    Although, technically, Al Pacino is an actor.... though he has played gangsters.

    Did anyone see Oprah Winfrey on David Letterman a couple years ago? No, not THAT Oprah Winfrey - instead, this was a 15-year-old girl whose parents, Mr. and Mrs. Winfrey, named her after a daytime TV host and humanitarian.



    When I was in college in the early 1990s, a woman in the class ahead of me got married, and considered keeping her maiden name because her new name would be that of a top celebrity, Cindy Crawford. She decided to change it, in part because of that very real possibility that in 5 years, nobody would remember THAT Cindy Crawford.

    p.s. The launch of Cialis was delayed by a year or so because some people with the surname Cialis sued the drug company to change the name. They didn't win.

    In the last month, we have had two uniquely named newborns:
    "Galaxy Puff" and "Zen Revolution"
    Taking the time to read through this entire thread (groan at the jellos in particular), I stumbled across this post and had to say that my youngest son was almost named Zen Revelation by his father... I fought the good fight, though, and he wound up Elijah Monroe... lol... I am sad that someone else had taste as bad as my late husband did with baby names... oi

    my daughter (middle child) was almost Summer Skye ... but she was an October baby, and everyone said it made no sense no matter how much I liked the name Summer.. lol... so I gave in to reason and went with my 2nd favorite - Taylor. (After the singer Taylor Dayne - beautiful voice, loved the name) Oddly enough, she has had lots of male classmates with the name Taylor but not one female classmate with her name.. poor kid. I never thought of it as a boy's name. The middle name stuck because (*blush*) I had heard a soap opera character named that and fell in love with it... I think Skye for a girl is such a pretty name... lol

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium]I actually had a patient who named her precious newborn girl "Abcde"!! It's pronounced Ab-cee-dee! Then there was the teenage couple that named their first one "Motley Crue" , who was followed by a little brother 2 years later by the name of "Nicky Sixx"! By the time this couple had their 3rd child, I guess common sense and a few years of maturity had set in because this one was simply "Joesph"!

    I spend my summer vacation working as a nurse at a summer camp, and we had a child come through with the name True Love. Love being her last name... I'm sorry but at first glance I thought it was the title to a cheesy 80s song..

    That reminded me of a girl I knew of named TrueLove Sledge.
