There's a whole generation of Danes with names like Hans Hansen, Jens Jensen, Lars Larsen......
My Nana named her kids: Donna, Diana, Don and Peggy. I guess she ran out of D-names.

I know a guy named Richard Rash. He would get called "Dick" al the time for short, haha.
My friend named her baby "Job," like in the Bible.
I knew a guy named Spencer Taj Mahall in junior high and a girl named Cyn in high school (pronounced sin). There was also Miracle, Storm, Pepper, Breezy, Heavenly, and Happy (all girls).
And my hubby went to school with Cinderella, who went by Cindy.

There were lots of Jennifer's in my high school but we have never come across another Jennifer the whole time my child has been going to school (she is in 7th grade now).I'm glad we've moved beyond Joshua and Jennifer, but I wonder if there's such a thing as going too far. Twenty years from now, might we see a rebound generation named Robert and Thomas and Lisa and Annemarie?
We have a client named Dimple. She goes by Dee.
My daughter has a friend named Mercedes. She has another friend named - and I don't know how on EARTH to spell it so I will pronounce it - Ka-ou-wee.
There is a family we know with a daughter named Liberty.
My nephew's name is Ethan. Not unusual except his middle name is Allen (Like the furniture company)
My cousin named his daughter Falon (aparently it was a character on Falcon Crest or Dynasty)
My mom had a friend who named her daughter Palma Lynn.
Had a music teacher in Junior High who's last name was Eader. We use to joke that it was a good thing his parents didn't name him Peter
Of course there is the neighbor who named her twins LemonJello & OrangeJello....JUST KIDDING :chuckleLast edit by rn in 3 years on Oct 14, '05
Oct 14, '05Joined: Sep '05; Posts: 20; Likes: 2hehe, honestly I love the unique names... I don't like the "regular" set of names, John, Jane, etc. Some of the names you guys are listing I'd NAME a baby, well, not the whacky ones that are conglomorates of verbs or odd words and such, but like Cinnamon, Maverick, etc. Those are great.
My son is Riordan Cian (Rye-or-dan Key-ahn).. it's celtic. He goes by Rory however 'cause most folks butcher it... will sign him up for school as Rory. He can have the option of using it later in life if he wants to be unique.
My name is not terribly common though you do hear it, but I loved being the only "Janine" (Ja-neen) in my school/classes/whathaveyou. No one seems to ever pronounce my name right which surprises me cause it's not THAT uncommon.

When I have extra time I go in and volunteer at my daughters pre-k. Anyway, on this day I was helping one of the other teachers glue some pictures on construction paper. I came across one that said Tiger Lilly, and said outloud "I wonder where they came up with that nickname, it's kinda cute". Go to find out, that is the childs true name...Tiger Lilly (first name) Gonzalez (last name)
Poor Poor Baby
