    On the Cleveland Indians, there is a player by the name of Coco Crisp. I asked my husband if Coco was just a nickname, given to him b/c of his last name. He says he doesn't think so. In the media, he is always referred to by the name Coco. I bet he took some ribbing as a kid.

    There is a little girl who goes to my church whose name is Honey Combs. Combs wasnt her origional last name. Her mother remarried and her new husband, whose last name is Combs, adopted her. She is 13 years old.
    I also knew a little girl named Summer Hickey, but her birth parents pinned that one on her!!

    Well, up til now I didn't have any to add. But today we had a Riis. Pronounced like Reese.
    I felt so bad for the kid. The parents' other kids had relatively normal names with normal spellings. Now to me, Reese is not bad. But Riis in no way to me would convey the way to say that name.

    Yep, poor kid will be hearing people try to figure out how to pronounce it for the rest of his/her life.

    Riis--I've seen the name before--in a novel (wonder if that's where the parents got it?). I looked it up out of curiosity and found one reference--a surname of a guy named Jacob August Riis, who lived between 1849 and 1914.

    My sister-in-law named her baby "Daniel Theodore Bear ______-______"(hyphenated last names). That poor kid's going to need therapy some day.

    Had a Pebbles in my nursing class.

    My Grandmother was named "Alberta" and had a sister "Florida"

    Named my own kids Elizabeth (who we call Lil) and Madelyn (whose school friends pronounce like Madeline) I named her after Maddy Prior, the female vocalist in Steeleye Span. It was important for me to pick names that would be instantly recognizable as female.

    Ok, this guy was born in like 1895 so his parents probably didn't know the significance of his name (although I bet HE did):

    Last name: Neal (pretty common, right)
    First Name: Perry.

    Sorry, I have to put my two cents in as well.

    Had a patient late one night (one bad, busy night) tell me she was going to name her baby Draven Qualude.

    Had a family name their kids, Camero, Caprice, Camry and Corsica.

    Have heard from L and D nurses who have been her for awhile that they had a patient who named her son Delmonte Zucchini!!

    And does anyone else think that the name Braxton is just too much?
