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.

I didn't, but I think she may have done! I knew her through a friend more really...

Hmmm, trazzle, I wouldn't imagine there would be many going about! Did you study an environmental type degree by any chance....?!

I love your list Amazingmumof6 - except for "Hero" - which is an old name, its Greek and even appears in Shakespeare, so in my book its fine. The rest of the trumped up names are all a bit "huh"

I don't get it blush

Worked with a girl called Amber. Not unusual I hear you say, but you'd think mr and mrs Bush would've thought that through a bit more.

little cherublegs

what do you think about twins called Adam & Eve? ( true story)

just not right.

Futterby Wed 22-May-13 00:15:14

I know three sisters called Daisy, Lily and Poppy. I just think... no. Are the parent's trying to grow a meadow...? What went through their minds?!

Once in a while, I actually crack a proper smile. smile

TheBuskersDog Tue 21-May-13 23:45:34

Klay anyone?

Littlecherublegs Tue 21-May-13 23:39:44

I heard of sisters called Heather & Heaven.

Also siblings Harvey & Harper.

Nothing much wrong with the individual names but as sib-sets...???

I was in a shop the other day and there was a tannoy announcement "Aslan to the checkouts please"... Thought I must've misheard so I causally headed over to the checkout to have a look at his name badge and sure enough...
Great name if you can carry it off!

Christmas. And not even a December baby!

Flossy is short for Florence I think.

Banjo Patterson is a famous Australian poet - that's probably where that name came from? If you're not on MN then fanjo really means nothing...

(Granted Andrew is Banjo's real name, i'd take Banjo over Andrew! smile)

In play group a couple of years ago I heard a woman say 'Where is Praise The Lord'?! Enoch is a grandson of Adam so may have been given to children of very religious parents.

February-Rose is lovely.

Not read the whole thread so hope this hasn't been said...

A parent at my DC's school has named her new baby boy Spartacus!

Can you imagine having to introduce yourself as "Hello, i'm Spartacus..."

People just won't be able to resist...wink
