The following names are ones I have heard locally as real names or nicknames. I did not use or suggest any derogatory names from insults or body parts.
There are audio clips included, however, the names are sometimes pronounced differently. This blog post is just for fun and not a proper list to go by. Any suggestions are welcome, thank you.
