Most unique names in your class?

This thread is similar to the classes with multiple of the same name thread, but instead, list the most unique names you’ve come across in your classes (growing up, observing, and/or teaching)! You can also include unique spellings of more common names.

I’ve had a single class in elementary school with people named:

Tyrus (b)
Kamie (g)
Kevren (b)
[name_u]Ryan[/name_u] (g)
[name_f]Aubree[/name_f] (g)

Heike (hi-[name_u]Kay[/name_u])
In one class-2 girls named [name_f]Ellie[/name_f], an [name_f]Elliana[/name_f], and a teacher named Ellana.
[name_u]Blaise[/name_u] (b)
[name_m]Vince[/name_m]
[name_u]Eden[/name_u] (g)
[name_u]Kimberly[/name_u]
[name_u]Luca[/name_u] (b)

[name_m]Samuell[/name_m]@ (She had a funny story about how she was named- her dad wanted her name to end with [name_f]Ella[/name_f] and he was listing “[name_f]Emanuella[/name_f], [name_f]Isabella[/name_f], [name_f]Samuella[/name_f]” with [name_f]Samuella[/name_f] as a joke (samuel was their boy choice) but then they realized it was an actual name and they liked it)
M@ttingly (She was named after [name_m]Don[/name_m] MAttingly)
Y@insley

SwEeT C0ncepT!0n.

Double first name.

It’s been over ten years since I knew this girl, and I still wonder what her mother was thinking when she made this decision, and then stuck to it. So yes, Berries, you can name your kids [name_m]Endymion[/name_m], [name_f]Reverie[/name_f], and [name_f]Titiana[/name_f]. SwEet C0ncept!0n made it through school, and so can your kid. :slight_smile:

Not exactly unique, but there were 3 girls in my year group out of about 130 with the same name but all spelt differently - [name_f]Susanna[/name_f], [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] and [name_f]Suzannah[/name_f]! Once, they were all in my [name_f]English[/name_f] class! There were also 2 girls named [name_f]Nicki[/name_f] and 2 girls named [name_u]Toni[/name_u] in my class which was unusual. There were quite a few unique names in my year group - [name_f]Acacia[/name_f], [name_f]Tulip[/name_f], Kateland, [name_f]Estella[/name_f], a [name_f]Winny[/name_f] and a [name_f]Wynona[/name_f]! At my previous school there was a Kowhai (g), Joto (b) and [name_m]Tadhg[/name_m] (b). At university last year, I came across a Miffy and a Winky… very amusing names! I live in an area of Australia with a significant [name_f]Asian[/name_f] population - most of these names have been given to children of Chinese backgrounds, which is interesting, as their parents tend to pick names out of the ordinary!

It reminds me to “Inmaculada Concepción” in Spanish. Inmaculate Conception It’s a pretty common girl, and both Inmaculada are Concepción are really common among women -+40. They usually go by Inma or [name_f]Concha[/name_f].

And yes, there was a Inmaculada Concepción, Inma, in my class when I was in Primary School.

How interesting! The girl was not Latinx, but I can see where the thought behind the name might be similar.
