Elder". It's like, "no, you're 19 years old. You're not elder anything." But only the men, the women are "Sister". Tongue

Also towards the OP, my first name is spelled with either one L or two Ls; I spell it with one. This has not stopped even some relatives from mis-spelling my name for 30 years now. Yes

Need to think of a witty signature.

If he was catholic he would have been Father Rape. Tongue

RE: My unfortunate last name.
I just remembered. My father was a elementary school principal and his school secretary was named Mary Butts. The kids sure had fun with that name.

Since this seems to be of German origin, it comes pretty close to one German term for "Wanker". Only an "s" between "Wich" and "Mann" is needed to go there. So yes, I'm pretty sure you can fuck that name up.
