    Hey I went to school with two brothers. One named Cutter and the other named Ryder. Another girl i knew was named first name Holly, last name Wood. HOLLYWOOD. When I was doing my maternity practicum someone named their baby girl phayden, sounds like jayden but with a ph sound at the front. My uncle wanted to name their boy Sterling and have the middle name Silver... how mean,, but they named his wyatt instead....
    Hey nothing wrong with Sterling (means pure) ! Or Silver! (okay my name isn't Silver but...)

    What about the craziest way you've seen a name spelled?? You can take a common name like Jane....and make it unique!!! Jaeyn...TADA!

    I've told my daughter its not Mommy....its Mohmee (Jk)

    name my daughter Brittknee?

    Jules
    Actually, all my (motherly) life, my kids have spelled my name Mommee.:spin:
    They still do and they're ages 23 through 27!

    When I was growing up my little sister had a friend named Michelin. She said her dad had something to do with the tire company. But the company itself is named after its founders, the Michelin brothers, so it's a real name (French, I believe), even though it sounds weird to most of us.

    Kian (boy) and Marina (girl)

    I worked as a labor and delivery nurse for 5 years and the weirdest names were "Orangejello" and "Lemonjello". Another one was Heven Leigh Flowers (heavenly flowers!!) Does make you wonder what people are thinking!!

    Did you see these personally?

    I ask because the names are part of a very popular urban legend that has been around for at least 20 years. Maybe the legend has become well-known enough that some dim bulb decided to go ahead and make it come true.

    I recently took care of twin girls named Heaven and Naveah.

    :yeahthat: I'm getting so I can't almost read threads like these because if I see "lemonjello", "orangejello", or a baby named "female", I'm gonna tear my hair out.

    Although rn/writer has a good point. Maybe some dimwit out there from this country has heard the legend and decided to make it come true. Wouldn't surprise me.
