Now, some people may think that's endearing or whatever, but to me it sounds like a name you'd give your poodle or a stripper.
That's actually my cousin's name. I've never heard of anyone else by that name though. Maybe it's an ethnic thing? Hm.

Love was the last name. I usually hate unusual names but this one made me smile

Reminded me of a set of twins I used to go to school with named Dathan and Jathan. These matchy names would drive me nuts if I was their mom. I already mix up my kids names sometimes and I only have one boy and one girl!
I also spent a day in a NICU unit this week. One nurse said she sees so many names she can't pronounce that she usually calls her patients "baby girl" or "baby boy" and leaves it at that.

Also have a friend who named her baby Nirvana.

Don't know if anyone has entered this yet but a patient named her daughter Female (Pronounced Fee-Mah-Lee) because she saw it on the baby band! You know how we write "Female" following mom's last name. Ie: if the mom's last name is Wilson, we write Wilson, Female. Well, mom was not american and kept it as baby's name.
I've also seen ABCDE as a first name for a girl. Pronounced Ab-see-dee....
I'm sure I'll see more as time goes by....
