      I would have died of complete embarrassment if my parents would have named me "ABCD"

    “Moon Unit”

    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.

        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. smile

            yeah - you're right; Dweezil Zappa, a rock guitarist. Not bad either, but Moon Unit Zappa does have a better ring smile

    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. smile

      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! smile

    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!

        I remembered people talking about it back in the 70s, and this thread reminded me. All I know of him is what I just read on Wikipedia. Take a look. There's a photo too.

    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 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.

        Now a Doctor with that name cannot have much success in his practice because no one could have taken him serious (LOL)!

      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...lol

      My son used to date a girl named Dawn Sunshine...I thought that was kind of pretty, though!
