    I have triplet cousins who all look similar and are Chase Alexander, Chase Alexandre, and Chase Alecsander. As they've gotten older they go by Chase, Lex and Alec but when they were younger they all went by 1, 2 and 3.
    They were born two weeks before my brother who was to be Chase Alexander and is now a Cole Alexander.
    Same side of the family has a Skeeter and a Dog who was born Stephan and legally changed his name.
    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire

    Some of the strangest...

    Willie Quitman - She was one of my great-grandfather's cousins. Willie wasn't uncommon on girls around the turn of the century when she was born. I was always so intrigued by the Q though and tried to think of what Q names could have been given to a girl in rural Alabama during the 1890s. Imagine my surprise when I found out her middle name was Quitman. I have absolutely no idea why she received such a masculine name. I thought Willie Quitman might have been after a political figure at first because that side of the family was very active in politics. I haven't been able to find a Willie Quitman or a William Quitman anywhere though.

    Inerree - I haven't the foggiest idea where this one came from. As far as I can tell my great-great-grandmother is the only person to have ever worn this name. Her siblings' names weren't unusual for the time period, but this one...

    Hachaliah - Hooray for my 5th great-grandfather and his astonishingly rare Biblical name.

    Mins - This one got passed around on one branch of my family. It took me forever to learn that Mins is an old nickname for Benjamin.

    Plez Dewey - There is a story behind this one, but I think this post is getting to be long enough.

    Glovenia, Hazeltine, Marcenia, etc - Hooray for the numerous elaborate inventions of the mid 1800s.

    Manoah - another astonishingly rare Biblical name
    ♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Dean ◊ Micah ◊ Gideon ◊ Tobias ◊ Jasper
    ♀ | Helen ◊ Cora ◊ Anne ◊ Jane ◊ Edith ◊ Georgia ◊ Gwen ◊ Catherine ◊ Lydia ◊ Phoebe

His best friend divorced and recently remarried a new wife with the same name as his ex-wife and daughter! I am not kidding or making this up! I have a theory about it all that names are so telling of a person's culture, socioeconomic background, age etc. that it actually kind of makes sense that someone would choose the same name in a partner more than once in life!?
    That is exactly what I was looking for! Down right bizarre. But your theory does make sense... hopefully the second time is the charm for all of these new relationships... on the plus side, I guess those individuals won't have to worry about calling out the wrong name at an inopportune moment! lol

    Cool (to me, anyway. All direct ancestors):
    Apolline
    Augustin
    Domithilde
    Basil

    Strange (and bad - all ancestral cousins born c. 1890 - 1930. Mercifully, not direct):
    Tessiebelle (named for grandmothers Teresa (Tess) and Annabelle)
    Merceann (named for grandmothers Mercedes and Ann; possibly the ugliest name I've ever heard in my life)
    Johnita (they wanted a boy and presumably didn't know a single one of the legion female forms of John)

    And living (very distant) relative:
    Candy Kane (I've met her. She's real.)
