This one isn't too bad, but my cousin just had a son she named Mavryk.
Can I get this off my chest for a sec? LET LE-A GO. It is a racist anecdote with dubious roots, it's been circulating the Internet for at least five years, and we need to let it go.
Okay. That said, any name I have to sound out phonetically is a big no-no. In my school, we currently have Abigayle, Abbegale and Abbygayle, I kid you not. I've also taught Apinun ("opinion") and, the one that really makes my skin crawl... Kremzyn. I am not fond of Crimson as a name to begin with, but Kremzyn just sets my hair on end.
Kyuhinya (ka nye uh)
An easy winner is Aubraiyeha. I saw that posted by a girl I'm friends with on Facebook a while back. It's supposed to be something similar to Aubrey (I think) and I just dry heave every time I think of it. Here are some others:
Austen (He's a great kid, but I think the -en is just unnecessary. What's wrong with Austin?)
Kyleigh (I just cannot stand it when names end in -eigh. I've seen Aubreigh, Jaymeigh, Harleigh, Ashleigh...What's wrong with -ey or -ie? Or even -ee?! Goodness.)
Emma Lee (It's like Emily.)
Kruz (I don't like this name in general)
I personally love the -leigh ending on some names, and I think different's good, but these are some weird ones;
Emmaleigh is a rather cute way of spelling Emily, imo.
