    My husband has an Uncle Eck. Yep, Eck is his real name (a southern thing I assume).

    I know of a little girl named Cinnamon.

    A doctor named Richard Nutt, goes by Dick. (why, I have no idea...)

    I have heard the Lemonjello story before, but Placenta?? Meconium?? "Yes, dear, I named you after tarry, black poop."

    I have seen a Scottish name for a girl "Loaghaire", pronounced "L'heer or L'heery"

    My daughters name is Elisabeth Claire....nothing unusual with that, except when my family started calling her "Eclair".

    I work with toddlers and have heard some interesting names. Journee, Jeslynn, Cale, Awdace (sounds like odessey), Ameerah (like a-mirra),Ireland, Lynnzie, are a few. A co-worker wants to name her baby Azriel Daymion. That is the worst! Isn't Azriel the angel of death????!! :imbar

    What a great laugh some of these names have been (personal fave:
    Dwain Pipe)

    They have all been good or, at least, interesting.

    Firsthand experience:

    Here are mine:

    When I was a student teacher, had a child named Rah!Rah! in my class--seriously!

    My cousin and his wife named their daughter Strickland--they were going for that Southern, aristocratic last name as a first name thing--but I just don't think Strickland works...

    I had also heard of Orangejello, Lemonjello, and Placenta...

    And went to college with a guy named Kelly Green--we always used to call him Navy Blue!

    I think Emerson is pretty and they were probably thinking of Ralph Waldo rather than the appliance maker!

    My son is Lukas (dh is German and that's how they spell it there) Alexander, daughter Madeleine McClurg (after my grandmother).

    Mother-in-Law wanted us to name son Florian--are you kidding me, can you imagine the way he would be picked on???

    Very funny thread!

    My first name is...Memory. (I know of at least 3 other people with my name - not personally, though) - and NO, my middle name is not Lane.
    My daughter has a girl in her class named Tekila (pronounced Tequila).
    Life is hard enough without having to defend your name your whole life.!!

    I have a friend name Emerson. Looked it up and it means "the son of Emery". Now its being used as a girl's name, too, though.

    I've known one person, and heard of another, named Kelly, who had to retain their maiden name because they married men with the Kelly surname. Paige Davis, the former host of Trading Spaces, is married to Patrick Page, but she kept her maiden name, too.

    Pretty much normal names in my immediate family. My son is Christian Avery... and my family thought Avery was weird.

    If I ever have a girl, I'd like to name her Savannah.

    I did know a lady once who let her best friend help her name her baby in the hospital because she hadn't decided on one yet. Jaquavius Jaquis. With a best friend like that, who needs enemies...
