The Most Unusual Name You’ve Ever Heard
Forget Oranjello and Lemonjello: We’re not talking about bizarre baby name urban legends here. We don’t want to know that your sister-in-law’s cousin’s best friend works as a delivery room nurse and swears some clueless mom named her daughter Female.
What we want to hear are the most unusual real-life names you’ve ever heard. As in: I shook this person’s hand. Lived next door to her. Maybe even gave birth to him and chose his incredibly unusual name myself.
Any details you can give us about the name’s origins and meaning would be appreciated because, you know, we can never get enough.
Let the bona fide unusual name stories begin!

My best friend in middle school was a girl named “Karbon Skye”. Everyone called her Karbon. I also went to school with a “Champagne”, “Coral”, “Cherished”.
Nowadays I work with many clients. I have met a kind woman named “Sno-flake”, a little old lady named “Ardyce”, and a little girl named “Chlowie” (which is pronounced Chloe). I probably have many more but I can’t remember them all!

The sound of the name isn’t so weird, its the spelling. I couldn’t believe it when I found out… its simply horrible. Braeyden. And then when his brother was born…. Laeyden.

I’ve met a Cinnamon, which I thought was very adventurous (especially considering the bearer was middle-aged).

My neighbor’s grandchildren lived with them for a few years. The youngest daughter was named Abcde, pronounced Abb-suh-dee. For the longest time I though it was Abstinee and I was always like “those people weren’t abstaining from anything when they had and named her.” Then I learned her real name and was floored. I have no idea why they did it. She often went by Abby.
on September 17th, 2013 at 11:07 pm
I’ve met girls called Ramsey and Brikken, I thought that was pretty weird…
on September 17th, 2013 at 11:13 pm
I went to high school with a girl named Kenisa. And I currently have a classmate named Kitri (pronounced “kee-tree”).

I sadly have nothing to offer to this subject, although I look forward to hearing everybody else’s. I just want to offer a huge THANK YOU for making sure this post won’t be packed with comments about the same tired old urban legend names. When I see a post like this I want to hear about genuine, real-life names! If I have to hear about “La-a” one more time, I’m going to scream. ( Just for the record, this name is used only to illustrate my point. It is not and never has been a real name used by anyone, anywhere, at any time.)
P.S. Come to think of it, maybe the urban legend names and the misconceptions behind them would make a good blog post of their own!

I met a little girl called Candida once. All the trappings of an elegant, sophisticated name… with all the meanings of an embarrassing fungal infection.
on September 17th, 2013 at 11:34 pm
A good friend of mine has a relative named Marilla Chinchilla.
on September 17th, 2013 at 11:38 pm
I haven’t known them personally, but I’ve worked at a hospital all of my adult life so I’ve seen the records…
Quinetuckut (Not sure I spelled it right… for the uninitiated, that would be the Algonquin word from which the state of Connecticut got its name, and I’m pretty sure the one I saw had an “h” in it somewhere)

A little boy at a car boot sale called Bruce Lee Surname, a boy at school called Redeemer and a little boy called Rodent (bad translation from another language).
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:07 am
Through my job I’ve met a Lemon Fresh, Fabor Fedore, Tyson Chicon and a Dora Jarr. I went to school with a girl named Sheherazade and we called her Sherri. I think her name is what got me so interested in names as a kid!
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:20 am
I met a 4 year old named Abdullah, but his parents called him Booty. This was also the name they put on forms for school/daycare under “nickname”.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:33 am
I know several…
Sunshine, Precious, and Princess were girls I knew growing up.
Halo is a girl i watch from time to time (actually think her name is pretty cute!)
Winter and Valley are, a mom and daughter I know. Mom is Winter. She has a small business called, you guessed it.. Winter Valley.
Valkyrie (girl) and Bank’s (boy) mothers were pregnant with them at the same time I was pregnant with my daughter.
Blessing is a preteen I meet two years ago at a writers meeting. (Her mom was a member. I believe they had difficulty getting pregnant the first time, but went on to have 4 kids total which explains the name.)
Painter and Rainbow are kids my daughter met at two different churches. Rainbow is a teenage boy.
I have met two Tiaras.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:33 am
My next-door neighbor’s son is named Dryden (pronounced Dray-den).
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:34 am
Oh! And I met a Garren Tee at the park once through his wife. She introduced him, “This is my Husband Garren… Tee… Get it? Hahahaha Guarantee!” And just giggled at her poor husband. I bet she does that every time. LOL!
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:05 am
I was in college with a woman named Sparrow. I also knew a girl named Spring and a set of twins named Blythe and Bard in college. Native American names are also interesting. I was in school with a boy named Spotted Eagle (called just Eagle). A number of years ago I saw a birth announcement for a boy named Python Grip.
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:06 am
I know of someone named Tancrede. His parents named him after the French opera. Along with the name Allegra, apparently fashion designer Karl Largerfeld chose it as one of his favorite names in Vanity Fair magazine’s Proust questionnaire awhile back. It’s definitely avant garde yet has a real history and tradition behind it. Tancrede sounds better with a French, ideally Parisian, accent.

I had a friend in primary school/high school called Venus. Other than that I cannot really recall meeting anyone with truly out there names.
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:58 am
If I remember correctly, Davey-Blue. Something like that. It actually fitted her really well.
My mom and sister always tease me, “I’ll give you $10,000 if you name your baby ___________” It’s a game we’ve played for years now, long before either of us was ready to build a family. Started during a road trip when we drive past some zingers like Yovimpa and Zzyzx.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:30 am
In my class at secondary school I had two traveller girl’s (who were twin sisters) called Angel & Star which is just bizarre and too much for sisters. I suppose Angel is okay but Star as her sister…?
Also in my class there was a girl called Tony which as a nickname for Antonia is fine but as a name in it’s own right for a girl. Ugh.
At my brother’s school there are three Zambian boy called Mawawa, Shimpa, and Patrziya (these spellings are most likely wrong) which are strange to my British ears especially as when I went over to Zambia a couple of years back every other child was Jonathan or Jean.

Whilst coaching soccer on the weekend a little girl on the opposing team was Pleasure- that will cause her some issues in the future!
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:10 am
In my family tree is a woman named Dorcas Flake… I snickered over that for years as a child looking at our family archives.
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:44 am
Papillon Eagleye Rainbow. For one child..
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:37 am
Earlier this year, I met a lady called Tamarind Angelina [last name]. She’s a musician with a stage name, so it sort of fits. I really like Tamarind as a name, if I’m honest.
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:52 am
I worked in a toy store so I got to meet a lot of interesting names:
Twin girls – Dolce and Gabbana…..honestly
A girl called Velvet, I just thought that was odd
A boy called Stormy
Imogen-Shakira, as in both names for a first name
A baby boy called Jim – I know it’s not unusual but it made me laugh to have a name which you only hear on old people on a baby
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:57 am
I know a lot of names you might classify as ‘unusual’, but the cake goes to my friend Cayenne, like the spice (who gets Cheyenne more than you’d think). Her mom’s name is Cinnamon. No joke.
Then, there’s the likes of Trenayla, Jhenesis, Alekxa, Keileen, Ky’Aura, Aaaron (not a typo), Marquis, Fabrice, Akshay, Mekhi (mah-KAI), Shantiana and Andr’Neshia. That’s just a taste of the names at my school. I swear, I’m just getting a yearbook to look at the names.
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:59 am
Oh, there’s a girl in my Geometry class named Jennifer Lopez.
on September 18th, 2013 at 5:43 am
At my old job I had clients who were brothers. Mister Jackson and Money Jackson.
I also had a client named Morning Star. I LOVE it.
on September 18th, 2013 at 5:46 am
My friends baby girl is called Boudicca, Bou for short, I like it.
on September 18th, 2013 at 5:52 am
A kid who graduated a few years back was named Elijahivon, pronounced “Elijah”
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:04 am
Know of a Pryncess, Kayleesha, Heaven-Lynn, Kilea, Heaven Le´Ann, those are the ones I can think of right now
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:06 am
I grew up with a Malaysia and a Britannica (unrelated). There was also a Littlestar a few years older than me when I was in school, but I always thought that was kind of cool. I also know someone naming her soon-to-be-born son Zian. (Like Ryan? Like Ian? Like Zion? I’m sure I’ll never know.) My mom worked in hospital admissions forever, so she always came home with new names, but the one that always stood out the most was Placenta.
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:10 am
My grandmother, Leontia.
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:27 am
One of my new friends here at college is named Sincerity, although she goes by her middle name (a timeless, classic name currently in the Top 100), and said she has done for several years. She has a twin brother, also at this college, who got the more normal name, Sebastian!
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:32 am
This is kind of hard as most people I know/knew have fairly normal names. I’ve also dug out my yearbook! I had school friends called Perry (b), Vesna and Aqua. Aqua’s sister is @mber-Sky. There were others: Chemmy (prn. ‘shimmy’), Guillaume, Gorran, Emerson & Maverick. These probably aren’t odd by NB standards but I always thought they were weird.
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:42 am
Magic and Pelican haha
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:44 am
One of the players on the volleyball team we played last night was named Vegas. Also, when I used to play soccer I remember one game where apparently a player on the other team was named Paradise.
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:05 am
In high school I cheered with a girl named Coriander (she went by Cory) and there was a girl in my gym class named Sparkle Star.
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:12 am
The weirdest ones are from my Arts camp… A women who introduced herself as Nyn€ lyv€s (though it may not be her real name), T$ivi, Aqu¡nnah (which I really like), Saylor, and oddest was McGovren, she went by Govy. Apparently McGovren isn’t even a family name, her mum just liked it!
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:38 am
I taught a girl called Cinderella and once hosted a debating competition with a neighbouring school which saw my Cinderella battle it out against their (Vietnamese) Snow White. No joke. I was loving it at the time. Less unusual, but Cinderella sat next to Enoma in my class (prn ‘enema’). The juxtaposition was too much. Ooh – and in a different class at the same school there were twins – Goodness and Goodnews.
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:47 am
My mother took a lamaze class 30 plus years ago when pregnant with my younger brother. There was a couple in the class (in their 40’s) who had never been able to conceive for the many years of their marriage. They sweetly named their surprise son Welcome Traveler. Also, I recently met a Twinkle.
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:50 am
I know a little Hopalong. I’m pretty sure it’s a family name. He goes by Hoppy.
I also know a woman named Karisma. She’s a sweetheart. Her son has a very classic boys name.
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:53 am
I’ve also run into Prairie and Calico, both girls, and met a Britannia and a Phaedra. Phaedra said her father named her after a science fiction heroine. I thought it was a coincidence when I met two Aletheas, both the same age, since it’s a rare name. Both go by Ali. There is a kid name named Obadiah, with a brother called Nehemiah, here and I have also seen a real life Hadassah (presumably Christian).
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:01 am
When my grandmother passed away some years ago, the entire family was gathered at her house and my cousin and I were talking about the orphange in England that she ( Barbara) and her many brothers and sisters grew up in back in the late 1920’s. We then found out her sisters middle name was Marguerita, which was lovely, thing is her first name was Rita… pretty spunky for the day we thought, while Nana was sweet and proper Barabra Rose. I wish I could remember Hazel’s middle name 🙁
My Uncle and his first wife Glenda named their first son Tamojin, which I had not been able to find anywhere, ever, until yesterday; I am guilty of dropping this oddity on people in forums becuase I just love it! I can’t use it, so I try to push it onto others, lol ( having said that, my better half has decided on using Nathaniel, no ifs or buts, despite it being Tamo’s little brother’s name too, I can’t win!). Anyway, I finally find:
Genghis Khan: Mongolian emperor whose empire stretched from the Black Sea to the Pacific Ocean (1162-1227).
Means “of iron” in Mongolian, derived ultimately from the Turkic word temür “iron”. This was the original name of the Mongolian leader better known by the title Genghis Khan. Born in the 12th century, he managed to unite the tribes of Mongolia and then conquer huge areas of Asia and Eastern Europe.
So they just played mix and match, really…
My parnter also works with a guy called Jarron, whom he has been calling Jamon for at least a year now, god knows why…
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:03 am
sorry, typo 🙁
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:04 am
Sisters named Ima and Minnie…not so bad, right?
Their last name is Hore.
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:10 am
@klutes… another myth
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:11 am
I have to fight daily against my future child ending up on this list. My fiancé’s taste in names is out there. Here is his current list of favorites:
and….. Manbeast when I flat out refused Beastman.
And no he’s not joking. He keeps saying he wants twins: Beastman Jack and Manbeast James.
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:13 am
In an old job, I had a client named Misty who named her daughters Misti & Stormy. I also had young clients named Mahmudah, Rainbow, Theone (prn. Ta-whan), Tai-Leah (prn. ta-leah), and Lanasia.
In my family tree, I have ancestors named Clothier, Corrinthea, Zilda, Rozilla, Hanaratta, Cellestia, Maeola, Blazy, and Roos.
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:19 am
I went to school with a girl named God-Is; for the longest time I thought her name was Goddess. I’m friends with some people that named their son Amsterdam, in honor of where they met. Also, I get a lot of confusion from people for naming my own son Ness.
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:31 am
I knew a family of three little girls named Meadow, Willow and Symphony
I also know a little boy whose name is Ser Alijah pronounced like sir.
There are sisters at school named Jewel and Star
that is all i can think of right now
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:38 am
And, while I’m on a roll … I work with someone whose daughter is named Kyrie. He’s a musician on the side and the name is in reference to Kyrie Eleison, the church music meaning (Lord, have mercy). It’s pronounced Keer-ee. Relatives of mine have a granddaughter with the middle name Sisu, which is a Finnish word meaning something like “stubbornness, strength that endures.” I also know a biologist who named his daughter Hyla in reference to a genus of tree frogs. Hyla is about middle school age.
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:39 am
A little girl named Whisper.
I went to school with a Silver for a while.
And I filed insurance at my old job for an Evian.
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:53 am
I have worked with a Philomena (who goes by Phil), a girl named Kiki, and a Contia (when is a “u” away from being a horrible slur). I’ve come across a Concetta. Pretty name, evil woman. I’ve also known an Assiata (tragic), I went to school with a Shaquana….and I have a cousin named Lyric’N Harmony and a cousin named Canada (girl).
There are probably more that are escaping me at the moment.
on September 18th, 2013 at 8:55 am
A relative’s ex-girlfriend had a girl called Brittania (like the former British Royal Family yacht) and I worked with a mean woman named Lovely Bedi (which always reminded me of the TV show “Ugly Betty”).
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:04 am
I did a forum thread about this last week….
Miracle (a girl I taught while I was still a teacher. There was a Myracle in another class)
Shalaundria (“shuh-laundry-uh”…. hilarious really)
It’s funny because I grew up with interestingly-named people who named their children pretty average names (i.e. Kaylee, Emmalyn, Max, Ariana, Haydyn, etc)
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:07 am
@Danni : My mom ALMOST named me Stormy!!!! I’m so happy she got out of the hippie phase by the time I was born in the 80s lol
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:07 am
Oh, and also I remember a girl on MTV’s True Life named Swayze. Her name fit her so it seemed cool
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:15 am
I have met:
Twinkles (I thought it was there nickname at first, but it wasn’t.)
Sparkles (see Twinkles; no relation to Twinkles)
Yen.tl (I sort of like this one.)
Es.o.ter.ica (It was odd a first, but you get use to it.)
Heaven and a Heavenly…
That’s all I can think of right now. Well, some of them I cannot spell, so umm, yeah. 🙂
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:32 am
My grandmother knew a pair of boy/girl twins Dill and Sweet, last name Pickle I’m not joking I am exactly one year older than my (girl) cousin Wintter it’s a family name and I didn’t realize until I was in my teens that it was spelled with two t’s. I have an uncle who had the middle name Knight, first name Alvin. One of my cousins from my moms generation is named Lynn Gray both names are her first name name though she mostly uses Lynn. I have a cousin named Autumn whose middle name is Leif (pronounced leaf)/
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:37 am
I worked with a lovely girl called Swastika no word of a lie. I can’t remember where she was from but we called her Swazy. She said the true meaning of Swastica is Peace and that’s why her Mum gave her that name.
Years later I briefly worked for a girl called Heaven-lee, I use to have trouble calling her that.
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:38 am
I know a boy named Lenin, as in Vladamir.
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:47 am
From my time in school – Rhonda (prn. Reh-notta)
Currently at my workplace — Ongaletta, Rhenda, O’nita, Kaaren, Oreader, Rosevetta, Vashika
And these are the ones that just truly strike me… It doesn’t include all the odd spellings and simply unconventional names.
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:58 am
I went to school with girls named Biarritzica (sp?), Omega, Conztrillana, Kaileighandra, and Comfort.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:03 am
Terra Cotta, Vegas, Princess, Dabom (the bomb), Sandy Sand ….all names of people Ive known.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:04 am
I’m sure these aren’t the strangest, but there are two little girls (sisters) named Agape (Uh-Gop-Pay; used in the New Testament to refer to Christian love), and Adonai (Ah-Do-Nye); one of the many Old Testament references for God). There is a man there named Loveth. I also knew of a Keren-Happuch, named after one of the 3 sisters of Job.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:07 am
I meant 3 daughters of Job!
I learned of a boy named Honest in Plymouth, Ma, no doubt a Puritan adoption.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:08 am
I recently met a wonderfully-named couple (both young men) named Pendragon (Pen for short) and Swithun.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:08 am
When I read this post I thought oh it’s a shame I can’t contribute and then I remembered Dr Ding’s son, he was named Ding, yes Ding Ding. I’m afraid I don’t know any more about them I think they were African but I’m not 100% on that and he used to work in the local supermarket I worked in as a teenager. When Ding Ding to aisle 7 or such like was called over the tannoy you could here the laughter from the speaker as it clicked off. They had other children but unfortunately I never knew their names.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:13 am
Edulis (Latin for edible) is probably the most unusual name I’ve come across in real life.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:13 am
I know a 20-something named Galadriel, after the Lord of the Rings. Her fiance is Rhys. I hope they give their children gorgeous names too!
I went to school with a Charlie Brown.
A trio of brothers in my neighborhood (all age 5 and under) are named Blackbird, Siddhartha, and Kosmo.
Another trio of brothers I know are named Patriot, Jet, and Saint.

My mom’s friend had a baby when she was in high school and named him Kotex Cody. I went to high school with a girl named CeMarr. My husband’s coworker is a woman named Jo’Nes (pronounced joe-NESS).
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:16 am
My stepdads cousin just had a baby boy and named him Cotton. She said if it was a girl she would’ve named her Flour.
I went to school with a boy named Horizon and an Indian boy named White Eagle, who just went by Eagle.
Also recently, a little girl named Wisdom came into my work a couple months ago. I thought that was really neat.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:18 am
I used to work at portrait studio and I heard these:
La-a (yes pronounced La-dash-ah) OMG I almost fell on the floor laughing.
Peanut (not a nickname but an actual given name)
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:23 am
Nothing too unusual but my best friend’s name is Morwenna. I also know of a sibset Misty and Magenta and I went to school with an Edwin (but he went by Ed) and an Electra. I also work with a Simas 🙂
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:24 am
I know a 40something Cinnamon and a fifty something Calico. My brother works tech support with a Sunshine. As in: Thank you for calling …… My name is Sunshine …… How can I help you today?
I’ve met little girls named Promise, Symphony Elise, and Hayley Daylight. I also met a little girl named Zithriana whose father boasted that they’d made it up.
I went to school with two girls named Athena who were the same age. I also know a forty something Aletha. I’m sure there is more but that’s off the top of my head.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:25 am
I know of a middle-schooler named Yxzachel.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:34 am
Oh–and my mum once delivered a baby who was named Uniroyal, after the tires, because the parents hadn’t known what to name their son and passed a tire sign on the way to the hospital.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:35 am
I had a teacher in grade school whose first name was Keeley, pronounced KEY-lee. My mom worked with a woman whose real first name was Peaches. And my boyfriend’s sister is named Sha-Lisa.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:36 am
A girl in my son’s class was named Unique. Fine, except…her mother was also named Unique. Kind of defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? 🙂
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:37 am
oh, I almost forgot my cousin’s daughter’s mn is Storm; not odd but unusual and rare around here.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:43 am
I had a friend named Matisse she would be about 23 now. Then there is a little boy at the school I work named River, which isn’t that bad but his last name sounds like Rowing so his name is River Rowing. Then another little boy named Jet Black and his sister Midnight. Oh and a guy named Briar I’m sure I have more but that’s all I can think of right now
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:47 am
I once met a Rochelle Rochelle….I didn’t believe her until she pulled out her license. Our next door neighbor was an old man named Charlie Brown. There was also a “Vitamin” that would come into the liquor store I worked at. No middle or last name just Vitamin….not sure if she changed her name or what but it had it on her driver’s license.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:49 am
I worked with a man whose middle name was Thor and he said it was his father’s middle name too.
Other than that the weirdest first name I’ve heard (so far) is our downstairs neighbors’ son. His name is Broden and they call him Bro-Bro.
on September 18th, 2013 at 10:58 am
Rhythm and Soul (two brothers, not twins). Steven-Gerrard (That was his first name hyphenated and everything). I also went to school with a girl named Cheryl who had a sister named Lady Pearl and I always wondered why she wasn’t called Lady Cheryl to match.
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:00 am
I’ve known girls named Sieglind and Sarah-Violet….Anda woman named Freja, which I know isn’t totally unusual, but when I was a kid and first heard it, I thought it was.
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:05 am
I went to high school with a girl named, Jrily, (prn. “Jury”). If I’m not mistaken it is an acronym for: Just Remember I Love You. She was a very sweet girl and the name suited her well.
I also babysat for a boy named Coker… It was a family name. Yeah….
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:16 am
Not too odd, but yesterday I was volunteering at the convalescence center and met a Florrie and a Fern. I’ve also known siblings named Oisin (Pronounced Oh sheen) and Aoife (Pronounced Eefa). I went to elementary school with a lot of ethnic people, so some others are Yousif, Hei-Laam, Iryna, Xaan Xaan, and Megha.
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:21 am
I went to school with a girl named Isaiah, pronounced like eye-zigh-ah. My Mum once babysat sisters named Freedom and Liberty, which aren’t all that strange but taken together seem a little much.

Oh! Also, my grandpa’s name is Thorbjorn (pronounced Torbien), but he goes by Thor. My dad’s name is Torrey, but he never met another man named Torrey. He changed his name to Torr this year after hating his name for his whole life. Whenever he introduces himself now, people always comment on how cool his name is! I also have a great-aunt named Kitty (short for Katherine) and I have a great uncle named Eilif (Pronounced Eye-Lif).

As a teacher I had a number of students with uncommon names that were actually in keeping with the culture. But the one that stuck in my mind was Shampaigne. What was most awkward about it was that it didn’t fit her personality at all.
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:27 am
I went to school with girls named Champagne, Pashion (passion) and Heaven Ly Angel (first and middle names, Ly is pronounced like Lee). Heaven usually went by Heavenly, and she has a sister named Miracle. My good friend has a cousin named Sunshine, which actually seems to fits her perfectly because, no matter when I see her, she’s always happy.
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:31 am
My husband has twins in his class one year named Champagne and Chardonnay.
I knew sisters growing up named Sunshine and Summer.
An acquaintance of mine wanted to name his son Brock Lee (broccoli).
I’ve met a lady named Robin Hood. (although Hood was her married name. How does that even happen??)
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:33 am
Oh, and there was a Kelly Kelly that I went to high school with!
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:43 am
I’ve worked with kids with odd names and spelling but the one that sticks out most is Passion
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:47 am
My mom had a student named La-a, but please take note lest you be reproved – the dash is not silent. Yes, her name is pronounced “Ladasha.”
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:54 am
I used to work at an after-school program. Nothing *too* unusual, but I did encounter the following names:
-Tayshanishia (tay-sha-NEE-sha). She went by Tay-Tay. She was a sweetie.
-Delight and Forrest (siblings)
-Emmarae and Tevin (siblings)
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:59 am
My friend is a high school teacher, and has a female student named Lasagna. Same spelling and pronunciation as the food.
One of my friends in college was named Xyan (SIGH-uhn but with a Z). His older sister is named Allyn.
Someone I went to school with named her son Uriah. Not so bad, if the first thing you think of is the Bible, but I was in nursing school when she had him, and my first thought was of the suffix -uria, as in, having to do with urine. Now I can’t unthink it.
Also: a middle-aged man named Granville, a little girl named Talon, and an elderly woman named Wallis, I assume after Wallis Simpson.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:03 pm
When i was younger i played soccer with a girl named Imagination. Her sister was named Amanda! Also, my idiot brother was going to name his child “Felony” if he had a girl. Thank goodness he had a boy! (named Steven). Everyone in the family was freaking out over that one.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:07 pm
I once met a guy named Quetzalcoatl. He was actually surprised I knew his name was from Mayan mythology.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:11 pm
I forgot to mention I knew a Sunny. Not too unusual, except her middle name was Deli1ght, which was a family name and also her mother’s middle name. Her mother was Doris Delight and she was Sunny Delight. Ugh.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:22 pm
A friend of mine went to high school with a girl named Mary Christmas, which is maybe less unusual than just kind of silly. My MIL’s former boss’ name is Velvet which is kind of ill-fitting as she is far from soft and cuddly.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:38 pm
Is it weird that I’m the only person who thinks half these names are completely fine?
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:44 pm
I have been laughing so hard at some of these choices. It genuinely makes me wonder what some of these parents were thinking. As for me, I have a lot of friends and people in my friendship circles that have very unusual names. For instance.
Arion (for both boy and girl), Alef, Isly, Sander, Maitê, Raul, Orlando, Tainara, Andrey/Andreas, Laurene (g), Satia, Samir, Stephano (b), Drielle, Najla, Aquila Mari (g), Guido, Franco, Cassio, Zhao, Eugenia, Pillar, Rhander, Heleuzes (b), Jimena, Jade, Malena, Anuah (g), Ethore, Cervantes, Soraia, Geanini (g), Thieres (b), Carmine (b) and Karion (b). Also, my grandma is called Dilce, and her daughters are Luscila (my mum) and Luzmena. My grandad on my dad’s side is named Amador.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:49 pm
These are crazy!
I know a Tipera and a Tequira. They’re not sisters. They don’t even know each other. I have never heard their names before on anyone else.
By the way, Jennifer Lopez is a VERY common name.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:52 pm
I just schd an appt for a woman by the name of Ardthare, which is a little strange, i think. Thru my work I’ve also spoken with, heard of, or worked with a Brookeanne Rosebrook, Satin Satin (yes, this was her first and last name), and Mariama. Ampadoo is a little girl at church I used to teach. She is African. I know there have been more, but these are the ones I can think of at the moment.
My husband used to work for a middle-eastern man named Ashit. He knew the proper pronunciation couldn’t possibly be THAT, so he didn’t use his first name for like a month, not until he heard someone else say it correctly: Ah-sheet. Yeah, that one really doesn’t translate very well into English….
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:53 pm
I went to school with a boy named Hitler and one named Nimrod. My friend just had a baby girl that she named Ransom.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:57 pm
@ axps123: yes! my husband loves the name Uriah, but I can only think of urine. You know any boy getting that name would be teased!
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:57 pm
A baby girl named Abcde was definitely the weirdest. By far.
I can’t even think of any more that even compare.
A kid in my sister’s grade has the middle name Librato. I’ve never heard it before and I assume it’s a family name.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:58 pm
Forgot to mention that Tipera has brothers that all have T names, but I have seen their names before. Even Taliesin. I have no idea where her parents got the name Tipera.
on September 18th, 2013 at 12:59 pm
I know a guy named Stormin (his surname is Norman. I’m guessing his parents thought it was funny. Poor guy)
I also know an Icelyn, who goes by Icy. I can’t imagine what about that appealed to her parents. Were they just really taken by ice?
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:07 pm
I also went to school with a girl named Xiclali (I just had to use Facebook to make sure I got the correct spelling! haha)…I’m still not sure how to pronounce it correctly. Everyone just called her Lolly.
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:08 pm
I have worked with babies and in pediatrics for 24 years, and nothing seems to surprise me anymore.
Some doozies from the most recent past are:
Beautiful Heavenly Love (last name: Jones)
Antartica (Misspelled form of Antarctica), last name: Sylvertooth
Twins: Egypt and Jerusalem
Harley, last name: Bacon – little girl
Twins: Jermaree and Jotham
Dureyea (Dare-ee-ay) – Little boy (reminds me of derriere, or backside)
Saint Michael (full first name)
King Daiveion (full first name)
Twins: Cameran (girl) and CamRon (boy)
I am sure I will have more…. I shake my head every day for these poor babies 😉
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:11 pm
My sister went to school with a boy called Manic which I thought was absolutely hilarious.
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:16 pm
I know a Lali (like lollipop), her sister Kestrel, have run into Stormy a few times in my life, a Madras (goes by Maddie..I like the longer form.)Cadence- I’ve heard a lot of unusual names over the years. Of course, my own name- Karhma Harmony (I’m 38, the first name is Karma w/ a silent h..I hate the h.)
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:33 pm
I have a coworker named Clark Kent.
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:36 pm
I went to school with a girl whose younger sisters were named Karma and Kismet.
In our local cemetery I have found a fabulous cache of names, ranging from Azuba to Heman (Heman had a sister named Jerusha, who is buried next to him).
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:45 pm
My friends are twins and their names are Precious and Perfect.
on September 18th, 2013 at 1:46 pm
I also know of a Stawberri (with an I, not a y)
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:01 pm
I have met a Paprika and a Chigmarlo ( “after Chigago and Marlo”). Funnily enough, the Paprika I know has a nature last name so think Paprika Water. Roll call with her is always a little funny.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:06 pm
Banana Peach. I was doing volunteer work, and this man kept calling his little girl, “Banana.” I thought maybe it was her nickname. I get called “Hannah Banana” all the time. Thing is, he kept saying it over and over until he finally yelled, “BANANA PEACH, GET OVER HERE!”
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:08 pm
I’ve also known a Sunny and Stormy, which isn’t bad itself. The thing is, these were six-year-old twins who always dressed unisex with unisex hairstyles and matching outfits. All I knew was one was a boy and one was a girl. I was never able to figure out who was who. I was a little kid, after all.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:10 pm
I have met young sisters called Walden and Banks. These names are nice but I think they suit boys better.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:11 pm
I would also like to add a customer my husband once assisted, Major Manly.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:15 pm
I knew a sibset growing up named Passion, Precious and Prince. I know another sibset named Paris and London…
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:18 pm
Oh …and I know children named Redd Flowers (boy), Captain (boy), Goldie and a Gypsy.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:19 pm
At my cousin’s wedding a few weeks ago there was a little girl named Cherish. Not that unusual, I guess, but it’s all I can think of right now.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:22 pm
There’s a guy named Twain in my class as school.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:31 pm
I love the names Sonny Rae and Never Remembrance for girls, both are unique and beautiful. I had a friend who’s sister was named Sonny Rae, and i loved it. The name Never (Nev) and the name Remembrance were characters in book I have read, but the two names together sound so strong. Not to mention it rolls off the tongue nicely.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:33 pm
I love Kitri!!! Its jus so cute! I have sisters called Sorrell Akona Jade & Kyrie Pronounced Keer-ree. My friends boyfriend is called Dragan & goes by Zac. Friends of the family called their youngest son Rassiah. I absolutely love it, I hsve never heard it before. Some one I talk to on a forum has a baby called Luna Cove. I went to school with Twin girls named Farideh & Sohailah
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:41 pm
I know kids called:
Don’t put my name all over a chat forum. Nn Donnie.
How about respecting my privacy, thanks. Goes by nn Howie.
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:47 pm
There are brothers at my school called Kingsley and Memphis, and they have a little sister called Honey:)
on September 18th, 2013 at 2:52 pm
A girl in the grade below me in high school was named Precious and her mom is named Promise. I also went to a summer program with a boy called Sakari (based on Zachary, but pronounced more like Safari).
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:03 pm
Some of the names on here are not that bad (I know a Liberty, and I never thought it was strange). The most unusual names of people I have met in person:
Given – girl from church
Tara Bell – girl from church
Cinderella (goes by Cindy) – lady I used to work with
Secret – had to explain her name all the time!
Cutter – a guy I used to work with
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:13 pm
Legend (a man my husband use to teach martial arts to) he has a brother named Justus, but I can never remember their sisters name.
Montanaela (close friend) Her children are Dutch, Irish, German and Tuscan (all boys)
Machandra (Montanaela’s sister)
RaNon (Montanaela’s sister in law)
Cricket (girl I went to high school with)
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:14 pm
These comments have been cracking me up!!!
Weirdest name I knew (at the time) I was 9 and her mom worked with my dad. She was 5 I think. They called her Peaches. Which suited her perfectly… but her actual name was August. I like August a lot, now. And for a boy. At the time I was just puzzled. 🙂
The only other odd names I know are a sibset: Saywer and Sander. Ok names, until you get their last name. Starts with a “St” ends in an “er”. It sounds so repetitious. But their parents both have “S” names too. But not as matchy to the last names as the babies. Ugh.
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:15 pm
My cousin’s newborn daughter is Armani, and aside from whatever anyone’s opinion might be on the obvious association, I think it’s a beautiful name 🙂
I also know of a little boy called Life
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:16 pm
I went to a school with a girl named Starr Litt.
When I was in college, I worked in a childcare facility and we had a Ceightlynne. (I always thought that’d be a challenge to bubble in on Scantron tests!) We also had twin brothers named Winston and Salem.
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:17 pm
An ex boyfriend’s younger brother is Severin. His mom got it from a name book. I adore it. Pronounced SEV-rin
My best friend’s daughter is Vayla. I find it adorable as well.
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:25 pm
I met a little girl at a party named Never…not sure if that’s how they spelled it, but that’s how it sounded (I really fought the urge to ask 3 more times what her name was and how to spell it, but that seemed rude). She went by the nickname Nevi, which is kinda cute.
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:30 pm
Oh and my husband had two friends in college who were best friends and who were named Bronson and Bingham. I guess nowdays that’s not so weird, but at the time (late 90’s/early 00’s) it seemed notable (they were VERY southern and looked the part- both handsome, tanned & tall with shaggy blonde hair). I won’t say them here since I didn’t meet these people, but my mother in law has seen plenty of unfortunately-named kids come through her class when she taught at a public school.
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:43 pm
I was watching the news and a mother was with her two teenage daughters talking about how they survived a tornado, and oddly enough their names were Stormy (19) and Skye (sp?) (16).
I don’t know a lot of weird names.
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:45 pm
I’ve met a Sparkle, a Princess, and the sibsets of
1. Carlos and Karlos
2. Giana and Jeanna
Both pronounced the same.
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:48 pm
Guys named Brick, Sterling, Stetson
A gal named Moon with a son named Ransom
Gals named Tave, Starla
on September 18th, 2013 at 3:59 pm
In school I knew a boy named Joe. Not too unusual until you realize his older brother’s name is Superman. Neither have middle names.
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:02 pm
Two of my grandpa’s sisters were named Gladys (not unusual in that era) and Glada (glade-uh). Although I’ve never heard of Glada elsewhere, I’ve heard much stranger names. The peculiarity, of course, is naming two subsequent daughters such similar names. There was also another brother Glenn. I guess they had a thing for Gl- names.
Also, please, please, PLEASE no more La-a (yes, we all know the dash isn’t silent), or Placenta, or any other urban legend names I’ve seen mentioned here, whether you think it’s real or not. Having worked in the medical field for many years, I’ve heard them all…many times over. It causes you to lose your credibility since most of us know they’re not real. Suggestion: if you do an Internet search for “girl named Placenta Previa” or “girl named La-a” or whatever name you heard and there are TONS of results, it’s probably not true.
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:08 pm
I used to have a math teacher called Mark…his surname was ing!!
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:11 pm
My brother went to school with a Jaful (pronounced “Ja-fool”), a lady I worked with named her son Zephyr, a teacher at my high school named his kid Sparky, an exchange student was named Dung (pronounced “young”), and a man I worked for had a granddaughter named Mary-Miller. Miller was not the last name and you did not(!!!!) call her Mary.
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:14 pm
I know a grown woman named pe@chez with an alliterative noun last name. Also a grown man with a last name that can be a first name, and first name b@rkely (actually like that name! Suits him). Also some others but in order to explain them I would have to give away more of their full names than I’d like to share.
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:23 pm
Here are some I have met as patients- Pleas, Scholastica, J’ream (prn Dream). Here is a birth announcement I once read – Quienceallahzayah Dmitri Xavier
on September 18th, 2013 at 4:50 pm
In school, I know a Luxola and a Pyere (pronounced Pierre). I have a cousin named Shanan. My friend’s sister named her daughter Sky-Lynn and they have cousins named Faith Samaira, Zakayla Hope, and Icess Love.
on September 18th, 2013 at 5:01 pm
One holiday season a few years ago at my retail job, we hired a woman named Orangersalada. She went by O.C., and absolutely hated her legal first name.
on September 18th, 2013 at 5:25 pm
I work with a woman named Fancy and her sister is named Honey. The names don’t suit them at all! They are very loud and obnoxious.
I think the strangest name I ever heard is Rehtaeh. It’s Heather backwards.
on September 18th, 2013 at 5:54 pm
I went to high school with the Frost family – Novyl, Sonnet, Story, and Rule.
I went to medical school with Ei-ey (pronounced ee-ee – she named herself) and Xochtil (pronounced Zo-she, and now there are tortilla chips of that brand, but it boggled my mind at the time).
I named my own daughter Zella, which seemed much more unusual when she was simply named after her great-grandmother and didn’t sound like a changed-around version of Stella and Bella and Ella.
Other names in my husband’s family include Trelawney (his grandmother, mother, sister, and niece and the original Zella all have that as a first or middle name) and Lentihon (pronounced lawn-tee-on. It’s French 🙂
on September 18th, 2013 at 5:59 pm
I knew a girl named Chaos and a girl named Saneh which was pronounced like Sonny.
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:02 pm
I work in a school. Try Princess. Pixie. Nevaeh (heaven backwards). I could go on. The number of kids with apostrophes in there names are ridiculous.
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:07 pm
I heard a pastor speak the other night named Bruxy. My friend has two girls Ayelen Teo & Chaya Kyrie. I have a patient whose husband’s name is Twin. I have another patient named Tyla which I had never heard before but think its an awesome name. My husband’s Grandma is named Florelle. His Grandpa on the other side is named Ephraim. I used to babysit a girl named Talia (Ta-lee-ah). My cousin has four kids with names on a bird theme: Talon; Raven; Drake; & Phoenix. I know a 10 year old boy named Sundance. My friend named her boy Orion last year. Another girl I know just had a baby & named him Odin. I know 4 girls from 3 families that all have boys names: Noa (pn Noah); Carter; Wylie & Elliot.
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:14 pm
I went to junior high with a kid named D’Bree (pronounced like debris) and knew a woman in Florida named Tangerine (like the fruit).
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:19 pm
We have a lot of strange names in my family history. My great grandma is Ozella. Great great grandma is Minnie Doll. Other great great grandma is Birdie. Great great aunt is Etheline. Great great grandpas Printiss and Reason ( I kind of like this name…) Also I had a kid in daycare named Jaguar once. And one named Dartanyan. Like D’Artagnan from the 3 musketeers spelled differently. I’ve known a Cember, December, January, Chapel, Maeoli. A lot of strange ones!
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:22 pm
I’ve met a girls named Nadinet (nah dee NET), Joanly, Lyndzye. A boy named Josian (I like this name!).
I went to middle school with a Kristna, Quianna, an Onix (G), an Uriel (B).
High school with girls named Amor (spanish for love), Shalom, Vijaya (vee jay ah) but went by Mary because of embarrassing mispronunciations. Mihaela but went by Michelle because many people had trouble pronouncing her name (I really liked Mihaela though!). Worked with a Dagmara, Princess, Tertia
I have two friends who named their boys Zoran and Jadiel, names I hadn’t heard before.
The weirdest name I can remember is of a boy I went to school in Mexico with whose name was Hosni (os nee) H is silent in Spanish. I always thought it was a made up name until I saw it while browsing names somewhere.
Also, my boyfriend’s nephew is Archimedes, which I thought was a lot of name for a little boy but he wears it well!
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:24 pm
I forgot to add that growing up, my best friend’s mom’s first name was Otilda, but she went by her middle name which was something more mainstream. There was also a girl I went to junior high who I didn’t get along with named Tiyefa.
on September 18th, 2013 at 6:55 pm
A woman named Watermelon (who was a burlesque dancer – what did I expect), my mom is named Lezah (Hazel spelled backwards) and I have a friend named Tattina (combo of Tatiana and Tina). Also a Theron
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

I have a Tiara in some of my classes.
My middle name, and my mom’s, is Lenee. Pronounced Lenay.
My grandmother’s name is Mary Joy.
My grandfather’s name is Ferd.
And then there’s my worst enemy Kevin. Look up the meaning and you’ll see how ironic that is.
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:35 pm
And don’t forget poor little North West!
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:38 pm
I went to elementary school with a little girl named Hannibal Johnson. Everyone called her Hanni, she has a sister named Ophelia and a brother named Shakespeare who everyone calls Pierce. I can’t believe someone would name their kid after a so called murderer.
on September 18th, 2013 at 7:43 pm
I knew girls in school named:
Eidleigh (pron Air-leigh)
sisters Summer Rain & Skye Blu
and I’ve worked with people named:
A Ceridwen and a Keridwen (both at the same time in the same dept)
Poonam (Female, Indian name not a joke name)
Scherazade (goes by Zadie)
and a boss named Wayne Carr (his dad was a Baptist minister so they didn’t realise it might be a problematic name)
I saw Brahminy in a BA for a girl last year, which has stuck with my because it’s so different.
And my sister in law is named Gissu. It’s Persian, and her whole family have great names that are (mostly) quite unusual in Australia, but I can’t spell them all 🙂

oops i keep thinking now!! lol Prince Robert he’s 3 and crazy hyper lol
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:08 pm
My parents named me, Debonaire Cipriana. Debonaire actually comes from the French word ‘debonair’ which was picked out by my uncle for any daughter of his, but he passed away before I was born and never had another child so I was named for him. Cipriana is the feminine form of Cipriano which was the name of my Great-Grandfather on my mother’s side. It’s funny because I have three brothers and they have very normal names, Donald Jr, Dakota, and Dalton…

Believe it or not the ‘jello’ names are not an urban legend. I work in child support and have seen the names Orangejello, Lemonjello, and Limejello. I have also seen names like K-a (pro. kay-dash-ah), Z’kittas, Ny’dranada and many others. As well as a triplet set named Nykle, Penni, and Dyme.
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:17 pm
In my once-upon-a-time job at a bookstore, I special ordered a book for an older gentleman named Fowler McCreary. It was such a striking combination that I wrote it down, hoping to use it one day for a character in a novel!
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:18 pm
Also I have a cousin named Saylor.
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:19 pm
I know siblings named Sky, Storm and Anthony. Thats all i have to contribute
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:20 pm
My good family friend is some sort of delivery room nurse. She says she’s never commented (negatively) on what someone named their baby, with one exception. Upon retrieving the birth certificate and seeing that the child had been named Satan, she approached the mother and father. She found out that they had been trying to name their daughter Satin, like the fabric. When she pointed out the connection with the misspelling, they were very willing to change it luckily! Thanks to our friend, that baby gets to go through life with the name Satin instead of Satan. In my opinion Satin is a pretty horrible name choice, but few things could be as bad as having to introduce yourself as Satan!
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:32 pm
I’ve met quite a few, but some that stick out in my mind:
When I was flipping through my yearbook a couple of years ago, I saw a girl named Eternity a few years above me.
It could’ve been a nickname, but once I was volunteering at a booth during the state fair when a women and I think it was her grandson came. He was a baby, and I asked his name. She said Courage.
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:36 pm
I know adult sisters named Pretty and Princess. They are from another country, with English as a second language.
I have a friend who gave his daughter the middle name Awesome. The baby’s first name is very normal, a top ten name.
I grew up with kids named Jerusalem and Remember (not related, both girls.)
on September 18th, 2013 at 9:42 pm
I’ve only ever met people with comparatively boring names. I suppose the most unusual I’ve ever encountered is Britisha. I’m not sure how legitimate this name is, or if it’s more common in certain cultures/areas, but there was a girl in my creative writing class with this name. It’s just British with an ‘a’ at the end.
on September 19th, 2013 at 6:06 am
I know a woman named Alafair, and I’ve seen that name on a tombstone in Charleston, SC before. It sounds Scottish, but I think it is most heard of in the Southern U.S.
There is a cashier at my local supermarket named Afton (a girl). We considered this for our daughter because of that lovely Nickle Creek song, “Sweet Afton.”
I know a Shosha (not Shoshanah, just Shosha), though she pronounces it Shah-shuh, not SHOW-sha)
I know a woman named Graham, a family name.
I know a guy named Zebulon, which I think is awesome. It was after the national park.
I know a teenager named Shaviance, which I think her parents just made up.
I have an ancestor named Greenberry, which came from a surname Greenbury.
on September 19th, 2013 at 6:29 am
My youngest sister went goes to scouts with a girl whose first name is Precious and middle name is Loveless. No, I am not joking.
on September 19th, 2013 at 8:49 am
I also grew up with a girl named Kelly Kelly! And by the way, no one is saying that these names are bad, just that they are unusual. I happen to adore Galadriel, but the one I know is certainly the only one I am ever likely to meet! 🙂 Same with the other names I posted — I am not criticizing. The post didn’t ask for horrible names, just unusual ones. I have an unusual name myself (not unusual enough to make this list) and I have always loved being the only person I know with my name!
on September 19th, 2013 at 9:05 am
I think one of the weirdest I’ve come across was a little boy I met recently called Torres. For those of you who don’t know, Fernando Torres plays football for Liverpool. Let’s hope he doesn’t change clubs.
on September 19th, 2013 at 9:46 am
One of my European clients named there daughter Doo-doo. 100% true.
on September 19th, 2013 at 11:24 am
My grandmother grew up in an isolated area of the country during the 1920s and 30s, and used to know a guy named Juan, pronounced Joo-Ann. Apparently his parents saw it in a silent movie and liked it, but had no idea how to pronounce it, having never met a Juan in real life.
I actually know a baby Hadassah, a name several other posters mentioned as well. She’s four months old and her parents call her Haddie, which I think is a very sweet nickname. I also have a nephew whose middle name is Tirian, which his parents took from the Chronicles of Narnia. His first name is a top 10 name, so Tirian was a good way to make his name a little more distinct.
on September 19th, 2013 at 3:52 pm
I know a seven year old name Ramsey Jade, and I think it’s adorable.
I worked at a preschool for a while so I’ve seen some weird ones.
La-ia (Luh-dash-ee-uh) and brother Zequiah (zeck-why-uh)
This family had like seven kids. I only ever met Yu’Shel’Praie (you-shall-pray) “Shelli” and her sisters (twins) Heaven and Nevaeh (nuh-vy-uh)
I babysit for Nia, Tenley, McGuire, and Sawyer. They aren’t super weird but I liked them.
Alaska, Venice, and Vinland were my first babysitting job. Vinland (or Vinny) was a boy and the other two were girls.
Jael (jay-Elle) and Canaan (Kay-nen) belonged to a lovely Christian family who gave their kids lovely biblical names.
I’ll list some more-
Elleaiea (pronounced Elle-lye-uh)
Flynn on a girl
Henri on a girl
Renesmee (I’ve actually met one, and she was 19, too old to be named after twilight)
on September 19th, 2013 at 7:52 pm
One of my best friends growing up is named Calamity.
on September 19th, 2013 at 8:14 pm
I went to elementary school with a boy named Ebenezer and another boy named Rainbow (though they were both a lot younger than me).
I’ve met a girl named Candida *shudder*.
I have also met one and heard of another: Athena!
I knew a girl name Stormy.
My mom used to babysit a boy named Sky Blue.
I worked with an elderly woman named Adria, I thought that was quite pretty.
I also knew siblings Jehu, Jasreal(sp?) and Cassia.
That’s all I can think of!
Oh! And a friend of mine’s little brother is called A.J. Which stands for Apollo John.. How awesome is that?!
on September 19th, 2013 at 8:23 pm
I forgot one. Twins Sabrina and Elias.. not that unusual right? except they pronounced Elias as EE-lee-uss.
Also my neighbor has a little boy with Seamus as a middle. prn See-muss.
on September 19th, 2013 at 9:51 pm
I have a name in my family tree that has inspired laughter and hilarity for years. A relative named Bun Macaroon, no joke!
Some other odd ones I’ve encountered in my teaching experience-
Siracha – yes like the sauce as I was told by his parents
Happy – a girl
Martha Washington S.- Washington was her middle name
Ronald Reginald Desmond Darius – The called him R2D2 for short
Pop nn for Phillip
on September 19th, 2013 at 9:52 pm
Names I saw at a hospital where I worked:
Camera (pronounced ka-MARE-uh)
Taewon (not sure, but I’m guessing it’s pronounced like Taiwan)
and my favorite…Tortilla
on September 20th, 2013 at 8:34 am
I had a great-aunt with the middle name Betresue, pronounced like Patricia.
on September 20th, 2013 at 9:47 am
I went to school with a Precious Moment, a Brock Lee, and in high school my computer lab partner was Bud Lite! I was also “very good friends” with the Disney Princesses at the Magic Kingdom for 13 years and was introduced to children with the lovely names of Reignbeau, a Storyteller (which I think is cute and suited her as she told me her life story in a matter of moments), twins Kreed and Kutter, a family of 3 children Goddess, Divine, and Courvoisier (yes like the alcohol), twins Chaos and Dessi (short for Destruction), and a Semaj (SA-Maj-A which she informed me was James backwards)! Now I love funky names and don’t know that I would ever be brave enough to name my children something this out of the ordinary (although I love funky and props to the parents for not caring about what society thinks and naming their children whatever they felt was right) but I went off the beaten path and named my children Jennacy, Eythan, Halo Rain, and in just a few weeks we will welcome a boy and his name will be Reichen (Ry-Kin) or Koven. 🙂
on September 20th, 2013 at 10:56 am
A girl named Tapestry.
on September 20th, 2013 at 12:25 pm
At work last week (not kidding, literally last week), I met a Godspower… I was definitely taken aback by that.
A few years ago, a friend of a friend wanted to name her unborn daughter Sobriety… She had a beautiful reason, the baby was the reason she got herself together, but I couldn’t help but shake my head at that… I don’t remember what she finally settled on but I do remember being glad it wasn’t Sobriety…
on September 20th, 2013 at 3:10 pm
A girls I went to school with had an older sister named Yarrah. Their mother’s Father, Harry, has died and wanted to name her next child after him, but had a girl, so she spelt it backwards.
on September 20th, 2013 at 3:16 pm
A girl who goes to my school is called Lonjarae (pronounced like lingerie) and she often got teased for that
on September 20th, 2013 at 4:36 pm
I had a coach named Gizmo, and I know siblings named Rainbow and Mountain, a little baby named Subria, a Kanasy and an Alyandra, an Oakley Drexel, and twins named Keisha and Kaneisha.

My great-grandmother’s sister was Verta Valita!
on September 21st, 2013 at 5:37 am
I know girls named Hebe and Niluka. I like those names actually. Also heard of a Welsh female name Myfanwy (mi-FAN-wee) which I think is beautiful.
on September 21st, 2013 at 8:15 am
I know a young girl whose first name is Corona… Last name Beers. Yikes. Unfortunate since Corona is actually a very pretty name…
on September 21st, 2013 at 11:00 am
I knew sisters at school named Tanyella and Tamsene (tam-ZEEN).
There was also a brother and sister called Zen and Rainbow.

I never realised I knew so many people with unusual names.
on September 21st, 2013 at 11:06 am
I forgot one – I once met a girl called Storm.
on September 21st, 2013 at 11:23 am
My boss’s niece and nephew are called Storm and Red which I didn’t expect at all.
on September 21st, 2013 at 12:29 pm
My cousin married a guy named Israel Butt. So when they had their first son, they named him Keegan Dee (after her grandfather) Butt. They are ranchers and cowboys, so it actually works for them out in the boonies, where they live. 🙂
on September 21st, 2013 at 1:03 pm
When I worked at the birth inscription in my town I had a couple from Romania or something like that and they want to name them little boy AL PACINO then a few days later they change off mind and choose AL CAPONE!!!!! beside that my stepmother met a young student at her job in the hollidays and his name was JACQUES-DU-TRONC …
on September 21st, 2013 at 9:25 pm
Another interesting name I heard at one of my former schools: Ya-Ya. I kid you not!
on September 22nd, 2013 at 7:19 am
My husband and I named out son Castor- so I am very aware of unusual names. I used to work in a salon so I’ve heard a few good ones in my day- Peaches was an older woman who claims all her mother could eat was peaches when she was pregnant. MacGregor- family surname, Freya- a 4-year old British girl who ALWAYS wore wings. Foxx and Trot- brothers named after baseball players. Lulu- young girl’s given name.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 9:32 am
My sister and I were looking at names of children on the wall at the library, and one unfortunate child was named Jizzayah.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 10:26 am
I went to school with a girl named Silverline, which I always thought was quite strange, and also a Sweety.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 10:59 am
My friends’ baby’s name is Momo. I bet that one is not in your book, yet!
on September 22nd, 2013 at 11:02 am
At a previous job there was a man that often came through the doors named Dicky Duke. There was also a Garland Beaver and a man named Riley with three children named Kiley, Kotton, and Kandy.
I worked in an ER a few years ago and I only wish I could remember all the outlandish names that came through those doors. The one that I do remember is Cordially. He was a great big guy that looked like he could have been a football player.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 11:18 am
Wow there are so many comments I doubt anyone will read this but here it goes. Shawnarey (shawn-a-ray) – my mother.
Sunny, middle name Rey – my sister
Thisbe – my youngest daughter, sister is Zoey
Billie Sue – my grandmother
Met a girl whose name sounded like colony, I thought it was neat
Ancestor named Euphemia
There are some I am forgetting, may add them later

Was friends in school with a Shineha, not to odd but have never met another.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 12:15 pm
I once knew a girl named Tevana, which I think was made up by her aunt.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 12:21 pm
Chike and D’Andre are some other unusual ones I’ve met.
And a girl named Idris with the nickname Giddy.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 1:55 pm
I know a woman named Siouxsee (pronounced Susie)
on September 22nd, 2013 at 2:20 pm
While doing genealogical research, I discovered an ancestor named Laughveign. I’ve no idea about the origin, but I find the name intriguing.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 4:37 pm
I have an Aunt who was always called Princess growing up, even though her name was Jodie. But for some reason she changed her name legally to Princess. So yes, I call her Auntie Princess. Its terrible.
Also, there is a girl that goes to my school named Abreeze. Like “There was a breeze on the mountaintop.”
on September 22nd, 2013 at 5:25 pm
I have a friend on Facebook who just named her daughter Abbraxlynn. I read it about 35 times and still have no idea what they’re trying to say.
on September 22nd, 2013 at 5:38 pm
Since I work in admissions for a university I come across a lot of unusual names and spellings. Here are a few of my favorites:
Michikia (sometimes went by Chickie)
Colon (pronounced like Collin, but an unfortunate spelling)
Malaria (like the disease)
Twins named Harbor and Haven
And I know a set of siblings named Pearl, Ruby, and Jasper, which I think is quite nice, if a bit matchy. Pearl and Jasper were born first and were unintentionally both given gemstone names, but after that was pointed out they decided to keep the pattern going with little Ruby!
on September 23rd, 2013 at 1:28 am
Oh, I guess I was right about La-a and Lemonjello. But I forgot to mention La-ia, Ka-a, and Limejello.
THOSE are real.
on September 23rd, 2013 at 1:41 am
OK, I finally thought of a real one. A friend has a granddaughter named Peony, pronounced Pee-OWN-ee.
on September 23rd, 2013 at 6:03 am
my friend named her children Karma Destiny (girl), Justice Honesty (boy) and Judicial Truth (boy) nickname Juda. I actually kind of like Juda and Karma.
on September 24th, 2013 at 12:10 am

I know a Sy, a Zara, a Unique–all girls. I’ve also met a woman named Venice. My name was given to about 20 girls in 2011.
on November 20th, 2013 at 10:47 am
My dad is the only person I’ve ever met named Gyle. He is an awesome guy, and I love him dearly, but he has this thing with names–my little sister was almost Cherubida Rose……. 😀 now she’s Emmalee.
And, a young woman who at age 6 was adopted from Romania bears the name Betinia.
My best friend’s name is Magdalena.
My pastor wanted to name his youngest son Angus–he decided on Zechariah Tre, instead.
My mother knew a girl in high-school named Ima Hooker….. 🙁 can you imagine?
I have an aunt LuIsla, and a cousin LuRae(mother and daughter).
These may not be extremely out there names, but they seemed unusual to me!
on December 13th, 2013 at 6:58 am
I grew up in an area with a large Native American population, so unusual names were a little expected. I have, seriously, gone to school with:
Tika (pn Tee-kah)
sisters Pepsi and Shasta
Jovi (yes, like Bon Jovi)
twin girls Zona and Zena
brothers Jade and Sterling
Tokala (pn Toe-ka-lah)
brothers Jarin, Jory, and Jakoda
brother and sister Key and Sunshine
Sky Bleu (boy)
Blue Butterfly (girl)

Juree (emphasis on the “u”)
twins Starley and Chrystal
And there was one girl whose parents named her Hallie (Holly) Eileen because she was born on Halloween.
on April 27th, 2014 at 10:49 am
A pair of twin girls named Storm and Stone. Little boy named Ove. My friend in middle school was named Echaria (a-chor-ee-uh), there was a creepy little girl named Spider too (she was albino, so her red eyes made her more creepy) and then I think she dyed her hair black. Met a girl named Honey Boo-Boo and when I worked as a nurse one mother named Marisa named her daughter Colton.
on April 28th, 2014 at 7:12 pm
I met a boy named Boo Boo. It was down in South Dakota. I asked the others if that was his real name, actually on his birth certificate, and they said, “Yeah. Why? Kinda weird, huh?”
on April 28th, 2014 at 7:25 pm
So I decided to sit down and think.
I remember going through my elementary yearbook years ago and there was a Pebbles that was a grade ahead of me.
My friend is always telling me how unique and cool this one boy’s name is. Not sure how to spell it, but it’s pronounced lodge-uh-win.
My other friend says her dad wanted to name her Summer Rain. Not unusual, but sounds pretty hippie-like.
My cousin’s name is Tzar. Everyone is always saying it’s so weird and a horrible name, but I think it’s pretty cool. It’s pronounced just ZAR, like “jar” but with a ‘z’.
My sister’s middle name is High. It’s my mother’s maiden name, so it’s cool, but if you didn’t know that then it would be weird.
Looking back at my family tree there’s a Zella. Great-great grandmother. I love that name! Apparently she was a horrible person though.
There’s a graveyard behind my house. There’s a Medora buried there. Always thought that was cool.
on May 30th, 2014 at 7:45 pm
I met a MeMe at my orthodontists. Not many of them!
Also there’s a little Vanity at the dance studio I used to go to.
And the worst, two girls named Hairlyn “Hairry” and Mankind “Manny”. Yes. They’re expecting another, and I am very anxious to see what they name it.
on May 31st, 2014 at 7:38 pm
I knew a little girl named Starr. And I used to babysit a girl named Ruey (prn Roo-E)
I also think I have an unusual name. Ive only ever seen it on two people. Me, and the grandma I was named after… Glenna
on June 1st, 2014 at 5:49 pm
So this is an old blog post, but I came across it and HAD to comment…
Deysy (Daisy, gone wrong.)
Kendrew (Yvenoushka’s brother)
Yvetslana (Called Luna. Yvenoushka and Kendrew’s sister.)
Hall (A surname name, so not that weird, but still. Hall. As in “hallway.” I thought his name was Paul for a good month after I met him.)
on July 1st, 2014 at 11:12 pm
I love Signature for a girl and Tatanya for a boy!
on July 2nd, 2014 at 6:04 am
on July 3rd, 2014 at 10:41 am
Coquina, a girl from Puerto Rico or Costa Rica. It’s after the rainforest frog the coqui but her feminization is also rock made up of shells
on August 2nd, 2014 at 2:52 pm
I know a Pebbles and a Phoenix and an Angel, plus a Liberty, all in my year at school. It sounds so funny compared to the Eric, Stephen, Robert etc. also in my class.
on August 2nd, 2014 at 2:53 pm
Oops nearly forgot Arjuna and his sister ANNAPURNA. Annapurna, seriously?!
on August 13th, 2014 at 12:39 pm
So, I was looking through a yearbook for a pageant last weekend. There were a BUNCH of made up, stereotypical “black girl names” on black girls, but the worse were the youngest group.
There were more bad ones, but those are the few I can remember right now off the top of my head. Kreation is the worse, imo!
on August 13th, 2014 at 3:35 pm
The first time I heard Isla on a person, I was floored. But I thought it was pretty and unique. I told my mom about it and had to explain it as “island without the nd” (This was before my nameberry days)
But, obviously, it’s not that crazy of a name
on August 13th, 2014 at 8:15 pm
I met a middle-aged man, a doctor nonetheless, whose first name was Sunshine. I asked him twice if he was serious, I was so embarrassed when he repeated yes with a sigh.
on August 14th, 2014 at 10:57 am
My mum’s best friend called her children Ruby, Gabriel, Caspian and Xantippie Rose. I know people with the middle names Kryton and Dow, they are both family names used on girls. My sister’s middle name is Napier as we are related to the mathematician John Napier, she hates it and her first name Lydia.
on August 14th, 2014 at 11:10 am
Good friend in high school, Sunshine, and her sister Cherish.

Ykatherina Alyeska- I have absolutely no idea how that is pronounced
Phat- I shouldn’t be putting down Asian names, but come on! It’s pronounced ‘fat’.
Kelissa and Harold- That is the oddest names for twins I have ever seen.
Sylez: Sounds like a bad girl or something? It’s a boy.
Huy Nguyen- It’s a combo of first and last names that makes it funny. It’s pronounced ‘we win’.
Thelma- For an elderly lady, sure, but not a middle schooler.
Royel Horn- Tell me you’re not picturing a unicorn or its horn right now.
Dymarie- Sounds like you’re saying “Die Marie!”
There’s someone who’s last name is Troublefield, but that’s not their parents fault. And a Conception.
Oh my gosh that was a lot… Oh well. It was fun!
on August 14th, 2014 at 11:45 am
For the one that says ‘Sylez’, it’s supposed to be ‘Stylez’.
on August 14th, 2014 at 2:06 pm

I went to school with a Phizannah she went by Phi (Fi-zanna). I think it’s very pretty and so is she! The worst was a girl I grew up with named Rovilla.
on September 5th, 2017 at 10:19 pm
When I as at school, there was an Organ (girl) and a Beauty who were some grades behind me. They weren’t related. I also remember a birth announcement from a while ago for a boy called Quadrat Cyclone James. All is siblings and mainstream names.
