    One of my co-workers swears they went to school with a Harold Richard Head. I don't think I need to point out the nickname possibilities.

    my hubby does social security disability and he swears that he personally has seen people named lemonjello and orangejello (pronounced le-mohngello and or-ahngello). i don't know.

    urban myth dennie. i have heard that one a million times.:d

    isn't there an old story about a hispanic lady who had a baby girl and saw "female" written on her baby girl's layette.......so she thought they had named it for her?? female hernandez. pronounced "fehmallee

    We've had several interesting one's in here..

    Justin Time

    Sunshine Jump

    Twins named "Orangejello and Lemonjello" Pronounced Orangello and Leamngello

    Dalastin (planned on him being "the last one"). Had baby sister 10 months later.

    Fucquaya..I'll let ya'll sound that one out for yourselves

    seems like people who name their babies strange names end up with sick kids...
    could be the genes, eh?

    After 30 years of pediatrics, I've heard a lot of UNUSUAL names! These are a few that come to mind.
    Diamond Dick - named after grandpa
    Darvonne - named after gramndma's medicine.
    Porsha, Mercedes and other car names
    Precious Miracle Tomorrow Hope and then another named Precious Miracle Tomorrow's Hope
    Triplets-Shaquita, Tequila and Markeeta
    Chandilier - not sure how spelled it now
    November Dawn
    Spring Forest

    Some are the unusual (creative) spelling
    Nike -pronounced like Nicki
    Ambyr - never thought there was another way to spell Amber
    Shunleo - mother pronounced it differently the three times I heard her say it.

    I guess I take the cake! My oldest daughter was going to be Portia (from the Merchant of Venice, not the car), until my hubby came up with an even better name from the next piece of classic literature he read.

    My youngest is on AHRN's list, although spelled differently. I won't give their names here, but suffice it to say that they never have had and probably never will have any duplicates in their classes!
