    2 women that worked at the school canteen were named Sue Ridge and Ann Crap... image having those names and working in a school! I have also heard of a Brooke (first name) Lynn (middle name) Bridge ( last name) and I saw on the news once a reporter named Will Power ... I swear you would never leave home if you had those names!

    "Samej," pronounced "Samah-jay," is the name my pt had picked out for her unborn daughter. She was naming the baby after the FOB, named James, who happened to be in jail at the time for breaking the pt's arm... :uhoh21:

    I am LMAO at this thread!

    I named my son Jared Ethan. Something normal! I picked the Jared part. My sister recommended Ethan, but she wanted it to be his first name. I liked it as "Jared Ethan", so I ran it past my husband. He liked it too. So we stuck with it. Only downside: his initals spell JEM, but still, how often do you write only his initials? Most of the time if he initials something, it'll be JM, so that, again, is normal.

    I feel bad for the children you guys have been mentioning! I would never want to traumatize my child like that! After all, they are the ones that have to live with the name!

    I used to work with a nurse who named his son Steele. It's not that I don't like the name, its cute, but its just "different".

    Please don't take offense if you no someone with that name.
