Wow…. All of these are just sooo bad! 

I’d hate to be that kid in school!

A girl I went to high school with had two boys in the past few years and named them Frodo and Sam.  Seriously.

There is a girl in NY named Boo!- exclamation mark and all. Here’s the article http://articles.nydailynews.com/2010-10-31/local/27079738_1_boo-exclamation-point-brooklyn-girl

I know a girl who named her first daughter Memory and then had a second daughter who she named Trinity. Trinity is a fine name but she admittedly hated the name before she had her. I don’t understand why you would hate a name but go ahead and name your child that. The biggest problem with Memory is sometimes she pronounces it Mamory. Why name your child something you can’t even pronouce correctly? I’m a big name nerd and frequent nameberry.com That site is awesome.

*throws her hands up*  Ok. if you want to continue to believe a roundly and universally  debunked, completely BS urban legend that began as a racist joke email, be my guest.   Everyone with two shreds of common sense, as evidenced by how quickly and repeatedly the posters here have chimed in, will just nod and smile next time you tell them about your friend Le-A.

@mandypop: Wow, no need to get upset. I’m not talking about La-A, I’m talking about Orangejello and Lemonjello. And I’m sorry you clearly think I have no common sense, but I’ve seen proof of their existence, so I will keep believing it.

I know someone called Rainbow.  And another unusual one is Blue, but I know a couple of people with that.  I have a friend whose 2 year olds middle name is Danger, not my style but he’s got a normal first name.

@MrsB-to-Be: I hate stupid spellings too, why does it matter?

ETA: I also went to school with a guy called Hiro (pronounced in Hero)

There’s a man in my town named Peter Wacker. How do I know this? We had a school project in elementary school to try and find the strangest name in our phone book. Needless to say, we found that name, and I still randomly check to see if he’s still in there. And we definetly prank called him in middle school. 

Other than that, I’ve never ran into anyone with a really  ridiculous name. A few people with double names (Holly Holly, Rick Rickson, Richard Richards), which I will never understand, but I think people are pretty tame around here. Although I did meet a Princess once, but I don’t think that’s totally unheard of.

I am SO SO sorry that I offended anyone on the boards!  I had no idea that there were any racial undertones to the name I mentioned earlier but now that I’m aware I’ll be sure to not bring it up again.

Thank you for the info and sorry again bee’s for my mis-informed post!

🙂     I didn’t know at first either.  I heard it from a coworker, jeez – 5 years ago now?  Passed it on, got PWND by someone who knew better, and immediately felt like a dope.  Its absolutely incredible how quickly and throroughly things spread thanks to the interwebz!!

I have a friend whose last name is Abbot and his dad wanted to name him Peter. Peter Abbot. Fortunately his mom vetoed that idea! He ended up marrying a girl named Abby though, so she’s Abby Abbot. I also did music at a wedding once and the girl became Kimberly Kimbers.

In one of my college classes there was a girl named precious, and a girl in high school I remember at graduation hearing her full name, was named Charlotte Princess. its cute, but not something I would ever pick. I also baby sat for a girl named Hennessy– witch all I could think of was the drink.
