The "silliest" (at least to me) name I've seen is "Candy Apple." This is fairly recent so it stands out in my memory.
I have a friend whose nephew's name is Luke Skywalker.

Shiva or Siva
Bhoomi or Bhooma
Wish I could think of the others right now. Some of them are just not so great American names.
My grandfather's grandparents had so many kids they ran out of names.Each one had ABC initials. The last one was named Alpha Beta Clark. My grandma found it in her geneology records so we know it's true. My uncle's name, true to tradition, is Aric Bane Clark. Lovely middle name, eh? My dad's name is Allen Bedford. Bedford means "across the bed."
I know someone who named their daughter Luthien after the Lord of the Rings movie. Another one named her daughter Aylah after the Clan of the Cave Bear books.
I went to school with three sisters named Faith, Hope, and Charity. Hope passed away and Charity did NOT live up to her name at all.Last edit by AmericanChai on Nov 10, '06

That's what they offered her on the menu every day & she thought they were "cute" names for her girls. Even worse however, was the mother who named her baby girl Chlamydia becuase it was such a beautiful name....

Nov 20, '06Joined: Sep '03; Posts: 2,375; Likes: 2,862I have a new one. A beautiful little girl, the youngest of several for this lovely couple and they have decided the last. All of the children are girls and dad had always envisioned having a child named after him. Yea, this is not going well, is it?
So they name the little girl after her daddy Ralph, her name is Ralphnie (Ralph-nee). Poor little girl.
