Anti-aptronym? [20 May 2013|02:48am]

The inventor of the lawnmower was named Edwin Beard Budding.

I like aptronyms; this seems like an anti-aptronym.

The Budding Wikipedia article also seems to have been vandalized -- I don't think the first section is supposed to be called "Johnny Depp" although maybe Edward Scissorhands is relevant here, speaking of aptronyms.
