    My grandmother's name is Mary Prairie (Merry prairie). I never thought anything of it, but people always giggle when I tell them her name.

    Have a friend who named her daughter Hanna and her last name's Gram. hannagram - I think that's terrible. My daughter has a friend in 4th grade named January, last name Waters - I like that. I also like Lyric - different but pretty. There are way too many Jacks and Madisons right now. I think something a little different is ok as long as it's not weird. Just my 2 cents.

    These are ones I know of personally:
    Orangejello and Lemonjello (yes were twins and this wasn't a hoax)
    Hope, Charity, & Faith (were sisters)
    Robin Hood
    Winnie (Winifred) (my great aunts name--guess that was popular back then)

    Go figure!
