kittylouise, Thanks for the clarification. I had trouble with the idea of a soap bar called 'jason.' being marketable!

These were taken from ABCnews.com back a year ago. The article also mentions names like Espn (pronounced Espen), Gouda, and so on.
I just can't imagine giving birth to a beautiful baby girl and then bestowing her with a name like Dung.
Feb 25, '03Thank you for quoting your info's source!
It's difficult to imagine the attention that will be drawn to these precious little ones by their parents' choices in their young lives.
I remember shuddering at the thought of little girls going through life with such 'masculine' names as Madison, Taylor, and Bailey. But those names seem to have caught on. There was a time in the last century when the male names of Joyce, Meredith, and Beverly were bestowed upon baby girls. They have obviously caught on and been monopolized by the fairer sex!
Somehow, though, I don't foresee a positive trendn in the name 'Dung,' for either gender!
Feb 25, '03Ok, here's one. My cousin named her son this. Zenith Moonshadow.
noooo kiddinnnnn'''', crazzzziiiineeesssss
Feb 25, '03I forgot to mention that I know someone named Synnovia. Probably not a strange name if your in Russia, but I doubt she will ever meet anyone with the same name.
Everyone calls her Snow.
I can't remember the name of the movie because it is so old, but Darrly Hannah plays a mermaid and they name her Madison because that is the name of the street at the time. I thought at the time that it was a cute name for a girl and even thought of naming my daughter that. Of course, I was only a little girl myself at the time.
Feb 25, '03I swear this is the truth I wouldn't even think of this to be able to make it up but when I was in high school there were twin boys and their names were................... Larry and Harry Hiney :chuckle You can imagine the torment they got!
Feb 25, '03Grew up with a kid her name was: April May Junes
High school with a girl named: Windy Flagg
Worked in an orthodontists office, had a patient named Levon( ya, know.... Levon likes his money,,,) and rhiannon.. (ya know, Fleetwood Mac!) And people thought I was odd for naming my daughter Madison Tyler.. (madison is my grandmother maiden name)
Feb 26, '03How bout' "Satin Sheets'? No kidding..... her first name is Satin and last name is Sheets. She's a little girl in my town who's always in the paper for beauty pageants and stuff.
Feb 26, '03nurseleigh....the movie's title is "Splash" Funny, her name was another one I thought odd for a girl....."Darryl"......!!!!
ThirdWorldGirl......The POOR twins named Larry and Harry Hiney.....!!! Their dad may have been related to the man in the song by Johnny Cash........."A Boy Named Sue".....!!!! He didn't want those boys to grow up to be weenies !! Of course, with names like those, growing up AT ALL must have been quite an accomplishment!
