    No lie - my mother, who taught first and second grade, once had a kid in her class named Chiquita Rosita. I forgot about her until right now! Little blonde-haired kid who wouldn't say BOO to a goose, but her name just made you think uh, CARMEN MIRANDA....

    I used to work with a CNA who was named Rein Deer. I thought someone was fooling around when I heard the name paged over the intercom at first!

    I almost ended up Timber Wolff, Winter Wolff, or Summer Wolff. My dad even joked with my mom about naming me Were. I would have KILLED them! LOL. As it turns out, I got named after Melanie, the 70's singer. So now whenver I hear, "Brand New Key", I smile. It was a close race between Carly (for Carly Simon) and Melanie. Unfortunately, it's VERY easy to make fun of "Melanie".....Smelly Melly, Melonhead, Watermelon, Melonball, etc.

    I went to school with a girl that had the name "Ana". Not bad until we all learned her full name...Anal. She was from Iran, India, or a country in that area and that was her real name. She obviously shortened it to Ana.

    I also knew a Marsha....and her last name was Mellow. And then there were the sisters, Chastity and Charity (they came from a really religious family).

    I overheard some parents talking in the hospital about naming their twins "Ace" and "Deuce"...I am hoping it was a joke.

    We have picked out names for both a boy and a girl...someday. Brody Alexander (his initials will spell out "BAM") and Brynn Michele. The other two kids are named Bradley and Breanne, so in keeping with the "Br" theme.....

    My husband is the first one to break the chain in his family. The men are named William Clyde, then the next is Clyde William, and then William Clyde, etc. My father-in-law is William Clyde, so you guess what my hubbie was almost named!!! They ended up breaking tradition and named him William Henry. It's a nice enough name, BUT what a big hassle, having the same name as your father....grrrrr!! We have to clean up our credit report frequently because the two become intermingled.

    Oh, I was reading over some flyers at the hospitals about seminars that were being given. One was by a Dr. Skankey and another a Dr. Muff. I laughed and said the two should get married...it would be the Skankey-Muff wedding....ROFL!!!!!!

    Melanie = )

    the current attorney general in Michigan is named Mike Cox - during election time, it was hard to keep a straight face when the issue of voting for a new attorney general came up because he (Mike Cox) ran against a guy named (no joke) Gary Peters..............

    I worked OB for 9 years and heard some pretty wacky names:

    Justin Tyme (Just in time)

    Tequella Sunrise

    Merry Christmas (first and last name)

    One week we had 3 moms name each daughter "Ashley Nicole", after 2 famous soap stars on "The Young and the Restless".

    This isn't a baby name, but my son's best friend's mom's first name is Candy, which is a nice name, but their last name is Bandy - Candy Bandy.

    Hey I went to school with two brothers. One named Cutter and the other named Ryder. Another girl i knew was named first name Holly, last name Wood. HOLLYWOOD. When I was doing my maternity practicum someone named their baby girl phayden, sounds like jayden but with a ph sound at the front. My uncle wanted to name their boy Sterling and have the middle name Silver... how mean,, but they named his wyatt instead....

    In the 1940's we had a mayor named Harry Baals. There is still a bridge in town with his name on it.
