I’ve heard of a Vanjessitha [like her mom couldn’t decide between [name]Vanessa[/name], [name]Jessica[/name] and [name]Tabitha[/name]]
Or Passionate and Furious? [sister and brother]
Yeah. I’ve met them all…
My friend’s mom is a secretary at an elementary school and one of the students is named --ley. Prounounced Dashley. Seriously.
[name]Man[/name] some of these are awful!!
My weirdest is Rowdy. Given name, not a nickname. Poor kid.
O’ni’cha her mom loves apostrophes because her sisters names are
I know a girl named Dayonara (day-uh-nair-uh)
That’s interesting, 'cause now that I think about it, I was introduced to a woman named [name]Dayo[/name]. I wonder if that was her full name. I called her [name]Dale[/name] by accident and then her friend corrected me.
Not as funny as some of the others but still: “Tankred”
I heard the name in the news today, he’s a speaker for medecins sans frontieres in Germany and he is [name]German[/name]. But I’m too and I’ve never heard of that name before…

And, all from New Zealand :
[name]Talula[/name] Does The Hula From [name]Hawaii[/name] (the court made her parents change it when they found out)
Number 16 Bus Shelter (is this following the where-they-were-conceived trend?)
[name]Benson[/name] and Hedges (twins)
[name]Keenan[/name] Got [name]Lucy[/name]
[name]Cinderella[/name] Beauty [name]Blossom[/name] (I’m thinking [name]Blossom[/name] as in the Powerpuff Girl)
[name]Fish[/name] and Chips (twins).
I read one a while back where parents had tried to name their son something along the lines of 011101010101000001111101010011101001 - pronounced [name]Bill[/name]. Or something like that.
I don’t understand what people are thinking when they do these things!
I’ve never heard of “[name]Bill[/name]” before, but he has a Swedish counterpart named [name]Albin[/name] whose parents originally wanted to name him Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116. It was a protest against a new law that said the Swedish government could refuse to register the birth if a name was considered obsene/rediculous. There was also a Chinese couple who wanted to name their son @, but couldn’t b/c the computers can’t register the name in a Mandarin character.
Names of students I have taught:

I know a S’Jara
I know a Cancer (nn Crab)
