Checked my state for "less common names," each of these has at least 5 children born in my state last year:
Jihad, Jabriel, Broden, Benadiah, Tayden, Seven, Sabastian, Rylen, Raylan, Quran, Giuseppe (like the shoe?), Dontae, Avant (avant garde?), Royal, Kash, Case, Cannon, Jowell, Lyric (on a boy), Syncere, Christ (There were 12), Legend, Crosby (hockey player's last name), Benuel, Messiah, Maxim (like the gentleman's magazine)
Reem, Nicholas (on 5 girls), Joseph (also 5 girls), Aubrielle, 5 female Alexanders, Princess, Messiah, Julissa, Jenesis, Treasure, Skylynn, Blessing, Taylin, Precious, Skylee, Jazlynn
I also know a girl name Ruxandria, who goes by Roxie
I heard this one from my aunt: La-a. It's bad enough just like that, but it's pronounced Ladasha. The dash in the middle is literally said like the word. I feel so bad for that little girl.
Le-a urban legend has been mentioned four seperate times in this thread now, and the fact that it's a popular urban legend has been addressed multiple times now too.
No disrespect to anyone who posted it. I'm just so tired of it.
