Weird names in my high school yearbook.
I'm a sophomore (well - technically junior now) in high school, so these names are all on kids born from 1994 - 1998. These are just the ones that I found weird. They are all either (a) made-up names, (b) normal names with weird spellings, or (c) names that I'm just unfamiliar with. Here we go!
Merry (last name: Christensen)
Mercedes (last name: Fountaine)
Haleigh (pronounced HAL - ee)
Kaela & Jaeden (siblings)
Maverick (that's a gas station ((or at least it is here)))
I know that some of these are probably just from different cultures that I'm unfamiliar with, so you'll have to forgive my ignorance! So, your opinions? Best? Worst?

Yes, many of them are from different cultures. A lot of them are just spelled "creatively," because that was the thing to do in the late 90s I guess. But, then there are a few that are total normal English names that I was surprised to see on your list. Elmer is a real name, just terribly old-fashioned. The kid is probably not named after white school glue LOL! Lorna is a real name. Believe it or not, Mercedes is a real name. The car was named after a woman.
