    A high school teacher had a sister named Candy- last named Stripe.

    My family has some unusual Italian names. It can be common in Sicily to name at least one daughter in some way after the Virgin Mary. My grt-gran was Nunziatina (The Annunciation)- my sister ended up with this goofy middle name. My grandmother was Eleanora Immaculetta Concepciono (The Immaculate Conception). My aunt is Tindera (the Virgin Mary of Tindel).

    My hippie cousins have gotten into the unique naming game as well, Lotus (a girl), Malachi (a boy), and Helenippa Manhatten (a girl).

    And we thought my cousin's name (June Delight) was weird! She was born in May...

    I once worked with a woman named Mercedes--but hers was pronounced MER-se-dees. Is that Spanish?

    I like my name: Tomi. Its kind of different for girls to be named that, and I really like the spelling, its even harder to find.

    I've known several girls named Cinnamon, but the one that takes the cake (heehee) was my daughter's teacher a few years ago. Her full name was Cinnamon Crisp. It took me most of the year to be able to think about it without a giggle.

    Also when I was young we lived upstairs from a woman named Baby. It was funny to hear my dad come home, say "Hi, Baby", then come upstairs and say the same thing to me.

    Oh, and I forgot about an asian guy in my high school. His family moved into town and registered him for school. My mom was working in the office and asked how to spell the boy's name. In trying to do a direct translation to English, they wanted to spell it You Suk. My mom actually talked them into spelling it Kyu Sok, which was just enough different that he never really had much trouble that I know of. Whew!

    I just sent Dolla' Bill home. Nice. I hate the stripper names too. In our NICU I was taking care of Pheonix, Starlight, and Princess. The Porno trio.
