    I met two brothers, grown men, who still went by the names their Grandma had given to them as babies.

    My step-son's name is Braxton Mackenzie. His mom is Kendell Lee (first and middle names) - unusual names but really neat - I think she did a good job!

    My grandmother is Ruby Claire and my other one (I found out when were were preparing her obit. - can't believe I never knew this!) was named officially (on her birth cert!) Tiny Mary Ann Clement.

    Went to hs with a guy whose family is Korean. All the boys in the family have the first name Jun last name Yum. It's the middle name that distinguishes them: Jun Bum Yum, Jun Sak Yum (those are the two I remember)

    My aunt kept twins: Relencia and Relesia. They were combinations of mom and dad's names.

    Cousin named MacKenna and another named Arenda - both girls

    This isn't that unusual but definitely southern: aunt named Betty Jean

    Here's another good OLD southern name: Hembree- that was my great-uncle's name. Some others from the family tree: Cuyler, Willis, Lyman, Candler, Asa and best of all: Ninian Beall (all men) and Rubilee, Ollie, Sadie, Starla

    I remember when my middle name was unusual - you hear it more often now: Ansley

    Had a patient in Post-partum not so long ago who was Muslim and they named their daughter Muhammed. They told me it was unusual for a girl but they wanted to honor the grandfather whose name was also Muhammed.

    Former next door neighbor named their daughter Gracie Lou (and yes, this was before Miss Congeniality came out!) - can you tell I live in the south?!?

    This isn't a baby name, but I used to have next door neighbors whose last name was Hynum.... I was SOOOO scared I was going to say it wrong and call them the Hymen's.

    My grandfather was from the south and hi name was Heber Gregg (pronounced heeber) when he passed away we went to order flowers and the guy at the florist shop said "is that Jeeber Gregg?" as sad as we both were my sister and I cracked up that someone could actually mess up his name even more!

    My paternal Grandmother insisted that my parents use the names "Lucy Kay" and "Effie Fay" After 3 daughters, none of whom were named either name, I was her last hope. My mom thankfully named me after her sister.

    Rescued!!

    Okay, have to throw in my two cents...

    I had to talk my sister out of naming her first daughter Misty Summer

    I went to school with a guy named Zane Zuniga (don't know if it's that strange, but will never forget it!)

    My mother knew a girl in high school who was named after her father (James). He passed away before she was born so her mother named her Jamezina

    I work in the parish hospital in Lafayette, LA for a while and my two favorite names were Sisterbelle (girl) and Sir (boy)

    And last, but not least, my youngest son's birth name is Glenn, but we call him Moose. He's three and won't even answer to Glenn!

    I'll never forget Zechariah Joseph _______.His last name was Polish (or Slovak) and had about 20 letters - mostly constanents. The crib card wouldn't hold it all. We figured he'd be in high school before he could spell it all.

    I went to junior high with a girl named Tequila, know a girl now named Memory. Also, she doesn't have an unusual name, but I know a girl with initials TLC who is, coincidentally, a very caring, sweet person. And, I know the Corbin thing was a while back in the thread, but Corbin is also the name of a town in south-central KY!
