    Twilla Dawn-pregnant 18 year old mother decided that Twilight wasn't a proper name for her daughter so she shortened it to Twilla and used Dawn as the middle name from Breaking Dawn.Seriously?Twilla is such a weird name
    I went to school with a girl named Twila (one L, I think) That was in the 1950s. My husband just remarked that he, too, went to school with a Twila in the 1950s--same state. different county

    I went to school in the 50's with a Twila also! I always thought it was a pretty name.

    Consider this! The baby's name was "Le-a' We all thought the baby's name was, of course "Lea', spelled strangly, but hey, everyone is spelling things weird these days. Oh no!!! The family told us the '-' wasn't silent!!! So the name was acutally pronounced....."Le,dash,a". Go figure.

    The weirdest name was The Squirel E. They were going to name the baby just plain Squirrel....but decided to put The in front of it so that he could go by the initials T.S. just in case he preferred it when he got older. The middle name is E. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it.

    I went to school with a girl named Precious(first name) Melody (middle name). I'll leave out her last name because it would be incriminating.

    I am a school nurse and come across lots of interesting names. I have a parent right now and for privacy I will not say her entire name but her first name is Sparkle and her last name is a condiment.
    Here are a few interesting names I have come across:
    Honesty, Innocent, Heavenly, Prescious, Fortune
    I have had sets of twins; Ricki and Ricky
    siblings:
    Camery and Cameron,
    Jonesha and Jonathan,

    Torriona and Torriono Darion and Darius
    boy- Gawaka girl- Ghakilah

    I had two students in the same grade both Michael J Smith
    (not related).

    I also heard about a non english speaker who liked the sound of Placenta for her newborn, I believe the nurses talked her out of it.
