    I got teased a lot when growing up, my given name is BREE

    but what was almost worse was my maiden name PAYNE, I was always a Pain in the A**
    But I love your name! I think it is very pretty. What in the world were you teased about?

    My husband LOVES the name Brandy. So, if we ever have a girl, he wants to name her that. BUT, I don't want her to get teased. We already have people tell us that their dog's name is Brandy. Or they say stuff like "Brandy wine". I hate that! Names that are are so pretty can just get ripped to shreds!

    I had a patient with the first name Dorkus, can you imagine how she was teased in school? Poor lady!
    Must be an old name -- I was doing genealogy research and I have an ancestor named Dorkus -- a female name -- and I think they were German. Still not a name I would revive!

    Most unusual name I've ever heard at work--Abcdee (pronounced AB C Dee--like rhapsody). It was a name the mother came up with when she was 12. All the names (hers and her sisters) ended in double ee and she wanted to keep the tradition alive.

    Also, a couple on their 3rd baby--Jet. He had brother Fox and sister Silver.

    My sister named her little girl Spencer Rose.... which was odd coming from a family of fairly mainstream names...

    Then she did it again with her other little girl... Naming her Sawyer Lynn....

    My daughter couldn't say Sawyer Lynn.... so instead, she called her soiled linens.... funny to me, the nurse... not so funny to my sister

    And my husband's sister named her little girl.... India Rain..... Kinda cute, but different for sure

    I read a birth announcement in the paper a while ago and saw a child named Fantasy Skyy Princess. At least she won't have to worry about other classmates having the same name!!

    My roommate's grandpa's first (or middle -- I forget) name is K, and that's what he goes by. My roommate decided to follow suit and try to name his children single-letter names. I'm trying to convince him that that's not a smart idea, so we struck a compromise -- our cat is named Q.
