name appropriate for work

found my plumber through a tribe posting. He answers the phone, at different times, 'Rooter Bong' and Bong'. At first i thought his name was 'rooter' and he added 'bong' at the end. Turns out his name is 'bong' and he added 'rooter' when he started plumbing. He said that in his previous job at a warehouse (i think) his work jacket said 'bong' and people on the street constantly tried to buy the jacket... Honestly, i called him over other recommendations because i love the name!

      A friend of ours works in the local gardening store with a guy named "Bat Dung". He asked him what his name meant in Vietnamese one day and got this story....

      In Vietnam, "Bat" means "8". He was the 8th child in the Dung family and his parents apparently ran out of names (or were just tired of having kids?) so they just named him "8".

      When he immigrated to the U.S. he hoped that people would not laugh at his name any more. Sadly, that's not the way it turned out....
