Strange names indeed – My high school age daughters were talking about some students with strange names. 1) Ladasha , spelled La-a and 2) Abseedee, spelled Abcd. I wish they were joking but truth is stranger they say. Where do parents get these ideas for names?

They want their little darling to stand out from the crowd. They don't think about how this will effect them later in life. How about the boys that have been named Espn? How seriously will someone with that kind of name be taken when it comes to get a real job? Oh, wait...........................never mind.

Because their children are unique (gag), they want a name to show the world just how special they are; the poor children spend their young lives spelling their names for people and they can never find those cutesie things with their names on them, which young children love. I am so glad my DS and DD did not choose to use what I call "soap opera" names. Almost as bad as 'special' names is varying ways to spell a name. In one class where I work, there are 3 girls with spellings of the same name... an Ashleigh, an Ashlee and an Ashley. There are also a Meghan, a Meagan, and a Megan in the same class. There are 2 boys in another class named Colby; one spelled Colby and the other Colbeigh. Don't even get me started on how many different ways I've seen Brittany spelled. (yes, I've even seen it as Brit-knee)

And what is with the..erm..names like Jalisha, Janisha, Kalisha, Morticia (ok, that one is famous) etc...are they combinations of 2 other names?

I had a friend in high school named Vestel Tweeter

A good family friend nearly named her daughter Chamille Leeann Eder, until one of us said it real fast for her (Chameleon Eater)

The BEST name ever was Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Commacho (fictional, but still great! )

I really despise ghetto names. The -eesha/-isha names are those which make me most sick. Here for the shock:

I also hate some of the "creative" spelling of names. Mykl and Ryne. Yea. Not nice.

And here for more really awful "creativity". Would you rather be named Lunt or Hagbert? I don't agree ALL those names are bad, found my cat's name on that list.

Also I have trouble with names like Hope and Faith. They just make me shudder.

But... in my days and it's still too common, parents wanted their kids to have names to be JUSSST like the other kids. It's just as repulsive as trying to make your baby "special" by giving it an ugly name. I have a name that is so common here I want to cry. I don't even answer to it, barely react to it. It also became a generation name, so everyone with my name is 35-50. Gag, puke! It annoys me that my parents wouldn't want me to be at least SLIGHTLY unique. I already changed my surname long ago, and when I feel up to it I will have a go at my other names.

How hard can it be to be both a little creative and not totally whacked?

my cousins wife was a teacher in the Cincinnati school system and she taught two kids named Orangello and Lemongello. ****head (pronounced ****eed) was another one. I named one of my goats Hoolietta. This was the name of the sherriff's daughter in the movie The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
