In the field that I work I deal with people all the time. I have heard some of craziest names. This is thread is intended to list the craziest names ever heard:
A co-worker in our parent company has a granddaughter named "ABCD"...pronounced Ab-si-dee.
Popular female names in Cuba after the Russian/Balkan communist influence - This generation is called GENERATION Y. I only picked those names that end with KA. There are thousands of other Y names.
My memory says that some celebrity a long time ago legally named their kid that. Or maybe it was the wife's name.
As to whether it’s true or not, someone else can look it up to confirm or refute.
paradigm~you are correct. I don't remember her name but she was (is) a singer.
Wow now that is a weird name "Moon Unit" I wonder what the kids at school called the child
frank zappa named his child moon unit.
I had to take a look on Wikipedia - she really is called Moon Unit Zappa. That has a kind of ring to it.
Here in Germany, the Registrar decides whether you can give your child the name you choose. That's why Germans usually have conventional names. The idea is to protect the child from possible ridicule later in life - school etc.
Still, I don't agree with it - I think it encroaches freedom of choice.
I think that Moon Unit has a brother named Dweezil, doesn't she? I didn't look to double-check, but I'm almost positive.
I went to one of those all-girl Catholic high schools, and we had kids with some very strange names. A girl a few years ahead of me was named Candy Cain, identical twins a year behind me were Chip and Dale, and there was an Asian family that sent their daughters there--Lailing, Laiping and Laipong Wong. Oh, and their neice Laifung attended the preschool.
All I can think about is the sexual inuendos that will come later in life for Candy Cain as well as Chip and Dale! I have never been a fan of naming children something that could so easily be picked on later. To each their own, I guess!
There was an article about a woman who named her twin daughters Orangelo and Lemangelo because orange jello an lemon jello were on the hospital's menu the day they were born.
There are so many others I have heard over the years but those two have stuck in my memory!
David Bowie called his son Zowie Bowie, but Zowie changed that, and now calls himself Joey Bowie.
His full name is Duncan Zowie Hayward Jones.
hae you ever seen any pictures of his children, i would love to see some, and see if they are good singers ......
A kindergaten teacher I know, had a girl in her class named what sounded like "Fem-AHL-lee" Sanchez. Her mother, who spoke no English at the time, thought that American hospitals assigned the names and she didn't want to rock the boat. The sign on her newborn's crib said "Female Sanchez".
I once had a client who's first name was Clitoris. She went by Tori.
And my sister once told me she met someone who was named Placenta.
What were their parents thinking?!
I knew another little girl who was named Cambria which actually sounds rather pretty Her mother said she was conceived on their honeymoon in a beautiful seaside resort town here in California which is called Cambria Pines.
We all thought their daughter was lucky they didn't go to Oxnard.
I remember a doctor at a local hospital with the last name of "Doctor". Once I heard him paged over the intercom, "Doctor Doctor, please call blah, blah, blah..."!!!
I also grew up with a boy whose father's name was Harry Barry--always thought that was funny, along with another man in town named Charlie Brown...
My son used to date a girl named Dawn Sunshine...I thought that was kind of pretty, though!

It's still a bit early, but in about 3 to 4 weeks my Drenthe Heath sheep will start lamb again. Since a few years I have been giving my lambs the names of my (former) fellow Squidoo writers. I like giving my lambs names, but it's always difficult to come up with some nice ones. So this year I'll...
