I always thought it was such a pretty name until I mentioned her to my mom and my mom was like, " WHAT"S her name?! Her parents got it out of a dictionary. I guess they didn't read the definition. She has since changed her name to " Yola" because of all the ridicule.

twins from last night - gypsy and cinnamon. (what a great start to their porn/stripper careers)
orion - (baby boy) - ok, this one did have a romantic, constellation engagement story behind it, so it's not so bad, but still a strange, out-there name.
orzio - another baby boy - poor kid
and, drumroll please..................... :hatparty:
happy birthday to the winner of the year:
queen messiah jesus christ
oh yes, that was the baby's full, legal name for the birth certificate. oh how wonderful.
give me a few more births to attend at work, and i'm sure to have more to add. i have definitely noticed a trend towards the unusual/unique names lately. some of them sound and look just like random letters thrown together, that i can't even recall them once i get home.
the poor, poor kids........

We read over the earliest entries and realized that some are now considered "mainstream". I do not think Queen Messiah Jesus Christ will ever become mainstream, but who knows. Wonder how these kids feel years later or how the parents feel when they sober up. Some names I have seen look like they originated from alphabet soup---whatever floats to the top becomes a name.
