    I've seen the name 'Candida' more than once. I actually knew a very snobbish woman named 'Candy', or Candida.

    Live where we have these twin physicians "Krohn" and they happen to be GI docs.

    Also worked with a ER doc Dr. Dickout, poor guy we always gave him a hassle

    My second husband's last name was Ross. So what.....well my name is Dianne. I spent 5 years getting called (and getting my mail addressed) Diana....Diana Ross. Of course I was a flight test engineer and my lead mechanic on that F-16 was Michael Jackson.

    We were set up by the pilots....invited to happy hour at the O'Club. There was a live band. None the wiser, we were sitting at the bar enjoying our beverages when the band announced,"We understand that we have both Diana Ross and Michael Jackson here tonight.....!!!!' Groan!

    Then there was this Sergeant at a Fort I once lived on..... his son was a carrot top so they named him Red. His daughter was Christina (Chris). His name.....Sgt. Cross. Yep, the genius named his kids Red Cross and Chris Cross!

    My dad had a student named Placenta. The mom heard this during delivery and thought that it was sooooo pretty! Yeah, Placenta Rivers will likely be in the nearest rehab facility.

    I am sure you have all heard of the story of La-a. It is pronounced laDASHa. Yeah, you pronounce the dash. I am only hoping that this is an urban legend. If not, you can probably surmise that La-a and Placenta Rivers are roommates at the rehab facility.

    I started to laugh when I saw the name Sarah Bellar on the census. Gotta love those parents!

    I went to school with a kid named Gene. We called him Gene-O as a nickname. We were too young to understand the humor of the nickname: his last name was Tiphe.

    The worst name I have ever seen (and I am serious as a hostage wanting to get home) is Happy Hussey. WHAT were her parents thinking?!!? Thankfully, she was a cute kid that had thick skin. Everyone loved her, and she was incredibly funny.

    Yeah, I know Dr. Weiner, the urologist. And Dr. Hackman, the general surgeon.

    Funny thread! Thanks for starting it, OP!

    Sadly, I can HONESTLY say La-sha is NOT an urband legend. A girl here saw it online and named her daugther La-sha about a year ago. I work in registration and the mom had such an attitude everytime someone mis-pronounced the name. Damn, sorry! Lol.

    I went to school with an Adam Adamson and a Jimmy James, yes, his first name was James...
    We have a couple that come to our office, the husband is Andrew Shawn Smith, initials are A.S.S., his wife told me once that she was glad she had lost weight, but that she wished she hadn't lost that much in her behind because her husband was an a*s man... Who would have though it?
