    Let's see...I have seen a Baby (first name) Girl (Middle Name), Jello and Ollej (twins), Alize (like the alcohol), my boyfriend said he knew a pair of twins that were name orangejello and some sort of other jello, and my sisters teacher told us that she knew a boy that was named Penis. She pronounced it a different way thinking it was a cultural word and he corrected her saying it was just Penis.

    when my parents found out they were expecting triplets, they quickly decided on 3 boy names but couldn't agree on even one girl name. when my mom went into labor, they were still arguing/discussing.
    my two brothers did not survive but had names. i was 3#, but lived -- nameless. when i went home 2 weeks later, i was still "the baby" and my parents still could not agree. my dad was still holding out for evelyn, my mom's name, while she wanted me to be abigail elizabeth and be called abby liz. my grandmas were mary and rose, but my dad had once seen a stripper whose name was mary rose so that ended that. i ended up being named katherine for my great grandma, but not katherine emmaline,as was suggested for two great grandmas. that would have been quite a combination!!

    the kids from about the 4th through 8th grades will have a field day and the bullies will move right in.

    When I had my son earlier this year, there were three babies born the same week with the same name, but different spellings: Cohen, Coawen, Coen.

    I went to school with a Lovely Rose Bud, a Princess Pea Pod, a Penny Nickles, and a Kansas Sunshine.

    Here are a few more of my favorites:
    Areola
    Christmas Snow
    Holy Trinity
    ESPN
    Dry Mix
    Rhett Butler
    Easton Bow
    Atreyu (whose siblings Bastian, Koreander, Cairon, and Empress welcomed him home - have you ever seen the movie "The Never Ending Story?")

    I'm sorry but those two above are just too sad for the kids, especially, dry mix!! It's a baby not some cat food.

    Anyways one of my closest friends' cousin is named Jewelry. Yes, like the jewelry you wear.

    This young girl was filling out a form where you have to put front, middle, and last name. I looked at it, it said Harley okay not that bad. But her middle name was Girl :imbar.
