    Unusual names of real people

    Do you ever run across an unusual or oddly spelled name in your local newspaper?

    Do you ever see a name and think, "I bet that person has to spell their name everywhere they go"?

    If so, post the name here!

    Here are some examples from recent birth announcements:

    Braylee

    Jasaai

    Janlucas

    Se'maya

    Jaquanvion

    Shermeke

    The ker8tive spelling trend is one of my pet peeves. What is wrong with Quinn and Winter??

    A couple I have run across:
    Bourbon
    Tequila <--- What is up with naming your baby after alcohol!?

    Desire <--- pronounced Desiree - did these people not know that "desire" is a word!?

    The three above are siblings.
    Imani

    Armani
    Bacardi
    ...and two celeb baby names:

    RGW, I don't know where you come up with these names, but you are the champion of finding the weird!
    I am still flabbergasted about what celebrities name their children...case in point, the poor daughter of Penn Gillette that has to go through life with a name like Moxie Crimefighter. There is another named Pilot Inspektor who is the child of another weirdo whose name escapes me, but it is probably normal. Wonders never cease, huh?

    Re: Unusual names of real people

    Every Sunday my paper lists all the babies born at the local hospital ... and believe it or not, these are some of the babies' first names! You'd think I live in some exotic location, but this is your average Southern county.

    Does your paper list the new babies?

    For some reason my local paper does not list the names in the birth announcements. It just says something like "Baby boy born to Joe and Jane Smith at Xyz Hospital".
