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 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???

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

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

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)??
