    There's a small village a few miles from me that, until the late 19th Century, went by the name of 'Shittington', until it was renamed 'Stillington'.

    I went to Scunthorpe once. It's true that you can't spell Scunthorpe without C...

    Also, there's a small place called Twatt, in the Orkney Islands off the north coast of Scotland.

    What if someone, whose name truly Dick, wanted to put their name in his gamertag (I know a few people who use their real name)? I would be ticked off if I couldn't use my name!!!

    They would have to resort to Richard, Rick, Richie, or Ricky, since Dick is an abbreviation of Richard.
