    Someone heard the word Chlamydia said and thought it was such a pretty name. Can you imagine the little girl in sex ed class when she hears that her name is a disease? I guess the mom can really say that she has Chlamydia. :chuckle

    Mom heard the word "vagina" during her delivery. Thought it was very pretty and decided that Vagina was going to be her baby's name.

    have heard of sha- theed ( spelled SH**HEAD)
    ah-show-le (spelled AS*HOLE)
    la-mon and ah-rawnge jeh-low (lemon and orange jello)

    my cousin is a boy named Ariel- the mom expected a girl and refused to change it. another cousin had his name misspelled on the birth certificate.

    My friend has 8 kids, one is named Lovelee.
    Another friend has 3 kids- Philem (a girl, short for Philemon- a book in Bible), Nahum -a boy, another book in the Bible - and Keturah- a girl, a prophet. Those aren't too bad- but I kid you not- if they had any more kids they want to name the next one Kuzco- like the Emperor's New Groove llama thing!!! They have already named their cat Kuzco....
    Some people think my name is weird.
    Fawn

    Hey, My best friend name is Millionetta (her father's name "Milton" and her mother's name "Bernetta" mixed together. Her little sister's name is "Youpromiseme" pronounced just like you promised me!And my cousin just named her daughter Zyen-Isis, pronounced Zion- Eye Cyst, I told her that it sounds like an eye disease!! Lets just say that we call her Zyen! I have a friend in college named Yudelka, pronounced You-dell-kah. By the way, my name is Brynn pronounced Bren, I don't think that its a crazy name but I am tired of people calling Bryan , Brian.

    I went to school with a Prince and Princess (they were brother and sister). My step-mom wanted to name her child Zero if she ever had one (she didn't).....her last name started with a Z. My friend said that her Dad wanted to name her Penelope Candice (sp?) and call her Penny Candy. My husband wanted to name our son after an Aztec ruler.....I said no way! We decided on Julian

    A rad tech where I work named his daughter Dorkus. Poor kid. I know it is the name of a saint, but there are many other saints to choose from! Can you imagine how bad that child will get picked on in junior high?

    I did not know Dorkus was a saint but there was a girl 2 years ahead of me in highschool and that was her name (I'm over 40)

    From my childhood growing up in Central Mississippi and going to public school I remember several girls named Latrina. I never realized until I was in my 20's that without the a at the end it sounds like a word for a urinal. This name was so common it never crossed my mind. We also had in my class a Eureeka. I guess her parents felt they had struck gold!

    Quadayle. I never knew if this was some strange abridgement of Dan Quayle and never asked.
