    I've been reading the results in the newspapers and I came across two Mongolian names: Jantsan (male) and Bishindee (female). I thought they were quite interesting.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    One name that I have seen that I thought deserved a mention to the berries was a Canadian Hammer Thrower called Sultana Frizell.

    It seems that most of the names of Olympians are quite classic or were very popular at the time of the person's birth -at least for the athletes from English speaking countries! Which is good -because the announcers are able to pronounce their names properly.
    There are several Jennifers, Rebeccas, Allisons, Laurens. etc.

    Some unique names:
    women
    Kelci (US diver)
    Lolo (US hurdler) -her full name is Lori
    Coralie (French swimmer)
    Zara (British equestrian -daughter of Princess Anne)
    Dominique (Canadian gymnast)
    Ellie (Canadian gymnast)
    Camille (French swimmer)
    Brainne (Canadian athletics)


    boys:
    Hayden (Australian swimmer)

    lol... I guess I need to watch more men's sports!

    Just saw a New Zealand rower named Storm Uru. Coolest name ever!
    Edit: This is a male name, since I didn't make that clear.
