Has anyone suggested lawyers who have a law firm called "Wee, Cheatum, and Howe."

If not, rewatch the Three Stooges.

Nah. However there's a different law firm which also has a Mr. Howe. His partners are a Mr. Dewey and a Mr. Fukem.

Then there's this https://imgur.com/gallery/n2FLRnC

I briefly played a Dwarven druid. He was named after a mushroom which, in common, was called "deathcap" so, he went by Deathcap. He had a quirk that this always amused him because the name in Dwarven had no such connotation.

The British version is "Sue, Grabbit and Runne"

The running gag in my games is the firm of Dewey Cheatham Royal & Howe.

There are an astonishing number of Doctors Payne. One of whom is a urologist specializing in urologic pain.

There are also a number of Doctrors Moore.

My grandson is running a short campaign for me and his younger siblings using Wendys Feast of Legends system. My character is a member of the Order of the Frosty named Chuck Lot.
