The Two Ronnies

I’ve been trawling through sketches about names recently, just because, and there’s one which has stuck in my mind:

Why? Because there are some absolutely fabulous names mentioned in amongst the jokes:

Aristotle

Clive

Daphne

Ebenezer

Ezra

Freddie

Humbert

Ignatius

Jeremy

Malcolm

Monty

Otis

Sidney

Wally*

Any favourites? I’m rather partial to Monty, and maybe even Jeremy.

NB: Wally is an old colloquialism for fool

One thought on “The Two Ronnies

  1. It’s funny, because in the 1970s (?), many of these names were obviously considered slightly comical, and today quite a few them are coming into fashion again, like Ezra, Sidney, Otis, Freddie and Monty.

    Makes you wonder what “funny” names of today will be fashionable in 40 years.
