    Um...I knew a kid named Utensil.

    Then my friend had a friend named Heaven.

    Then I knew someone who named their daughter Hoover.

    Then there was Skyla. That's my friend's cousin.

    A little girl that goes to my mother's school (she's a nurse) is named Sugar Girl.
    I was in love with a difficult man.

    Good lord.

    I know a kid called Skye. She's the friend of one of my other friends. And there's Dany (pronounced Day-nee). And a boy called Jan, said pronounced Yahn. There was another boy called Chunkit. Most of my friend have pretty normal sounding names.

    I have some neighbors who have uncommon names. One of them was Grenadine. I guess it sounds pretty nice, but I wouldn't want to be named after a drink. Another was Antoinetta, but besides that there weren't any more. And a name like that really isn't weird anyway.

    I'm sure there's more, but this is all I can think of right now.

    Dear me. But I still love those Ripley's Believe it or Not! books. They used to have the kind where they had all of the things they ever discovered in a series of chapter books. Man, I wish I could read them again, but I'm not in 5th grade any more. :mad:

    I only know one that's even close to crazy...we have a cashier at the store I work at named Cookie. (and sort of ironic that she used to be a bakery manager for another company years ago)

    Cookie isn't really that weird of a name...although in your case it is a good coincidence that she used to work in a bakery.

    That's right, Rab. They had this series of chapter books, each with many, many Believe it or Not!s in it. Very, very, interesting. But I don't think it's being published any more. When I first read them in 5th grade, the copies my teacher had were pretty old, so I'd guess that they're out-of-print or hard-to-find.
