    I know of a mom who named her baby girl "VaGina" pronounced the same as Jeana but with the "Vah" sound before it. How would you like to go through life writing your name as a female reproductive organ? Poor kid!

    These are too funny! Goes to show how all over the place people can be! I saw one, "Oceana Blue", seems a little much. This other one is a kicker, La-shia. Now how would you pronounce that? The mom got mad when it was prounounced "Lashia" and angrily corrected "Ladasha" You are supposed to actually say "dash" in there... really!?, really!!

    These dash (-) names crack me up. If they told me, "The dash isn't silent.", I'd be tempted to say, " Honey, dashes are ALWAYS silent." :smackingf

    "Talula Does the Hula in Hawaii"

    I heard about this one in the news about a year ago. A quick google search (I couldn't remember the exact "name" as it's technically a "phrase") brought me to this:

    My favorite of the "allowed" names: "Number 16 Bus Shelter"
