One thought on “Unusual Real Names – Cedella, O’Brien, Smedley, Wolfdietrich

  1. Well, Wolfdietrich is a common name in germany, maybe dowdy but not unusual. The last name “Schnurre” is actualy kind of cute because it referes either to “funny tale” (as the Leo dictionary just told me) or “purr”- in german “schnurren”.
