I went to school with a girl named Carrie Knupp. Remember the old Hallmark commercials? When you 'Carrie Knupp' to send the very best. biggrin.gif

Ever hear of the woman who thought that hospital named her child for her? On the bracelet it said Fe-mal-e.

My wife had an unlce named Zendell and we have a neighbor named Darby. Growing up, we had a neighbor named Parthenia.

I never liked me name much, but after seeing some of the ones posted here, I think Allen is just fine! smile.gif Actually my mom wanted to name me Alan, but the docter misspelled it on the birth certificate so she just left it as it was.

My son's name is James Stillwater and we call him by his middle name of Still or Stilly. One night we decided to go a road trip and we ended up Stillwater. We forgot to pack something but now I can't recall what it was...

My mom used to volunteer as a babyrocker in the neo-natal unit of our local hospital. I wish I could find the list she made of some of the weird things that the locals were sticking their kids with. The joke among the nursery nurses was that they were waiting for a mom to name their son, "Merconium."

used to work with a man named Plum Tree. That was his own choice of name because he hated his father so much that he didnt want to use the name that he had been given at birth.

I've seen some strange names in my life, for instance old names coming directly from chivalry like Tancrède. Some regional names like those from the Basque country : a friend of mine called his boy and girl Txomin and Mirentzu. I thougt he had adopted some chineese children.... biggrin.gif
My sister had a boyfriend whose name was Bienvenue (wich means "welcome", and he was indeed laugh.gif )
I read in a newspaper recently that some people began to give their children some brands as names (like supermarket Auchan, shoes Eram, and I know a little girl whose name is Mégane Renault - the name of a car...) seeing that, I think Apple is a beautiful name ! biggrin.gif

There was a boy at my school named Alexanda. Apperently there was some mix-up with the spelling at the hospital, and he ended up with that. A bunch of teachers have called him Alexandra thinking that he was a girl...

I've known a Dorcus, which is also an unfortunate name...

There is a story that goes around Glasgow, I think it may be an urban legend.
A small child attended his first day at school. When the teacher asked his name, he said he was Gooey.
"Gooey?" asked the teacher, " Is that a nickname?"
"No" said the little boy,"it's my name."
The teacher didn't want to make a big thing on his first day and so decided to ask the parent when he was collected.
when the mother arrived, the teacher asked how to pronounce his name.
"Gooey," replied the mother.
The teacher was astonished and again asked if it was a nickname. Again the answer was no. The teacher then asked how the child had gotten this name.
The mother answered that they had chosen out of a book of childrens names.
When asked how to spell it , she answered "G-U-Y".
When they chose the name , they had never heard it pronounced. The child was called GUY. rolleyes.gif

When I was in the Army, I was, unfortunately, the guy with the funny name. Try being in the Army with the last name of Sargent. Not fun. Especially when I actually made the rank of Sergeant. That's right. Sergeant Sargent. It was a pain in the *ss to say the least. dry.gif

Normal is a relative term. For some reason it is not a term my relatives use to describe me.
