I started a list not long ago. Some of these are only on here because they were used so much...
Donhue (no idea why his parents dropped the "a")
Earl (I was surprised to see this one being used as far back as the 1700s)
Holmes (I would jump on this one for the Sherlock connection if it wasn't so far back...)
Layfette (instead of Lafayette)
Liptrot (originated as a family surname; I think it's hilarious)
Ransom (Matthew 20:28 is on his headstone, which I'm assuming is where his name came from)
Seaborn (this one trended in the mid to late 1800s... no idea why)
Tyre (pronounced like "tire," but their accents turned it into "Tyra")
Belle (this and Pearl win the award for most frequently used in a double name)
Inerree (absolutely no idea where this one came from)
Lavena (never Lavinia)
Therath (related to Theresa somehow, maybe?)Emily, 18, Southeastern US.
College student and avid name nerd.

These are the less common ones, but not all of them are good!
Rhea (pronounced Ree-uh, not Ray...unfortunately.)
Missouri (as a middle name, thank goodness, but still - YUCK!)
Robinette (also a middle name, but may have been her last name before she was adopted.)
Alexandor (spelled like this, I think it's correct in Easter Europe. He was called Shandor as a nickname.)
