I spent 3 months working at a school for the visually impaired, these were some of the many names I saw:
Connor (for a girl)
Syanthay (not even sure how this one's said)
My daughter also has these names in her class:
Kc-Ann (Kasey Ann)
why...why would you name your child Kc-Ann?
An old friend of mine recently had twin boys and named on Nickles. I assume she meant it to be Nicholas, but Nickles looks like it should be pronounced like the plural of the American five cent coin.
In the UK, one of our most famous chefs is Jamie Oliver. If you didn't know, his children have the most sickly sweet names!
The girls are:
~ Poppy Honey Rosie
~ Petal Blossom Rainbow
~ Daisy Boo Pamela
And the boy:
~ Buddy Bear Maurice
My cousin, who already has a daughter named Chloé, had a baby less than a year ago and named her Kylia. Bear in mind my cousin is french, and in french the pronouciation would amount to Kill-YUH, as in "I'll kill ya !"
I know it's tame next to some other names in this thread but my jaw really dropped with this one. In France there is definitely a trashy factor when you use a foreign name and you can't even be bothered to attempt to pronounce it right. Plus the massive contrast with her big sister's name, which is very common and ordinary in France. It really took some getting used to. Goes to show you just don't know people as well as you think huh ?
Noah (Noa) is a legit Hebrew girl's name. My first thought when I saw Havah was Chava, also a Hebew name. I believe it's a variation.
KC-Ann is pretty awful, though.
I know a Carson (g), Eythan (b), Erin (b) and Dung (g), pronounced doong.
Well I know a baby called Nirvana. At first I couldn't get past the band connection but I actually really like it now, she suits it!
Oh I think this one is my favorite . . .

I used to work in a baby shop in quite a rough area of the city I live in, a woman came in with twin girls called Dolce and Gabanna.... I kid you not.
Met a Mykenzie today. No, it's not just a misspelling of Mackenzie, it's pronounced My-Kenzie. I guess everyone has their own tastes, as Mavis or Saskia (two of my favorites) will probably be ridiculed just as much by most.
