    My friend is a supply teacher and one of the names of a girl in her class was “Le-a”… including the punctuation.  Now you might think it was a weird way of spelling Leah, but you’d be wrong.  Her name is pronounced “LeDASHa”.  Seriously!

    I know a girl who named her kid Lylie. For the longest time I thought it was pronounced “Lie-Lee” because I only ever saw it posted on FB. Imagine my surprise when I was told it was actually “Lilly”. Sorry guys, she will forever be Lielee to me (and probably everyone else she ever comes into contact with). When you give your kid a stupid name or spell it in a way that pretty much assures he/she will never be able to get a pen with their name on it, you should be punched in the face. Your desire to be unique is going to follow your kid for the rest of their life. Good job at failing at the very first decision you made as a parent. Hopefully that doesn’t become a trend.

    Is anyone else sitting here reading the OP and thinking that Bryndyl is actually a pretty awesome name?  😉

    @jivet:  I KNOW A Lah-dash-a (spelled La-a). She goes by L (pronounced “Elle”) and curses her mother behind her back.

    Honestly, I think it’s a case of one or the other:

     

    1) the parent wants to be unique

    2) the parent can’t spell.  (Ex:  my cousin named her son Camren.  I said, “isn’t it Cameron?”)

    @MrsSanchizel:  Totally agree and I always get flamed for it!

    Can you imagine the next Steve Jobs being named Jayden Smith or Skylar Jones? Geez. And those aren’t even as bad as some of the ones I’ve heard lately.

    I feel bad for teachers lol. They must shake their heads a LOT.

    And I thought it was bad there were 5 Ashleys and 3 Jennifers in all my classes growing up. That doesn’t seem so bad now!

    Names don’t have to be boring or uber traditional, but I think that names are getting ridiculous these days.

    My name’s Alycia so obviously there’s a Y in the place of the I and I LOVE my name.  I personally dislike plain names why would you want the same name as a million other ppl???
