What names have you heard recently to make you stop in your tracks and wonder if the parents are a bit mad?

My most recent favourite is... Flossy, for a girl.
Made worse because my dads pet name for me is Flossy, or Floss. So to hear it as an ACTUAL name just makes me gawp.

Worst boys name - Banjo.

Willoughby. More because he's the villain of the piece. Like calling your son Darth.

Dotty is a local baby. Baby Alan made me shock

I did meet a baby Ian recently. I think it only made me "huh?" because you don't hear it often, not because there is anything wrong with it. Around my way you are generally ready for Harry-Josh-Charlie-George-Fred, there's a small pool of names here. Ian's surely due a comeback.

I live near a village called Rawson and as kids my brother and I called our hamster Flossy. These are not real names!
