Maverick.
I have to physically restrain myself from asking if any siblings will be called Goose or Ice-man.


I hadn't ever thought of naming a child that but now i have seen it I think I like it, I mentioned it to DH and he actually said he liked it too (a very big deal, that guy is terrible with baby names, says no to EVERYTHING)

I knew a boy called Rogan...not bad until you met his twin brother called Josh... their parents loved curry!

Annakin - yes, after the child that grew up to become Darth Vader

Achilles  nno2.gif

LeTissier - there was a guy called Matt LeTissier who used to play soccer for Southampton, who I assume was the inspiration. Sadly he wasn't that great a soccer player...

The first time I heard the name Banjo I thought it was odd - then someone explained the significance. What can I say, I grew up in the UK.

Thijson, I still have no idea how to pronounce the name.
sorry for my mulitple posts. I'm pretty sure this is pronounced TYSON. There's a lady on one of the MCN pages (FB) with a son who has the same name. Wasn't there someone on EB who used that spelling also? (Thijson)

I used to know a Jesus- his parents were mexican or something and it technically should have been pronounced 'Hey-zuess' but he got Jesus.

Kaydi is another strange one I know- not sure if it was made up or not.

I used to go to school with a Seemun- quite unfortunate ethnic name.


Jesus is a really common name in some cultures.

A lot of the time Jesus will be the kids first name but they go by their middle name.

Hehe, I wouldn't completely discredit the "working in family law" thing. My sister worked in Legal Aid, and said they had some quite ridiculous names in there. She substituted the real names for others that were similar but just as ridiculous.

Eg (when asked the names of his children) "Let's see... The oldest one is Ford, coz that's when we had the Mazda... and Then there's Holden, coz we had a Toyota by then.... Then the missuz  says, and this is funny... she says "Whaddaya wanna call this one" and I thought she said "Whaddaya want" so I said
"Winnie Blues" and so thats what we called her... huh huh"

Not the weirdest, but certainly the most unfortunate choice of first name on the parents part: Richard Bottom.

My DH works with a Richard Head, I've seen his business card.

Aurora Borealis

No joke... I love Aurora, but I can't say I would have put it with Borealis

One of my favourite authors as a kid was Paula Danziger, and the main character in one of her books was Aurora Borealis, I always thought it was an awesome name.

Windy, for a little girl, not sure if the mum (Asian descent, living in Asia) meant to call her the Anglo Wendy or if it is a legit name in her parts.

I've met a Windy.

Irishgirly- Mustafa is a very common Arabic name. The only reason I know this because DH's father is named this. Loosely translated it means Michael. DS1 is named after DH father who is no longer with us. I had a choice between Mustafa and Michael (which is what he called himself). I chose Michael.

I don't think she was saying that Mustafa was a weird name but rather the last name Kunt. The combination of the 2 when said aloud sound very similar to "Must have a c*nt"

Not really weird I guess, but last year I came across a little girl named Sparrow. There is also another little girl called Blessing that attends the same music group.

I had a teacher that taught at my highschool called Mrs. W a n k e
(pronounced w a n k y).

A relative gave their daughter the middle name 'Pebbles'.

And not 'weird' as such, but a whoopsie with the spelling. The dad had wet the baby's head a little too enthusiastically and put 'Victa' on the birth certificate paperwork rather than 'Victor'.
