Talking about the blue thing, have a friend whose babies middle name is sky and their last name is blue.
Then there was one Whose name was Crystal Lier, wasn't to bad until you put the middle name in it. Crystal Shanda Lier.

I usually just look.....but I have to say that I cannot believe Miranda is being put in with the weird name thread.......this is my name by the way, and while it is not that common, I have never thought of it as weird, I had a girl in my high school graduating class named this also.... oh wellHow about these...Miranda, Cymphany, Drako, and Dravin...Names of nieces/nephews. My niece Carisma just named her baby Enchantment, I swear I tried to talk her out of it.
