Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin (of Coldplay) were photographed leaving the London hospital where G gave birth to their daughter - they proudly announced that the little girl was to be called 'Apple'.

This has prompted a spate of comments in newspapers - such as 'let's hope she retains her parents' characteristic svelteness, or the Paltrow-Martins may have a Big Apple on their hands in later years'... ! and... 'If the child grows up fair haired and pretty like her mother - will she be called a Golden Delicious?'

I just wondered about any other unusual or odd names....

I have heard of a kid in Fl. a few years back name 5/8. There are Frank Zappas kids Moon Unit and Dweezle. Some African American kids have some pretty interesting names. (Lashawndralynn, _______isha, _______qua, Latinkle)
Once knew a poor guy named Siraaron. His mom while carrying him dreamed he was a knight named, you guessed it, Aaron. I think he is now in jail for multiple homicides. king.gif

My wife's name is Tempie. I don't think that's all that unusual, but you wouldn't believe how many people get it wrong. She's called Temple, Tammy, Trixie, and Temmy almost on a daily basis. Good thing she has a sense of humor.

My ex-wife was a pediatric nurse. One day she told me of a young mother who named her daughter "Pay-ju-mays" (phonetic spelling). When the doctor asked her where she got it, she said she saw it in a Sears catalog. She then spelled it for him. P-a-j-a-m-a-s.

I knew a girl who was named "Amber Fawn Rainwater McIntyre". We all know what her parents were doing in the '60s.

There are also were a couple of spokesman for native rights here in Canada named "Milton Born with a Tooth" and "Matthew Cooncome". I had also seen a young native girl being interviewed on the news some years back who was named "Brenda Frying Pan".

Don't forget "Dick Trickle" from the racing circuit. I'll never forget the first time I saw that name.

People get my wife's name wrong all the time also. Probably the worst is Dementia tongue.gif

I think the funniest and most terrible names I have heard yet is by two little boys the mother gave them. One was lemonjello (pronounced leMONjello) and orangejello (pronounced OrANGello).

I still can't get over that Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter "Apple." The big joke around here is if Chris Martin was Italian, they could have called her "Apple Martini." tongue.gif biggrin.gif

My wife's name is Shancy sounds like fancy, many people say Chance. Her grandfather gave the name to her after an old Italian woman he knew years ago. Thank God he won the name game because her mother wanted to name her Raema-Jean. I got my name Eugene no mioddle name Ruschenberg after both my Parentsd Gary Eugene and Pamela Jean it was the only think they wouldn't fight over.

When I was busy doing some family research a few years ago I came across some strange name in my family.

Desiree Gordon
Patience Gordon

I had to look up to make sure I wasn't in Pennsylvania (dutch country) with all of the strange names. I love the state of Pennsylvania (pretty and green) but there are some strange sounding town names up there.

A girl in my class at school was called Theresa Green. When said with a Scots accent it sounds like 'Trees are green'.... She was known as Spring - short for Spring is coming.....

I have a male cousin. His name is a proud, old Scots one - Torquil.... You cannot imagine how many different pronounciations people use.
