    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!

    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.

    Gentry is the most unusual to my eye, mother's maiden name perhaps? Hailey and its variations have been around since I was a child in the 1970s, it started with the actress Haley Mills.

    I lol'ed at Aloha. Is that legit, or did someone really just name their kid hello?

    Shania isn't actually that weird. I know at least two girls with that name at my high school.
