    my contribution seems a little tame. In our office we have sisters named coral and sandy beach. I don't know the spelling but there is also a doctor whose last name is pronounced cocaine.

    My step-brother has a son named Ien, pronounced like ion, which is a combination of Ian and Triena. His other daughter, with a different mom, is named Feather. Of course, I can't talk, my middle name is Peace. Comes from being born during the Vietnam War. My brother's middle name is Ulysses. His initials are D.U.D. What were my parents thinking??

    When the Health Dept. lady asked the mother for the baby's name, she said ( I SWEAR!) "I don't know how to pronounce it, but I made it up, and I have it written down." She then reached into the drawer of her bedside table and pulled out a small piece of notepaper. On it were 23 DIFFERENT LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET! [/B]
    So...what 3 letters did she leave out? ROFLOL!!! :chuckle

    Best wishes,

    Whenever I think of this, I'm :roll ROTFLMAO about the name of Giovanni Turnipseed. I think Mom was very Italian, and Dad was American Indian. He has every right to his name, but every now and then, we ALL need a laugh (I hate to think at the expense of another, but...). I'm sorry Giovanni, if I'm picking on you, but by now, you're probably 20 or so and can deal with name calling!

    I also knew a girl who was named Shannon Shanyn (first and middle)...then...she married a man whose last name was.....you guessed it...Shannon!!! Making her Shannon Shanyn Shannon!!! Poor girl got hassled everytime she needed to tell anyone her name!!

    Anyone from West Texas will appreciate this one. Some of you may even know him. We have a doctor named Dusty Weathers. Not sure if his mother named him that but that is the name he practices under!

    Gal from Micronesia (island near Polinesia - ?spelling) had a 2 yo running around the BR during her delivery named Action. I don't know what that means in her language, but in ours... the shoe fit!
