Unusual Name Day


There are some strange holidays. For instance - March 3 is Unusual Name Day! Above are some "normal" names. In honor of this holiday I thought I would share a few unusual names I found.

Jack Alope
Claire Annette
Sharon Apartment
Ben Around
Chris P. Bacon
Cary Baggs
Ima I. Ball
Robin Banks
Sandy Beach
Frank N. Beans
Ima June Bug
Windy Day
I. M. Freezing
Gladys Friday
Phil Harmonic
Barry D. Hatchett
M. T. Head
Rufus Leaking
Ima Looney
Ima Loser
Angie O'Plasty
Phil Osophy
Elmer Sklue
Starr E. Sky
Jacob Sladder
Fay Tality
Aaron D. Tires
Peter Andy Wolfe
Alyson Wonderland

These are all actual names and there are lots more out there. I have to wonder why someone would do this to their child. I guess you wouldn't forget their name though!

Too funny! My daughter is a neo natal nurse. She has told us of some really strange names that people are naming their babies now. Unbelievable.

Hugs!

My second cousin married a guy named Sterling Ring. lol

Living in the South, we come across a long of really WEIRD names, many of which you can't pronounce. I think some were mumbling afterward and the name was written down.

You do really wonder what people are thinking don't you!

Brooke said...

i was thinking the same thing - this is worse than celebrities naming their kids "apple"

of course i share a name with a soap opera character, so it gets interesting in the breakroom here at work when i over hear someone talking trash about "Brooke". :P

Cindy said...

I have always been fascinated by names and really wonder about some of the names out there! What ARE people thinking?!

Pat said...

M.T Head is just cruel. What are parents thinking? These are names people have to live with their entire life. Couldn't you just see some one running for President named Frank N. Beans!

We once knew a family by the name of Butt and one by the name of Buzzard.
When I was dating boys, I ALWAYS paid attention to their last name. Hahahahaha!

Thanks for sharing this list. Who would have thought that these are real names? I think Ima Looney is the funniest. What are these parents thinking? Glad to come across your blog today.

Oh, how fun! My mom has a kid in her school named Enchantress. Yep. I may not have the spelling correct, but you get the idea. ;)

Recently I met a little girl whose name I loved: Precious Strange.

Years ago I knew a boy named Will Floss. His dentist no doubt was glad to know it!

Great post, Mari!
