    I had a Plastika Noriega (pronounced PlastikaNoreeeka)

    ChickenA' (Sheekeena) looked like chicken A
    Tinea Capita....sheesh ringworm?

    My sis worked at the dept of social services and said the names follow the soaps....Kayla, Kim, Hope etc.

    Of course my hubby's birth certificate read BABY BOY ___ until he went in the Army at age 23, and needed to pick up a birth certificate. We had to go in and change his name!
    Are you a Days of Our Lives Fan? If you remember the character Kimberly Brady (patsy pease)...I actually am very close friends with her sister Kesley, who was never in show business. We were friends for about 6 months before she just casually mentioned this and I about fell out on the floor.

    Forgot about the twins we had recently:

    Faith Charity
    Hope Chastity
    Don't remember if I already posted about these names in this thread, but...

    Years ago our unit had triplets who were supposed to be all girls per ultrasound, and the parents were going to name them Faith, Hope, and Charity. Well, they ended up being two girls and a boy. New names?

    Faith, Hope, and Charlie.

    The most unusal name I've seen so far was..Bacardi (like the rum). I've also seen the middle name of Seamus (not knowing that it was a Irish name until many people on this board have informed me of.....I was saying it the way it looks) I'm from the south forgive me!!!!

    That's just wrong!
    Bacardi is just disgusting and tacky.

    Seamus is actually a very common name in Irish families.

    Ok this is from working in a peds/family practice office and daycare for two years.
    Raina Hope (first and middle name).
    Brothers named Remington Guage and Forest Hunter (Dad was a hunter)
    Every imaginable spelling for Caleb, Emily, Michaela, Jacob, and Mariah.
    Same woman who named her daughter Raina Hope named her other daughter "Shiktrika" which is an old gothic word for "female vampire".
    A girl named Katwanna.
    The irish boy name of Declan.
    Charianna for a girl.
    A friend almost named her girl "Stormy Nicole" (bleah, white trash soap opera name:imbar).
    My husband named his pet bird Chester Polyester as a child.
    A little girl named Harley Davidson.
    But one name I did happen to like was the old gaelic way to spell Patrick:
    Padraig. Hated the gaelic name "Moarag", for a little girl.
    But to each his own. Kids will make fun of any name for any reason if they can. If they don't make fun of their name it will be something else they will find.

    Oh I also went to school with a girl whose name was Stormy and had sisters named: Misty, Summer, and Winter.
    I had a friend named Autumn Day (day her last name) Her sister's name was Summer day who named her child Winter Snow Day. Then Autumn named her child Liberty Bell (bell being her last name).

    Had a doctor years ago tell me that he had delivered twin girls to a mrs. hogg; named them Ima and Ura. He thought it was hilarious!
    There was an Ima Hogg who was the daughter of a governor of Texas (Around 1900, I think). Ima was quite a philanthropist, and her name is probably still found in Texas. No sister Ura, tho--she only had brothers. I wonder if the doctor's patient was a Texan?

    Ryker. My cousin actually named his son this. Everytime I see Ryker I want to call him 'Numer One.' My ex-husband(a huge Star Trek fan and yes I know the spelling is different) laughed himself silly when I told him what my cousin was going to name his son.
