    When I was a CNA at the local hospital we had a couple who named their baby Auburn. They both were graduates of Auburn University and lived in Auburn. I know that kid enjoys game season with everyone having your name posted on their cars or clothes.

    A couple I knew a while ago named their children Tequilla Jade (girl) and Jazz (boy).

    A girl in my hometown was named Shady Grove.

    And another set of friends named their son Hamish.

    Go figure. Annjeh

    This made me think of my elementary school teacher. Her name was Mrs. Roach. I remember many a day kids laughing about that. One kid even bought her a can of Raid bug spray as a Christmas gift.

    I know a woman who named all her kids after cars: Mercedes, Lexxus (spelled that way), Chevy, and Kia.

    I work in a hospital were the parents named their son, King Arthur. King as the first name and Arthur as the middle name. Dad said the next child would be Prince (or Princess) Arthur. Yes, even if it's a girl.

    Quote from VSRN
    I once heard of a mom who named her child Nosmoking.....said it was the last thing she saw before her c/s. I also had a teen mom who named her child Margarita......(sad). I learned from many years working with new parents how to keep a straight face.
    Margarita is actually a very common Hispanic name.
