This name was in the phonebook but I don't know about now: Harry Dawg. Currently there is a Goofy Dawg in the phonebook. Some old friends of our family named their son Ezekiel Angus, while some other friends went with Menthol Latham. My cousin just had a baby daughter that they named Flora Bell after the mother's great grandma who hated her name. I met a guy whose name was Cash and his wife's was Cary.
I don't think these have been posted yet, but Frank Zappa named his kids Diva Zappa, Moon Unit Zappa, Dweezil Zappa and Ahmet Zappa. There's also the Phoenix family (real name here); River Phoenix (River Jude Bottom), Leaf Phoenix (Joaquin Rafael Phoenix), Summer Joy Phoenix (<-real name and had a son named Indiana August Affleck named for late brother and married to Casey Affleck, Ben's brother), Rain(bow) Phoenix (Rain Joan of Arc Phoenix had a son named Jonas Winter) and Liberty Phoenix (Libertad Mariposa Phoenix and has kids named Rio Everest Phoenix, Indigo Orion Phoenix and Scarlette Jasmine Phoenix-Asch). I'm sure that last part is as clear as mud, maybe I should make it into a flowchart

Tropicana Tabasco (named because her mom could only drink the orange juice); not really sure why "Tabasco". When she was about 8 she had a baby brother she named "Rainbow". Still see members of this family and its been almost 20 years!@
My all time favorite is 15 or so years ago we were putting a woman to sleep for a crash C-birth. She woke up in recovery and said she heard the most beautiful name: Meconium. So poor Meconium Delight Jones is somewhere...

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........

There is a GYN doc in Virginia named Harry C. Beaver. (I'm not making this up. Everybody knows him.)
When I was pregnant the first time, we had a baby name book. Two (three actually) names that they knew of that were awful:
IfJesushadnotdiedforyoursinsthouwouldstbedamedBare bones. Kid eventually shortened his name to Damned Barebones.
And twin girls in Texas: Kate and Duplikate.
I can't attest personally to tha last two since they were published in a book and I didn't know them personally.
