    Let's see there was Vinita (name of the town where the State Hospital was located), then there was Polaris (mom saw it on a sign), the twins named Sunny and Hunny(note the spelling), many many Heavens, Heaven Leighs, Miracle (which is usually an oxymoron), Precious Angel, and Lovely.
    I have formulated a set of rules I wish we could get legislated.
    #1 If the child will never be able to say or spell the name.
    #2 If the child will never be able to pronounce the name.
    #3 If it will get them beat up at school.
    #4 If it is just plain stupid.
    Then we will assign you a name for your baby.
    ROTFL no no not Polaris!!!!!!!

    Have any of y'all ever seen the movie/read the book 'Where the Heart Is' ? Character in the movie/book named her kids after food....brownie, praline, cherry, and I forget the last one. Scary how close to reality that actually is.
    The last one was Baby Ruth. (One of my favorite books/movies.)

    Makavelli and Dartanyun
    My bil wanted to name his son Dartanyun (actually Dartagnan in French) but my sis was afraid people would shorten it to Dart so they agreed on Tanyan.

    I have a great aunt named Poutine

    is she from Quebec?
    can't say that sounds appetizing to me - I've never been a big fan of poutine (I'm from Canada) although I have friends who claim that it's the best remedy for a hangover (I've always had good success with the rapid ingestion of Harvey's cheeseburgers - yum - with an ENO chaser........)

    You gotta love the old names people used to be called, usually with religious themes (the french-canadians anyway). My grandmother was such a religious fanatic that 3 of her daughters had Marie (mary) in their names. Two of my great-grandfathers were named Magloire and Pamphille. I used to work with an Archange (arch angel). I used to care for a Ressurecion.
    yup - my dad is one of 9 french-canadians and the 6 boys have "Joseph" as one of their middle-names and the 3 girls have "Marie"............
