    Ok, my husband is a huge Dallas football and basketball fan. He wants to name our son (if we ever have one) Dallas. Is that weird?

    Not as "interesting" as some of the ones I've read, but my sister in law, her parents couldn't decide on a name in time so her birth certificate reads "Infant" as her first name.

    In South Africa we have many people with names such as Gift, Precious, Freedom, Patience, etc. this is because the parents have translated it directly from their home languages into English. I've worked with a nurse aid named Matron and as we still frequently use the term to refer to our Nursing Managers in SA you can see her mom's aspirations for her, but the most unfortunate name must belong to the paediatric surgeon I worked with as a first year student......Dr BUTCHER.

    We have a frequent flyer family with the little girl named "Amiracle." Most of the names I see I swear are made up because I have never seen any of them in a baby name book! Of course I always slaughter the pronunciation and get corrected!

    I have a niece named Shira Jenae. I had actually picked the name out when I was pregnant with my last child, but was a boy and could not use it. So when my sister got pregnant she asked if she could use the name.

    I have seen many funny ones too--- one little girl named Cyan- I asked Mom where did that come from and she says "it's a medical term you know" (she had just taken her CNA class) got it from cyanosis----- just be glad they weren't studying diarrhea.....then I've seen the Heaven & Heavenly- we've also had Orangejello & Lemonjello- and recently Espn--prononced espen or something like that. Wonder if sister will be CNN ?????

    A couple named their baby chlamydia- thinking it was just a pretty sounding name. Like a flower- poor kid not just for having a name like that but a couple of insanely stupid parents.
    When I was pregnant w/ my son, there was a lady who was almost due. She was having a girl and when asked, said she was naming her "Gonorrhea". I asked her if she knew it was name of an STD and she said yes, but that she was going to pronounce it differently (Ga-NAH-ria) - poor kid. I also used to work for an ob/gyn doc - here are more names - Nevaeh (Ne-VAY-ah) Heaven spelled backwards (I liked this one). Family whose last name was Green dad: Forrest, mom: Esmarelda, kids: Hunter, Kelly, Oliver David (OD) or olive. went ti school with a girl named Ima June Bugge (last name not pronounced bug)

    In the case of Brittany, I believe that is how it is spelt in Galic... Dayvod is Welsh... not sure about the others but they too might just be the 'non-english-ised' versions of names.
    Ummm...it isn't Brittany that is unusual...Brytkneigh is the one I thought was a little out there...
