    An old acquaintance of mine named her kid Heaven Leigh Love.

    also, there was a big to do while in highschool over a guy name Haywood Jablome, poor guy, his parents must have hated him to name him that!

    i remember a while ago a case, I think it was in sweden, where the state sued the parents for naming their kid Zip-a-dee-do-dah. They said it was cruel and unusual punishment, and the state won forcing the parents to change the name. Really, if you're such a fan of the film name the kid bluebird or Remus, not Zip!

    I"m lucky, my mother said she wanted to name me summer dawn, but I was born in the afternoon, so it didn't work.

    Also, a woman at work has a grandkid called Ibis Moon.

    I had to send an account past due notice (in a former career) to Mr. Dick Dix.

    My cousin went to school with a girl named Candy Store.

    When I was in high school, I had an English teacher named Miss Dick (we used to joke that her first name was Anita, but it wasn't. It was Carol).

    I've known two Mitch Mitchell's

    My husband knows a man named Pinky Brown

    When I worked in the mortgage business, I came across all kinds of crazy names. I wish I could remember all of them! The ones I can remember right now:

    Phuc Dang (I love that one)
    Uniroyal (like the tire - it was his first name :rolleyes )
    We also had a customer with the last name "Growcock" - we'd laughed at that one for months.

    I know there's a million more; I'm so mad that I'm drawing blanks right now!

    There is a woman customer here with the name of Rusty Bumpers.
    My sister went to school with Holly Wood.
    I went to school with Wednesday Whitehead.

    If I think harder...there are more...

    I don't know him personally, but actor Jason Lee named his son Pilot Inspektor, which I think is slightly cruel.

    Where I work we deal with dental claims and there is a dentist named Peter Swallow. I have also seen Dr. Payne, Dr. Hurtz, etc.

    The man who sold me my first car I ever bought was a 7 foot tall black man named Ivory White.

    Daggy -- I had a dentist named Dr. Slaughter. I went to school with his kids too.
