I have a friend whose brother is called Rodger and he insisted that it is Rodger and not Roger. When i asked him why adding the “d”, he said his parents insisted on adding the “d” because they thought the kid was special.
I am not sure he is aware of it but rodgering means shagging someone in slang dictionary and was related to Roger Moore as “the spy who rogers more” when he played Bond. I didn’t know myself until i googled it but that should provide a good explanation of his name.
Funnily enough, my friend is called Richard but without the “T”. He’s no special kid, at least according to his parents heh!
There are a lot of funny names in Lebanon, with people still calling their kids Hitler and Mussolini or Malfoufe and Khasse. According to WikiAnswers, the weirdest and funniest name in Lebanon is Adonis Zibara.
back when i was still in lebanon i went to a primary school in tripoli , and one of my classmates was called talje sabouneh 😛 and i’m not making this up! 😛 apparently she was from one of the villages close to the area 😛
Richard doesn’t have a T in it anyway… If you know someone called Ritchard then he’s the equivalent to Rodger
Check out the film Rodger Dodger
lol yeah Richard doesn’t have a T!
I know Richard doesn’t have a “T”. I was implying they didn’t name him like the name is spelled Ritchard!
Back in school in Kuwait, a friend of a friend’s was called “George Bush al Mutairi”! Apparently his dad was so proud of the US helping Kuwait with the Gulf War, he named his kid after George Bush sr.
