I was watching something with a person named CCH Pounder in it.  I mean, what's up with that?  Her name is Carol Christine Hilaria Pounder.  Wouldn't Carol suffice?  I mean, it sucks having a noun for a last name, but CCH Pounder sounds like something you'd buy from a farm implement dealer.

Or that cute girl on Friday the 13th the TV series, her name is listed as "Robey" in the credits.  Like Robby the Robot or something.  Her first name is Louise;  does she hate Louise that much?

Any more you folks can think of?

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is another one that bugs me.  For chrissakes, your last name is 6 syllables long, can we drop the middle name already?  You're only two syllables short of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Emilio Estevez a funny name in my book when you consider it's the name of a person that looks 100% caucasion.

At least EMILIO kept his father's real surname, unlike that woman-beating turd, his brother, CHARLIE SHEEN

I'll toss in an easy one: Whoopi Goldberg. The odd thing is that the name does seem to suit her better than Caryn Johnson.

There are some actual names that would just look funny beside a movie title, even though they are the  names the actors were given at birth, for example:
"The Sands of Iwo Jima" starring Marion Robert Morrison
"To Catch a Thief" starring Archibald Alexander Leach
These two guys are favorites of mine and have been in some of my favorite movies, but putting their real names after the titles always gives me a laugh.

Prunella Scales




In addition to her distinctive name she has a very bizarre laugh, the one Basil Fawlty described as sounding like someone machinegunning a seal.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
