Real Names!? Your thoughts?

So. I was recently looking through my friends list of Facebook and I noticed many of my friends have some very unusual names! I thought I’d share them with you guys and see what you think?
And yes, these are all names of real people.

Let’s start with the Girls:

Brindle (Full Name is Brindle [name]Van[/name] last name here)
Kalette (alt spelling of [name]Colette[/name])
Porsah
Fadwa
[name]Auburn[/name]
Suheli ([name]Sue[/name]-hay-ley)
[name]Rhiannon[/name]
[name]Hallie[/name]
[name]Danah[/name] ([name]Day[/name]-nah)
Tylie
[name]Ilda[/name]

Boys:

[name]Coty[/name]
[name]Paine[/name]
Ylli ([name]Yule[/name]-ee)
[name]Daulton[/name]
[name]Cliff[/name]
Kire

Thoughts? And do you know anyone with an interesting name on your Facebook list?

Wow some unusual ones :slight_smile:

[name]Cliff[/name], [name]Rhiannon[/name], [name]Danah[/name] and [name]Hallie[/name] all seem quite normal to me - [name]Cliff[/name] is old school of course but definitely a well known name, and [name]Rhiannon[/name] is pretty popular over here in the UK I have known quite a few of them.

I quite like the idea of Tylie and [name]Coty[/name]. [name]Daulton[/name] is quite handsome too.

The rest I’m not sure about - particularly Suheli, [name]Hayley[/name] is my own name so it seems odd to me to see it as part of the pronouncation of a new name. [name]Auburn[/name] could grow on me I think

[name]Rhiannon[/name] is mainstream for me (Aus). Some very interesting names on there, yes.

[name]Just[/name] going through my friends:

[name]Torquil[/name]
[name]Steen[/name]
[name]Wyndham[/name]
[name]Pablo[/name]
Ailiche
[name]Gaenor[/name]
Xana

All real… just maybe a little unheard of

Let’s see from my Facebooks:

[name]Dove[/name]
[name]Syed[/name]
Elyna
Tychi
[name]Percival[/name]
[name]Moon[/name]
Titan
[name]Renata[/name]
[name]Rita[/name]
Egil
[name]Kallan[/name]
[name]Crispin[/name]
[name]Thorfin[/name]
[name]Alwin[/name]
Epona
Sunil
[name]Keir[/name]
[name]Jacques[/name]
[name]Rex[/name]
[name]Mitzi[/name]
Vovin
[name]Exa[/name]
[name]Olaf[/name]
[name]Leif[/name]
[name]Johann[/name]
[name]Snow[/name]
Cyrine
[name]Virgil[/name]
[name]Aisha[/name]

Mind you I don’t find these weird [not even [name]Moon[/name]], but I also included some of the older names you don’t hear anymore of people who are my contacts.

Some of these probably aren’t strange in other parts of the world, but are pretty much unheard of in the U.S. Others are names where they are the only one I’ve ever met.

[name]Aliki[/name]
Amisha
[name]Archibald[/name]
[name]Chela[/name]
[name]Claudius[/name]
[name]Cordell[/name]
[name]Dionte[/name]
[name]Dinah[/name]
[name]Dixie[/name]
[name]Ernie[/name]
Hip (pn Heap)
[name]Keary[/name]
[name]Mio[/name]
[name]Shaina[/name]
[name]Taryn[/name]
Trinka
[name]Warren[/name]
