My brother had a classmate named Oadley (Pronounced Oddly.) Poor little guy! Plus there are brothers I know named Bunrathany (prn. Bon-RAT-any), Bunrathana (prn. Bon-RAT-an-uh) and Bunrathamony (prn. Bon-RAT-uh-mony.) They all go by Rat as well.
There was also a girl in his class named Loveline (Love-LEEN) and a group of sibling and cousin girls who were Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring.
I have heard that La-a story countless times even a close friend who claimed she knew one. I hate urban legends! Another friend overheard a mother calling her daughters April, May and you guest it... June.
There was a girl in my kindergarten class named Sanatha which always bothered me. Samantha is a fine name, why mess with it!
I know a girl whose first name is Melanie, goes by Mel and her middle name is Esther... yep, molester!
A long time ago I saw an MTV true life about embarrassing parents. There was a set of sisters whose parents were clowns. The girls names were
And I can't remember the last one! Tele, Ana, mono, mili
Oh my I think it was Millie...
I just remember thinking that it was odd they were embarrassed that the parents were clowns but not that they all had these silly names!
I work in a school and keep a folder of hilarious names...the ones I remember are more funny combos than the name itself. There is a Rachel Rachel, Peter tan, Ana Montana, Snow White, seraphina gianacakes, there are more but they are at my desk at work
Agree! I can't believe how many people actually claim to know someone with these names!

Boy do i have lots.... but I'll only say the worst
Found these ones while looking for names for my little one:
Katniss- I know she was a character in a book, but it's not actually a good name
Gardner- Is she going to be a gardener? Maybe!
Coco-lynn- a mother liked the name coco and wanted to honor her mother by adding lynn. Didn't work
Names I've come across in life
Princess and Prince- I knew twins named these
Margarita- who surprisingly enough was an alcoholic
Cookie- the poor girl hated it!
Papi- A friend of mine who made me put his name in here
Renaissance- Just no...
I'm kinda speechless while reading this thread..
The worst names I know were Princess and Printer (boy), I don't know them in person but they are my juniors in college. Laughed about it a lot with my ex-roommate, especially Printer..
These aren't the worst at all, but I thought they were interesting...I met a little girl named Princessa. She was in a class I was substitute teaching for. Another time, I was subbing in the computer lab and while flipping through the login cards I saw one for a kid named Draconus. Unfortunately his class wasn't coming to the lab that day - I really wanted to meet that kid.
My least favorite name is Nevaeh. Sorry to anyone who has it or likes it. It's just not that creative. Also, is it just me, or does it seem kind of morbid in a way to name a kid Heaven? When my daughter was in NICU, the little preemie in the next room was named Nevaeh.
I know this has already been mentioned, but a lot of people are just sharing urban legends. Maybe we shouldn't bring it up if we didn't experience it first hand? Also, I've noticed a few instances where people were calling out a made up or misspelled name, when it was actually just from a different culture. Not very tactful.
On T and Tiaras there was a girl named Iyslah. Prn like ice -la. I was mortified for that girl. Honestly it doesn't sound hideous but the spelling leaves the pronunciation as anyone's guess. Ick.
@thatkathryngirl I really hate Nevaeh. I find it trashy
I know most of the dash names are urban legends, but I actually know a girl called K-La, just pronounced like Kayla.
I can't stand Bruce or Vincent.
