I have a VERY unusual name. In fact its so unusual that if I told you and you googled it the only thing that would come up would be my Facebook profile (I tried it...blush...so as I may need to post incognito one day I can't tell you.

Anyway despite not being paricularly thrilled with my name when I was a teenager, I love it now and would love to name forthcoming DC's with something unusual.

What are the most unusual names you have heard of for both sexes???

AliBean Sun 16-Nov-08 18:58:14

Hmmmm I think perhaps unusual names that are not utterly mad!!

I know a Valhalla, known as Halli. Really suits her but quite odd sounding at first

AliBean Sun 16-Nov-08 19:15:24

Is Sienna still considered unusual these days with Ms Miller in the public eye?

AliBean Sun 16-Nov-08 20:27:16

CoolYourJets - Noooo not as far as I know!! But you see unless you know me in RL you wouldn't think of my name as (in the immortal words tigger...) I'mmmmm the only one!!

AliBean Sun 16-Nov-08 21:37:25

No no tractor related names here...

Perhaps I should re-title this tread and ask what unusual names do you like (and would use if you could)??

I know a Fabulousa - female. hmm
