I Prefer Bologna Unfried to Bulimia

A comment on this mental_floss post mentions an oddly named couple.

I once saw a photo of a grave for a gentleman named “Fredrick Unfred” and his wife, “Bologna Unfred.” Fred Unfred and Bologna? What were their parents thinking!
Fred's surname was originally "Unfried," which makes his wife's name look like uncooked luncheon meat. On the other hand, given the variety of spellings and misspellings in census and other records, her name may well have been "Bulimia."
