    I knew a family once who named kids Babbi and Texas, both girls. All the kids in this family were given mom's maiden name as a middle name. Eleven kids all with the same middle name. Wow!

    Michelle Pumpkin.......poor baby.

    We also had one with the middle name of "Baby". Daddy said "She'll always be MY baby.

    Some names are fine as nicknames, but don't need to be on the birth certificate!

    Someone else may have remembered this and posted this in thier response but I can recall reading an article in the paper (and it seems to me it was along the time or a little before the time my eldest son was born 21 years ago) about a couple who's last name was DuDah naming their newborn Zippity.

    Interesting names! I had a friend growing up whose name was Shannon Dick, her father was named Harold. No kidding, and he WENT BY HARRY!!!!!

    So what do you think of Savannah Rayne and Sahara Blue, weird?
    There was a 'Harry Wong' at my old company. One of my most embarassing 'work moments' happened because of this guy. I received a requisition to install some software for 'Ed Wong'. I then received a phone call shortly thereafter from the requestor who said that she accidentally put the wrong first name for Mr. Wong; it should be Harry instead of Ed. I grabbed the requisition out of my coworker's inbox, scratched out 'Ed' and wrote in 'Harry', without noticing how the name sounded. Pretty soon, my coworker came over to me with the requisition and said, "Is this some kind of prank?" as he handed me the piece of paper with the guy's name on it. Well, it was at that moment that I read the name back to myself, and I blushed! :imbar I stammered, "The requestor called me and told me to change it!" It was a joke around the office for a long time.

    On their 3rd try for a male, our neighbors learned they would have another girl, they named her JOHNETTA. Yes, after her Dad. she was the last one and they wanted a JR!!!
    I didn't think it translated to the female version very well......

    A friend had soooo many Braxton-hicks contractions that she actually named her son "Braxton Hicks" HA HA. although, it is kinda cute.
