Charing Fellony: The World’s Most Unfortunate Name For A Criminal Defendant

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”
Juliet’s famous line seemed to have a more poignant meaning this week with the arrest of Fellony Silas, 30, for . . . you guessed it . . . a felony battery at a bar.

Fellony allegedly attacked a woman with a glass after the woman bumped her while dancing.

At least her parents could have cut her a break and named her Misdemeana Silas or Nolo Contendere Silas.

  1. here in daytona there is a dentist named dr. kuack

    also knew of a police chief named swindle

    and of course a used car salesman named jim shady

    and a girl named sandy beaches (i had to check her id)

  2. Mespo,

    That’s what I meant to say…… This tablet has some funky auto correct…..i am still getting used to it…. Yet to figure out how to cut and paste adequately……

  3. Mespo,

    Can you explain the phenomenon that almost every serial killer has a D in the middle name…..

  4. Gene,

    I think I’m channeling pete which is not necessarily a comfortable state of mind. 😉

  5. Chanda Lear.

    At least the coffee you made me snort was room temperature from this morning instead of hot and fresh, Blouise. :mrgreen:

  6. Thanks for the aptronymic delight. In my own particular corner of the Twilight Zone, could there be any doubt that Dr. Joseph Couch, was destined to become a psychoanalyst, pretty much from the point of conception?

    Don’t you just know that Dr. Donald Duckles never really had career choice?

    How could Dr. C Yu NOT have become an eye specialist?

    I suspect the curious concept of nominative determinism just doesn’t pop up often enough, during the pregnancy stage, as perhaps it ought, in an enlightened society.

    And perhaps that’s the lamest Felony of all.

  7. I ‘ve told this story before, but I’ve represented clients with the following first names:

    Female (Pronounced “fe-male-ya”)

  8. I’m thinking of changing my name to Chanda Lear and becoming a detective.

    Detective Chanda Lear throws a bright light on the dark world of crime.

    Or maybe an HBO series …

  9. She could have been named:

    Volo Mortis

    ..which would have been a bit disadvantageous during the penalty phase.
