    The name itself is not so very weird, but the reason for it is strange. One of my roommates when I had my son named her daughter either Chablis or Chardonnay; someone questioned her was it for the wine? Her response was no, it was after one of Kathy Lee Gifford's dogs.

    No funny names fromt he nursing field yet, but from the daycare field? there are som weird ones!
    We have a kid named aden (a-den) because his parents didnt know how to spell it, because they only named him right before leaving the hospital.
    Also had an Aliric supposedly it meant like god or something or king , that kid was more like king of his house....
    We had a server at ihop the other day whose name was candida (maybe not the best name to have when in the food industry?)
    had a share of Nevaehs (heaven spelled backwords), we had a sunny, a kid whose name was tristan, but intials spelled TNT...Flonette, burgundy, deux, I went to school with a chick named verushcha, a alittle girl named azjanea.
    At one point in my class we had little girls named mikayla, kylie, kayliegh, kaitilin, kira and kyra! Now try saying that three times fast

    As we and the parents of those kids may find those names funny, I think those parents won't know the embarrassment those children will feel when they grow up and know the meaning of their names (I agree some are nice but the others, oh boy!). Thank God my parents gave me and my siblings normal names. I understand the need of those parents for something out of the ordinary but please leave those names for your pets! Seriously, poor kids... just my

    I met a woman while on travel in 2007 that was pregnant with her first daughter. Her husband was super excited and wanted to name the girl Harleigh Not too bad ....HOWEVER, the poor child's middle name is Quinn. Both names are nice by themselves but together.. I don't think so.

    That's the name of the Joker's sidekick Well, I think it was Harley Quinn, but same idea... Maybe he was just a big Batman fan!

    thank you!

    that picture was taken at the breeder's front door. our mannie is the third puppy from the right. the litter was about 9 weeks old in the picture. his registered name is l-o-n-g and "man" is part of it.

    he's a real character.

    Hmm, I have seen two kids with the names Blue and Harvest....Last name?? You guessed it! Moon!

    Ooh I have one to add! Not at our hospital but close by: a baby girl named Leeloo. I'm assuming that it's after the character in The Fifth Element.

    We had a patient in my office named Bichi Nguyen pronounced [I swear] "****** When". And it didn't have to do with first names but was funny, we saw a family of Sipps in the morning and Cupps in the afternoon. And I went to high school with a Tella Graham and a Cherry Wood. My mom knew a girl named "Teflon" because her momma loved Teflon when it came out [my mom is almost 60].
