    My nephew is named Corbin - not unique by any stretch, but unusual for suburban Queensland where my sister grew up. We just call him Noddy

    When I was a kid my cousins and I spent a lot of time dancing and singing etc in eisteddfods. We competed against two sisters called Nicky-Lee and Jodie-Lee Scully-Helsten. Not really odd..but having a hyphenated surname myself, I wonder about parents who inflict hyphenated names on their kids. If nothing else, it makes your signature soooo much longer!

    Of all the unusual baby names I've heard in my life, the strangest remain "Little Johnnie Zig-Zag" and "Isle of Fantasy" Both children were named by rather unique parents in 1971, in the L&D where I completed my student nurses rotation. Reader's Digest published a little book entitled, "Remarkable Names of Real People." Some entries also include the person's occupation. If you ever get a chance to read it, it will supply a bit of insight into the lives of those babies with unusual names. They do grow up. 'Groaner Digger' became an undertaker. 'I.C. Shivers' became an iceman, and my personal favorite, 'Lavender Sidebottom' became a massage therapist. I fear to think what Little Johnnie and Isle will become!

    I ran across a name in the local paper recently, which I swear I am not making up: Barryl Chest. My sister, who's a legal assistant, says she knows the guy, and he even has a twin brother named Darryl. Did these poor dudes' parents not like them or something?

    Hey frannybee- Corbin is the name of the hero (played by Bruce Willis) in the movie THE 5th ELEMENT. It's also the name of a little electric car made in right here in Holister,CA. Looks like a motorcycle with a colorful full body farring,one wheel in front and 2 in back
    Isn't that guy on the rolling papers called Johnny Zig Zag?
    I knew folks that named their son Krishna around that time.Jeez the kid suffered for it!

    this might not mean much to you guys in the states as i don't think you get "neighbours" (aussie soap) out there, do you? anyhow, these names aren't really that strange - i just cannot believe that their parents (who lived in my village) called them these in the same family - jason, kylie, scott and charlene!! also, there were two kids at my school who were called rupert bear and teddy bear....seriously!!
