    :roll This is a great topic!! I wish I could sit here and read all of these unusual names!! Good for a laugh. i'm in a time crunch, though, so I'll give you the two most unusual I have ever heard.
    Lution (loo-shun)-baby boy; and Comfort-girl Not meaning to offend anyone if you have these names or know somebody who does, it is just my opinion that they are different.:kiss

    Emerson for a girl, a coworker's sister named her daughter this.

    I hear that name i think of my VCR and my microwave.

    But i'm getting pretty burnt on hearing that yet another one of my friends named their kid Brittany or Caitlin (or however they are spelled this week)

    My grandma's first and middle names: Virginia Dare
    Great Aunt': Malissa America

    A family of 21 kids, go figure, they probably ran out of names...

    I have met and heard of several little girls named Candida.

    I guess the parents have no clue....

    This is too funny.
    Reminds me of a guy I dated. His given name was Dusty Kenneth Glass. Hee hee . . . Dusty Glass. The goofy guy named his daughter Krystal. LOL Poor kid.

    Another unusual name. . . Delmacholony. . . dell-ma-coll-la-knee. Took me awhile to get that one right.

    My friend has a niece named Halcion. Everyone pretty much refuses to call her Hallie. . . only "Halcion" will do.

    My grandmother's father's name was Spurgeon.

    Once, I mistakenly referred to him as "Sturgeon". She corrected me by saying "My father is not a fish."

    My grandfather's middle name is Ulrich. (German).

    Our neighbor is is really into Harley's & Nascar. He named his son Ryder. I laughed when I found out, I said Ryder as in Rider Rental Trucks! ?

    My oldest daughter's name is not so unusual anymore: Gianna (Gee-ah-nah)

    but I rarely hear my youngest daughter's name anywhere else: Gracen (Gray-sen). I liked the name Grace but thought it was a bit oldfashioned. I had heard of the name Grayson which is popular for boys in the South (US). Some people call her Gray-son but it's supposed to be Gray-sen.

    My husband calls Gianna "Girlie" and Gracen "Namesake"????? Go figure. Our son bears a traditional name: Joseph. We both call him "Boy".

    I remember being amazed that any of our children learned their name at all because we always used nicknames.

    My grandmother's name was Billie, my aunts name is Billie-Margaret. I have a great aunt name Lub... not sure if that's a nickname or her given name.. given I think. My grandfather's name was Hilary. I was going to name my daughter Hillary but she was born shortly after Clinton was elected, and I didn't want to look like a copycat...lol.. so I named her Corinne.. which coincidently was the name of a great aunt I never knew of who was greatly disappointed when I was born since I was a girl and couldn't carry on the family name. My dad was only son and I was his only child (my mom had two from a previous marriage and had DM so really wasn't healthy enough to have me, let alone more). Anyway... that's pretty strange, don't you think?
