There are certain names that If I ever had a kid, I would never, ever, give him/her: John/Jenny/Sarah/Andrew/etc...the world doesn't need any more Johns or Jennifers. Even my name, Jonathan, is better than just plain John.

I like 'weird' names. Some are really off the wall, but....

If I had a son, I'd want to name him 'River'.

If I had a daughter, I'd want to name her 'Luna'.

Some of the names these hollywood actors and actresses give are just insane.

The actor Rob Morrow named his daughter Tu. Get it. Tu Morrow.

And Jason Lee named his son Pilot Inspektor.

I was in high school with a dear sweet girl whose evil parents had named her 'Velveeta' - so help me!

My brother was in school with a girl named 'Passion Sparrow' - WTF? And then there was the guy in Mr. Blu's high school named 'Star'... cool name, but I immediately think of it as feminine.

I've always been a fan of unusual/unique names, but some parents push it right over the line to bizarre!

some of these names are kinda..excuse me....REALLY


I dont think kids should be named like this. It's just...wrong. They'll get teased at school and just always wish they had a normal name. I like my name, Madeleine aka Maddy, and I also like the name Emma which my parents were going to name me

I don't mind odd names that much as long as there not too far out there like Tinkerbell and whatnot. What I don't like are the newer names that are really popular around here like Madison, Hunter, Stryder, McKayla, etc. It's even worse when people try to make up new spellings for them to be "unique" ie McKayla = MacKaiyhlah. I plan on giving my kids "normal" names, but not the ones that are super common like Mike, John, Katie, Megan. I like Samantha for a girl and Reese for a boy.

It's amazing the amount of people that think I've got a weird name: Lucinda. I don't think it's weird, or difficult to spell, but all the time I come across people that spell it Lucinder or when I tell them my name, say, "Blimey! I think I'll just call you Luc" which really annoys me, because Luc isn't my name

Oh, and people immediately presume that I'm really posh and have a trust fund and a pony that I take to gymkhanas at the weekends. Until I open my mouth, that is

I work for the Police and type statements and tape recorded defendant's interviews, and the names I come across, you wouldn't believe

eg Shavorne (I get the feeling that somebody liked the name Siobhan but didn't bother to find out how to spell it ), Chardonnay (did they not realise that that character's name on Footballer's Wives was ironic ), Oryan (i.e. Orion). The list is endless

That's really annoying when people hear your name and don't even try to say it, but immediately make up some short or different version without asking.

It can't be that difficult, and if you have to try it more than one time.
Learning another language you also can't just say, "I will speak it like that now."


sallycinnamon78, thank you for the information about the middle names.

Lucinda isn't a weird name Not the most common name but certainly not weird...that said the only Lucinda i've ever known annoyed me greatly but this was when I was about 8

Parents should be considerate when naming their children--like anything else the child's best interest should be the first consideration, not what the parents think is clever.

I don't think that means names should be boring. A kid can come to be proud of the uniqueness of their name, even if they are teased a bit as a kid. But names that are bad puns or just plain goofy (i.e. "Tinkerbell") are seriously self-indulgent on the part of the parents.

Absolutely. The kid is going to have to put up with the name for the rest of his/her life (or until they're of age to legally change it). Names from other languages or cultures are fine, but it's really not considerate to name the kid after a Teletubby or a Disney fairy.

Of course, my favorite guitarist named his third daughter Blue Angel...!
