A cousin of mine named their daughter Persephone, which had us all talking as it's so unusual.
What are the most unusual names you've ever heard of?

Weasel for a little girl.

One of the actors on London's Burning (years ago) called his daughter Glastra (using initials from members of his family)

My Mum's middle name is Vena (pronounced Vee -na).
She has no idea where her parents got it from as they died when she was young.
I think it might be Indian but not sure and don't know what it means.
My great grandad was alos called Marmaduke, you don't here that often these days, can't think why lol

Oooh I like Marmaduke. We know a little Gandalf.

Antigone... which like Persephone I rather liked!

Heard a mum shout Bertie, Gertie & Jemima. Not unusual per se - but it is round where we live (about 200 Tylers, Ryans etc)

Drizzle. I mean Rain is bad enough in the happy clappy stakes, but Drizzle? hmm

Also heard of a kid back home (NZ) called Rhythm Ecstasy. Rhythm Ecstasy Smith, or some such. I don't actually know this person you understand - read about him in the papers, probably up on some sort of GBH charge...

Friday, She was cool but she got so many jokes every day about her name! Also, Barley and Dimples.

CardyMow Fri 12-Feb-10 15:26:56

Mhairi. Pronounced Vaa-ri. Family member. Missi, so called because when her brother first saw her he said 'hello missi' and it stuck!

Caravaggio which I liked because it sounds eccentric. I can imagine him as a scholarly, old gentleman doing Leonardo Da Vinci type stuff in a book stuffed study. Of course now he's about 15 so he has to grow into the name.

This will end in tears.

I have met two older ladies called Miffy and Muffy. That goodness Muffy doesn't live in the UK.

I knew a Cinderella and a Gaylord Hillary Burke

Lighteningbugs Fri 12-Feb-10 15:36:16

I also know a Tinkerbella

arolf Fri 12-Feb-10 15:37:36

I know an Antigone too - was a bit hmm at first, but think it's lovely now.

Loudlass - I know a few Mhairis, it's fairly common north of the border!
