Not that those names are all that odd really, just odd together.
Some hispanic names seem odd to some of us though they are very average within their culture. We've had an Alfredo (as in sauce) and a Margarita. Difference being that as I said these are absolutely normal average names in hispanic cultures.
"Alfredo" is just the latin version of "Alfred" (just like Juan = John, Pablo = Paul, etc), which is a name that was VERY popular for baby boys in the early 1900s. Alfredo sauce was actually named after the chef who made it popular - Alfredo di Lelio.
As for Margarita, that's just a Latin form of the name "Margaret". It is a name that has been around for many, many years - popular in both Spanish and Russian culture. It also means "daisy flower" in Spanish. One story claims that an admirer created the drink for Rita Hayworth, who's real name was Margarita. :spin:

Also, know of a couple of people who named their daughters after their favorite club drinks:
My sister was considering naming my neice Jarde (Jar-day). She was outvoted. She is going to now name her Dakota Cheynne. I think that is so pretty and much more simpler for her to spell when she gets to pre-school.

So the child wouldn't get hurt; I asked her parents to to please get her. I guess they got upset about it, but they decided to get her. The mother called out "Truly Unique (something) get over here." When they left I said to my coworker 'what a truly unique name for a little girl'.:roll
