A woman I used to work with had a granddaughter called Kiora-Lee! I really had to struggle not to ask her if the next one would be called Um Bongo!

My friend had some hippy neighbours who had twins (b & g) called Xerxes and Appolinata. The girl was known as Polly, but how do you shorten Xerxes?!

She'll be an adult now, but....


which I thought was lovely as a small child, but as we soon learnt at secondary school, it's a moderately toxic checmical compound.

Sorry, Annie, if you're reading this.

what about MJ's kids though, feel especially sorry for the last one - Prince Michael, Prince Michael II and BLANKET! at least his brothers had semi usable names.

MadameCastafiore Tue 14-Jul-09 10:19:10

Isn't Blanket his nickname?

ilikeyoursleeves Tue 14-Jul-09 10:19:12

Pocahontas. Yes, seriously. hmm

I met a baby whose middle name was Skania after her mother's HGV. If she'd been a boy it would have been the first name. Skania sounds more like a girls name to me though.

I know someone who plumped for Honey after rejecting Annie, because they were worried she would be teased because of the musical hmm

I used to register births in the south west and there was a family with the surname beans...yes, you guessed it, they named their poor son Heinz. I KID YOU NOT!!!

grin at R'Marni

dadintheshed Tue 14-Jul-09 10:51:46

ok i must have miss-read the MJ article.

However R'Marni is a stunner!

What about Porche? sorry if anyone's children are called these names by the way....actually, not really! It's all individual preference, I quite like Honey

Wiggy - not a nickname, was her name on her passport and drivers licence!

Heard a story once about a little girl called Choley (well that was how they pronounced it), and when asked how they spelled it the parents said C-H-L-O-E grin.

I also know of a Ferkin Yusef (!) (not sure if spelling correct)
