    Are you saying the name Les Paul is weird or that it's weird to name a baby after him?

    I have formulated a set of rules I wish we could get legislated.
    #1 If the child will never be able to say or spell the name.
    #2 If the child will never be able to pronounce the name.
    #3 If it will get them beat up at school.
    #4 If it is just plain stupid.
    Then we will assign you a name for your baby.

    NOW that is good legislation!

    I went to school with a boy named Dartagnian. (SP??)

    The names Margarita and Montserrat are both Hispanic names that are normal in their culture. Margarita isn't only an alcoholic drink. LOL.

    D'Artagnan was one of the Three Musketeers. When I was growing up in Des Moines, there was a prominent local musician named Dartanyan Brown, which is how that name is pronounced.

    I ran into one yesterday--Naexavious Rrhonan He's 8yrs old. I can't imagine how long it took him to learn to spell it. And I know of an Antoineisha. Unfortunately, she has Down Syndrome and has never learned to spell her name, although she knows her letters and numbers. After the capital A, she's lost.

    At my school I have
    Amiricul Uneeque(pronounce a-miracle unique)
    Precious Unique
    Precious Lake
    Miracle Unique
    Uniqiue Princess

    I'm guessing Uneeque/Unique/Uniqiue aren't as You-neek as they thought.

    I helped in a delivery of a woman with the married name Candy Corn. She named her children Cobb and Paul(nicknamed him Pop). I wanted to slap her.

    i did volunteer work in a senior center in college. one dear sweet tiny old lady's name was arsie.
    it was pronounced arse-ie... it was her real name and wasn't a nickname.
