Hmm.. people I"ve known with odd names... phew..so many.

 

Julie Caesar who I went to school with.

Autumn Wheat, one of my sister's friends (not a stirpper incidentally)

Kandi Kane, the girl next door..seriously..and my bro had such a crush on her

Major Battles, owned a music shop in the town I grew up in

Bryan O'Brien, friend of my father's

Randy Johnson, *snickers*.. went to church with him

Crystal Jewel, schoomate

 

And my own mother's first and middle name is... get this.. Bonnie Clyde. My grandma swore it had nothing to do with the notorious bank robbers, but somehow I just can't help but to believe.

A teacher named Cinnamon Lane.

A teacher? Really? Hasn't there been some research that indicates women with names like Cinnamon, Candi, and Mystique are more likely to end up as strippers? So it sounds like she beat the odds.

 

 

Just to let you in on a little secret, strippers don't use their real names.

 

"Mystique"s real name is probably something like Michelle, Heather or Jennifer (three of the more common stripper real names)

However, my brother in law topped that quite easily with one of his students. I will spell it phonetically for you

 

shi theed (one word two syllables).

That name is mentioned in the Freakonomics book. The author examined birth records and catalogued high vs low economic class, white vs black, etc names. Talks about how the popularity of names cycles as lower classes start using high class names and of course the high class names change.

In all seriousness, I AM thinking about giving my next kid (if it is a boy) a strong Greek name, and start some sort of tradition...

 

Achillies. I dare you. ::P:

 

 

For a strong, male, Greek name, I've always been partial to Theron. It means "hunter." My second male cockatiel was Theron Damian. I've always liked that name, but I seriously doubt SD would go for it for our next child. :unsure:

 

Theron. I like it. I actually like Hunter as a name, too.

 

I've always liked unusual names. Must be why I married a guy named Aubrey... (derived from Germanic Oberon, the king of the elves. Think about that next time you meet a little girl named Aubrey, as it seems to have become a popular female name!)

 

Names for our potential gremlins have been picked out for years

boy: Gryphon Vanyel

girl: Zoya Rain

 

Don't ask me where Gryphon came from, but we both like it. And we can just shorten it to "Grif". Vanyel came from Mercedes Lackey's Magic's Price trilogy, he is the main character, and still one of my favorite "heroes". Plus, I like how similar it is to a common name, but is still different.

Zoya is for the mother of a Russian family that my husband did a sister-cities exchange with in high school. Unlike the rest of the exchange students, who were housed with wealthier Russian families (so their standard of living would be fairly similar to the States) he ended up with a relatively common family. They lived in an apartment building, and each floor had one bathroom that *everyone* shared, as an example. When the sister-cities people found out, they where a bit aghast and offered to find better accommodations for Aubrey, but he refused. He wanted to see how people lived in Russia, and the family he was with were wonderful. Since then he has always wanted to name his daughter Zoya. Rain comes from me. For some strange reason, I really like it as a female's name, and always wanted to name my daughter Rain.

 

Strange names I've encountered:

Gaylord and Gunnar (kids in my highschool)

Trout Fishing In America (serious. One of my husband's friends had his name legally changed to this)

a Mr.& Mrs Roach (customers)

Dairy Hill (a rather well endowed young lady in my stepdad's highschool)

Phuc Yu (husband's high school friend)

Neil Downs (friend)

Merri, Kerri, and Terri (siblings in my college)

Michigan has a running back from Ohio named Mister Simpson.

 

Bubba is very common throughout the South, but I've never met one that it was his Christian name it is a nickname generally.

 

I knew a JEB once, James Edward Beauregard.

 

I also knew an EBO, Elijah Baker Olsen.

 

I knew a girl named Chiquita, pronounced Chee-qwet-tuh. She was often heard muttering, "I ain't no #%&^#%$ banana.

 

My son's name was too long for a SS card but was put in its entirety on his birth certificate: Roman Gabriel Cherokee Christian Counterman thus RGtripleC. I figure he has enough names that he can find something he likes: Roman, Romy, Gabriel, Gabby, Gabe, Cherokee, Christian, Chris.

 

Strangly though he is generally refered to as Sweetpea or Bean.

Just at one point then she could've turned into an Airman, Fireman, Constructionman, Hospitalman, or Dentalman...
